Cook Sister is hosting another EoMEoT (End of month, eggs on toast) event and who could resist this Dr Seuss favorite.
So (without the poetry) here's my version of Green Eggs - NO ham.
My honey likes his scrambled eggs well done, but you can do yours any way you like. Just add a little milk and a dollop of pesto. Those who have visited my blog before, know I love basil and lately, given that huge bunches of basil can be found around here, just about every recipe I make seems to include it.
Between all the Childhood memories memes out there (myself included), IMBB End of Summer Frying event recently held by Linda of At Our Table and writing my cookbook (shameless plug) which, not only contains easy to follow recipes, but also shares short vignettes of my growing up (all food related, naturally), my mind naturally went to this dish as an all time favourite breakfast treat from my childhood.
Sunday was the only day of the week that we all ate breakfast together and the one dish we kids loved the most was Egg-in-a-hole. In those days, we didn't worry about cholesterol and so my mother used lots of butter. The bread would soak it up and get crispy in the pan. I'm not sure which part I loved most, the egg part or the separate piece that originally was the center of the bread slice. I can still taste the buttery crunchiness.
Today was the first time in a long, long time that I made it, since now cholesterol IS an issue for me. I used margarine instead of butter, but really who was I trying to kid?
When I 'googled" egg in a hole, 232 results popped up, so I know I'm not alone. I seem to remember that other cultures gave it a different name. What did you call it in your house?
