First off, a disclaimer: Much as I detest smoking, I would allow Jon Hamm into my kitchen, whether he was frying up an egg or not. And, in case you were wondering, this is not the kitchen where Pink Slip Jam is made. Now that that's clearly stated, let me just say that with Spring here, my chickens & ducks are laying eggs again & it's a glorious thing! I love eggs fried and placed on a bed of wilted greens (usually left overs from a salad the night before). I love scrambled eggs with nettles, poached eggs with arugula, baked eggs with chives, and asparagus spears served with prosciutto & eggs. In other words, I am a big fan and consider this meal to be just perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. On Sunday evening I was so excited to watch the Season 5 premiere of Mad Men, that I made a salad & ate it with a fried egg then scooted out the door to the Hollywood Theater here in Portland to watch Don Draper on the big screen. I seriously doubt that Don would spend any time messing with nettles. It occurs to me that if Mr. Draper ate his 'greens', it most likely would be in the form of a cocktail olive. Still, in my dreams I can imagine sitting in a spotlessly clean & elegant breakfast nook, happily consuming the following sandwich with Mr. Hamm. A girl can dream.
Crunchy rolls Bacon or pancetta Fried eggs Frisee mixed with some olive oil & balsamic vinegar salt & pepper
If you want to gild the lilly, go ahead, add some cheese... Don't be guilty. Enjoy!
