Egg in the Hole Pimiento Grilled Cheese with Lemony Celery Slaw

Egg in the Hole Pimiento Grilled Cheese with Lemony Celery Slaw

From Chef-Fromager Tia Keenan

A kicky sandwich that oozes Southern charm

This recipe is from Tia Keenan, a chef fromager, food industry consultant and cheese-industry pioneer based in New York City. Keenan has worked with celebrated resautrants Caselulla and The Modern as well as Murray’s Cheese and Bien Cuit Bakery. Her work has been praised in various media outlets, including Food & Wine, The New York Times, and The Cooking Channel. In Tia's words:

"Pimiento (or Pimento) Cheese may be the “caviar of the South,” but Midwest cheese church Zingerman’s nails this downhome delicacy: it’s a creamy, zippy bite, with a tickling heat that commands: Keep. Eating. Slathered on earthy pumpernickel bread, with cooling, crunchy celery slaw buttressing an oozing egg-in-the-hole, it’s a kicky sandwich that oozes charm."

Souffled Cheddar Egg Nest

This souffled egg cup was topped with a jalapeno creme fraiche.

I have said before that breakfast has always been my least favorite meal of the day. If I have to scramble eggs, I will turn them into migas (scrambled eggs with onion, jalapeno, tomato, cheese and at the end you throw in a handful of crunched up tortilla chips.). If my husband wants a fried egg I usually talk him into Toad In A Hole (bread with hole cut out, buttered, grilled and you drop a cracked egg in the hole and continue cooking). If I want a extra special boiled egg, I will make Scotch Eggs (peeled boiled egg, surround in pork sausage, brushed with egg and dipped in bread crumbs and fried). Well this egg dish is no ordinary egg either. It looks hard to make but very easy and will delight your weekend guests or do it just for your family.

I first saw this recipe at Sugarlaws blog and I think she got the idea from Eating-SF. Who ever made it first, thank you. I love this recipe. I have added a few extra things. For a garnish I did use some jalapeno lime cream fraiche that I had made the night before to go with some fish tacos. On some of the cups I added fried bacon to the bottom of the cups before adding the whites. I like the surprise at the bottom of the dish. I also sprinkled a little bacon on top of some when they came out of the oven. A side of toast would be great to dip in the egg yolks that are still runny when you take them out of the oven.

Separated yolks get put into water. I put into individual dishes, you can put them together if you are careful about taking them out of the water when ready to put on top of the souffle.

Beaten by hand. Ouch, did our arms get sore. Usually when I decide to whip egg whites by hand, I make sure there is someone else in the kitchen that I can pass the bowl to while my arm rest a bit. I like doing them from scratch occasionally since our foremothers did not have Kitchen Aid mixers to whip up their whites or creams.

Stiffly beaten and ready for cheese.

Fold in cheese of your choice.

Fill the cups with the beaten egg white cheese mixture. Top with one of the egg yolks.

Top with extra cheese and chives.

This one was topped with cheese, chives and bacon. Pancetta is great also.
