Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese

This is one of those lazy morning breakfast recipes, exactly what I need for the last three weeks of my holidays. I know three weeks sounds like a lot but when you compared it to the 4 months that my holidays last it is actually not a lot :) Sorry boasting about my student life is over now. Back to the food now, even better back to the breakfast food. This is for the lazy breakfast at 11 made with a cup of tea in hand and newspapers waiting on the table.

Deník Dity P. Cookbook

I have bought a cookbook, again. It is called Deník Dity P. which translates to Diary of Dita P. And I am obsessed with it, like with all of the ones before. I even took this one with me when I went away for the weekend. Not really to read as I have already looked through it so many times but to show everyone else what and amazing cookbook it is. So there I was showing boring all my friends with a cookbook, most of whom don’t really cook beyond pasta with jar of sauce. Yup that actually happened. The recipe is from the ‘Hangover Cure’ section but I honestly think it is good for any morning not only the alcohol-affected ones. Unfortunately the cookbook is in Czech so it isn’t really for everyone, but the pictures are so pretty it worth having look even just at those.

Ingredients: Cherry tomatoes, Cream, Eggs, Basil and Goat cheese

First roast the tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and black pepper.

Whip the egg whites with cream, basil and seasoning.

And now just assemble the cup, starting with a slice of goat cheese log and topping with cherry tomatoes and egg yolk. Sprinkle with some extra basil and bake.

Unbaked

Bake until your desired doneness and serve with a slice of crusty bread. Eat slowly with your favourite newspaper and a cup of tea/coffee.
