This morning once everyone in the house had their hands on a steaming strong flat white coffee, the suggestions for breakfast came out.

  • Leftover homemade chili
  • Crêpes of some sort
  • Bacon and eggs. Poached eggs to be more specific. Hollandaise sauce wouldn’t be turned down.

When you have house guests, it is a rule of good hosting, that everyone gets what they order. But to make it more convenient on the kitchen staff, we teamed up to make everyone’s wish come true with one dish.

The crêpes were filled with re-heated chili, topped with a soft poached egg drenched in Hollandaise sauce. The concoction was accompanied with a spoonful of homemade guacamole and a dollop of sour cream. Then a good sprinkle of bacon and chopped fresh cilantro.

Maybe it was not a truly authentic huevos rancheros, but we liked our ‘teamy’ version!

Have you ever had kitchen ‘play’ turn into a truly fun dish?
