I feel like my love of eggs has grown enormously over the last year. I think it might have something to do with the hundreds of delicious #yolkporn photos on Instagram. Dippy eggs, poached eggs and fried eggs. Eggs accompanying marmite soldiers. Eggs tumbling off of giant crumpets. I am now obsessed. I have 2 boiled eggs as a snack at work, every day. Plus, I often have more eggs at the weekend. I’m starting to think 10+ eggs a week might be too much? It’s just such a filling, healthy snack; I struggle to find a good replacement. My egg-related birthday presents definitely confirmed my worst fears… I am a crazy egg lady!
I am always envious of other people’s yolks. How do they get the perfect poached eggs? Practice I guess. I’ve joined the poached eggs hype recently and my first two attempts were pretty rubbish; slightly overdone so the yolk was not runny enough. Is there anything more disappointing than an overcooked egg?
My forte is frittata. It’s so quick and easy to whip up (literally!); it’s my go-to midweek meal. All you have to do is chop up and fry your choice of ingredients, whip some eggs and pour it all into an oven dish to cook for 20-25 minutes. I like to use onion, garlic, chorizo, red pepper, mushrooms, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and feta. Fry everything except the feta. Chunks of feta can be scattered over the cooked ingredients, before the eggs are poured over and the oven dish popped in the oven. Feta and chorizo is a match made in heaven. They both add a salty kick to the dish.
Now my sister has bought me a Nutri-bullet, smoothies may knock eggs off the podium.
I’ll keep you posted!
