"My wife and I tried to breakfast together, but we had to stop or our marriage would have been wrecked." -Winston Churchill
I knew a month ago that I wanted to participate in the fourth edition of the End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza (kindly hosted by the meggnificent Jeanne of Cook Sister! ), but I wasn't sure that the style of eggs I normally eat would be eggxotic enough to keep company with the crowd of reggulars over there. We always tie on the diner feedbag on Sunday mornings around my house, but it just didn't seem eleggant enough to call to Jeanne's attention. I mean, we think scrambled eggs are deleggtable, but would the other EoMEoTEers think so, too?
Some might think this breakfast a bit eggstravagant, but not when you look at it as the kind of good old-fashioned gut-filler that silences any grumbles until dinner (at least). Organic pork sausages, home fries made from fingerlings and onions with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, scrambled eggs with cream and fresh thyme, and olive oil bread toasted and spread with butter. Add on some orange juice and a couple of cups of coffee, and you're set.
Fingers crossed, the deggxterous EoMEoTEers will find them just as begguiling as we do.
