Sleepy Twisted Sister’s G-N-G Breakfast Ramekin

"Potatoes are nearly religious in Iceland. If I put the most extravagant “potato-less” meal ever created in front of Siggi … he scans it, frowns & says “Hmm. No potatoes, huh?” In addition, SusieQusie accuses me (rightly so) of sleeping comfortably while Siggi trots off to work … so I thot I'd "marry" these 2 concepts & devised his now favourite G-N-G (Grab, Nuke & Go) breakfast. (Time doesn't include time spent originally fixing the potatoes or hard-boiling the egg)"

directions

  • Lightly butter 2 ramekins using a pastry brush.
  • Put 2 ounces flavourful mashed potatoes or seasoned fried potatoes in the bottom of the ramekins. Layer hard-boiled egg you’ve sliced w/your handy-dandy egg slicer over the potatoes, putting half the egg in ea ramekin. Layer ea ramekin w/a ham slice. Top ea ramekin w/1 tbsp grated cheddar cheese & garnish w/chopped fresh chives.
  • Refrigerate till your DH is ready to G-N-G & train him to be ever so quiet as he nukes his breakfast & leaves for work!
  • NOTE: I thot the fresh chive garnish was a really nice "extra effort" touch. :-).

    Excellent use of leftovers and a tasty start to a new day. You can mix nearly any potato, meat, cheese and egg, and have a quick breakfast. You can make ahead and just add a fresh egg on that morning, too. Made for Football Pool 2013

    Terrific and easy breakfast! I used leftover Mashed Potatoes Supreme (recipe #325089) and bacon instead of ham. I liked the cheddar and I think swiss cheese would work well too. Simple, tasty, and filling - you can't beat that for a breakfast - thanks for sharing the recipe!

    What a great new dish to add to the breakfast rotation!! I made this using the fried potatoes and had to sub in bacon for the ham, as DH finished all the deli ham. I am not a fan of hard boiled eggs, so I also substituted scrambled eggs that I cooked just until almost done. Followed the rest of the recipe and served it with some watermelon for a wonderful breakfast!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats again!!!

    Yum! Yum! I prepared this just like it told me to and it was great, will definitely make it again. I used seasoned fried potatoes, that were leftover baked potatoes, worked great.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
