Egg Tuesday – Spanish Egg bruschetta (“brew SKET a”)

November 2, 2010

I hope you had a Happy Halloween and this finds you heading into a great week! After all that candy it is time to get back to food that can fuel your mind and body! This is a quick, simple recipe that has no limit on the variations you can do. I always keep a handful of hard-cooked eggs in the refrigerator, which makes recipes like this very quick. Hard-cook eggs on Sunday and that way you always have a grab-and-go option all weekThis is a great breakfast but would also work well cut into pieces and served instead of deviled eggs. Check out the video.

Yield: 2

Prep time: 3 min (assuming you have hard-cooked eggs in fridge)

2 Large hard-cooked eggs

1 Tb olive oil

1 tsp smoked paprika (or regular)

1 tsp sherry vinegar

1 Tb fresh chopped parsley (or dried thyme)

2 slices bread, toasted or grilled in a grill press. (Preferably a rustic loaf)

Zest of half a lemon or 1 tsp lemon juice) optional.

Peel the eggs and place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Smash together with a fork creating very small pieces of egg. Once mixture is evenly combined spoon onto the toasted bread. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley if desired. Enjoy!

Feed the hungry by making a pledge (no cost) to eat good. Do good every day.  America’s egg farmers are donating up to one million eggs to feed the hungry.

Eat well, Enjoy life, Be happy!

      Great with a fried egg as well! the yolk’s “sauce” absorbs into the bread. You can put a little wilted argula or spinach, shaved Parmesan and some lemon. Enjoy!!!

    Love the idea storing a few hard eggs in fridge. It has definitely saved me some time in the morning when I’m getting ready to head to work. Thanks!

      Tell Lucca it is great! Have her do her own creation using the same idea and it will be even better! Take care, J

    It was wonderful meeting you and your wife last night. One of the things that Ashlee and I loved about you during the Next Food Network Star was the fact that you were so real. We really felt that last night during our dinner. You and your family are wonderful and I know will be blessed during your time as you move forward. I hope we can get together when you come to Knoxville.
