No matter what you hear about eggs, good or bad, you can't deny how absolutely delicious they are. I love eggs any which way you can cook them. Hard boiled on a salad, or simply with salt and pepper, over easy with hot buttery toast dipped in on a hungover Sunday morining, in a light and airy soufle, or a crispy and chewy meringue. The world really does revolve around the egg.
I dedicate this page to eggs and all those who love it. These are just a small handful of my favourites, with many more to come. Just click on the photo for the recipes!
BAKED TORTILLA, EGG & CHORIZO PIE
I made this for breakfast and it was an instant hit. Who doesn't love chorizo and cheese? Among other things, like peppers, eggs and tortillas. Serve up for a late breakfast or brunch with a dollop of sour cream and some lightly dressed greens. Meat, eggs, home fries and the bread all in one dish...easy to make and even easier to eat.
STEAKHOUSE BENNY WITH PARSLEY HOLLANDAISE
Got a man around for breakfast? This is the best thing to whip up...he will be eating out of your hand. Make sure to season the steak well and it should ideally be cooked to medium rare.
DEVILLED QUAIL EGGS
These are the perfect little retro bites. Although you could use regular eggs, I like using quail eggs because they're one single bite...easy to make, easy to eat and you can make them a day ahead. You can season them with anything you like, but I find the curry works really well, is a bit unexpected, and the curry gives the egg yolks a really nice yellow colour.
SPICY & MEATY
Got leftover roast beef? Love eggs? This recipe will give new life, I promise. I love spicy food and this one delivers. The endorphins, the sweat of the brow, the runny nose...I love it all! A spicy dish lets you know you're alive, you are in the moment. You can't escape, or just eat for the sake of eating. Heat grabs your attention, doesn't give in and will not be ignored. Hungover? Sinus cold? Crank up the heat...it'll cure what ails ya!
CHILLI BENNY & GRAINY MUSTARD CREAM SAUCE
If you really want to impress someone with an unforgetable breakfast (or dinner), try this recipe. It's really easy and delicious, I promise. I'll give you one of my favourite chilli recipes. I really love the contrasts of the , crunchy english muffin, the soft basted egg with a runny yolk, the spicy chilli and the creamy sauce. You'll find that all the flavours and textures compliment each other really nicely.
MINT SPAGHETTI CARBONARA
Spaghetti carbonara always seemed to be a bit intimidating to me and I have no idea why...at all. This could not be any easier to make and is absolutely delicious. While some will cheat and put cream in the sauce, a true carbonara has only eggs as the sauce. I've added mint to this and it really works, but you can add any herbs, vegetables or meat that you like. Anything goes!
POTATO CROQUETTE WITH POACHED EGG, ROASTED BEETS & CHIMICHURRI
This is a really easy and satisfying starter to any meal. I love the richness of the egg, the smooth creaminess of the potato, the crunch of the batter and greens and the contrasting herbacious chimichurri cuts through it all nicely. Visually stunning and tasty to boot!
If Texans carried purses...flaky phyllo dough surrounds spicy baked beans, creamed corn and an egg with the yolk oozing out when you cut into it. Delicious! Baked beans and cream corn are so simple to make and pack a punch with flavour and the crowd pleasing wow factor.
PULLED PORK BENNY &
I absolutely love bennies!! There is something great about the combination of egg yolk, hollandaise sauce and just about anything in the world. I use a blender for the hollandaise, which I adore, because its virtually idiot-proof and easy. No need for clarified butter, whisking until your arm feels like it's going to fall off, the sauce separating...a pain in the ass and you won't be able to tell the difference.
