Lamb for Breakfast

We visited friends this past month and on our last day there, our hostess fixed us what she called a Lebanese breakfast. This is how she prepared it

! lb of lamb (ground) cooked in a lightly oiled skillet with salt and pepper to taste, about 1/8 tsp. freshly ground allspice , the zest and juice of one lemon.
When the lamb was cooked through, she took eggs and broke them on top of this mixture and pierced the yolk once with a fork. She covered the skillet and let cook until the eggs were just done.

It was wonderful. She served it with pita, greek olives, and a good sharp cheese. Oh yes, also sliced tomatoes.

What a treat. I have since made it for a supper for us and we enjoyed it tremendously.

GB, perhaps you could sub the eggs with a good melting cheese. Something with a mild flavour so as to not over power the lamb. It would change the origional but still keep lamb on the breaky menu.

Thanks GB, I hear where you are coming from, eggs and I don't get along too well, I usually just bake with them as they bother my system when consumed as is (weird I know).

Maybe something like haluomi, jack or (Canadian) oka - I like all these for there melt-ability and subtle flvour
