Simple, aromatic, and most critical – flippin tasty! That’s how I would describe ramp baked eggs if you were to ask me. It’s a delicious start to the day that everyone should try.


Ramp Baked Eggs by Diverse Dinners

So many food bloggers rave about ramps. To be honest, I had never heard of them until I started blogging. How bizarre is that?! I consider myself well-informed, a foodie, as one is called these days. Imagine my surprise that there was a delicate second cousin to the onion out there to be enjoyed, and I hadn’t experienced it as yet. I hate being ignorant where food is concerned, so I made that change today.

I would describe ramps as a hybrid of the scallion and garlic, but much more subtle in taste. They go so well with eggs, which was a welcome surprise. I expected ramps to have more punch to them and maybe overwhelm the eggs, but I was wrong, they work together perfectly.

It has just occurred to me that I should’ve provided pics of these wonderful ramps, but I can’t, I ate them!  

Ramps have a short season, they are only available in the spring, so don’t waste time, and get some ramps pronto, and indulge in some ramp baked eggs just as I did.
