A Few Of Our Favorite Eggs In Dallas

eggby Steven Doyle

There has been this terrific trend in past years of adding an egg to most anything to make a more supple and delicious. The burger is a prime target for this unabashed egging, and always a welcome garnish on any style of tartare. The egg, if prepared correctly, provides a silky self-saucing thrill that ups the ante to sandwiches, pasta and salads. Eggs are not just for breakfast. Today we explore a handful of primo examples of how the egg has enhanced many dishes in the Dallas area.

Named for local attorney Steve Stodghill, who always attacked everything with excitement, including his burgers. Get this: beef patty, bacon, aged cheddar, and egg over easy gorged between a foie buttered bun.
