Eggs… they’re so cheap and versatile. They are the perfect ingredient for a quick and nutritious meal at any time of the day. I’m sharing two of my favourite ways to cook them with you. Both recipes are designed for breakfast, but can just as easily be served as a light lunch or dinner.
The Ultimate Scrambled Eggs
This recipe guarantees you fluffy, creamy and delicious scrambled eggs every time. And it only takes five minutes! Serves 2.
5 free range medium eggs.
Simplee salt free seasoning. (about 40-50 twists)
2 tablespoons cream
Simplee Pepper (5 or 6 twists)
4 slices of bread for toast
1 tablespoon of chopped herbs like parsley, oragano or chives. (optional)
Your favourite Simplee salt.
Pop bread in toaster and place a non-stick frying pan on the hob. Put the hob on almost its highest setting.
Break all the eggs in a bowl along with the cream, butter, salt free seasoning, pepper and herbs. Do not add salt now as it can make eggs tough.
Beat the ingredients with a fork until bubbles are forming on the mix.
Pour into the hot pan and stir continuously with a non-stick spatula. Keep the mixture moving on the pan until you can see that its almost cooked. When there is only a tiny bit of runny mixture left, take the pan off the heat and allow to rest while you butter the toast. Serve at the table and season with your favourite Simplee salt (I love the sweet & smoky best).
This is a very hearty traditional Mexican breakfast served all over Mexico and the southern states in America. It makes a lovely lunch or light dinner. There are hundreds of ways to cook this dish but this one is my favourite. Serves 2.
2 free range eggs
1 finely chopped large tomato
1 finely chopped small onion
half a finely chopped chilli (use seeds for extra heat)
half teaspoon cumin
chedder cheese to grate on top
chopped coriander to garnish (optional)
2 corn tortillas
Simplee chilli salt and garlic pepper
Heat a non stick pan with a little oil.
Sweat onions for 2 minutes. Add tomato, chilli, cumin, salt and pepper. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from pan and keep warm.
Clean out the pan and heat again. Fry the eggs sunny side up …..for a great way to do this with videos, check out this link http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Sunny-Side-up-Eggs
When the eggs are done, microwave the tortillas for 20 seconds each.
To serve, place the salsa on the tortilla, place the egg on top, garnish with grated cheese, lettuce, coriander and a twist of Simplee chilli salt and pepper.
