E is for Eggs

I love eggs!  I could eat eggs for three meals a day.  In fact, I have actually done that a few times in my life.  I especially love boiled eggs.  They are like the perfect food.  You can eat a boiled egg with nothing on it or a little salt.  You can open it up, scoop out the yolk, mash the yolk with a little mayo and some pickle relish, return the mixture to its egg white holder and you've got scrumptious deviled eggs.  You can slice or chop that boiled egg and put it over a lettuce salad or you can mash it all up and make egg salad for a sandwich.

I also love fried eggs.  Now everybody has a different idea about what constitutes the best breakfast egg.  I want mine fried crispy on the outside, but not too hard that the yellow cooks.  I want to be able to sop up the runny yellow inside with my toast.  And breakfast anytime sounds like a great meal plan to me!

I recently had a wilted romaine salad with a soft boiled egg, bacon and Parmesan dressing that was out of this world.  Here's my attempt to recreate it:

My Wilted Romaine Salad
1 head of romaine lettuce, washed with end cut off
1-2 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
Drippings reserved from cooked bacon
1-2 soft boiled eggs, chopped
2 TBS of mayonnaise
1 TBS of Parmesan

After cooking the bacon, use just enough drippings to coat a frying pan and place the head of romaine in the pan, cooking both side for 1-2 minutes each.  Mix the mayo and Parmesan to taste (little more or less of either ingredient).  Assemble your salad:  wilted romaine topped with chopped bacon and egg and dolloped with dressing.

I sure do love to eat!

Yum! eggs . . . don't you dare press those deviled eggs into the whites-shells => always keep 'em light & fluffy!
