We really love this time of year, and it seems like many of you do too: all 4 markets have been so busy!
Things slowing down a little means we all have a little more time to take photos and enjoy the beauty of our surroundings, so keep checking in to see how things look this time of year! Plus, we're documenting the raising of our new greenhouse, soon to be ready to plant into (just imagine all of those delicious greens in the dark days of winter)!
This Gordon Ramsey video about perfect scrambled eggs is incredible! He creates the perfect breakfast to impress - creamy scrambled eggs on sourdough bread with sauteed mushroom caps and cluster tomatoes. You can find (almost) all of the ingredients for this breakfast at our Saturday market.
- Free Range Eggs - Mountain Magic Tomato Clusters - Portabella, White, or Crimini Mushrooms - Delicious, crusty Sourdough bread - High quality olive oil - Chives
2 cups potato (any variety, sweet potatoes would be lovely),
shredded 1/4 cup onion, small dice
a few slices of your favorite cheese (optional)
salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Saute the onions for 1-2 minutes until sweated on medium heat. Add the potatoes and cook until ALMOST tender.
3. Arrange the potatoes on a greased cookie sheet into 2 basket or nest shapes. Crack one egg into each basket and place cheese over eggs.
4. Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes, being careful to cook eggs to your liking.
5. Serve and enjoy!
* This dish would be best served over a bed of cooked greens, such as kale, chard, or spinach, with some tomatoes, onion, garlic, mushrooms, okra, and summer savory.
Toad in the Hole!
1 slice of bread
butter or olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1. Spread butter or oil on your slice of bread and cut a large circle in the center of your bread. I prefer to use cookie cutters, heart shaped ones work look extra cute!
2. Place the bread on a warmed skillet over medium heat. Crack the egg into the hole and let sit on the skillet until the uncooked egg whites become white. Check the corners of the bread to determine whether the toast is "toasty" enough for you and use a spatula to flip the bread and eggs over.
3. Cook until the second side is toasted to your liking and voila! TOAD IN THE HOLE!
