SupBreak Rancheros

My kids will always ask for 1 of 2 things for dinner if I leave it up to them - pizza and breakfast. They don't want bagels or cereal, or even pancakes - they want eggs. I usually whip them up some fried eggs and toast, then make a real meal for the adults. Last night, though, I decided to make something we could all enjoy. It wasn't quite breakfast, and it wasn't quite supper, so I shall call it SupBreak. Catchy, no? Either way, it was good and filling for all.

SupBreak Rancheros
(serves 4)

4 large tortillas
4 eggs
2 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 package of hamburg (real if you eat it, fake if you don't)
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 C water
2 t chili powder
1 t salt
2 T butter
1 T olive oil
sour cream & salsa

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place tortillas on cookie sheets. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat then add onions and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes then add hamburg, chili powder, salt and pepper and stir thoroughly. Add water and cover for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet heat 1 T butter and fry two eggs - DO NOT FLIP, just cook one side. Remove from pan, add remaining 1 T butter and fry the other two eggs. Now to put it all together -

1) put down 1/4 of the meat mixture on the center of the tortilla;
2) put a 1/4 of the tomato mixture over it;
3) then put 1/2 C cheese sprinkled over the pile;
4) put egg on top and sprinkle with pepper;

Repeat these 4 steps then bake rancheros for 15 minutes in oven - just long enough for the tortilla to start to crisp. Serve with a dollop of sour cream & some salsa.
