Dishes with an Egg on Top: Trend of the Year?
While many people at the Sun laugh at me as I try to come up with new and exciting Top 10 Tuesday topics that aren't so arcane only four people will call up the list but don't totally compromise my principles (Top 10 Crab Cakes, the Winter Edition), Editor Amanda actually sent me six excellent topics.
Of course, four of the six we've already discussed here, but not this one: Things with Eggs on Top. ...
Last January Bon Appetit magazine declared a poached or fried egg on top of anything -- hash, polenta, pasta, pizza, salad -- "The Trend of the Year." Where do they come up with these things?
Oh, wait. Bon Appetit is published in California.
You would think by now if it's the Trend of the Year it would have made its way to Baltimore. And I have seen a pizza with an egg on top on some menu around here. I just can't remember where.
One thing's for sure. Even with your help I don't think I'll be able to come up with 10 dishes that have a poached or fried egg on top that are served in Maryland restaurants.
