... with the popularity of last months 'anything goes' link-up I thought i'd set a little bit of a theme for July... For many, eggs mean just one thing - breakfast. They have been a mainstay of the morning meal for hundreds of years and they can be served in such a multitude of ways that it seems fitting to single out the morning to celebrate eggs. Some would say there's nothing more basic than a fried egg but then other would suggest that there's even an art to frying - do you have it 'easy over' or 'sunny side up'. I like my eggs scrambled for breakfast. I like a nice buttery thickly folded scrambled egg with perhaps a slice of bacon or some salty mushrooms, served with a crunchy sourdough toast... but if i'm eating brunch I always go for an eggs benedict or eggs florentine served on a lightly toasted muffin a drenched in a thick hollandaise sauce... utter luxury but well worth it as that golden yolk glides through the warm creamy hollandaise and soaks into the bread... and usually my beard...
kale and avocado breakfast muffins
...but it doesn't have to be the plain egg-on-its-own that we're celebrating, any breakfast or brunch item is worth putting forward... the muffin is a wonderful breakfast cake, or perhaps a quiche for brunch, or how about baked eggs... or banana pancakes... oh joy, it's going to be utter heaven!
