Eggs in the Garden

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I eat eggs alot. I live alone and most of the time cook just for myself.
So I try to come up with different flavorful dishes using eggs. I enjoy this dish with eggs still runny for a wonderful sauce for your greens. Feel free to use other greens or veggies.
Enjoy for breakfast,brunch or dinner!
