Onion Ring Egg Fry

egg fry frying onion ring eggs try new way methodThis works really well -Slice a large onion in 1/2 inch wedges. Pick the largest outer rings of the onion and set aside the rest of the onion in a zip-lock bag to use for a later time. Put spray/oil/butter in pan and melt. Place the onion ring down in pan so that the widest part is facing up. Crack and drop egg into ring. Let cook until ready to flip (if that is your desired way to have your egg and then flip. If you want no runny egg once flipped poke the egg yolk and let cook and then flip again and cook to get desired egg type.

Pumpkin Seeds Health Benefit

Don’t throw away those pumpkin seeds – Save them! They are full of nutritional value and provide some great health benefits. Scoop them all out and separate them from pulp. Strain with warm water to process the rest of the pulp away from seeds. Spread in dry cookie sheet still wet and sprinkle with seasonings. Salt can be fine (or bake them with none which makes for a great salad topping or use on top of casseroles. Try popcorn seasonings like ranch and cheddar cheese or go simple with no sodium garlic powder and onion powder. Bake at 350 until the tops are getting slightly golden in color. Do your best to flip them all and toast on the other side until golden in color. If you would like a bit of “fried” taste spray lightly with a spray olive oil and then season before baking. Cool before placing into a storage container and don’t forget to eat some while they are hot. Has a great butty flavor that is good by itself or added to other food.

Canadian Bacon & Egg Cupcake

Use cupcake liners and place the Canadian bacon in the bottom to make a bowl. Drop egg on top and bake at 350 until egg is done. I have been told you can use regular pork or turkey bacon but have not tried it. Place several 1/2 pieces in one direction and then a few in the opposite direction to create your bowl. Serve with toast or for s special delight serve besides pancakes, waffles or french toast. Definitely an eye opener for breakfast… or anytime!
