I was sooo inspired by Mochachocolata-Rita's recent blog post. Her man and her cooked up a storm with this 3 egg fried rice. We still have our expensive century egg (AU$2 for each one!) and of course, free range chicken eggs in the fridge. So off I went to grab some salted duck eggs... and my eyes nearly popped out... $6 for 6 salted duck eggs. Oh why must they be so expensive. When I was growing up, I recall that I could have 1/2 a salted duck egg and plain porridge for lunch. Now, in Australia, salted eggs are a luxury food item? crazy!
Did I just use the "when I was growing up, la da de da" phrase? ARGH!
My version is slightly different from Rita's. I used whatever veges I have on hand, and added heaps of white pepper and some soy in it.
What I love about this dish? You would never know what egg you are biting into.. could it be the salty egg yolk? or the silky century egg? Always a surprise.
