Egg Talk

hey  :)

While feverishly anticipating for my happy breakfast assignment tomorrow, I hope to share a very simple recipe on EGGS BENEDICT from one of my favorite blogs, bluebird. My breakfast adventures have significantly expanded my egg-related vocab from the staple boiled egg, soft-boiled egg, sunny side up, scrambled egg to the sophisticated (ahem, you got that right, sophisticated talaga - haha!) scrambled egg with rosemary and thyme (herbs sophisticate the eggs, mind you), eggs benedict and then truffled eggs benedict. Eggs Benedict is my favorite among all the recipes simply because it brings me closer to Lucy Torres-like experiences. Lucy Torres is a second-termer in the Congress as the representative of the 4th district of Leyte and is the wife of Richard Gomez. What does she have to do with eggs benedict? It was from her Sunday column in the Philippine star I've first heard/read of Mr. Benedict, the egg. Now, before this post shoots out to a different direction, let's get down to business.

you will need:

some good bread, we used sour dough
grape seed oil
salt and pepper to taste

toss asparagus with grape seed oil on a baking sheet and then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. roast in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. we made scrambled eggs, but you can make them how you prefer. i think i will try a fried egg next time. toast your bread. we buttered ours because buttery toast is one of my favorite things, but you can leave yours dry if you prefer. layer toast, eggs, asparagus and then top with hollandaise sauce.

you can find the hollandaise recipe that we used here. it was so simple and delicious!

All Sunshiny,
