Rosemary Steak and Eggs

Steak and eggs, but not just any steak and eggs - steak drizzled with rosemary butter and eggs that are insanely cheesy!

We don't eat breakfast a lot but we do sometimes eat breakfast for dinner. I knew this recipe would be a hit with the husband because it's steak and basically anytime I make steak, he is a happy camper. For me, the most exciting part of this recipe was the rosemary butter! And yes, I'm aware my steak is well done. I'm still trying to get a handle on being able to consistently cook steak medium rare to medium for Nick - I usually take pictures of his plate when we have steak. I'm a worrywart and like my steak well done. The cheesy eggs were also fantastic. They were perfectly cooked as per the recipe instructions. All-in-all, steak and eggs are a wonderful dinner and would also make a wonderful breakfast if you're a morning person :)

What you need:
For the steak:
  • 2 steaks in desired cut
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, cut in half
For the rosemary butter:
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • Salt
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
For the eggs:
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. For the steaks: Place steak in a dish or zipper bag. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Sprinkle with liquid smoke and oil. Place rosemary underneath steak and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours, turning halfway through.
  2. For the rosemary butter: melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add salt, garlic, and rosemary and cook over low for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Discard rosemary.
  3. Grill the steaks to desired doneness and let rest on a plate for 10 minutes tented with foil.
  4. For the eggs: Meanwhile, whisk together eggs with a splash of water.
  5. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over low heat. Add eggs and cook for 5 to 6 minutes until almost done but still wet.
  6. Remove from heat and add half of the cheese. Salt and pepper to taste and stir until done.
  7. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  8. Slice steak and serve drizzled with rosemary butter and eggs on the side.
