Note the date, as bad a this turned out, I think I should win because I have the only documented date :laugh: .

All was going good, but I overheated the pan, so when I put the chorizo and potatoes into the pan with some oil it lit on fire. Even stirring as fast as I could I couldn't prevent some extra crisping :ohmy:. Once that all calmed down, and the potatoes and chorize were done, the eggs went in:

And once it was all done:

On top are sliced wild onions that had been marinated in lemon and olive oil.

To top it all of I was using my thermapen to measure the egg temperature ala Little Steven, but I left it out on the egg and forgot about it, when I came back I closed it but the plastic peace that connects the sensor to the switch was soft and broke apart. OOPS!

You know how important something is to you when the first thing you do after you break one is order another.

    looks like some good eats....
    context is important :)
  • Doug,

    I agree you should win. It cost you a thermapen, maybe the prizewinnings will help you get a new one. ;)

    Ooops :ohmy: Gotta love the boo boos...I've made so many I can't recount them all. The end result looks good to me! ;)
  • Nice thing about the egg is when the pan lights on fire just close up the egg and the fire goes out. Makes an oil fire much less scary.
