I love breakfast! If I had the willpower to get my arse out of bed early every morning, I could so get creative in the kitchen. (Since I don't, my husband generally has to eat stuff from a can...stuff which I lovingly heat, of course.)

This morning though, I kind of wanted to make something a little more special...

Pseudo Eggs Benedict


Whole-wheat bread
Ham, finely sliced
Quick-melt cheese, grated
Ground pepper (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350F. (Approximation only. My oven isn't exactly a bastion of accuracy.)
2. Make a hole in the center of one slice of bread. Lightly butter and place on a baking sheet.
3. Break egg into hole.
4. Surround hole with sliced ham and grated cheese.
5. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes, or until eggs are done.
6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with ground pepper, if desired.

Pair with orange juice and end the meal with some fruit. A great way to start the day!
