Ah, I can believe I neglected to write something about these delicious eggs. They are easy to throw together and the ingredient options are endless, I am thinking of sautéing some spinach with garlic and sausage next time instead of the ground beef. Make these and be happy!
- 1 lb ground beef
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 jalapeño, minced
- 1/2 small onion (white, yellow, red, or use 4 green onions), diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- 3/4 cup crumbled feta
- 8 eggs (2 eggs per ramekin)
- 6 tbsp heavy cream
- 4 ramekins, liberally buttered
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with salt and pepper and the tbsp of coconut oil. Use a spoon to break up the meat as it browns.
- Drain the meat and set it aside.
- In the same skillet, sauté the jalapeño, onion, and garlic for 5-7 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
- Stir the ground beef into the onion mixture, and sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes if you are using them.
- Place buttered ramekins on a cookie sheet.
- Scoop the ground beef evenly between the ramekins, filling them only half-full, and pressing down make them level.
- Distribute the crumbled feta between the ramekins, sprinkling it evenly across the meat mixture.
- Crack two eggs into each ramekin and drizzle each with 1 1/2 tbsp of heavy cream. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake the ramekins in the oven for 15 minutes, turning half-way through. If you want hard yolks, bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and dig in. Remember it is hot!
