I love brunch. LOVE brunch. It’s my favorite meal. Take breakfast options, push ’em back into “normal hours” you’d prefer on a weekend, add in some menu options, perhaps a bread basket of items here and there on the house, maybe a little combo deal including in coffee/tea and a mimosa/bellini/or bloody mary, maybe even a little live jazz… How can you beat that?
The downside for me has always been eggs. Ick. I’ve never liked them. Always say the only way I like my eggs are combined with milk to make French toast or hidden deep within the interior of a cake of any variety. I’ve learned though that I’m really limiting my brunch potential here. I do like Tortilla Española and I’ve learned quiches are pretty darn tasty. And what’s the fun of being a restaurant critic if you aren’t up for a little adventure?
So this Sunday, I’m taking the egg plunge. Bring it on. I’m thinking an omelette is a good “starter” egg dish. Especially when considering all of the options out there.
I was curious for all of you out there… how do you like your eggs? And when it comes to omelettes, what are your favorite ingredients?
