Ranch-Style Eggs


4 eggs
1 cup of salsa
4 tortillas
1/2 cup of shredded Jack cheese
3 tablespoons of chopped scallions


Preheat oven to 325.

To prepare sunny-side up eggs, heat sprayed non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Carefully add each to skillet.  Add about 2 tablespoons of water.  Cover and cook until egg whites set and yolks are still moist. Remove eggs and keep warm.

Heat salsa in the skillet over medium-high heat until it boils.  Reduce heat to low.

Dip tortillas in sauce to soften and transfer to ovenproof plates.  Spoon one-fourth of the sauce onto each tortilla and top with egg, 2 tablespoons of cheese, and 1 teaspoon of onions.  Place in oven and cook until cheese melts.
