A fried egg on top of a browned head of lettuce? That’s definitely a… new interpretation of salad.

Is it warm, wilted lettuce topped with a fried egg, or is it “Simply Nigella?” In this case the answer is both.

Nigella Lawson, TV personality and home cook connoisseur, bewildered and befuddled her viewers when she touted a brand-new interpretation of Caesar salad: a baked head of Iceberg lettuce, stuffed with garlic and anchovies, topped with a fried egg, on top of a piece of toast. Twitter users everywhere are simply baffled that the British TV personality decided to stick a head of Iceberg lettuce in the oven and call it a salad.

The episode appeared on week three of her Simply Nigella show which airs on BBC2.

“Fried egg over burnt lettuce with fish bits and toast. Home economics lessons were wasted on Nigella,” one Twitter user summarized.
