Egg

Today = breakfast with old friends, good friends. Darien’s in town for the weekend, helping out with the apartment search (finding a 4-bdrm rental in the city is much harder than one would imagine o_O). Triggered by Adam’s recent post on Serious Eats, we fueled up for the morning at Egg in Williamsburg, nice and quiet on weekday mornings.

For Shann, the Eggs Rothko, an easy-cooked egg in brioche (from Amy’s Bread), topped with Grafton cheddar. On the side, broiled tomatoes and candied bacon. The candied bacon was too sweet, but man, the combination of Amy’s brioche, the most wonderful good of breakfast sins, with eggs and melted cheddar was surely something to smile about!

For Darien, Organic Grits and Eggs: stone-ground antebellum grits (Anson Mills in South Carolina). Sides of scrambled eggs and broccoli rabe. I took a spoonful of her grits and realized this was my first time tasting non-college cafeteria grits…god, have I been missing out. I won’t go into the eggs themselves, for Adam’s post provides a sufficiently delicious idea ^_^

And myself, Grafton Cheddar Omelet, a three-egg omelet served with broiled tomatoes and hash browns. The hash browns are fantastic, a golden hockey puck round, deep-fried with a crunching crisp exterior, crackling opened to reveal steaming, shredded potatoes, oh soo buttery.

Pictures don’t do this breakfast, nor do they acknowledge the wonderfully gracious and efficient service we received. Definitely one of the nicest and well priced breakfasts I’ve had in a long, long time.

    Hi there. I just thought that I’d drop by and say hi. I’ve been a fan of your blog for a while and finally mustered some energy to start my own, and I’ve added you on my list of links (don’t feel compelled to do the same, I just wanted to let you know) over at http://cheryleats.blogspot.com/. And incidentally I just had an egg entry. :)

    Hi Kathy – You’re right about grits…I never knew how good grits really were until I worked in Georgia for a year.
