Breakfast for Dinner, Pt. VI

All aboard the runny egg train- next stop, Tunisia! There, they have a pastry called a brik. An egg brik consists of encasing an entire egg in a flakey triangle of pastry dough, which is also filled with onion and spinach and parsley and other delightful things. This is then deep-fried, but just enough so that the egg is still a delicious runny mess.

Then things get better: There is a Tunisian tradition where the mother of the bride makes an egg brik for the groom, and he must eat it without getting yummy eggy goo all over himself. If he spills the egg, then the wedding is off. More people should base marriage off of things like the ability to eat eggs.
