Southwestern Sunrise

(no ingredient list)

Melt a teaspoon of unsalted butter in each 8 ounce ramekin in a 400 degree oven (I used salt equipped Smart Balance and omitted the salt in later steps). In the bottom of each ramekin put a half of a roasted red pepper and a quarter of an avocado, diced. Carefully crack an egg over the pepper and avocado, salt and pepper to taste,
and sprinkle about a tablespoon of grated cheese on top. The recipe I was working from recommends Monterey Jack, I used half Manchego and half Cheddar.

Put the ramekins back in the 400 degree oven and cook until the eggs are done to your liking. If you like a hard yolk they will take a while, I'll admit I cheated and popped them in the microwave for about a minute at the end because everything else was done and too runny egg yolks squick me out. Serve sprinkled with sour cream, chives, green onion, cilantro, guacamole, salsa, whatever strikes your fancy. We ate ours with spicy black beans, salsa, guacamole, corn tortillas, and a green salad.
