Eggs are delicious. We love them in all forms. And while we don’t like to play favorites, this egg dish is one of the best things you’ll eat and (hopefully soon) serve your friends and family.
The recipe is deceivingly simple for how elegant it looks, which makes it the perfect main dish for a brunch gathering. Serve family style with a nice, crusty baguette and a pitcher of cocktails, like our Blush Sangria, which doubles as a fruit salad with the right attitude.
