So happy that I found my way back to your blog. I bookmarked it a couple weeks ago because I wanted to try this recipe out then suddenly couldn't find it in my bookmarks tab!

This dish has changed my life...if I were asked what I'd like to have for my last supper on earth, this would be it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Note: I had it with medium-boiled eggs instead of fried! Just as scrumptious!
