Lazy Ranch Eggs
I love Huevos rancheros, but today I did them my way aka, the lazy way.
I did not have tortillas OR salsa, but I had medium taco sauce! That works, right?!
3 pieces of bacon
shredded sharp cheddar
Medium taco sauce (or whichever heat you prefer)
2 pieces of bread
butter or margarine (for the toast)
I baked my bacon in the oven at 395 for about 13 minutes. It seems that different bacon calls for different cook times and temps. I’ve been playing around with it. I’m thinking next time it will be 385 for 15 minutes and see if that perfects my bacon. Regardless, cook it to your liking using your preferred method.
While the bacon is cooking, grab your bread and throw it in the toaster, but don’t toast it just yet. We are just prepping.
Grab 2 eggs, cheese, and taco sauce out of the fridge.
Spray your skillet and heat that baby up over medium heat.
With about 5 minutes left on the bacon, throw your eggs into the skillet.
We will cook them over easy. Flip them a bit early.
Toast your bread right after your first flip of the eggs
Then flip the eggs back over when ready and sprinkle some cheese on top. (Cover if you have one for your skillet to help the cheese melt)
Turn off the heat and let the cheese melt (just don’t over cook the eggs)
Now slide those eggs onto your plate and pour some of that taco sauce into the skillet. Careful, it might splatter – maybe I didn’t turn off the heat like I told you to do. =) All you want to do is heat it up (since it’s kept in the fridge after opening)
Grab a flexible spatula and pour the sauce over each egg
Butter your toast, throw the bacon on the plate and enjoy.
It’s def not the real thing, but it works if you don’t have all of the normal ingredients. Hope you enjoy!
I wasn’t planning on posting this recipe until I ate the thing and well, it was darn good. I’ll try making it again soon and post a pic. Take care! Ask questions if you want!
