Eggs In A Glass

:

This is  THE  breakfast classic of Viennese coffeehouses, where it has been served for many generations. Usually, it is being served in a stemmed champagne cup, which originally invited the immature nonsense of comparing its appearance with the male anatomy.
Although the two eggs with the long stem of the glass can invoke sexual imagery, it is the egg lover who loves this simple dish most, for the ease it provides to eat soft boiled eggs, without the trouble of peeling them or chopping the top off with a butter knife. 🙂
However, my love for this dish leads all the way back to my childhood, when my mother served the soft eggs in regular glasses for all the family, sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper,  a pinch of salt and a dollop of fresh butter, with some hearty farmers bread to soak up the yolk from the bottom of our glasses. To this day, nothing has dimmed my love for eggs in a glass, except that the 2 eggs my mom used to serve me have nowadays grown into five or six eggs. 🙂

Cheese-Coated Pork Chop With Garlic-Broccolini And Charred Peppers

>
>
Today’s  lunch proved once again that the old adage “simple is better” still holds the truth. (If done right) .
The clean, fresh taste of the broccolini, supported by the sweetness of the caramelized garlic and the light acidity of the pickled, charred peppers makes this a side dish well worth it’s praise. Combine with some grilled lemon and a sumptuous, parmesan-crusted pork chop and a simple, easy and quick to prepare lunch is elevated to wonderful, happy culinary bliss 🙂

Allgäuer Wurstsalat Mit Hörnchen

>
>
Hörnchen  means “Little Horns” in German. They are such a wonderful pastry when properly prepared. Unfortunately, to find good Hörnchen (Croissants, Media Luna’s) is increasingly difficult and in some areas downright impossible.
A good hörnchen is as light as a feather, with dozens of air-seperated layers of buttery pastry. Most of the stuff you can buy these days are mass-produced, previously frozen concoctions which have only a faint visual resemblance to a real hörnchen  and none of the flavor and texture qualities of the genuine article. Some are not even made with puff pastry 😦
However, there is a silver lining –  in my opinion, that stuff is perfectly suitable for a good sandwich or as an accompaniment to a rustic salad.
For today’s lunch I had these babies from a commercial bakery close-by, to share the honors of being my lunch with a “lecker” allgäuer wurstsalat.
Eaten together with the salad, dunked in the rich dressing, they served their purpose as “side bread” well.

If you don’t have access to Fleischwurst  (German Bologna) and  Allgäuer Bergkäse, you can replace them with  Swiss Cheese and  American style Bologna
