Moonstruck Eggs

Moonstruck (Cher and Nicolas Cage) is one of the movies my mom and I used to watch together, if it was on TV, we had to watch it because it was one of our favorite films.

It’s a story about love, and family bonds. But what I also find so endearing about the movie aside from the storyline and characters are the scenes in which the family sits together to discuss anything and everything around the dinner table sharing food and drink.

In the movie there is a scene with Cher and Olympia Dukakis, she is standing by the stove with a cast iron skillet and is preparing two pieces of bread with the centers removed and an egg frying inside, with a side of roasted red peppers.

So, as a tribute I give you my version of these eggs.
