4-minute brunch...

A gluten free 4-minute brunch? really, it is doable.
Now this is simple food. To its basics...only a few ingredients and fast to make. I am not sure what to call these, I created them the other morning when I had little will to make a complicated breakfast, and a lot of extra eggs in the fridge.
I like this because it takes the same amount of time to make it for one as it does for 10. It is an excellent brunch dish (or casual Sunday afternoon dinner for that matter). Its so easy!

What you will need for four servings. Scale up to 10 or more if you want to.
  • 1/3 lb. gluten free deli smoked ham or turkey, cut into strips (Boar's Head is GF)
  • 4 extra large eggs
  • ¼ cup dill pickles, extra small dice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your broiler. Then, in an oven proof skillet, place it over medium heat on the stovetop. Layer on the bottom 1 tbs olive oil, then the turkey sor ham trips. Sprinkle over the pickles, then crack the four eggs on top whole.
Cook until the whites begin to cook on the bottom, about 1 minute.
Then transfer your skillet to the top rack of your oven under your broiler. Broil for 3 minutes, or until the whites cook over and the insides are still soft and runny.
If you like a solid yolked egg, keep it under longer, but watch it so it doesn’t burn.

When it comes out, a big scoop; including the egg, meat, and pickle goes onto a crusty piece of toast (GF store bought).I drizzle a hot sauce, like a Tobasco (mmm), but it is optional.
If making for a crowd, make this in a large skillet that will hold about 10-12 eggs…and scale up the recipe.

For an entertaining menu, pair this with:
  • Orange juice spritzers
  • A fresh fruit salad
  • Some scones or muffins
And you have a fantastic brunch!
