Introduction

This is a great leftovers dish, and very simple.

Materials & Procedures

Materials

  1. Ceramic pot with a lid (a lid with a small airhole is best)
  2. 1 egg
  3. Whatever food you have lying around the house: potatoes, carrots, cheese, tomatoes, sausage, pork, zucchini, etc.

Procedures

  1. Fill the pot with small pieces of whatever tickles your fancy: potatoes, carrots, cheese, tomatoes, sausage, pork, zucchini, etc. It's good to have a mix of hard and soft items, like some veggies and some cheese.
  2. On the top, crack a raw egg over the filling.
  3. Then cover and put in a medium-to-high heat oven until all items are cooked, usually about half an hour to 45 minutes. Enjoy!
