By now you all remember how I will eat anything for breakfast, leftovers, steak, a burger, it really doesn't matter what food it is, I'm ok with it for breakfast. This new skillet came about because I was craving curry first thing in the morning.
I wanted a curried bean dish darn it and I was having it.
So if you can get past beans for breakfast – and a lot of you are now converts – perhaps you can jump on the curry for breakfast bandwagon?
I chose the Tomato and Cumin sauce from Patak's because I wanted something that was only a medium spice but also wasn't a well known flavor, such as a korma or a butter chicken sauce.
It was so darn good you guys. I can't even begin to describe it. The creamy egg yolk cools down the spice slightly and the kale and beans are a match made in heaven.
If you were looking for an idea for a lovely brunch idea when you were having guests over, this would be it! What a surprise this would be for your company, a gorgeous curry skillet with eggs? Not only that, it's a delightful vegetarian meal that is chock full of protein and vegetables.
So, do you think you would give curry for breakfast a try? I seriously can't get over how amazing the eggs were in this dish, I mean, sure, we already know that drippy gorgeous egg yolks are amazing on just about everything but I never really thought about it with curried beans until now.
And now I can't stop thinking about the next time I can make another curried bean & egg dish. I am sure it will be happening soon!
