Pizza Egg Skillet

When I get cravings for pizza - there is absolutely no stopping me until that craving is satisfied. I rarely crave the crust portion of pizza (frankly, there really isn't any good gluten-free pizza crust out there) but melted cheese, tomatoey goodness, and spicy meats? GIVE ME.

I've been craving pizza for weeeeks now and nothing seems to satisfy the craving. So last night, I went out with the specific purpose of buying pizza components - cheese, pepperoni, sauce, etc. I had planned on maybe experimenting with some pizza dough recipes and making this glorious homemade pizza...but then foam rolling and relaxing with a glass of wine sounded much more appealing. This morning however, I decided that I REALLY wanted pizza and concocted what is surely my new favorite breakfast.

Meet the pizza egg skillet. All the components of pizza - minus the crust - in a fast and easy egg dish that is equally good for breakfast and dinner. I've made similar "baked egg" dishes before but this is one of the easiest and can even be made pre-caffeine. I've included instructions for baking the dish without cheese and with cheese - just a note though, getting the timing right for melted cheese + runny egg yolks is an art. Which just means you have to practice...and eat more pizza egg skillets. Damn.

Bacon & Egg Breakfast Cups

So this is one of those "a recipe that isn't a recipe" things. This is more of a suggestion/telling you that  you should probably make these. Not only are they delicious, they're portable, and the flavor combinations are endless (well, not endless, but there's a lot of them). Plus, they're a great breakfast solution for when you don't want to stand over a stove making bacon and eggs, not that I have any experience with that or anything. Anyways, breakfast!

Step 1: BACON

I cut my bacon into 2 pieces (not equal, I cut about 1/3 off) and place one piece on the bottom of your ramekin (or muffin tin). Arrange the longer second piece around the edges of the ramekin/tin.

 

Step 2: EGGS

Simply crack an egg into each ramekin or tin. If you prefer scrambled eggs, go ahead and scramble them then pour the egg mix into each tin (fill about 2/3 way full). Season with salt and pepper.

At this point, you can also add some veggies, cheese, or anything else you'd like. If you use veggies like spinach, mushrooms, or anything with a high water content, saute them first, try to press out as much water as possible, then add to mix.

 

Step 3: BAKE, TOP, EAT

Bake in a 400F oven for about 15-20 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then remove them from baking vessel. Top with whatever your heart desires.

 

See? Easy.
