Make your Tuesday even merrier with this fun little salad. It’s basically a ramped up Caesar with the addition of some sliced avocado and a dreamy poached egg to top it all.

To make poached eggs in a jiffy, try this oven baked method. It’s a great way to make a whole bunch at once.

Oven Poached Eggs

Ingredients:

Hot water
Large eggs

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Grease a well of a muffin tin pan for each egg.

2. Pour about 2 tablespoons of boiling water into each well. Crack an egg into each well and pour about 2 more tablespoons of water on top of each egg.

3. Bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes. (The water on top of the egg will make it a bit difficult to see when the egg is cooked, but 10 minutes was about right for me to get a set white with a runny yolk.)

4. Use 2 soup spoons to carefully release eggs from pan.

Make my day.

It was the name that caught my eye first. Flint Eastwood.

I expected some hot take on alt-country since the band describes themselves as “A spaghetti-western cooked in the ovens of Detroit.” It’s hot alright. Cowboy boots stomping around to some heavy duty dance beats. Fun.

Check out Flint Eastwood on the band’s Website, where you can learn of upcoming shows in Michigan and link to buy their music.

Cheers!
