This morning I woke up with egg in my head. They’ve actually been on my mind for the past few weekends.
Last Sunday, I made a bacon and egg pizza. My rolled out dough is getting better at being a little less amoeba-ish but still a far cry from being called a circle. Nonetheless, the breakfast pizza I made for dinner came out fairly decent. I think my next kitchen accessory purchase will and should be a pizza stone.
Today’s eggy endeavor preferably required meat, and the only readily ready meat I had on hand was a frozen lobster tail. Lobster eggs benedict it was. I had never made a hollandaise sauce before – always found it a bit daunting. Over-heat it and it becomes scrambled eggs. Under-heat it and your sauce will be forever runny. My finished sauce was a bit thicker than I would have liked, but I surprisingly poached a pretty good egg, the lobster tail meat wasn’t as dry and I thought it’d be, and the English muffin held up pretty good so I was happy with the end result. My cholesterol probably shot up after today’s meal, so I’ll have to start liking oatmeal again. Stat.
