Here's one of my favorite company breakfasts to get you started off...
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup flour (AP)
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP butter
1 tart apple, peeled, cored, and sliced very thin.
Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
Beat the eggs well. Add milk, flour and salt and beat until mixture is smooth. Melt butter in oven-proof iron skillet until bubbly. Rotate pan to coat with butter. Pour egg batter into pan. Spread apple slices over top. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes. This will rise in souffle-like fashion. It's lovely. I've had guests pull out their cameras when it comes out of the oven! Serve dusted with powdered sugar...or for my family, cinnamon sugar. Totally yummy.

Curried Egg Salad Recipe
5 good quality eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder (your favorite)
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 big pinches of salt
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 medium apple, chopped
1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1 small bunch of chives, minced
- First off, you need to boil the eggs properly (the key to good egg salad!). Place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch or so. Bring to a gentle boil. Now turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for exactly seven minutes. Have a big bowl of ice water ready and when the eggs are done cooking and place them in the ice bath for three minutes or so - long enough to stop the cooking.
- While the eggs are boiling and cooling, combine the yogurt, curry powder and salt in a tiny bowl. Set aside.
- Crack and peel each egg, and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the curried yogurt, onions, apple, pecans, and chives. Now mash with a fork. Don't overdo it, you want the egg mixture to have some texture. If you need to add a bit more plain yogurt to moisten up the mixture a bit, go for it a bit at a time. taste and add more salt if needed. Enjoy as-is, or served wrapped in lettuce or between two slices of good, toasted bread.
