Fresh Eggs

My friend ST keeps a few laying hens and I was the recipient of a dozen brown beauties. So tonight, the menu is as follows:

Mimosas (Gratien & Meyer Brut French sparkling wine from Saumur, not from concentrate orange juice, and juice from a lime wedge)

Scrambled eggs seasoned with salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of dried chervil

Market bacon (from the Fresh Market)

Surry sausage links (again, from the Fresh Market)

Homemade hash browns with Yukon Gold potatoes, onions, and red bell pepper (boil the peeled and chunked potatoes until fork tender; while the potatoes are boiling, saut̩ chopped onion and pepper until tender Рuse bacon grease, if possible; add the potatoes to onion and pepper and cook to desired crispiness; season with salt and pepper)
