A Zhougy egg salad with toast

I’m really sorry if I am going overboard with my enthusiasm for Zhoug (or Schug) across social media. Yes, this Yemeni condiment made with cilantro, peppers and spices now comes ready made at Trader Joe’s and my universe has been transformed with possibilities. So this morning, we had an easy but superbly yummy Zhougy egg salad with toast and you might want to give it a try!

Waffling a sweet potato? Yes for sure!

I recently read somewhere that some creative soul had tried to toast sliced sweet potatoes for breakfast and the outcome was amazing!  I chuckled about this to a friend and she goes, “I’m going to try waffling the sweet potato”….just inserting the slices into a waffle iron and letting the iron do its magic.

Well, that was just the push I needed to do this in my own kitchen.  I greased a waffle iron and waffled my sweet potatoes in there.  Unlike a regular waffle, I repeated the process a few times to get the right level of browning.  What came out simply melted in my mouth with just a little bit of butter on top.  To make it a complete breakfast, I added in a soft-boiled egg and a sliced avocado.

Take a look pre and post and do let me know if you’ve tried this!
