    Sounds interesting. Might benefit from seasoning

          They are actually very good together. However, I've always cooked or had them cooked separately.

                Michael, the recipe is for pig's brains, not cow's brains.  I didn't think pigs were susceptible to bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
                 
                I've always been curious about how brains taste.  The only time I tried to order them (at a restaurant in Vienna), they were out of them.

                  When Mom made em, they were great.   But years ago when I tried to make 'pig' brains & eggs, they just don't taste that great.    ... Maybe I'll try again. I don't think I soaked in salt water.
                   
                  Any way this is not a 'no brainer'

                        No no no -  many years ago my Mom would make this but very seldom.  I seem to remember the brains came in a jar?   Not sure - but I AM sure I wouldn't eat them.

                                I grew up having fish eyes in my soup. If you enjoy brains & eggs...enjoy.

                                I'd eat brains before the "business" section...for sure.

                                    A little toast with jelly & it's not the end of the world.

                                    Unless biscuits are a must.

                                        Once at a nice restaurant, the gentleman with me or ordered fish.  It was served fried 'whole'  ... that is head, scales and all.   You carefully pull back the skin back and pull the meat from the bones.    You did not just cut into the fish or the inners would spill out.    ...

                                          I might try it if the person cooking it didnt tell me there were brains in it.....knowingly, no way.

                                            Back in the40's (Geez, I must be getting old), my uncle operated a slaughterhouse and did custom slaughtering for whomever was wanting. We visited the farm every summer for a few weeks, and Mom and Auntie worked to feed the horde of adults and 5 kids. On occasion, Uncle would bring home some of the "delicacies" the customer didn't want after the butchering. Mom and Auntie would open the package and squeal with delight at an assortment of brains, sweetbreads, kidneys, beef hearts, tongues, or whatever was there. They'd cook up a storm and try to get us kids to partake. I don't recall any of us taking them up on that. They, however, would enjoy the fare immensely. To this day, I have never tried any of these, and don't plan to either. Thanks for listening.

                                              Chris Ayers and I sampled brains and eggs on the 2011 Glee Club trip. I didn't much care for the flavor myself.

                                                I'll order brains and eggs for breakfast any time I see it on a menu, which is not very often. In fact, I've had the dish only twice in my life - once at a huge truck stop just off I-95 about where it joins 301 north of Richmond; and again two years ago at Skyline Jack's in St Petersburg, Fl. It was excellent both times.
                                                 
                                                But, then, I like sweetbreads, liver, heart, kidneys, etc...

                                                  I can see Vincent Price or Boris Karloff preparing this.

                                                  Or Anthony Hopkins in one of those "Silence of the Lambs" follow-ups, where he cut off and removed the top of Ray Liotta's skull while Ray was sitting at the dinner table and smiling.  Apparently freshness is paramount.
                                                   
                                                  Around here we've had headcheese forever.   Wikipedia says it doesn't usually include the brain, but does include other tasty parts.  Not tasty enough for me, though.

                                                    In head cheese it's the goo that holds the bits together that is especially gross.

                                                          I never seen head cheese to be made with brains.   The brains was saved for breakfast to served with eggs.    On the farm it wasn't wasted that way.   Just not that much brains from a 200-240 lb hog.

                                                            My Nona (mother's mother) would make brains and eggs for my father.  I think she felt sorry for him because my mother would not allow them in the house!  As much as I love sweetbreads and other offal, I'm thinking I would not like brains.
