Kung Jung Eggs with Portuguese Sausage and Rice


Matzo Meal Pancakes

  • Separate 2 eggs. Put the whites in a medium bowl, big enough for whipping them. Place the yellows in a similar size bowl.
  • To the yolks, add 2 tablespoons of matzo meal, one tablespoon of sparkling water (seltzer), and a pinch of salt. Combine, using a small whisk or fork.
  • Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks and then fold the egg whites into the yellow mixture.
  • Heat a small skillet on medium to medium-high. Once heated, add one tablespoon of oil, then add the matzo meal mixture.
  • Cook until you see it sizzle around the edges and firm up. Then, depending on your skill in the kitchen, you can either flip the pancake like a pro or grab a spatula to turn it over. (Dormant chef flipped, I used a spatula) It should be nicely browned.
  • It only needs to cook briefly on the flip side to brown and finish firming up the interior.
  • Flip the bubula onto a plate, sprinkle with granulated sugar. A little cinnamon is nice too. Powdered sugar would be attractive but I have always loved the texture of the granulated sugar with the matzo meal pancake.

Soy Sauce Eggs with Portuguese Sausage and Rice

  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the Portuguese sausage slices until nicely browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  • Whisk together the eggs, and soy sauce.
  • Heat another pan over medium-low heat, add the oil, and then the egg mixture.
  • Stir occasionally with a rubber spatula, cooking slowly and evenly, about 2 - 3 minutes depending upon your stove.
  • Serve the eggs and sausage slices over warm rice.
