Breakfast Ideas: Greek Egg Stacks, Paleo

We made another trip to Crate and Barrel yesterday.  Look what we found:

A Round Egg Ring
We had to try out this new cute gadget today.  I have the leftovers from the grilled leg of lamb we had last night so thought of a way to incorporate it in our egg dish.  The creation was Greek Egg Stacks.  The kids were crazy for this! 

Greek Egg Stacks

Dice about 1 cup lamb, 1/4 cup green bell pepper, 1/4 cup red bell pepper, 1/4 cup red onion.  Saute.

Diced vegetables and meat

Place in frying pan and saute.  There seems to be enough fat in the lamb so no need to spray or oil pan.

Saute just until vegetables are tender and meat is warm

Saute complete, remove from heat
In a separate frying pan heat about 1 teaspoon coconut oil.  Place egg ring in pan to heat.  In a small bowl, crack one egg and beat lightly.  Pour egg into warm egg ring and then sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of meat/veg mixture over egg in ring.  Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.  Allow to cook until egg begins to set.  With knife, go around edges of egg ring to loosen egg from edges.  Gently remove egg ring and turn egg stack over.  Cook for about one minute.

Egg with meat

Cook on medium-medium low heat

One egg stack finishing, new one started

Breakfast is served.  These little egg creations would be great topped with feta too.

Great little recipe idea that! I do have a couple of egg rings in a kitchen drawer (not like yours with a handle) and am going this a try.  ツ
