Breakfast For Dinner with Sauvignon Blanc

It’s hot. And we’re trying to eat healthy[1]. So what’s a girl to do for dinner? Enter summer fresh oeufs en cocotte[2]. It was Husband’s idea and he executed flawlessly.  File Jul 13, 11 20 14 AM

Summer Fresh Eggs En Cocotte Recipe

Grab two ramekins[3] and spray or wipe down with olive oil. Layer fresh veggies inside. We used baby spinach and diced green peppers. An onion would have been a great addition. Anything you have laying around or growing in your garden will work[4]. Crack two eggs on top of the veggies and cover with a sprinkling of diced fresh herbs and a pinch of sea salt. If you’re really feeling fancy, throw in a dash of fresh grated parmesan[5]. Put the ramekins in a shallow baking dish filled with water (you want the water to be about halfway up the ramekin). Cover in foil and bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Uncover and finish baking for another 5-10 minutes. Voilà! Dinner is served!

Talk about summer fresh. It felt like I was taking a bite out of the garden. And it paired perfectly with Judge Palmer’s 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. The Judge Palmer wines are really stunning[6]. Too often Sauvignon Blanc is thin and metallic, but not so with this vintage of Judge Palmer. Nutty, green grass on the nose. Thick and peachy with a hint of sweet on the finish. Absolutely gorgeous color; a rich golden hue. File Jul 13, 11 20 31 AM

What’s your secret to eating healthy in the heat?

Until the next glass, cheers!

[1] Day three of no bread and I’m still civil to my fellow humans; I’m pretty much a #healthnut. Also, Honey Nut Cheerios for breakfast is better than a cream cheese covered bagel…right? #onthego
[2] This translates to “egg casserole.” I think it sounds much more appetizing in French.
[3] You know you have some from the crème brûlée set you put on your wedding registry and used once, if ever. If not, grab a few next time you’re at Amazon.
[4] Zucchini, radishes, leeks, tomatoes etc. #greenthumb
[5] I suggested some ham, bacon and/or pancetta too, but, see footnote 1, infra, re: being healthy. Ugh.
[6] The Cabernet Sauvignon we had this winter was equally captivating. And I just love the backstory behind Judge Palmer – Palmer Emmitt’s electrician-turned-judge grandfather. #nolawschoolnecessary
