Eggstravaganza

Hoo! One of those weeks folks.

We’re coming up on Winter Carnival week, so I have a few responsibilities there. Mostly just rehearsing for a concert. Doctor’s appointment for a check up this week. A few friends visiting. All good things! And of course, I’m getting this show we’re writing started – Thanks so much to those who are following our theatrical adventures at the show blog and on Facebook … The Facebook Group climbed to over 100 members in one day! If you’re on Facebook, the group name is “At Saranac,” the title of the show.

My friend Hideaway Hill gave me the best idea – Share my egg recipes. Being as we have tons of eggs from the girls, I have a ton of neat recipes. Here they are folks. They’re in my own recipe language, so if you have a question, just ask. Catch you before the weekend – I gotta go cook some eggs.

Breakfast Casserole
½ lb sausage – cooked
5 eggs
3 cups of cubed bread
1 ½ cups of milk
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 t dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all in large bowl – let sit so bread can soak. Butter 9×12 dish – pour all in – bake @ 375 for an hour.
*
Egg Noodles
l cup of flour for each egg
3 tbsp. rich milk for each egg
salt to taste
Mix together, might have to add a little flour to make a stiffer dough, or if you like the feel of the soft dough, just roll it using more flour to keep it from sticking . . . let dry for awhile, cut into strips and drop into boiling broth.  . . .cook until tender.
*
Baked Eggs
Place one or two eggs in a ramekin or in muffin tin with 1/2 tbsp of butter underneath. Add tbsp of cream to the top of each. Top with parsley and chives and cheese of your choice. Simmer in a pan of water on top of stove until done, or bake at 400F with a pan of water underneath.

Mayo Hater’s Egg Salad
Hard Boiled Eggs
Garlic Salt
Small Amount of Sour Cream
Finely Chopped Onion
Parsley
*
Yorkshire Pudding
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
4 tbsp. oil or drippings
Beat flour, salt, eggs, milk together until very smooth, scraping bowl occasionally. Refrigerate 2 hours or longer. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Measure oil into 8 x 8 x 2 inch square Pyrex pan. Heat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into pan and bake for 20-30 minutes. Do not open door. Serve immediately. When fresh from oven good Yorkshire pudding is a puffy irregular shaped golden mass, unlike any other baked dish. On standing a few minutes, the surface settles more or less evenly and when cut the outer crust is tender, crisp and center soft and custardy.

German Pancakes
(this makes enough for a pyrex dish approx 10X15 –
the next larger than 9X13)
9 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  While oven is heating, place 2 TBS butter in the pyrex dish and place in oven to melt.  Combine above ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Take pan out of oven and swirl butter so it covers the bottom.  Pour batter over top.  Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.  It will puff up and look very interesting while it bakes, then falls when taken out of the oven.  The kids will love watching it! If you want to use a 9X13 size pan, reduce the eggs to 6, the milk and flour to 1 cup each, and use 1/2 tsp salt.  I still use the 2 TBSP butter.
*
Fried Rice
1 – 2 green onions, as desired
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
4 tablespoons oil for stir-frying, or as needed
4 cups cold cooked rice
2 tablespoons light soy, oyster, or teriyaki sauce desired
cooked chicken or pork as desired
Wash and finely chop the green onion. Lightly beat the eggs with the salt and pepper. Heat a wok or frying pan and add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the eggs. Cook, stirring, until they are lightly scrambled but not too dry. Remove the eggs and clean out the pan.
Add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the rice. Stir-fry for a few minutes, using chopsticks or a wooden spoon to break it apart. Make sure it’s nice and dry. Stir in the soy sauce or oyster sauce as desired. When the rice is heated through, add the scrambled egg back into the pan. Mix thoroughly. Stir in the green onion. Toss in some cooked chicken or pork if you like.

    We are coming to your house! Really, where else can you go for fun chicken & RV tales, sit down to a great egg speciality dish (mind you, fresh eggs from the “girls”), wash it down with homemade wine, maybe a sneak peak at the writings of a chamber musical and then be serenaded by no other than your hands at the piano!

    Am I missing anything to add to the list?…

    Hope to get to Saranac for the Parade. Is the Ice Palace finished yet.? Recipes sound egg-zotic and I must try them all. Enjoy my home town. I did.
