Difference between Eve with a lid on and Eve with a moldy lid

Eve with a lid on—(U.S. diners) apple pie (the reference being to the biblical Eve with an apple):

  • The first couple (Adam and Eve) make an appearance as poached eggs on toast: Adam and Eve on a Raft. Eve appears solo as another name for apple pie: Eve with a Lid On.

Eve with a moldy lid—(U.S. diners) apple pie with a slice of cheese:

  • There are plenty of other short order cook gems like Eve with a Moldy Lid and Zeppelins in a Fog (sausages in mashed potatoes).
