    Egg-stravaganza!

    Eggs: they’re pretty magical. They’re amazingly portable, wonderfully versatile, and my favorite emergency protein by a mile. Like me, Henry loves eggs, no matter how they’re prepared: scrambled, poached, soft-boiled, over-hard, you name it. (My pun-loving husband might even describe them as eggceptional, but that’s going a yolk too far.) Plus, eggs are quite possibly the most nutrient-dense super-food around.

    Yes, we’ve all heard about eggs and cholesterol. But as Liz Wolfe writes in Eat the Yolks, “[t]he notion that cholesterol causes heart disease has been abandoned by many physicians and scientists. Why? Because after decades of studies and spin, there’s still no hard evidence to prove the hypothesis.” In fact, lowering dietary or blood cholesterol hasn’t been shown to prevent cardiovascular disease at all.

    I love how the late, great Nora Ephron put it

    I have friends who eat egg-white omelettes. Every time I’m forced to watch them eat egg-white omelettes, I feel bad for them. In the first place, egg-white omelettes are tasteless. In the second place, the people who eat them think they are doing something virtuous when they are instead merely misinformed. Sometimes I try to explain that what they’re doing makes no sense, but they pay no attention to me because they have all been told to avoid dietary cholesterol by their doctors.

    According to yesterday’s New York Times, the doctors are not deliberately misinforming their patients; instead, they’re participants in something known as an informational cascade, which turns out to be a fabulous expression for something that everyone thinks must be true because so many reputable people say it is. In this case, of course, it’s not an informational cascade but a misinformational cascade, and as a result, way too many people I know have been brainwashed into thinking that whole-egg omelettes are bad for you.

    Seriously: most folks need not fret about limiting their egg intake. So listen to Liz: “Eat egg yolks with abandon—they are a health food. Why? Because the cholesterol in real food, like egg yolks, is not just a powerful antioxidant. It’s also packaged with other nutrients we need.”

    Yolks aren’t just chock full of awesomeness—they’re the tastiest part of the egg, too.

    On average, our family of four goes through about four dozen pastured eggs each week—and we never get bored with ‘em. Want to be an eggspert in eggceptional egg cookery? Here are a bunch of ways to keep your palate eggcited and eggstatic! (I promise to stop with the egg puns now.)

    Egg Baked Inside a Muffin

    http://cookingstoned.tv/recipe/egg-baked-inside-muffin/

    I admit it, I really love sticking an egg in something. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! But if you’ve seen my Avocado Fried Egg, Kale Baked Eggs or my Artichoke Baked Eggs, you know exactly what I am talking about. So an egg baked inside a muffin seems like the logical next step, yes? Oh, and it is… savory, cheesy and sweet yolk running everywhere. Yum!

    • Eggs, room temperature
    • Water and Ice
    • 1 Red Onion, small dice
    • 2 ½ Cups Flour
    • 2 Teaspoons Salt, divided

    Matambre Relleno

    fritesandfries:

    I had my first matambre, a South American dish meal roll, at Gunshow in Atlanta. Traditionally, it’s a flank steak with a bunch of vegetables and eggs rolled inside. What I particularly love about this dish is that beautiful surprise of colors on the inside once you cut into it. I also love the concept of hard boiled eggs in things — you know how it is.

    I had this insane idea of making a Mondrian version of matambre: using quick pickled parsnips dyed blue, perfectly cut carrots, bacon strips and spinach leaves for the lines…you get the idea. Unfortunately, the whole rolling and folding process for this dish is not that easy so I decided to keep things fairly simple I gave up my super ambitious plans and made it the most basic way possible.

    image

    I’m still trying to figure out if this attempt was a fail or not because it isn’t as tightly rolled as the other matambres you see on the internet.
