    I typically am only cooking for one or two people and am looking for new ideas for preparing fast and easy egg dishes. I'm not a huge fan of scrambled eggs, kind of burned out of them at the moment. My favorite new way to make a quick meal is to bake an egg in a ramiken and toast an English muffin. Very yummy! So what are your favorite quick and easy ways to prepare one or two eggs? Thanks!

    My favorite is a hard fried egg sammich. chose your pork (ham, sausage, bacon) and cook. Use the grease to cook the eggs. Crack eggs into pan, season, then break the yolks. Wait until set enough to flip, then flip and sprinkle with cheese. Turn to low and cover until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked. Meanwhile, toast English muffin and spread with mayo and just a touch of mustard. Pork, eggs, cheese, muffin.....yum! That's my breakfast probably 5 days a week.

    That sounds great!

    My favorite is a green chile baked egg puff, with beaten eggs, flour and cheese poured over green chile (whole or diced).

    Both those ideas sound very good! @FridayYet so can you give me more details on how to make the baked egg puff? I'm not much of a cook... So the more details the better! :) thanks!!!

    Sure thing mountanbunny, I'll get you the recipe when I get home next Tuesday. :)

    It started with a recipe like this http://www.food.com/recipe/chile-egg-puff-80269. But I've adapted it for a smaller portion by using 4 eggs, a tablespoon of bisquick baking mix, a handful of whatever cheese I have in the fridge, and some good green chile. Depending on your ratio, it can be more quiche like or more soufflé like. But it's pretty forgiving and hard to mess up.

    Promise I'll talk you through it when I get home. :)

    Thanks!
    Hmm. Wonder if I could adapt this to my little ramikens? I don't have a baking dish and I cook in a small convection/toaster oven. Live in a tiny house and so appliances are all adapted to that!
