Show and Tell: Von Ruxpin

Tonight is Martini Wednesday, and I may (or may not) be the tiniest bit tipsy as I type this.


Hubs is currently on his way to Ma.ca.roni Gr.ill to pick up some dinner, and I am left to my own devilish devices. Yes, I do realize, even in my semi-drunken state, that it's a bit sad for my devilishness to extend only to participating in show and tell. Whatever. Deal with it.


I also realized shortly after deciding to participate that I might not have anything particularly interesting to share for show and tell. And even if I did have an interesting photo to share, I may not have anything interesting to say about it. So I went with it. I opened iPhoto and chose the first pic that looked good to me. Here it is:



What you see above is known in some very small circles as the Von Ruxpin Breakfast Sandwich. Hubs and I came up with it one fine Sunday morning when we wanted something yummy for breakfast, but only had 2 eggs, some bacon and a couple hamburger buns. I thought an egg fried in a pan on its own wouldn't quite fit on the tiny bun, so I pulled out my teddy bear cookie cutter and cooked the egg inside of it. And viola! Delicious AND adorable! Right?


(Note: if you attempt to make a Von Ruxpin of your own, I highly recommend applying some non-stick spray to the cookie cutter prior to frying the egg. Also, and this is pretty obvious, a metal cookie cutter is probably your best bet!)
