Which isn’t surprising since eggs are synonymous with Easter – candies are shaped like them, we fill little plastic ones with said egg shaped candy and we hide them for children to hunt… and happily pilfer a few when the kids are looking … right?
So I’m sure it’s no surprise that my recipe today features…. eggs!
But not just “any” eggs. A couple of weeks ago we had a little blogger get together and Kim from Rustic Garden Bistro brought each of us a cute little bag of gorgeous eggs from “her girls”. Looking at them I knew that I just had to come up with something special to make with them.
Honestly, aren’t they beautiful??
I was also thinking about what would be a great Easter morning dish. I wanted something that was a little different from the usual scramble or poach .. and I also wanted it to be easy. A few years ago I saw a dish that was like a shirred egg except that the whites were beaten and rose up like a souffle with the yolk perched in the center . I thought they were beautiful and scribbled down a description in my notebook. This was the perfect opportunity to try them and see what I thought.
It took a couple of tries to work out the finer points – and they were “eggxactly” (sorry, couldn’t resist!) what I was hoping for.
Looking for some ideas for things to go with these eggs? Here is a great Easter/ Spring Brunch Menu!!
Happy Spring Everyone!!!
