Eggs. We love them.  Almost as much as Edie…

From Pink Flamingos, by John Waters

And just for the Easter holiday I’ve got some real Edie pleasers.

From the cracking Key Kookin’ comes…

French Fried Deviled Eggs

6 deviled eggs

2 egg yolks

Flour

Fine dry bread crumbs

Put deviled egg halves together and secure with toothpicks. Dip in egg yolks which have been mixed lightly with fork, then flour, then in bread crumbs. Fry in deep fat until brown. Drain on absorbent paper and remove picks. Serve over cooked green vegetables or with Creole sauce.

Bacon Sundae

Categorized it under “I’ll Try Anything Once”, the Burger King Bacon Sundae was better than I originally thought but not good enough to make me buy another one. Still, I’d buy most strange food things; if there was a pickle sundae, weasel sundae or pizza sundae, I’d be lining up. I did see pizza ice cream offered at a not so distant ice cream shop and my new kickstarter.com fave, Little Baby’s Ice Cream…www.littlebabysicecream.com. I have yet to try it, but the draw is powerful. However, this is getting off the topic.

On the whole, the Bacon Sundae was not bad; the salty flavor and crunch of the bacon was not an unpleasant compliment to the sweet softness of the hot fudge and caramel sauces that swirled around a huge heaping of vanilla soft serve. On top of the ice cream, a few bacon pieces were sprinkled about, with a larger slice jutting from the middle. The less than thrilled Burger King employee seemed even less thrilled still to have to make one; he was gloved up practically to his elbows and wielding some nasty looking tongs as he jammed in the final slice of bacon with a grim face. As the photo shows, the lack of love kept my sundae from looking like the shining example in the BK ad.

(and a special note of thanks to the nice Jewish boy who bought it for me but couldn’t watch me eat it)
