  1. Hi Cynthia,

    Firstly, I’m not entirely sure why, but when I first saw the name I envisioned hard boiled eggs smothered in salsa.

    However, your take on salsa verde eggs is something that I’d probably find far more flavoursome.

    I must admit I’m fairly boring when it comes to the cooking and consumption of eggs, and this is probably why I often go weeks and weeks without.

    But, I’m liking what I see here and can’t wait to give it a go.

    Simple, but tasty.


    1. Eggs can get a little boring but they’re nutritious and inexpensive so I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to make them. I’m glad you liked this one and I’d love to know how it turned out for you!

      Now you have me intriqued with the thought of hard boiled eggs and salsa. Is this something you’ve eaten?

  2. Hmm I can see that you definitely put it On eggs, but I am not a fan of putting much on my eggs. That’s just a personal choice, nonetheless, I definitely will be having this salsa because I want to learn how to make some salsa for other stuff, it doesn’t have to be for eggs. I really appreciate this information I appreciate the recipes you provide

    1. Thank you for your kind comments!  You’re not alone in your dislike of the egg/tomato combo but to each his own, right?  Enjoy the salsa.

  3. This is a mouth-watering way to cook an egg for breakfast and a lovely combination. Although I love eggs it can get a little boring doing scrambled all the time and salsa seems to compliment eggs every time. This is a nice quick recipe and filling too.

    Now I’m hungry it’s time to get cooking. Thanks for the idea. Lily

    1. I agree with you that scrambled eggs can get a bit stale!  But eggs are inexpensive and nutritious so I’ve come up with some interesting ways to cook them.  I hope you’ll check out some of my other egg recipes.

  4. Hello Cynthia, 

    You have some really good recipes here. I am not a fan of tomatoes with eggs. This has always been something I cannot eat. I do want to give some kudos for the apple butter recipe though. I have tried this one and it may not be the healthiest suggestion but I took a regular tube of store-bought biscuits and deep-fried them to eat with the apple butter and it was delightful!

    These are also good by themselves if you toss them in some cinnamon sugar as you pull them out of the fryer.

    I am going to try the peanut butter cookies next. 

    Thanks for the good eats!


    1. Fried biscuits?  You definitely have my attention!  I’m going to try that very soon.  As for the store-bought biscuits?  We’re all allowed the occasional short cut.

      Thank you for your comments and I hope you like the cookies!
