breakfast club friday

because everybody at my office loves food, last year we started "breakfast club friday". the rules are simple. one person brings breakfast for the group. there are about 25 of us, so each person ends up only bringing food about twice a year. breakfast can be homemade or store bought, just as long as it's food. we've had everything from sausage casseroles & homemade cinnamon buns to whataburger taquitos & cold pizza with beer. no joke. we work in advertising, after all. 

it was robert's turn this past friday, so he tried something new: giada de laurentis' lemon & basil eggs over foccacia. the recipe is simple:

1. hollow out your bread loaf (our local bakery was out of foccacia, so robert used a french loaf instead).

2. brush it with a lemon & olive oil mixture & bake for a few minutes.

3. pour egg, basil, cheese, salt & pepper & milk mixture (he made one with ham) in the bread.

4. bake until the eggs have cooked, about 40 minutes.

it was quite a hit & really simple. we'll definitely be making this more often at our house. you can find giada's detailed recipe here
