Eggie Recipes*

So recently someone got in contact with me to send me a few products and a couple of days a go I got through the letter box (sort of); an egg poacher! Now as odd as it may seem, I was actually pretty chuffed as recently I've been eating a lot of eggs on toast and omelettes etc, because they're so easy, cheap and eggs last ages! Perfect for students!


So I decided to put together a little post on all things egg related for any of you out there in need of egg inspiration!? So here are some egg recipes;

Firstly an easy peasy yummy one to catch your attention;

Banana Pancakes made from just banana and eggs!

I did do a blog post on these a while back which you can see here

(it's basically mixing banana and eggs in a blender and then cooking them like pancakes!)


So yummsky!

Scrambled Eggs with Hummus and Smoked Salmon


Makes for a really nice snack or breakfast with a bit o' toast!


Hearty Omelette with Tomato and onion sauce

Another simple one; with just eggs, a tin of chopped tomatoes, 1 onion (cheese for the top)
The tomato sauce would probably make 2 maybe 3 portions and I usually use 2 eggs per omelette

For the sauce simply chop up your onion, fling it in a sauce pan and cook until soft

Add the chopped tomatoes and leave to simmer until its thickened a bit

Leave the sauce on a low heat when cooking the omelette, by whisking the eggs in a bowl and add some butter into the frying pan to prevent sticking.

Pop the egg mixture into the pan and swirl it round so it covers the pan. (you could fry some onions or peppers before you put the egg in or I chose to add spinach) Leave to cook and keep pulling the sides of the omelette into the middle using a spatula/fish slice (don't know the difference myself). Keep on going until the top isn't so liquid that it would dribble everywhere if you flipped it! 

Leave the bottom to brown a little and you could either flip the omelette to cook the other side or sometimes I stick it under the grill to cook the top a bit more but prevents it drying out too much.

Once cooked, spoon the tomato mixture onto the omelette and top with grated cheese, then fold over onto your plate and voila!


Using my Egg poacher!*

Now I'd never used an egg poacher before so when I received this from British Lion Eggs I did have to fiddle with it a bit to figure out how to use it, but it was really useful, easy and quick!





Simply pop some water in the pan, put the tray with the little egg cups on the top on a low heat and crack the egg into the cup! Simples!

I think I probably cooked it a bit longer that it needed, but it was actually a great egg and came out very easily (when normally I get bits of egg stuck to the metal ring or the bottom of the pan).


What are your favourite recipes recently? Any egg recipes I should try?

    1. Thanks! I know, they're so quick too, when you can't be bothered to cook anything fancy! I've recently been loving poached egg with red pepper hummus on toast - great combination!
