My review went walking away! I can't remember exactly what I wrote, but I do know that I loved those eggs! I had all of the ingredients on hand and the recipe was easy to put together. It was so delicious! Thank you!

I made this about a week ago and reviewed it. But the review never showed.Usually doesn't take that long. Anyway, we liked this a lot, even though we didn't have sourdough bread! I'm making again tonight, in fact! (Still no sourdough bread - lol)

This was a memorable bite! Made this for two, used a red serrano chili and the stalks of the cilantro (for the roots) The lime is the perfect foil for the heat. At the table finished with a good grinding of pepper. We both thoroughly enjoyed! Will be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing Pat! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

The fresh lime juice is perfect - almost made a mini salsa. Really enjoyed our Sunday Brunch. I cannot get coriander root and do not know if the flavour is just a stronger coriander flavour but I doubled the coriander leaves and everything tasted great.
