The good news about fall beginning to fade to winter? The empty branches of the trees outside leave lots of room for extra sunshine.
And so, inspired by the gorgeous wintery light streaming in, and keeping with our mission to find a million ways to use our cute new snack sets, we brightened up our morning with these fluffy, cheese-filled eggs, baked right in our little bowls. Add a tangle of greens, lightly dressed, and you have a great way to kick off the day in under 30 minutes.
Souffle? Frittata? "Shirred"? They're all just fancy names for baked eggs. These are very versatile. Use your imagination and add your favorite veggies, herbs, or cheeses - you can get exotic or keep it simple. In their individual portions they're perfect for serving brunch or lunch, easily tailored to each guests' tastes, and we think they make gracious entertaining and social-distancing work together beautifully.
Cheese-Baked Eggs (Serves 2)
Add-in Ideas: oven-roasted tomatoes, cream cheese and smoked salmon, broccoli, bacon crumbles, sausage, chick peas and harissa, brie and avocado, onions, peppers, mushrooms, black beans and hot sauce, Zaatar spice blend with feta

These individual squash crumbles serve up an easy blend of savory tastes with the natural sweetness of carmelized squash and shallots, but the biggest reveal is in the crumble topping. Yes, there's butter, but the real magic ingredient is the cornmeal, giving this a crunch that holds up brilliantly, adding richness to the breadcrumbs and parmesan, and rounding out this savory treat.
We're thinking a new family favorite is born.
