Twice Baked Potatoes – They Take Longer, But At Least They’re More Complicated

I don’t do a lot of things in the kitchen purely for
esthetic reasons, but these twice baked potatoes are one of my more beautiful
exceptions to that rule. You can get almost the exact same flavors by just
adding stuff to a regular baked potato, but what you won’t get in that
scenario is the impressive, over-stuffed height, and gorgeous, golden-browned
crust seen here.


Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. For me, once in a
while, for those extra fancy dinners, the answer is a resounding yes. Taste is,
and always will be, the most important aspect of cooking, but when entertaining
guests on special occasions, don’t forget that you’re putting on a
show with the food. And when it comes to starchy side dishes, this is a great
way to express that flair for the dramatic.

Like I said in the video, this is a demonstration of
technique, and not necessarily a recipe I want you to follow verbatim. I will
list what I used below, since I’m required to by food blogger common law, but if there was ever a
recipe that you’d want to experiment with, this is the one.

By the way, since theres a certain amount of prep involved
here, you can make these ahead of time, up to the point of the second baking,
and then just finish when it gets closer to service. I hope you give this show
stopping side dish a try soon. Enjoy!

Baked Egg with Bacon, Asparagus, Tomato, and Extra Sharp Cheddar

Baked Egg with Bacon, Asparagus, Tomato, and Extra Sharp Cheddar

by Pam on March 6, 2014

I was in the mood for a baked egg this morning for breakfast. I looked in the refrigerator and found a leftover piece of bacon from my kids’ breakfast, some extra sharp cheddar, and a bit of asparagus from last nights dinner. I also threw in a few slices of grape tomatoes because I love them with eggs. I served this baked egg with toast to dip into the yolk. It was a terrific breakfast that filled me up and made me smile. I love the combination of flavors and I have a feeling I will be making this again tomorrow morning.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat two small ramekin with cooking spray.

Place a bit of bacon crumbles, a few tomatoes, a few pieces of asparagus, and a sprinkle of extra sharp cheddar cheese, into the ramekins. Crack an egg into the ramekin, being careful not to break the yolk. Add 1 tsp of milk into each, a few more bacon crumbles, tomatoes,asparagus, and a little more cheddar to the top of each. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place onto a baking tray and cook for 7 minutes; Turn the oven to broil and cook for another 5 minutes or until the whites are set but the yolk remains soft. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.

Broccoli, red pepper and cheese frittata

Eggs may be the most versatile ingredient ever. They fit perfectly into breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert. This broccoli, red pepper and cheese frittata recipe is a great way of using up a box of eggs and even better for making use of those little odd ends of ingredients we always seem to have lurking in the back of the fridge. Ideal as a hot breakfast but a leftover cold slice is wonderful for lunch too. When chilled, it holds it shape so well that it’s ideal for taking to a picnic as an alternate to sandwiches.

This recipe can be used with a multitude of filling combinations. Try bacon and cheese, broad bean and feta, or perhaps salmon and asparagus.

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2tbsp milk
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 100g cheddar cheese, grated

Method

  1. Take the broccoli and snap off tiny florets before popping them into a saucepan of boiling water. Cook for 5mins.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together the eggs, adding the milk, 50g of the cheese and season.
  3. In a deep frying pan, fry the pepper in the oil until softened. Drain the broccoli and add to the pan with the pepper. Pour over the egg mixture and cook for 3mins so that the bottom layer and sides begin to cook.
  4. Pop the frying pan under the grill to cook the top half of the frittata. This should take another 5mins. When it starts to look golden, remove and scatter the remaining 50g of cheese on top and return to under the grill to melt. Allow to cool before cutting into slices.
