    Very good.The tangy taste of sumac is so unexpected on eggs.I fried my eggs in salted butter so omitted the salt.

    Crazy simple & delicious - I love the zip of sumac I get with each bite of egg! Made for Ramadan Tag 8/09. I made these tonight (3/23/12) to top my polenta/sauteed spinach/sumac egg layered dinner creation. yum!

    I've used sumac before, so knew the flavor. I've never had it on eggs though, so I was a bit timid in the sprinkling....loved it. I did eat this with fruit and toast, and ever since I was a kid, I've drug my toast through my egg....just delicious! Thanks for a delicious breakfast today! Made for ZWT.

    I lightly sprinkled my eggs with the sumac since I am fairly new to the flavor. I did like it, but think it would be easy to overdo the flavor. My eggs did take on a slight violet tinge while sitting so sprinkle at the last minute. Made for ZWT7.


    I replaced a small amount (about 1/4 teaspoon per egg) of the olive oil with butter. The amount of sumac was also reduced a little. Served with Recipe #443953, fresh orange slices and strawberries and corn tortillas to scoop up the eggs. Fresh cilantro for garnish and color. Thanks for posting! Will make again very soon and have added the recipe to my cooking menu rotation. The eggs would be delicious served over raw or lightly wilted greens, especially arugula. Reviewed fro NA*ME tag.
