Egg & Onion Breakfast
(Chadds Ford, Pa)
This is my mothers & grandmothers recipe. We ate it for breakfast. It may sound weird, but it's so yummy. The first time I served it to my non- Italian hubby, I thought he would look at me like I was nuts. To my surprise, he loved it. It's now his favorite breakfast.
INGREDIENTS2 TBL butter
2 TBL olive oil
3 large onions, sliced
3 teaspoons chicken base
3 cups water
salt & pepper to taste
2 cups leftover Italian bread, torn or cut in 2 x 2 inch chunks.
Fry onions in butter & olive oil until soft. Whisk in the chicken base and water, season with salt & pepper to your taste.
When liquid boils, crack the eggs into the pan.
Cover & simmer until the eggs are just cooked but before the yolks get hard.
Serve over the bread chunks in a bowl & drizzle with more olive oil.
