Fried Eggs with Ramps and Bacon

Fried Eggs with Ramps and Bacon

Blink and they're gone! It looks like ramp season is over here in Toronto which is unfortunate but I certainly did enjoy them over the three weeks that they were available. Last week I pick up a few bunches of them and I was enjoying them for breakfasts during the week. Sometimes the simplest things are the best and this and this breakfast consisting of fried eggs, sauted ramps and a bit of bacon was definitely one of my favourites. Well, I mean you really can't go wrong when you start out with a little bacon and then you cook everything else in the tasty bacon grease and then you finish things off with a runny egg yolk! I served this breakfast along with a side of fiddleheads in a honey dijon vinaigrette.

I always had trouble finding ramps and when Whole Paycheck started carrying them, I realized I didn't know what to do with them! I think I still seem them there, so I might just try this while I still can!

Kevin - Any idea how readily available ramps/wild leeks are available in Canada? I'm in Montreal but not sure I've ever seen them in store. Any advice?

Andrea: Ramp season just ended here in Ontario but you might still be able to find them in Montreal. In Toronto, I have only ever seen them at farmers markets and not regular grocery stores.

So am I the only one who things this looks like sperm hovering around an egg? LOL. Having said that, it does look good. Love the blog so far.
