SLUMBERING VOLCANOES






Recently I was reading a novel and it mentioned some interesting recipe titles. I decided to see if they were real recipes or contrived and was pleasantly surprised to find they were real. So over the next few Sundays we can experiment together. My additions to each recipe are in green and the deletions in red.
4 large tomatoes
4 artichoke hearts
2 large button mushrooms, chopped small
4 eggs
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
4 slices Gruyere’ cheese (tonight I used a jack cheddar combo)
4 tablespoons fresh breadcrumbs seasoned with:
1 teaspoon dill
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 green onions, minced
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Carefully scoop out insides of tomatoes and drain juices from the shells.
  • Place tomatoes, hole side up, in baking dish and put in oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl mix together Parmesan, breadcrumbs, dill, garlic, and onion.
  • Remove tomato shells from oven.
  • Into the center of each put one whole or 1/2 artichoke heart.
  • Break one large egg over each artichoke heart and then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and seasoned breadcrumb mix.
  • Place “volcanoes” back into oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. (Time depends on how you prefer eggs cooked… if you want hard yolks, bake for 1/2 hour.)
  • Top with cheese and cook 5 minutes more.
  • Serve hot with side condiments of sour cream, chopped chives, green chili salsa, or others of your imagination!

Next time I’m going to add some crab to the mix!

And have you heard about CSN stores?

I was recently made aware that there is a wonderful online shopping experience available right from your desk top.

Remember all these wish list posts I did about all the wonderful quality kitchen dreams and wishes I have? Well, all the items I’m dreaming about to complete my dream kitchen are available from these sites.

Seriously, you really need to go check out these sites

Look for my review of this beautiful multi-purpose LeCruset casserole in the very near future. I truly wonder how I ever got along without it!

I’m envisioning an awesome POT ROAST & ROASTED VEGGIES in the very near future as well as TROPICAL GLAZED PORK TENDERLOIN and OATNUT SOURDOUGH HERB DRESSING and TURKEY TETTRAZINI and RITZY CARROT & BROCCOLI CASSEROLE and…

The uses are going to be endless. The durable finish resists chipping, scratching and staining. It has sure grip handles for easy handling from the oven onto the table to create a beautiful table presentation.

  1. These sound and look excellent! Nothing scary about these volcanoes except that they are scary good! I love recipes like this that are open to all kinds of substitutions.

  2. Yummy! Looks like a great recipe. This CSN store has really been generous in our little blog circle lately! Looking forward to your new gift and review 🙂

  3. That looks rather interesting. I was a little weirded out by the raw egg in the tomato, but the finished product actually looks good.We love our La Cruset dutch oven. Expensive, but very worth it!
