Default Tried something new (foodwise)

It's called Jachnun and is an Israeli rolled dough. I made it for my kids. It bakes at 200 for about 12 hours. I tried a bite because it's new to us, and it's delicious!!! It'll be interesting to see how it affects my BG when I test in an hour. I only ate a small amount. I baked egged in their shell in with it, and ate one of those.

I wondered what that is, so I did a search and found this site with pictures. An interesting read.
Cafe Liz » Jachnun — Yemenite breakfast » the kosher vegetarian Israeli food blog

This item would not be on my eating plan - pure carbs, looks like. But I bet it tasted good.

It was. I only had a small taste (compared to my pre diabetic days when I lonely would have eaten the whole thing). It was quite delicious. The hard boiled (baked) egg actually absorbs some of the oils, so the white was brown.

How do you bake an egg that way?

It does look good, but way out of my carb range too unfortunately. I'd be interested in hearing about baked eggs too by the way.

I just put the eggs in with the jachnun and they slow baked overnight. I won't be eating the jachnun regularly, but the small bite to try was not detrimental and enough to satisfy my curiosity.

Sometimes you just have to have a taste. As you said, one bite didn't do any harm.

Interesting, I've never heard of baked eggs before. I suppose it has to be the slow long bake though.

You are lucky to have others in your household so you can try recipes and just have a bite to try it!! Living alone, I don't have that option!

It was good, and really hard to resist having more than just a bite!!! I don't think I'll make it weekly, as my kids only ate one and a bit of the rolls, so I still have three left over

I'm used to baked eggs where you crack the egg open and cook it in a ramekin or a muffin cup.

Baked Eggs and Mushrooms in Ham Crisps, How To Make Baked Eggs and Mushrooms in Ham Crisps, Egg Recipes, Baked Egg Recipes, Brunch Recipe

But there's also an African dish where eggs in the shell are baked at low temperature for about five hours (to replicate cooking them in the ashes of a wood fire). Sounds like an interesting experiment.
