Rise 'n Shine

Even though baked eggs are quite easy to make, there's something about them that makes them seem like special fare. Maybe it's the fact that they are served in individual miniature baking dishes. Or maybe it's the fact that they can be dressed to your individual liking. I guess it boils down to the fact that they are the perfect breakfast fare for individuals!

I especially like making them when I know I'll have the paper to myself and I can browse through it while they're in the oven and as I nibble on my perfectly-baked egg -- often accompanied by a toasted English muffin with orange marmalade and a hot cup of herbal tea. I'd have to say that it's my favorite way to have a breakfast just for me. I'd also have to say that it's a great way to surprise Mom on Mother's Day morning! (hint-hint)
