From SELF October 2011

Let's have brunch. It's Sunday. This looks really good. Tell me what you think.


ingredients

1 slice (2 ounces) thick bacon
1 cup chopped onion
10 ounces frozen chopped collard greens, thawed and drained
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 can (15 ounces) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced tomato
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives (or parsley)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 small green chile, chopped (optional)
Vegetable oil cooking spray
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons 1 percent milk

preparation

In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; drain on paper towel; chop fine. Drain all but 1 teaspoon bacon drippings from skillet. Heat over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, 3 minutes. Add collards, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Stir in bacon; turn off heat. In a bowl, combine peas, bell pepper, tomato, chives, juice, vinegar, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and chile, if desired. Heat oven to 375°. Coat 4 gratin dishes with cooking spray. Divide collards evenly among gratins; make space in center of collards for eggs. Crack 1 egg and gently pour into 1 gratin; repeat with remaining eggs and gratins. Spoon 1 tablespoon milk over each egg. Bake, covered loosely with foil, until egg whites are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. Spoon pea salsa onto eggs; serve.
