Baked Eggs in Potato Cups

Baked Eggs in Potato Cups
Serve 2

This is a great way to use a leftover baked potato. If you don’t have any left, you can easily microwave a potato in about 5 minutes, while getting your morning coffee ready.

1 large potato
2 eggs
1 slice of cheese
salt and pepper as needed
Sriracha sauce (or your preference)

Preheat oven to 450F
Cut baked potato in half the long way.
Scoop out most of the potato, leaving less than a 1/4 inch of potato.

Season with salt and pepper (if needed).
Crack an egg into the potato cup. You may not have room for all of the white (depends on the size of the potato.
Place 1/2 slice of cheese over egg.
Bake for 8-12 minutes (8 will be very soft-cooked and 12 minutes will be fully hard cooked.)
Drizzle with Sriracha and let cool for a couple minutes.

    Cabbage, Lime and Jalapeno Slaw

    Cabbage, Lime and Jalapeno Slaw
    Approximately 10 portions, 1/2 cup each

    This recipe combines all the great food experiences. It has the creaminess of the sour cream, the tang of fresh lime juice and lime zest, and the heat of the jalapeno. And you can pump the heat up by using a habanero instead of jalapeno, or adding Sriracha for another layer of flavor. It is a perfect paring with seafood, especially a meaty fish like tuna, or with smoky BBQed pork ribs, or a battered and fried chicken. Such delicious foods, such a versatile side dish!

    ½ cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
    2 tablespoon mayo
    The juice of one lime
    The zest of one lime
    1 bag of pre-shredded cabbage (9-12 ounces by weight)
    1-2 fresh jalapeno, minced
    4-6 green onions, sliced, white and green parts
    Salt and pepper to taste

    1. Mix together first four ingredients
    2. Mix in the cabbage, onion and jalapenos
    3. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
    4. This is better if you make it one day in advance.
