I love English breakfast muffins – they’re the base for one of my very favourite things in the world, Eggs Benedict. Toasted English muffins, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs and a liberal coating of one of the French mother sauces, Hollandaise, and you’ve got sex, right in your mouth. There’s just something magical about the harmony of a lemon infused, butter and egg yolk emulsion drizzled over softly poached eggs that’s downright exciting, and a mighty fine start to the day.

Sometimes though, you want something a little less refined. Something that’s less dainty, and more the sort of thing you just grab and stuff in to your gob. Essentially the same, but with a fried egg and bacon instead of a poached one and ham. Replace the hollandaise with melted cheese and HO GOD CAN I JUST EAT IT ALREADY?

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

          • Ryanza

            I’ve not been following but racist and DA has been mentioned

          • Hammersteyn

            Seems like the default response the ANC dishes out to criticism

          • Ryanza

            It was mentioned today again. Something about allowing racists in the DA party. And i’ve heard da+racist before.

            So not sure what it’s about nor do I care to go find out. It will come to me one day.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Don’t support DA Racist Members.

          O_o the what now?

          • Hammersteyn

            hehe

          • Hammersteyn
          • xD

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Is that what the Joker looked like before he fell into the acid?

          • You missed an opportunity to say “It trumps my hand”

          • Hammersteyn

            FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF………I’m okay

          • Sageville

            We don’t play with jokers though?

          • Hammersteyn

            Julias isn’t on any available decks yet

          • miaau

            As a sometimes player of Bridge, that man’s surname does amuse me sometimes, bringing out the Trump card to smash the opposition plans. Especially if it is a surprise.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    That reminds me of my Sunday dinner – a burger served open, two 100g beef patties, cheese, bacon and each topped with a fried egg. Glorious.

  • Sageville

    Eggs on everything!

    I believe Fig has successfully assimilated Geoff….

    • Hammersteyn

      A sad day indeed

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    Love me some English muffins with bacon and egg on. But fried, not poached. 😀

    • DragonSpirit009

      Days like this that I hate my egg allergy!

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Oh damn. That’s not cool at all.

        • DragonSpirit009

          Not at all but it’s mostly just the rawness part that affects me… but I like living on the edge and have a stack of allergy medication. So if the need it great I shall go forth and risk it all.

          • Hammersteyn

            That’s the way! XD

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Haha. 😀

  • VampyreSquirrel

    It’s Tuesday and I feel like I need a end of week dop already… man this week sucks eggs.

    • I know that feeling, been fighting with an incompetent air con company for the last 4 weeks and phoned them 10min ago to tell them (enter profanity language here)

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        That was you? *cough*

        • Oh you

          • VampyreSquirrel

            is that “Oh you” or “Oh! YOU!”?

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Worked longer hours yesterday, worked heavily today, been driving around in my car without an aircon in this kak heat… so yeah… it all adds up.

        • Lets go get some Rum and borrow happiness from tomorrow

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I got rum, just need more coke to mix with it. You’re welcome to come have a couple at my place, if you can find a flight and are happy with using Uber from Lanseria.

          • F5 (refresh)

          • Might be a little late xD

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Awesome, we’ll make a plan man, but the rum will be gone in a month and a half.

          • Then we get more ! 😛

          • VampyreSquirrel

            We’ll have to! What you doing up here anyway?

          • FJ’s wedding

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Shame, poor guy. XD

            I need to give him kak though… I want an invite 😛

    • Hammersteyn

      I’m more of an end of the day dop kinda guy

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        aye

      • VampyreSquirrel

        I may, or may not, be becoming one of those kinda guys… I however cannot confirm or deny this.

        • Hammersteyn

          I’m way past that, some days I just want to drink till I’m tired… Don’t even feel like eating

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Know them feels man.

          • Hammersteyn

            Everyone has those days, some more than other. But it passes fortunately

          • VampyreSquirrel

            At some stage 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Either it passes, or I pass out.

          • Dresden

            You don’t have to eat afterwards 😛

          • Mossel

            Beer is made from malted barley, water, yeast and hops. All four of which are either a plant, liquid or fungi. Thus it’s healthy as fuck.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            SCIENCE YO!

          • Hammersteyn

            XD

  • DragonSpirit009

    That picture just reminds me of the Burger Festival. So much fun… So much pain the next morning!

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      Worth it! 😀

      • DragonSpirit009

        Very worth it!

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    SF Academy video….the horror

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Ooooo 5pm BYE! *waves* *gone*

  • HvR

    LOL, just listened to rapid fire on cape talk, they gave away a gaming mouse as prize. So the host reads of the ad snippet of the mouse.

    “It will greatly improve your EM O BEE AI gaming”

    • Mossel

      haha was it John Maytham?

      • HvR

        No Afrika Melanie was standing in for him.

        Could hear his tone of voice was “WTF?!?!, what BS do they have me reading here”

        Frontosa probably not the best sponsor for CapeTalk audience but I might call in a question later this week for some sweet gaming gear.

  • Doo_Doo_Beans

    s/o to those who can go for two of these right about now
