The Crazy Suburban Mom: A Bun in the Oven

A Bun in the Oven

So what did I eat last night for dinner after cooking all that meat?

If you think meat?

You're mistaken.

I'm necked out.

Somewhere between buying it all, and prepping it all, and cooking it all... And than having dig for neck bones I started to feel less and less hungry and more and more like I was on the TV show, CSI.

The thing about neck bones is, when all is said and done, meat looks like meat but the bones?

No matter what you do you can't pass off a vertebrae for a rib...

Maybe in the past but now with every TV show either being a CSI show or having a CSI component, people are too darn savvy about parts.

Frankly my foray into meat is getting to me (seriously). So last night I looked around for something else to eat and came up with..



I'm going to call it A Bun in the Oven....

It was delicious. And filling. Rather elegant looking and there wasn't a bone in the entire thing to deal with.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut a thin slice off the top of a round roll (I used an unsliced kaiser roll)

Scoop out most of the bread, leaving enough bread around the edges to it retains its Kaisery form.

Put the roll 'cups' in a baking dish and...

Place a slice of precooked Canadian Bacon in the bottom of the roll.

Carefully open an egg onto the bacon (You could use 2 egg whites). Sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Put a drop of light cream or milk on the egg.

Than shredded cheese (I used what I had, smoked Gouda) on the cream.

A few scallions on the cheese. A sprinkle of pepper and more salt if you wish.

Bake until egg is done to your liking. If you jiggle the pan you can see how done the eggs are. The more the eggs move in the rolls, the less hard cooked. 20 to 30 minutes will probably yield something like a soft boiled egg. I let mine go longer to get something closer to hard-boiled.


Loved it.

It's something that can be easily altered for tastes. You could change the cheese, use cooked sausage instead of Canadian Bacon, or leave off the meat entirely and use a slice of tomato. Or even use some soft scrambled eggs (Let them finish cooking inside the rolls)

It's is more of a knife and fork meal than Egg McMuffin (The longer you cook the roll the crisper they get). Actually it's an Egg McMuffin all growed up.
