We had baked eggs and mushrooms in ham cups, toast with real butter, orange juice, coffee.

The eggs are among my favorite breakfast recipes. A ramekin or custard cup or muffin cup are lined with black forest ham, then a mixture of sauteed (butter) mushrooms and shallots and tarragon, mixed with creme fraische, is placed into the ham cups. An egg or eggs, depending on the size of the container, tops the mixture. All is baked until the eggs are set. Sooooo good.

It's extremely difficult to get it here so I substituted sour cream, which worked beautifully.

The aroma coming from the oven is awesome. I love the smell of tarragon.

Katie, that sounds wonderful! I'm just sitting here with coffee waiting for everyone to be up and at 'em today. I think we're going to have pancakes for brunch. Ken and Kate have already had breakfast, so we'll wait for Madeleine to be up and have brunch. Mmmmm I think I'll get the bacon going too!

Money can't buy happiness, but money can buy bacon, and bacon makes us happy! :)
