A Few of My Favorite Things

Fresh bread, avocado, way too much garlic, and runny egg yolk. This might be my menu if I am ever in a last meal request situation. Hmmm, it would need a significant amount of bacon though. Let’s save that version for a special occasion. I can call this a “healthy recipe” right now, adding bacon would only confuse that.

More Garlic Butter Please!

The garlic butter is clearly the star of this recipe. I know the egg and avocado bring people in the door, but they stay for the garlic butter, trust me. When the egg yolk mingles with the butter on the plate it makes a kind of garlic hollandaise sauce that I would consume by the quart if I could.
