I’ve never actually bought fig spread, but some friends of ours got it for us as a late wedding gift…a very late wedding gift, combined with a baby gift.  Regardless, it was a lovely basket of Italian foods (our honeymoon destination), red wine, truffle oil, salami, pesto, some baby gear, and fig spread.  So after our first meal of fancy crackers, cheese and salami with the fig spread I thought I’d mix it up and take it to breakfast.  The sweet fruit with the salty ham and ooozy egg yolk is my kind of mixture, but I guess not for everyone, my husband asked for his ham and eggs plain!
