Simple French Eggs

I call this recipe "Simple French Eggs" because the eggs are so much simpler to make than an omelet. Once upon a time, it was my nephew's favorite way to make eggs, he was only eight years old! ~ Skip Straight to the Recipe ~ Eggs: Tis the Season Pastel egg shapes are everywhere this week. They are so pretty! One neighbor has tucked a dozen large eggs (big bunnies, those) into a bed of spring flowers, late-blooming daffodils in the sunny spots, Scotch bluebells in the shady spaces. Down the street, a family with young children has hung small eggs (in lavenders and soft yellows, pearly blues and the palest of pinks) from low boughs of what I can only think to call a weeping cherry. We each mark this Easter week in our own fashion, some secular, many religious. Yet something so simple as an egg can connect us whether we celebrate the rebirth of
