Enjoy eating eggs this weekend
If there’s one thing Carla and I agree on, it’s that the weekend is a time for cooking a delicious breakfast. During the week most people only have time for a piece of toast or bowl of cereal and personally, I would rather have the extra time in bed.
When the weekend rolls round it’s time to celebrate with that much needed lie in (unless you have kids, in which case forget it) and think about what you’re going to have for breakfast. Well here’s some superb recipe suggestions, so why not enjoy eating eggs this weekend?
Oh, and don’t forget, you can click the photo for an extra large mouth watering image. Mmmm yummy.
These baked eggs are a chance for you to bring some sunshine to your brunch and add some delicious flavours to your eggs. Tomatoes are a classic combination and the addition of lemon of creme fraiche really lightens this colourful meal. What’s more is you still have the pleasure of a runny yolk to dip.
If you’re looking for a simpler way to enjoy your eggs, then here’s a fool proof way to poach them. I think this has to be one of the healthiest ways to cook an egg, and also one of the quickest. There’s a few pitfalls to be had, which is why this recipe will run you through one way of making sure they turn out right.
If when you think of scrambled eggs you have visions of dry and rubbery eggs, then it’s time you changed your recipe. This will show you a way to make really lovely scrambled eggs which taste amazing with cheddar cheese.
Finally, in my opinion the ultimate way to get your weekend egg fix is to make Eggs Benedict. Don’t be put off by having to make the hollandaise sauce, it’s easy and this recipe will show you how. When you sit down and cut through the egg, ham and soft toasted English muffin you’ll be pleased you made the effort.
I think there’s still room for a few more egg recipes. We still don’t have the perfect way to boil an egg (although I have some ideas) or the ultimate Full English breakfast, or a Scottish breakfast? If you have any egg recipes you’d like to share then please submit them!
