What you'll need:
1 cup Half and Half Cream (or Milk or Table Cream)
3 Eggs, beaten
3/4 cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
4 pieces of cooked Bacon, crumbled
2 Green Onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
Pinch of Cayenne
°F. Grease 4 ramekins with butter or oil. I tried to divide it up into a variety of small ramekins so that we could try some different ideas with them, but next time I'll just use my larger 3/4 cup size ramekins.
In a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients.
Divide the mixture among the 4 ramekins. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until puffed up and slightly browned.
I stuck with a bacon, monterey jack, green onion version, but there are lots of variations that you do. Get creative with what you've got in the fridge!
- Swap the bacon for ham or prosciutto
- Switch up the Cheeses: cheddar, gruyere (swap the cayenne for nutmeg), swiss
- Make it vegetarian by replacing the meat with sauteed vegetables like mushrooms, peppers, asparagus heads, or small broccoli pieces.
