Cracked Eggs and Prosciutto

Cracked Eggs and Prosciutto

Serves 2. This is a great breakfast, or dinner, that we’ve stumbled on. You can easily do this with prosciutto, ham, sausage… any favorite pork really. Haven’t tried it with chicken or beef but feel free to experiment yourself.

Ingredients:

Butter
4 Eggs
Prosciutto

Directions:

In a cast iron pan (or your favorite skillet for cooking eggs), heat up the butter and fry up the meat until cooked (or browned & crispy if already cooked). Distribute the meat throughout the pan evenly. Crack eggs over the top of the meat. (I pop the yolks because I hate runny eggs. If you’re a fan of runny or soft eggs feel free to leave the yolks intact.) Once the eggs have cooked half way through, use your spatula to “cut” the dish into 4 sections. Flip the sections to cook the other side. Once done, dish up and Enjoy!

Optional…

Melt brie (or other cheese) on top of the eggs during the second half of cooking. Toast an English muffin and make a breakfast sandwich out of your English muffin, eggs & prosciutto & brie. So much deliciousness!!

Rotini and Sausage

Ingredients:Famous Pasta Sauce

2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 lb Italian Sausage Links
1 lb Rotini Pasta
1 batch Famous Pasta Sauce
Parmesan Cheese, to taste

Instructions:

Start up a batch of my famous pasta sauce. While that is cooking, get your sausages in a pan with olive oil and cook, turning often, until they reach 170°. While the sausages are cooking and the pasta sauce is cooking, don’t forget to stir the sauce, go ahead and cook up your pasta. When the sausage is done, transfer to a cutting board and slice into roughly 1/2″ pieces. When the pasta is done, drain and set aside. When your pasta sauce is done, it’s time to dish up. On a plate layer the pasta, sausage and pasta sauce. Then top with however much Parmesan cheese you like.
