Roasted Corn Benedict

I was inspired by huevos rancheros…or at least the flavors of that dish. I didn’t really know what I was making when I started out–we had corn, peppers, and onions in the fridge…as well as some eggies… out came this tasty brunch:

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ears of corn
  • 1 green or bell pepper
  • 1/4 chilli pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 bagel thin or English muffins

Tools: Egg poachers (not necessary), a corn-decobber (not really sure what this doohicky is called, but it makes pulling corn off the cob easier (and safer) than using a knife.

The method

Start with the “sauce”: Strip the kernels off of the 2 ears of corn.  Chop the bell pepper and onion into tiny pieces.  Chop up the garlic cloves (I used pre-roasted/smoked garlic).  Heat up a skillet with a dollop of oil.  Add the onion and garlic and sautee until translucent.  Add in the bell pepper and cook for a few minutes. Add the tomato, chilli, and corn. Cover and cook for 5-10 mins with a little water).  Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Poach the eggs (boil water, add in a little vinegar. Stir with a spoon rapidly a few times). Drop the eggs into the poacher or into the water.  Cook for 2-3 minutes (I like the yolk a little gooey).

Toast off the english muffins/bagel thins while you are poaching the eggs.

To assemble: Place the egg on the muffin/bagel. Spoon the “sauce” around it so that you can see a little of the yolk.

Enjoy warm. with a little tea. or coffee.
