Brunch for a Bunch by quornflour

 

Last week I invited my cousin over for brunch; then decided to also invite a few friends.

I failed to think about this fact while I was grocery shopping. So Sunday morning rolls around and I was like, “oh crapizola, what am I going to make?”

Luckily I had basic breakfast foods so all was not lost.

A few months back while I was visiting Seattle I went to a place that served “baked eggs” this was a peculiar idea to me. Not sure why, since really it makes perfect sense, especially for someone who really just likes poached or hardboiled eggs.

This gave birth to an idea… See a friend of mine had recently moved to NYC and didn’t have space for all of his cast iron cookware. I promised to return it when he had room again so that he wouldn’t have to put it in storage and have it potentially suffer from water damage. I am just nice like that.

So after reading up on baked eggs, I decided that I would do just that but rather than using the oven I would “bake” them in the Dutch oven.

So here is what you need:

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 slices Sliced Bacon
  • 1 cup Onions
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Jalapeno Pepper
  • 4 Garlic Clove
  • 6 red potato
  • 1 1/2 cups Radishes
  • 12 Large Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Gorgonzola Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 3 oz Sharp Cheddar (shredded) – optional
  • 12 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 12 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Water

Directions

Cut bacon strips in half and cook in a cast iron Dutch oven.
When bacon is cooking chop onions, garlic and jalapeños, mix together with olive oil.
Remove bacon and set aside, remove most of the rendered fat.
Put back over heat and add onion mix and cook until caramelized.
Add finely chopped radishes.
Chop potatoes into 1/2″ cubes add to Dutch oven with 1/4 Cup of water.
Cook until soft and browned.
Add gorgonzola cheese and mix.
Spread potatoes out evenly in the bottom of the pot.
Crack eggs over top of potatoes. Pour milk evenly over the eggs.
Place lid on top and put the burner on low. Cook until egg whites are white.
Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Serve by scooping an egg and the potatoes below, enjoy with a dollop of sour cream and hot sauce.

They turned out really well, everyone seemed to enjoy them, so that was awesome, and it was definitely the easiest way to make a dozen eggs at once without scrambling them all.
