Everyone, what's your favourite recipe for using up lots of eggs?
Quick and easy ones please as us busy poultry people don't have the time or patience for fussy recipes.

Here's one I prepared earlier...today.

Smoked salmon and Camembert quiche.

1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry or 6 sheets filo brushed with butter.
150g packet Camembert
6 eggs
100g Smoked salmon
300ml cream
1 tablespoon chopped dill (or a squeeze of pre-prepared dill in a tube)

Line greased quiche dish with pastry
Slice Camembert thinly and place evenly into pastry case.
Dice smoked salmon finely.
Mix salmon, eggs, cream and dill.
Pour into pastry case.
Bake in a moderate oven for about 40mins or until set.
Serves 4

Enjoy!

Jacquie

Yum Jacqui...that sounds great. My favourite is pretty simple. Good old scrambled eggs. Allow two eggs for each person. Add a bit of milk and whisk with a fork. Add a teaspoon of chicken stock (two if there are more than four people), a teaspoon of dried dill. Melt some butter in a hot frypan and pour in the eggs. Move around with a spatula until just set. Serve on hot buttered toast. Delicious! My kids love this and would eat it every day.

I'm with you chickenlittle! My kids come every weekend and my daughter likes to make breakfast for everyone on a Sunday - either scrambled eggs or french toast, or her husband makes pancakes. We go through a dozen eggs in no time. (But the quiche does sound good... :) Judy

The quiche was yum :D

My son won't eat eggs unless they are well hidden, for example, in quiches or pancakes. So I'm always looking for new and interesting recipes to use up surplus eggs.

Hi Jacquie,

I'm with your son on eggs -I've never liked the undisguised flavour- If he likes pancakes try this recipe - I make it for my kids nearly every day and a bunch of kids come for their pancake breakfast befoe school every Monday:

Mix three eggs with one mashed banana (yes I do spoil my kids) or 1/2 cup appls sauce;
Add 3tbs oat bran;
Add 1 1/2 cups milk and 1 1/4 cups plain flour.
Mix well.
Add more milk if you prefer crepe.
Fry in butter on a cast iron pan. :)

I'll go anything with duck eggs in it. Duck eggs are amazing in almost anything,but with quite a unique taste AND they are great for the dogs coats (but like hen eggs only 1 a week for the dog/s)....shame they are so hard to find.
