Huber Huevos Rancheros

This meal is our family's traditional Christmas Day breakfast. Christopher mans the comal after the Santa festivities, while we all fill our coffee mugs and wait for our plates.

1 cup organic, low-fat refried beans
8 small corn tortillas
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2 tablespoons canola oil
4 large eggs
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
sour cream, salsa and hot sauce to taste

Preheat broiler with 2 oven oven racks placed in the top third and bottom third of the oven. Spread a 1/4 cup of beans onto four tortillas, sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of cheese and top with another tortilla. Arrange on a cookie sheet and broil in the bottom third of the oven for 3-4 minutes, until just turning color and crisping. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes.

While tortillas are cooking, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Swirl the oil and crack the eggs into pan. Cook 2-3 minutes, until whites are just set. Season with salt and pepper.

Take the tortilla pan out and carefully transfer one egg to the top of each tortilla. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and broil in the top third of the oven for 1-2 minutes (watch carefully not to burn), until the cheese is bubbly and the egg white is completely set.

Transfer to plates and top with a dollop of sour cream and salsa.

You can bake these little bread pudding muffins a few days ahead; cool and refrigerate. Reheat them in a low oven while the turkey rests. You also can cook this in a 2-quart baking dish instead of a muffin pan, if you prefer.
