Egg in the hole

This is another recipe that I have seen recently and wanted to try. I love eggs.. from my head down to my legs...which brings me to - Egg in the hole.
I saw a version of the egg in the hole used as the bread in a grilled cheese on 'A cozy kitchen' a wonderful blog with delicious and beautiful food. I am not sure I am ready to try the oozy cheezy yummy-ness that was the grilled cheese version but I took the egg in the hole part and made it for the first time. Delicious. Simple. Beautiful.

I also borrowed the Pioneer Woman book from a friend and there is a version in there as well also very simple. If you like eggs and want an easy breakfast or even dinner try it out.

Ingredients:
1 Egg
1 Piece of bread any kind (I used Texas toast style)
1 tablespoon butter (or spray)

Cut a hole in the bread with an inverted cup or cookie cutter. Make sure you have enough bread still left over to hold the egg.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium low.Place the bread and center that was cut out in the pan and leave for a minute or two.

Drop the egg in the hole (get it - egg in the hole) and season with salt and pepper.
Cook for a minute or two until the white is set on the bottom and the bottom of the bread is starting to toast and brown. Then, flip the bread with the egg carefully and cook on the other side until the egg is done to your liking and the bread is toasted and brown. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Flip the bread center piece too.
Use the middle cut out piece to dip in the center to get the oozy yolk of the egg. Enjoy

Queso with sausage

What goes better with a football watching party than some queso and chips? Not much in my opinion. This sausage queso is a 'Pioneer Woman' Recipe and it is a stepped up version of the normal 'Rotel' dip that many people make (Velveeta and Rotel). This is so good I am not sure I will ever make the 'normal' queso again. Thanks to the Pioneer Woman and my friend Beth for introducing me to this delicious recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 LB of Velveeta cheese-cubed
1 package 16 oz of pork sausage (you can use turkey if you want) such as Jimmy Dean
1 medium onion diced small
1 can Rotel (any level of spice you like)
1 can of diced green chilies
1-2 fresh jalapenos diced small and seeded if you are scared of the heat or leave it out

Its best to do this in a non stick skillet or big Dutch oven then keep it warm on the stove or transfer it to a crock pot for a party. I also took the suggestion of Pioneer woman and once it was slightly cool, put it in freezer zipper bags for freezing and eating later.

Brown the sausage and the chopped onion and cook thoroughly 
Then add in the cubed velveeta, rotel and green chiles with juice

stir and melt over medium ish heat stirring occasionally
Yummy....
Almost done...
 
Once it's pretty well melted add the diced jalepeno and stir...

Then taste!
Happy Football snacking!
