Hard boiled, water poached, sunny side up, scrambled with cheese, fancy omelettes, devilled, I can consume eggs in any form or all of those put together on a lazy weekend breakfast buffet (gluttony was named after me!).
Eggs are the butter to my bread, the single-most consistent love of my life.
So I present to you my most favorite spin on eggs that will make your breakfast brighter and creamier and cheesier and snazzier and.. Okay I will stop now.
1. Eggs florentine – Crunchy toast, topped with a slice of chicken ham, beautiful wilted spinach crumbled with feta finished with a fried egg. Blend a smoothie on the side and you will never complain about a boring breakfast again. (Idea from this recipe)
2. Cheddar cheese scrambled eggs – This scramble is for that cheese loving person inside you. And like most things that call for cheese, be very generous with it.
You will need – 2 eggs, a couple of tablespoons of cream, half a cup of grated cheddar cheese, salt and pepper, italian seasoning, oregano. Serve with sausages and crunchy toast.
3. Mexican style scrambled eggs – I first saw this recipe on Nigella Lawson’s show and fell in love with the idea. Crispy pieces of tortilla, tomatoes, spring onions, chillies, this scramble gives a zingy mexican twist to your eggs and it is a meal in itself. I added some chopped chicken ham for extra thrills.
You will need – 1 large tomato – deseeded and chopped, chopped spring onions, a cup of chopped tortilla, 3 eggs, 1 tbsp of cream, seasoning. Fry the tortillas until crisp, remove and keep in a bowl. Now fry tomatoes and spring onions for a couple of minutes, add the seasoned and creamed egg and the tortilla, add chilli flakes and cook for 2-3 minutes. Serve with crunchy toast and fresh orange juice.
Phew. There are never enough reasons why we shouldn’t love eggs so much.
