Shirred Eggs

One egg per ramekin or person
Havarti cheese, cubed
cubed ham or cooked bacon or cooked breakfast sausage
dash of Tony Chachere cajun seasoning
grated cheddar

Grease individual ramekins. Place meat in bottom of ramekin, add cubes of Havarti cheese. Crack egg into each ramekin. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Top with grated cheddar and a dab of butter. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Can also prepare in one casserole dish instead of individual ramekins.

We first discovered shirred eggs at a Bed & Breakfast in Jefferson, TX and they are an almost annual treat for Christmas breakfast.

Asian Cabbage Salad

1 head cabbage, shredded
1 (4 oz.) pkg. sunflower seeds
1 small pkg. sliced almonds
4 T sesame seeds
2 pkgs. Ramen noodles (any flavor, discard seasoning packets), broken

Keep cabbage separate from other ingredients until ready to serve. Add dressing, toss and serve immediately.

1/2 cup oil
3 T vinegar
3 T sugar
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Accent (optional)

I could eat buckets of this salad, seriously. You could add some roasted chicken to it to make more of a complete meal.
