I'm guessing we all do it. We see a post about something that looks wicked good.And think "Zomg. I'm making that right now, as I'm reading about it, somehow." Sometimes you even leave a comment to that effect. Then you go to the next blog and think "I can't possibly live another moment without that! Where do I sign up to get it hooked directly to my bloodstream?" And so on. You get so many recipes that you can't possibly make them all with any kind of rapidity. Sometimes though, it just has to happen and you make the dish as soon as you can. That's what happened to me with this post by Jenn over at Bread + Butter. I made it the next morning within minutes of getting up. I mean, c'mon. How can you resist?
I made it pretty much the same as she did, with only a few tweeks. First I cooked about a quarter of a box of pasta. Then I heated up a skillet with some bacon grease (it was breakfast, after all) and poured it in. I let it sit for a bit to get some browned bits and then I added the egg mixture. This was two eggs, milk, fresh basil, fresh parsley, salt and pepper. Stirred it around till the egg was all cooked and there it is. Oh, except the cheese. I forgot to take pictures of that. I added some extra sharp cheddar, I love sharp cheddar with eggs. But it's in there, I assure you. So. Was it fantastic? Why yes it was, thanks for asking. I would eat it again like this with a smile on my face. But. Next time I'm going to change a couple things. I think I'm going to cook them over a lower heat to see if the egg coats the pasta more. And add more cheese. Maybe some garlic, but maybe not. It might not work as well with it as without.
