It's that time of year again when the Hudson Valley celebrates Restaurant Week. From March 14 - 27, 2011, participating restaurants
will offer a 3-course lunch for $20 and a 3-course dinner for $28. This year is even better than last, as many more restaurants in our area are involved! A few of our favorites , The Canterbury Brook Inn
, Il' Cenacolo
, and Cena 2000
are participants. They are only a short drive from Cromwell Manor
Our coveted and secret (until now) recipe for Hudson Valley Baked Eggs
We are often asked by our guests if we have a Cromwell Manor cookbook. At this time we don't but we are happy to share recipes when asked for one. I thought we would share one of our signature dishes with you today. As we often serve breakfast to more than 20 people at a time, it's a good
thing when we find a delicious recipe that is simple to prepare for that many guests. Hudson Valley Baked Eggs is one of those dishes. The recipe listed here serves 8 but it can be prepared for smaller groups also.
16 oz. tub of cottage cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 stick melted butter
scant 1/4 cup self rising flour
8 slices tomato
sliced green onions for garnish
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Place all ingredients except melted butter and tomatoes in large mixing bowl.
Using whisk attachment, mix on medium speed for 1 minute.
Turn speed to low and slowly add butter until thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes.
Spray an 11" by 14" glass baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Pour egg mixture into baking dish, scraping sides of mixing bowl with a rubber spatula.
Place dish into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until eggs are set.
Add tomato slices to the top of egg dish, equally distanced apart (as placement of slices will distinguish how you'll cut the servings) and bake for another 5 minutes until eggs are fully cooked but not browned.
Take dish out of the oven, and let sit for a few minutes.
To serve, cut into 8 equal slices, topping each slice with green onions.
