over easy



When I was about middle school age, I would spend the night with a friend, Kathy. Kathy's mom was Rena Mae and she would cook us breakfast before school, fried eggs and bacon and toast to sop up the runny eggs with. I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

My mom was apparently not a morning person, I seldom saw her before school, my dad would get me up and take Mom her coffee and after a couple of cups of coffee and a cigarette she might make it out of bed, ahhh those wonderful childhood memories, but anyway…

The other day when looking for something for breakfast I looked at the same old cold cereal and thought about those delicious breakfasts that Rena Mae made for me. So I fried me up an egg (without the runny yolk - my old age self has issues with uncooked poultry products) and some buttery toast, mmm…

I felt like Maggie Carpenter in Runaway Bride, and I decided like my eggs over easy thank you very much! How do you like your eggs?


Remember: Don't put all your eggs in one basket!

Since you asked - scrambled hard with ketchup - the way my mom made them...
Or as an omelet - the way my dad made them
If I am at IHOP, the one with spinach & hollandaise sauce will work just fine...

Thanks for the craving...

And what's even better is placing those runny eggs between 2 pieces of buttery toast for a sandwich. Much easier to eat while working. Yumm!

Fried egg & bacon sandwich on toasted bread. And don't forget to put syrup in the midst to moisten things up! mmmm..... waffle house for lunch anyone?
