Huevos Hyacinth

This basic recipe can be used as a launching pad for your own interpretations. Instead of sliced ham, use smoked turkey or salmon. Instead of goat cheese, use pepper jack, Mexican Cotija or even Boursin. I think I got this one from Pioneer Woman.

pinch tips: How to Remove a Yolk




make as many as you need...
butter for the ramekins
thinly sliced ham, turkey or any deli meat
tomato slices or picante sauce
large eggs
salt and black pepper to taste
crumbled or grated monterey jack, mexican cotija, goat cheese or other cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Butter individual ramekins and in each one, place a piece of thinly sliced ham. Top the ham with tomato slices, or if you’re feeling spicy, a couple of tablespoons of picante sauce instead.
Gently crack an egg over the top of each ramekin. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Top each ramekin with 1/4 cup grated cheese. Monterey jack works very nicely, but crumbly cheeses such as Cotija or goat cheese are good, too.
Broil for 2 to 4 minutes, removing when the yellow of the egg is still soft but not overly runny. If you have people in your house who are avers to runny yolks, just leave them under the broiler for an extra minute. Serve with fresh fruit and breakfast potatoes.
