While I thoroughly enjoy going out for breakfast/brunch with my love or friends, I very rarely enjoy what I eat. I typically find myself more interested in what I do to, and combine with eggs than what is available in restaurants. I die for a protein-y, cholesterol-y runny yolk, so my creations always involve eggs that are poached or over-easy. True to my British roots, my fave companions to sunny yolks are spinach, mushrooms, fried tomatoes and baked beans.
Oyster mushrooms are a new major fave for me. On the depicted occasion I broiled them with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper for 7-10 minutes, and then laid them over some baby spinach. I combined this ‘salad’ with bacon, a runny yolk and a seat in the sun on the deck off my bedroom. Bliss.
