Happy Friday, and happy World Egg Day! This special occasion only comes around once a year, so I wanted to take the time to relish eggs and their multifaceted splendor. The incredible edible can be shirred, coddled, emulsified, or poached; used raw or cooked all the way through; eaten for breakfast or dinner; and presented in a salty or sweet manner.
From dessert soufflés to savory Scotch eggs, I've yet to meet an egg dish I don't like. But if I had to pick a favorite egg specialty, I think it would have to be smoked salmon eggs benedict, which comes with both poached eggs as well as a luscious, egg-laden hollandaise sauce, so I get a double dose of my favorite ingredient. What's your preferred egg dish?
