Garlic and egg?
Yes, garlic and egg.
You think I am crazy. Let’s not get ugly here, people – I much prefer the term “dangerous.” My palate and I live on the edge. Plus we had very few ingredients in the cupboard to work with last night.
But remember – the only thing crazier than my ideas is the deliciousness they create.
Begin with cheese. This is the secret to every great savory dish. Always begin with cheese.
Toast yourself some bread, preferably Whole Foods “seeduction bread.” So witty, those Whole Foods folk.
If you are feeling decadent, toast it in a pan with butter. As I nearly vomited during my spin class last night, I felt a little butter was necessary. Don’t want to go getting too thin, now. Then no one will believe that I can cook unless I change my name to Giada (bitch).
Once the bread is toasted, rub it with a clove of garlic. But don’t use the whole thing unless you are trying to ward off the Cullen clan, which I would never want to do.
Garlic bread, meet cheese.
Heat the broiler, and stick these little friends in for 3-4 minutes, until bubbly and browning.
Oh, lordy. What could possibly make this better?
Yep, that’ll work.
Stare at the cheesy bread for a while and admire its beauty. When you have sufficiently gawked, top with the fried egg.
Even though you’re bursting with joy and rainbows right now, try not to cry. It’s embarrassing for everyone.
Okay, now you can cry. It’s just too beautiful to hold back the tears.
