The Perfect Bite


I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while, but finding a weekend morning to do it has been challenging. I finally made it a couple weeks ago, but then couldn't find the time or the motivation to edit the photos. In fact, last week I didn't even get one post up. Boo. It really has just been one thing after another this December and I'm hoping more than anything for a resolution this week, a decision. Trying to balance on a point is not fun.

Back to my little dish.....I really love any meal that I can eat in one pot. The ingredients on their own are fine, yummy even, but together, they create something so delicious that it can only be called the perfect bite. Here's how I made this most perfect of weekend breakfasts.

I started by cooking the sausage in a small saute pan. I used a pork belly sausage from local RVA sausage maker Sausage Craft. Go big or go home I say, and OMG it was fabulous! Then I added some mushrooms just as the sausage was finishing up. Misery loves company, right? I removed the sausage and then added about a 2/3 cup baked beans and 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, some chili powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and pepper. Then I let everything reduce in the leftover fat from the sausage.

Once everything cooked down I placed the sausage in a small baking dish and poured the filling in as well. I made a couple of little wells and cracked two eggs in for good measure. Baked on 350 for about 10ish minutes until the eggs set. I finished it off with a sprinkle of fresh thyme and toasted up some bread to go with it.

Hoping for more mornings like this one in my future where I can relax, drink coffee and make a yummy breakfast in my kitchen......
