APFK RATING: EASY
Eggs, no matter how you have them, with a kiss, or not, you can have them anytime of the day! I could have one for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
My host children love eggs for breakfast. Either cooked scrambled for 1 kid or fried for another, changes everyday. My favourite is scrambled eggs on top of vegemite and avocado on toast.
They are full of health benefits loaded with nutrients. Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk.
In a bowl, crack the amount of eggs you want. Whisk with a fork, add a splash of milk, butter, pinch of salt & pepper if you want, eggs are just great on their own. In a pan, add oil or butter so that the egg doesn’t stick. Pour the eggs in. Stir and mix now and then to break the egg up. Plate up.
In a pan add oil or butter. Crack your egg(s) into the pan. Once the egg white has turned pure white and the yolk has changed colour slightly, it’s ready. Flip it over if you want the top fried.
Pour water about half way into a pan and boil. When boiled, add the egg, use a spoon to lower it in. Everyone likes their eggs differently than others, so check how long is right for you; A perfectly boiled egg. I left mine in for 5 mins.
Get a spoon and pick up your egg, run under cold water for a few secs. Place on a hard surface and roll with little pressure with your palm to break the shell of the egg, or use a spoon and crack. Use your fingers to gently remove the shell.
A boiled egg is great for a snack or to add in a lunch box.
Pour water half way in a pan, wait until the water is boiling. Crack your egg into a cup, and gently pour into the water. Leave to cook for 2-3 mins. Or until you see white froth on top.
Scoop the egg out with a slotted spoon, so that the water can drain off, nobody wants soggy toast.
- Salt and pepper always adds extra lift to an egg, even some chicken salt.
