Brunch Must-Have of the Week: Cast Iron Baked Eggs

Two poached eggs, ham, leeks, shallots, Gruyere cheese, cream, and fines herbes with a side of Hotel Potatoes and toast.

Cast iron skillets serve as the ultimate presentation for comforting dishes. Think cookies, cornbread, queso fundido, or eggs.

At Cup Cafe in Hotel Congress, they serve some of the most iconic eggs in Tucson.

The Cast Iron Baked Eggs features a skillet filled with two poached eggs, ham, leeks, shallots, Gruyere cheese, cream, and fines herbes with a side of Hotel potatoes and toast.

Even though the dish combines several rich ingredients, it’s not overbearing. You’ll even find yourself sopping every allium-intense drop of sauce with the toast.

But you’ll still need a nap afterwards.

Cup Cafe is located in Hotel Congress at 311 E. Congress St. For more information, visit hotelcongress.com.
