This is what I had for breakfast this morning. It's 2 fried eggs with a little bit of smoked Spanish paprika on 2 slices of Dave's Killer Bread (toasted).

Guy took the photos, but my camera has a "face recognition" feature. When he took the photos, the camera thought the fried eggs were eyes--it told him: "closed eyes detected." Ewww, kind of creepy.


  1. Why is no one commenting on my eggs??

  2. Okay, how did you get them to merge so perfectly? And so circularly?

  3. Glad you asked! :P

    Well, it was really just a happy accident, based on the fact that I used a very small teflon pan. The pan created a perfect circle.

    I guess you could get the same effect with one of those egg mold type things, I think they make something like that.

  4. So you want comments about your eggs, do you? I've been wrestling with the conviction that you posted that image just to get up in my grill (or very small teflon pan, as it were). Eggs--who needs 'em? I'm surprised that Guy (a fellow loather of eggs that are not carefully beaten so you can't tell the yolk from the--bleh--white) could make it through the photo session without throwing up! Maybe HE was the one with the closed eyes.

    That said, kudos for the dash of smoked paprika and elegant presentation of an otherwise wholly objectionable foodstuff.

  5. :D No, it's not too mean. I respect your intense anti-egg stance...but I must respectfully disagree. Those eggs look DELICIOUS to me.

  6. I'm in the middle ground here--I think fried eggs LOOK good, but I can't bring myself to eat them!
