Baked Eggs in a Turkey Basket


Baked Eggs in a Turkey Basket I was going to start this recipe with one of a dozen or so awful egg puns I had thought up, instead I'll skip the fowl humour and get straight to business.

Do you enjoy hard boiled eggs? Does their perfect protein packed oval shape please you? Do you also like turkey? What about green things?

These little guys are a great portable snack or on-the-go breakfast option.

Meet your new best friend:

eggbasketWhat you need:

  • several slices (200-300 grams worth) roasted turkey
  • 6 eggs
  • leftover cooked veggies of your choice
  • muffin tin

What you do:

  • heat oven to 350°
  • lightly brush muffin tin with olive oil
  • place sliced turkey in muffin tin to form a turkey basket
  • add 1 tablespoon cooked veggies
  • crack egg in each turkey basket (don't worry if it seems to break through the turkey, they will harden in the oven
  • season with salt and pepper
  • bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your egg done-ness preference
  • ENJOY!


Big Batch Bison Chicken Sliders


Big Batch Bison and Chicken Sliders Nothing makes me happier than large batch cooking. Exhausted and stressed at the end of the day? Feel your hunger transforming into hanger; that dreaded combination of low blood sugar and high emotion? Fear not, large batch cooking will save your life. Good quality, hormone and antibiotic free ground meats from your local butcher are an inexpensive and easy way to get your protein fill. Here is my favourite bison-chicken combination of late.

Prep time: 20 minutes. Cook time: 30 minutes.

Things you need:

-          3 lb ground meats best quality you can afford (I chose 2lb bison and 1lb chicken)

-          Package of mushrooms

-          Half a large red onion

-          Half a large bell pepper

-          1 tablespoon organic butter

-          Half a lime

-          Handful of spinach

-          Chipotle peppers in adobo

-          1 egg

Step 1)

First things first compile your ingredients and preheat the oven to 375 F. Next chop your bell pepper, mushrooms and onion.

Step 2)

Sauté onion, pepper and mushrooms over medium heat in butter until translucent. Add handful of spinach and squeeze lime juice into spinach. Cook until wilted. Set aside and let cool slightly.

Step 3)

Plonk your ground meats in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper (really important other wise your sliders will be bland.) Add cooked veggies and egg. Now it’s time to get your hands dirty.

Mix everything together until well combined. Form into patties or a loaf and bake until golden brown.

And enjoy!
