🥚 PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 6 min (or duck eggs for 7 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.

🥘 BISON SHEPHERD’S PIE
I didn’t have any ground beef but I did get a package of ground bison on sale at Kroger and thought – that will work.

▪️Ground Bison
▪️Pacific Foods Beef Broth*
▪️Simple Truth Steak Sauce*
▪️Cornstarch
▪️Peas
▪️Carrots
▪️Corn
▪️Potatoes
▪️2% Milk
▪️Half n Half*
▪️Salted Butter
▪️Light Cream Cheese*
▪️Parsley Flakes
▪️Salt / Pepper / Garlic Powder

I cooked the potatoes in the Chef IQ Smart Cooker. I just quartered them and put them in the steamer basket. Super easy and you don’t even need to peel them first. The skin just slides right off afterwards. Mashed and added the milk, half n half, butter, cream cheese, garlic powder, parsley and salt/pepper.

Meanwhile cook the bison and veggies in the stock/cornstarch/steak sauce mix
Meat Layer
Potato Layer
375° for 30min

I had 1½ servings for dinner, put up 2 servings to freeze and am taking Sandy 2 servings. I originally made the salad to go with it but didn’t eat it… It will be tomorrow lunch…

I didnt use a particular recipe for this but here are a few you could try:
