OK so it’s a bit of stretch to say this actually a recipe. It’s more of a little kitchen trick. What better way to get yourself some functional and edible egg rings and add some taste and interest to your breakfast? I made a batch of bubble and squeak this evening. I wanted a little something to go along with it. I steamed a little broccoli and decided to crack an egg. I pulled a slice of bell pepper and a slice of onion out of the fridge and used them as edible egg rings. A nice plate; the bell pepper mold makes a nifty presentation.
Looking for some other egg tricks? Try egg in half an avocado.
And on that note. You’ll notice I got a friendly comment from Vanessa below. She’s accusing me of theft and plagiarism. While that’s not true, as I tried to point out in an email conversation, she’s a person that’s not to be reasoned with. Our email conversation didn’t get much beyond some misplaced passive aggressive stuff before I realized I was wasting keyboard time.
I’m not sure what her affiliation is with Apron Strings Blog – I have to assume there’s some given the vitriol and anger that’s present in here. No one gets that angry without having a horse in the race. I’ll just say that we credit where credit is due. On that note here is the link to the blog she thinks I’m stealing from…
Apron Strings. That was posted a bit before mine, not very long to be sure. But let’s parse that out a bit further. Here are the same recipe, on different sites, posted much before Apron Strings got around to it. There’s not a mention of any of these on that blog, but I haven’t cried foul nor do I think there’s anything fishy going on. My mother used to do this for me while I was growing up. I don’t think she invented it. We’re a pretty lighthearted bunch around here but for the sake of argument here’s a few links to the same recipe posted earlier than either of us. This took 30 seconds on Google by the way.
Vanessa went on to let me know that I also ripped off the avocado egg slice recipe from Apron Strings Blog as well. Except that I credited the Reddit user that I got the idea from right in the post. A Reddit user who posted his “idea” only a day or two before I got around to making it. Did he rip her off? Maybe. I read Reddit, I don’t read Apron Strings. I think it’s a worthwhile blog so I may pop over from time to time. Reading doesn’t take very long. Clearly, sending nasty messages takes even less.
