    FRONTIER EGGS
    by Ellen Wright and Meredith Brokaw from "Big Sky Cooking"

    On the morning of Ellen's first day at the ranch, I took her down to the hen house to gather eggs. This was a bit out of Ellen's realm; reaching under a laying hen to retrieve a warm, just-laid egg was a far cry from reaching into the supermarket dairy case. I collected eggs from the nests amid squawks and clucks, then we made our exit, thanking the girls on the way out. I often prepare this dish for breakfast. It was inspired by a Creole recipe, but this frontier version is a bit less fiery.

    Serves 6 to 8
    INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

    1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 small green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
    1 cup diced celery
    1 to 2 teaspoons chopped jalapeño chile
    4 cups crushed tomatoes (canned is fine)
    1 small bay leaf, crumbled
    1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    2 cups grated cheddar cheese
    8 large eggs

    PREPARATION

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, celery, and jalapeño; cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bay leaf; simmer until the tomatoes have cooked down and most of the water has evaporated, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the bread crumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Spread one half of the sauce on the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish or 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese on top. Ladle the rest of the tomato sauce over the cheese; top with the remaining 1 cup cheese. With the back of a spoon, make 8 depressions the size of an egg; crack an egg into each well.
    Bake until the whites of the eggs are set and the yolks are still runny, 15 to 25 minutes (be sure to check them after 15 minutes).
