I heard someone once say, “Each day is like a box you have no choice but to open.”
Someone has been stuffing my box full of eggs. They’re the only thing I want to eat right now. I don’t want them scrambled with a bit of butter or whisked into a bacon filled quiche. I don’t want them baked into a cake or folded into an omelet.
Right now, it’s all about the runny yolks. It’s about the plates that say, “Forget you’re a lady. Lick me clean.” This is the time for dishes which scream for a hunk of crusty bread. The ones which can be enjoyed on the kitchen floor with your back resting against a cabinet and your butt on a heating vent. Because there’s nothing quite like a toasty tush and a yolk filled belly. Especially when it’s raining.
This baked egg concoction, this little package of goodness, is a variation on a recipe I tore out of Cooking Light. It was titled, “A Pocket Full of Yum.” How can you not smile at that? A pocket full of yum. Get the recipe.
Restaurant Review: Black Bottle Postern
Leave the kids and bring your taste buds! Black Bottle Postern is an all-adult, whirlwind ride of flavor.
