Nun's Puffs

Nun's Puffs
Nun's Puffs.
Not a clue where that name come from.
Perhaps these were invented by...nuns? I dunno.
My feelings about these little breakfast time treats extends beyond the name-I just can't figure out how I feel about the taste. The recipe made them seem sweeter, and said to serve with honey. But, they're quite egg-y. They taste more savory than I had thought-I'm pretty curious what they would taste like with some cheese and scallions baked in, or something like that. Michael liked them a bunch, either way, and I'm still curious to play around with them more. They're definitely unique, and a good thing to give a try!

(Sorry this is such a short post. I'm working 11 hours for an event out in Manhattan today. Blech. The pay check will make it all worth it...when I finally receive it, 2 months from now. *sigh* The life of a person with a non-real job.)
