The weather in the past few days have been pretty unstable, but last Sunday I had a lovely breakfast with Liz of delvious in her sunny apartment.
Although her food blog generally features unexpectedly delicious combinations of ingredients, for breakfast we went for a simple ensemble of baked eggs, country bread from Tartine, and a fruit salad with blood oranges and strawberries.
I had never baked eggs before, but these turned out so beautiful I’ll have to try them again. Here’s how Liz did it: she buttered the ramekins, cracked an egg per ramekin, and added a bit of milk. We got to decorate and season our own eggs with thyme, paprika, smoked cheddar, salt, and freshly ground pepper. They were then placed in a brownie pan with an inch of water, and baked at 375°F for about 20 minutes.
Tartine’s country bread was as others have said of it: it had a nice crunchy crust, and a flavorful center. This bread is usually quickly sold out, but Liz was lucky to get a half loaf the day she visited the bakery. If you have a sour dough starter and wants to give the recipe a try, check out the book Tartine Bread.
Oh, how these photos remind me of the good ‘ol sunny days!
