When and if you find yourself in possession of some leftover lobster meat, I suggest you make these eggs.

Delicious eggs. I looked at 4 different stores for lobster. I only found live whole ones and I really wanted to try these. I used lobster flavored chunks which I am sure are not as good as the real thing. The tarragon wa a nice tough.. Only thing I would change is a tad more cayenne..


Leftover lobster??? That would never happen at my house. I buy Langostino tails (frozen) at Trader Joe's, and they work great. You still get the lobster taste, and can always have them on hand. I use them in salads, casseroles, etc.


Decadent and yet so easy, what a great combination! I omitted the tarragon, as I do not care for it. We served it to friends and it was a treat for all. I used a whole steamed lobster, leftover from the previous night. We will plan ahead to have these for breakfast from now on the morning after we enjoy steamed lobster for dinner.
