Venetian Eggs

This is one of those recipes that you must try. I wasn’t so sure I would like it, but it was served to me as breakfast by my husband’s father. Mind you, this was on my first visit to Cincinnati as Tom’s girlfriend. Papa (as he was later known in our house and to all the kids’ friends) served this with such pride. It is delicious and a great variation to bacon-and-egg type breakfasts.
