Eggs and Apples

As previously noted, Lyle once said, "We can't have our eggs and apples, too." Actually, according to the Religion of Peace (RoP), we can, but we shouldn't [emphasis added]:
Islam Online - Modern allergists also advise against improper food combining and tell us that many combinations can create synergistic allergic reactions. In the book The Whole Way to Allergy Relief and Prevention, Dr. Krohn advises us not to combine milk with chocolate, mint, or fish; corn and bananas; beef and yeast; eggs and apples; or cola and chocolate.
This article also includes an example of the always amusing tendency of the followers of the RoP to claim that absolutely everything can be found in the Quran:
A tradition states, “There are no new ideas, just new people to discover them." It is, in fact, amazing to find how many "modern discoveries" have already been written about in the Qur’an or Hadith.
Right. In fact once they discovered that the Blackberry was written up in the Quran, the patents were clearly invalidated, and a settlement was inevitable. To think people used to think that the PoA was just eating blackberries, when actually he was using them to call his followers.

But we digress...

UnklB points out that the French in Medieval times did prepare a dish called a "rique-manger" that combined eggs and apples:
Peel, core, and slice apples, and Parboil them in water until just tender. Drain off the water and then fry them in butter. Remove from pan and set aside. Beat eggs and fry, adding apples back to the pan just before they're finished. Sprinkle with fine spice powder and saffron. Serve hot.
"Manger" is the infinitive form of the verb "to eat," but I find no translation for "rique."

So there is some evidence that we can have our eggs and apples, too.
