Secret Recipe: Eggs in Jail from Outerlands

Outerlands' Eggs in Jail goes by many names: Toad in a Hole, Bird's Nest, or Bull's Eye to list a few. Owner Dave Muller's friends John and Johanna of Mollusk and their daughter Nina were among the first to try the Outer Sunset restaurant's version. Nina called it Eggs in Jail, and the name stuck. Whatever you call it, you'll need a large, well-seasoned cast-iron pan, a two-inch circle cutter, and a heat-resistant pastry brush to make it at home.

First Bite: Dear Mom

Restaurant bars serving artisanal cocktails are the darling of all the new dining rooms popping up in the Mission (see Wo Hing General Store, Tacolicious, and Locanda). So I was curious to check out a new opening by Thieves Tavern bartenders who are turning the trend on its head. Formerly El Rincon Latin Club, Dear Mom is a large (by Mission standards anyway) old-timey saloon that at first glance is purely for drinking bourbons and brews.
