I have something to share with you.
I love brunch. I get to have both breakfast and lunch but when it comes to designing the menu, I struggle a bit. See, I am a little(ok, A LOT) picky when it comes to eggs. I only eat them a certain way and 9 times out of 10 restaurants mess them up even when I place a very specific order. But I wanted to offer friends an egg option when I entertained at my home. So of course, I asked a few friends to share a recipe and all three friends shared the exact same recipe with me. With that kind of recommendation I knew this recipe would be good but also found it super easy!
