They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s why I like to have breakfast all.day.long. It can be fast, filling, and it’s the kind of food we’ve been wanting after spending the morning feeding Norman.
The kids have always been early risers. Typically not my favorite thing but lately it’s been nice to know they’ll wake me up at 7:17 every morning so I can slip on my slobbered on farm pants and stumble upstairs to mix a huge bottle of calf formula. No later then 8:00 a.m. the car is loaded with our four kids, three pairs of muck boots, two calf bottles, and a partridge in a pear tree.
After spending about an hour on the farm we head home to get ready for the day. As a child one of the first things I learned to cook by myself was eggs in a basket or eggs in a hole. Not only is it a meal that brings back fond summer memories but it’s a great meal after working on the farm.
In this version I’ve kicked a traditional eggs in a basket up a notch by adding fresh parmesan cheese and letting it crust up before adding the egg. And I love a runny yolk so I always have a carton of Safest Choice Pasteurized Eggs in the fridge for just such an occasion. And, when it comes to flavor, they are the best eggs I’ve tasted. I may grow my own beef but chicken’s are another thing entirely. It’s nice to know I can get fresh in other ways and feel confident in what I’m eating and what I’m feeding my family.
