It's been a while since I've posted and with good reason. I was in Cuba!!! It was great to get away for the March break, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sun and sand. What wasn't great was....the food. It's true when they say that people don't vacation in Cuba for the food. The beaches are the most beautiful I've ever seen, and the people are super awesome. But the food is....well...whatever. Let's just say thank goodness for the eggs. (And chickpeas)
In honor of eggs, I've got a quick and filling breakfast idea for you today. The whole thing takes less than 10 minutes to come together. It's filling, it's healthy, and it's damn tasty. Check it out by clicking the title of this post or the "read more" link.
They are super nutritious too! Especially if you get them farm fresh, from pasture-raised, free range chickens who are hormone-free and feed on grass. Lucky for me, my parents have such chickens on their farm and I get all of my eggs from them. I may have posted a while back about the difference between farm fresh eggs, and conventional store-bought ones. There really is no comparison. If you've never had the chance to compare the two, I highly recommend you doing so.
For now, I want to give you this recipe. I've got it listed as a breakfast idea, but it really could work for lunch and dinner as well.
I just love the pairing of eggs and potatoes. I'm not sure why, but I do. Maybe it reminds me of going out for breakfast on Sunday mornings with friends. We usually get an egg dish with a side of home fries.
I've used baby red potatoes for this dish, but you can use any kind you like. I just like the baby potatoes because they're cute and easy to slice. I've added in zucchini and onions, which go really well with potatoes as well.
The best part of this dish is the runny yolks from the eggs, which I've chosen to cook over-easy. (You could also poach them, or keep them sunny-side up for the same effect). I just absolutely love the look (and taste) of a perfectly cooked egg yolk, with its gooey goodness running over the vegetables. It really gives this dish a gourmet feel, even though the whole thing took only 10 minutes to come together.
Try it yourself!
