Sunday: The Damn I Know How To Make Excellent Eggs (Thanks, Dad) Post

photo-3The only reason I know how to make really good eggs is because of my father, who still makes the best eggs I’ve ever had on this planet.

My own eggs are different, naturally; my own personal adaptation. Today’s variation are a perfect example of when I made a gorgeous something out of virtually nothing. All I had was salami, eggs, fresh aurugula, pepper jack cheese and the end of a yellow onion. The winning strategy was in the process:ย 

First, I sauteed the onion slices. Once they were sweating a bit, I threw in the sliced genoa salami, so the fat could melt and everything could crisp up.

Basically, when the eggs were done, I slid them on top of a gorgeous plate of greens, sprouts, onions, salami, cheese … and it was all super melty and delicious. Which the heat from the cooked eggs only amplified.
