Five Minute Photo Shoot: Panko-Fried Eggs and Soldiers

A little post-election night breakfast while getting to work: fried eggs, arugula, and soldiers for dipping. I’ve taken to frying eggs over some toasted panko, an idea picked up from the Zuni Café cookbook.  Your eggs get all crunchy and amazing.  Couldn’t be easier, either: pan over medium-high heat, olive oil, panko, stir until just […]
