A shocked man has shared a photo of a breakfast combining two foods probably best eaten separately.
Jeffery Russell shared on Reddit a snap of a peculiar mean consisting of sliced hard-boiled egg and pieces of banana. Egg. And banana.
The egg has been boiled for some time, so much so that the yolk has started to crumble and mix with the moist sweetness of the fruit. There’s also evidence of dark circles on the inside of the white of the egg, which is best avoided.
The banana looks fine. Perfectly ripe, in fact. But then it is in a bowl of boiled egg.
Since Jeffery posted the photo, it’s since been a topic of fascination. We don’t know where, exactly, the photo was taken, or who the person is eating, but we’ve asked.
Given the public response, we imagine the owner of the dish will be disinclined to own up, however. Most people seem repulsed at the idea of blending savoury, slippery eggs with soft, sugary banana. It can’t taste nice, surely?
However nutritious it may be. Lemongrade points out: “I mean it’s a pretty healthy meal I guess. Gross sure. But hard boiled eggs and banana is nutritious.”
One commenter wrote: “Hard-boiled eggs, good. Bananas, good. Hard-boiled eggs and bananas in a bowl, I’d be questioning my life choices”.
Another person said the dish reminded them of Rachel’s famous trifle on Friends. It was an odd mix of cottage pie, custard and cream.
Let’s end with Captnjip’s thoughts: “I had a friend that did this, only he added cottage cheese into the mix. It smelled like farts.”
