Green Eggs And


Okay, not ham.

But, the *Rustica Omelet* from Mezzogiorno in the Central Market in York, PA turned green from pesto. I totally forget why Dr. Seuss’ eggs are green. Too much salsa verde? Anyway, this egg dish is filled with roasted red peppers, portobello mushrooms, onions, walnuts (kinda threw me off to have nuts in an egg dish, but I soon got into the surprise crunch every few bites), and swiss cheese. Served with pre-buttered (!) toast and deliciously crunchy, yet tender potatoes. Yes, I did apply extra butter to my toast. I have schmear issues.

    I was lucky enough to have a bite of this dish and it was fantastic! Happy to see your York trip was an enjoyable experience.

    This story would be so much more fun with a photo of the author and her friend along with the Green Eggs…

    Stef! THANKS for making our favorite bistro national – Breakfast and/or lunch at “Mezzo” is always a gastronomic delight, in my book. And the company is great fun, too!
    By the way, re Patti’s comment…it’s MACCERATED strawberries…!!! Sounds kind of violent for breakfast, but, I understand, delish!

    Dr. Seuss’s eggs were inexplicably green. I personally think it was because he was cooking in an iron skillet. That actually happens.

    PS it was Dr. Seuss’s birthday Monday.
