OPH Eggs Cordova
Ingredients – Eggs, ham (we like thinly sliced Black Forest Ham), hash brown potatoes, bacon, ranch dressing and Worcestershire sauce.
Spray muffin tins with pam. Line each with slices of ham. Place one egg in each tin. Cook at 350* until egg is cooked to your liking, around 10 – 12 minutes. As the ham and eggs are cooking, heat the ranch dressing adding a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce. If you add bacon to your ranch dressing, make sure that the bacon is finely chopped.
Plate your potatoes first, add the egg and ham and then drizzle with ranch dressing.
OPH Famous Almond French Toast
Freeze a loaf of French bread. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before you’re ready to begin preparation. Slice slightly defrosted French bread into 2″ slices. Cut pocket in center of each 2″ slice (cut 3/4 ways through the slice to make the pocket). Mix 6 oz softened cream cheese with 1/3 cup apricot and pineapple (or any preserve you like). Spread about 2 table spoons of cream cheese mixture into each pocket of the French bread slices.
Beat 6 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 tbls vanilla, 1 tbls cinnamon, 1/8 tsps nutmeg and a dash of salt until blended. Dip bread slices in egg mixture and place on greased 9 x 12 baking dish. Spoon any remaining egg mixture over the pieces in the baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove baking dish from refrigerator at least 45 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter (about a stick) in the microwave and spoon 1 tbls over top, flip sandwiches and do the same on the second side. Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes on one side until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve with your favorite sauce or syrup.
