It’s a baby egg. The neighbors got chickens that lay teeny wee eggs and gave me some. I had tomatoes from the farmers market, so I made a marriage in heaven.
Ever had fried ripe tomatoes? I slice mine thick and fry them at a moderate heat in vegan margarine until they’re browned and softish.
On this day, I cooked two of those baby eggs in the same pan and plopped ’em on the top.
That isn’t grease; that’s tomato juice and a little melted margarine, but mostly tomato juice. Perfect for sopping up with a piece of bread.
As my grandpa would have said, “Messy but nourishin’.”
