Take out puff pastry rub with egg mixture then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese or shredded pepper jack. Use a rolling pin to push the cheese into the dough. Cut the pastry into 8 strips. Lay a piece of bacon on each piece. Twist, cut in half and brush both sides with an egg wash (1 egg to I tablespoon milk whipped together) to brown the dough. Bake in 375 degree oven on a rack sitting on top of a pan lined with foil for 30 minutes. I like to use maple, brown sugar or hickory smoked bacon.
Since we happen to have a generous supply of eggs from our happy, healthy roaming chickens I’m always looking for more recipes using eggs. This morning I fixed baked eggs in muffin tins. First spray the muffin pan with your favorite oil, then line each tin with pepperoni or Canadian bacon or ham. Then break an egg into the pan and top with tomato slices and basil. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. It’s that simple. You can add cheese if you like and other toppings. This can be fun to let your guests make their own too just the way they want it. We had it for breakfast with our coffee but brunch is good also.
I’m not sure when Rose Carol learned how to make Eggs Benedict, all I can remember is ever since I’ve visited her in California she has made it. She serves it for most of the holiday mornings because her family insists and lucky for us she does it when we come to visit. She makes it look so easy but I’m sure by now she could make it in the dark! First she puts the melted butter and real lemon juice in the blender then she places the Canadian bacon on a pan and puts it in the oven to heat. Now she is ready to make the poached eggs. While the eggs are cooking she toasts the English muffins. When everything is ready is puts it together and everyone enjoys eating this wonderful breakfast. The secret I think is in the sauce. I can remember my brother and I going out for breakfast one morning and since he had lived in with her in California for a while and he saw eggs Benedict on the menu his mouth started to water and he had to order it! Well, when it came to his disappointment he took one bite and sent it back! Then he said to me “I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to taste like Rose’s, after all she makes the best!”
How did the Romans know how to build bridges to last so long? From my understanding this is the oldest operational Roman Bridge in the world. As I stand here looking to the other side I see the town square where the Roman theater is and restaurants and shopping markets. Just a 10 minute walk. I feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz as I stand here looking beyond. It’s lasted this long, it’s not going to crumble now! So here I go.
Oh, wait. There’s a Hostel right next to this bridge and it’s time here for sangria and tapas. I can already smell the potato omelettes cooking with hints of onion and peppers. I must try this now!
And I have no idea what kind of tree this is or if it’s against the law to pick from it, but I will be finding out!
I never seem to be able to fix a recipe just the way it is written. In this one I added walnuts and about 3 tablespoons brown sugar. I also used sour cream instead of yogurt. It made 24 small muffins and was wonderful with our morning coffee. ☕️☕️
