Do you own egg-happy hens? Or maybe you bought some eggs in bulk and have many leftover – either way, eggs are delicious and packed with protein! So here are a number of ways you can cook them up.
Fried egg – Heat oil in a skillet/frying pan over medium-high heat, crack in the egg, season with salt and pepper, and fry for 2 – 3 minutes depending on how you like your yolk.
Poached egg – Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and add cracked egg. Cook for 2 minutes.
Scrambled egg – In a bowl, beat two eggs with salt and pepper. In a nonstick skillet/frying pan over medium-low heat, add the egg mixture and cook while stirring for 2 – 3 minutes.
Hard boiled eggs – Add egg to cold water in a saucepan and bring to a boil, remove it from the heat and cover for 10 minutes, then chill.
Soft boiled eggs – Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, boil egg for 6 minutes then remove from heat and chill.
But if you’re looking for a way to use up multiple eggs and make a whole delicious meal all at once, then why not try this delicious fresh omelette recipe?
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cups grated cheese
⅓ cup shredded ham
1.) In a bowl, beat egg with water and seasoning.
2.) Heat butter in a large skillet/frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour in the egg mixture – the omelette should begin to set around the edges immediately.
3.) Using a spatula, push the cooked parts of the egg to the centre of the pan so that it cooks evenly. Continue cooking gently tilting the pan to ensure even cooking.
4.) When the omelette is cooked and firm, and no egg liquid is visible, place your grated cheese and shredded ham on ONE SIDE of the omelette. Then, quickly fold your omelette in half and slide it from the plan onto a plate. Serve hot.
