“Tonight's supper - Grated hardboiled eggs, with a sprinkling of zaatar, some grated cheese, a smattering of green onions and red juicy tomatoes, topped with a drizzle of olive oil. Now if that doesn't make your mouth water. I used to despise eggs;this I adore. My friend's husband takes credit for this tasty dish. It was love at first sight and first bite. Presentation is simple but amazing. It is a layered dish that is eaten with Arabic pita bread. The magic ingredient is za'atar which can be found in Middle Eastern grocery stores. Also, here is a link to a recipe for za'atar from RecipeZaar member Evelyn/Athens:”
