The Egg as a Neutral Foodstuff

The Husband is disgusted. The object of his disgust is my breakfast – fried/scrambled egg with peanut butter and jam. And this from a man who eats cheese and jam. I don’t see the problem. Surely egg is neutral, until you flavour it with either sweet or savoury? Chocolate pancake, pepper omelette. Cake, mayonnaise. The difficulty of course is that being a coeliac out here is a challenge. No toast for breakfast because there is no lovely supermarket with gluten-free food.
