I’ve been trying to be much better about having breakfast ready for my husband by the time he’s up, showered, dressed and ready for work in the mornings. I feel certain June Cleaver never just rolled over when her husband got up in the mornings headed off to his office for work, thinking that Ward could find himself some cereal or oatmeal or just a cup of coffee on his way out the door. Now, maybe when she was sick, but I feel certain she would have had to have been on her death bed before she would have done that.
And then there is my Grandmother. She was up before the sun every single morning making breakfast, pulling out my Granddaddy’s clothes for the day, preparing his lunch to take with him to work and making a huge, country style breakfast.
I feel absolutely useless in comparison.
To make myself feel a little bit better, I keep thinking of quick and easy breakfasts that I can pull together in a jiffy that get me just a touch closer to June-status. These baked eggs sure do put me closer and I can actually throw them together before I’ve gotten all the sleepies out of my eyes. Truth be told, I’ve even prepped them the night before so that all I have to do is place them in the oven to bake when I first get up in the morning. That shaves about 5 minutes out of the preparation time, which equals one hit of the snooze button.
Which brings me to this question. Did June wear her pearls at breakfast, too? If so, I’ve seriously got to get a better alarm clock.
Here’s the recipe for these Baked Eggs with Salsa. They certainly aren’t the fanciest breakfast you’ll ever make, but they are easy, filling, and definitely tide you over until lunch time.
Baked Eggs with Salsa Recipe
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup Monterrey Jack cheese
- 1/4 cup salsa
- salt and pepper
- parsley optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crack one egg into each baking dish. Divide cheese among baking dishes and sprinkle on top of egg. Place baking dishes onto a baking sheet and place into the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the egg is set according to your preference.
- Remove from the oven and top each with a teaspoon of salsa, salt and pepper and parsley, if desired.
- Serve warm.
Enjoy and Happy Monday!
