Dinner Tonight: Baked Eggs with Mushrooms

This can best be described as a leftover meal. I had some extra onion and mushroom from another dinner, so I cooked them up, tossed them in a ramekin along with an egg, and then placed it in the oven. I initially was worried I needed some kind of sauce to tie everything together, but that's really what the yolk is all about. It oozed over the pile of goodness, making the very simple meal taste far more luscious than it had any right to be.

This is also the first time I've ever had any luck with baking eggs. I'd always get rock-hard yolks while the whites wanted to swim around my plates. It wasn't until I procured some ramekins that I decided to give the technique another shot. And I'm very glad I did. This is a perfect quick meal.

It is also obviously just one of thousand different fillings that can be piled into a ramekin. And while I loved it, it's probably just an easy introduction. Anybody have other favorites?
