I'm opening my arms to all the wonderfulness this year is going to bring.
It's going to be phenomenal.
J and I were able to have a (super) quick get away to the beach for a champagne sunset. It was such a beautiful way to start 2015. I thought about my goals for this year and it was really exciting...
The sunset was unbelievable. Such a treat...
I feel so thankful to have J in my life and for this really fun, crazy, wonderful life we have together. He is always cheering for me to go for my dreams and I want the same for him...
I made something really yummy for our New Year's brunch that I wanted to share with you. :)
This recipe was made by a dear friend for our girlfriend's baby shower years ago. It was such a HIT and everyone asked for the recipe. It's now a tradition that I make it every New Year's Day.
Simply called "The Egg Dish"
Here are the ingredients. This recipe serves two people, so if you have a big group, you can easily double/triple/quadruple the recipe. I quadrupled it and made two pans :)
1/4 lb good thick bacon
1 tbspn unsalted butter
1 cup medium-diced Yukon Gold potato
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 tbspn minced jalapeno pepper
5 extra-large eggs
2 tblspns milk or cream (I used milk)
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 C chopped scallions
4 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, diced, plus grated for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the bacon crosswise in 1-inch pieces.
Cook the bacon in an 8-inch ovenproof saute pan over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally until browned.
Add the butter to the pan,
then add the potato and onion.
Add the jalapeno pepper and cook for 30 seconds. (NOTE: I did not add the jalapeno pepper because I thought it would be too spicy for my kiddos).
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together with a fork.
Stir in the scallions and diced cheddar.
When the potato is cooked, add the bacon to the pan.
NOTE: You made need to cook longer than 15 minutes. I ended up cooking for a total time of 24 minutes.
YUM! Everyone loved it and the kids kept going back for more (and more...)
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)
Happy New Year!
Happiness Is Running Life.
