Pam's Baked Eggs

A recipe for baked egg, onions, mushrooms, & sharp cheddar caught my eye over on Pam’s site. For The Love of Cooking. This morning I woke up to blowing snow and had to sweep it in front of the door to let the dog out. A good day to stay in & fix the egg bake for an early brunch for the wife & I.

It was a good chance to use my new carbon steel skillet too. I remember my Mother using one & I have been wanting to try one. They were hard to find & expensive, mostly at outdoor cooking supplies. Now I found a lot of choices at Amazon & I settled for one of the cheaper ones from World Cuisine, a 10 inch one. It’s a purdy thing with a speckled handle. I washed it then seasoned it. My first cook was bacon, eggs, & mush. The bacon stuck a little but the eggs & mush did great. My next cook was fried potatoes, they always seem to stick for me, no sticking at all & got a nice brown on them. Easy to clean too, I used a scotch pad on it & re-seasoned it with a light coat of cooking spray, on a burner set at high until it starts to smoke then set off & ready to go again. I like the fact I can use metal utensils in it.

I sautéed the onions & mushrooms until browning some, added the ham then assembled in a ramekin. I baked for 5 min then under the broiler to set up the egg whites. I made one for my wife then did one for me, a larger one & did all in the skillet. We had some Arnolds flat bread toast with it. Tasted pretty darn good, Thanks Pam for the recipe!

Woke up to this today!
