Mushroom eggs from Basque Country for Sunday brunch.

While I won’t say that every brunch dish we make at home won’t actually be brunch-ish or brunch-adjacent, I have to admit that this new little exercise of ours is encouraging me to scour my cookbooks for the dishes I felt would always be perfect for that time of day first. Since most of them…
