Breakfast in Bed, which seems to be just perfect for everyone. Reading through some of the other group members' posts, breakfast appears to be the favorite meal of the day. While I wouldn't go quite that far (I mean honestly, I eat all day long, so why discriminate?) I do dig breakfast foods. Really dig them. As a kid we sometimes had breakfast for dinner (I remember thinking it was such an awesome surprise to get pancakes at night, but now I know it was more like my mom was tired and my dad was too much of a douche to cook) which I still love as much as Turk. Living in Germany, I really missed American-style-egg-and-bacon-with-a-side-of-potatoes-and-pancakes affairs, but I learned that I could survive on brotchen and cheese. That is as long as I could find Quark Tasche at the train station. It's one of the few (ok, the VERY few) foods I miss from Deutschland! Despite my adoration for huge calorie laden breakfasts, I'm really a simple gal (not to be confused with a "young gal living on a single income"). I make tons of eggs, so this recipe was a no brainer.
Baked Eggs with Everything but the Kitchen Sink
