Eggs w/ Salami Pizza "Toast" - Post Valentine's Day Brunch

This morning I made a very easy and delicious brunch. I had leftover Salami and Roasted Tomato & Cheese Pizza left from the other day. I reheated it on the stove in a skillet so the crust would re-crisp and I topped our pizza slices with a fried egg. I also made fresh strawberries dipped in 88% dark chocolate to serve with our breakfast. It was a delicious breakfast and the crispy slices of salty salami pizza made the perfect platform to serve fried eggs on. We could actually pick them up and eat them. This was sort of an "I'm sorry I couldn't make yesterday's Valentine's Day breakfast special" for you hubby but thanks for agreeing to take a rain check for next weekend. 

I had hoped to make something special for yesterday's brunch to celebrate Valentine's Day, but was not able to since I spent hours in the doctor's office (again). I have been sick for almost 5 weeks now and just can't seem to shake this. I won't lie, I feel extremely guilty that I couldn't just suck it up again yesterday to make Valentine's Day special but I had gotten significantly worse. So, we will plan to do something special next weekend instead. Until then, this morning's breakfast/brunch will do. I will definitely be making this combination of salami pizza topped with an egg's so much tastier than the usual egg, sausage and toast. Enjoy!

GGC, I am so sorry you are still sick, and worse at that. Hopefully yesterday's doc visit will be just what you needed and this will soon pass.

Your breakfast sounds and looks great!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

Thanks so much Alice. I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day.

This evening I feel like the antibiotics are finally beginning to take hold and feel a little better. Keeping my fingers crossed it continues. Thank you! :-)

Dear Ayla, I am in the same boat!
Please do not feel guilty about not preparing something *special*. I think all your dishes are unique and wonderful.
You really deserve a rest! We have plenty of recipes (archives) to keep us happy.
Get well soon!
Since my husband went to the mountains, I stayed in bed all day and caught up on missing sleep. Maybe you could do the same?
Bis bald!

Thanks Barbara. So happy you are able to get caught up on your much needed sleep, too. Fortunately I rested most of the day yesterday because I think I coughed most of the night last night. I'm home today so will rest up. Take care! :-)

I'm glad you're putting off your Valentine's celebration till you're much better ... which will be Very Soon, I hope!

The egg/pizza idea is just great! Sometimes the Incredible Edible Egg needs a bit of gussying up. Today we had left-over sauce from your latest Italian chicken dish on our hard-cooked eggs ... *squisito*! ;-)

Hi CyberSis,

Thanks. Oh my...I bet that sauce was great over eggs...I will have to remember that. Great idea for leftover sauce. :-)
