Hi,

Here's a request - I need new and exciting (but reasonably easy) egg recipes! Here's one of my favourites to start the ball rolling!

Spaghetti Ceasar (or Eggy Spag!) Serves 2

Spagetti for two people (or any pasta)
4 eggs
2 Tablespoons Natural Yoghurt
Ground Pepper
Half a cup of strong tasting grated cheese


Cook Spaghetti till tender.

In a bowl mix eggs, yoghurt, and pepper well.

Drain cooked Spaghetti and return to saucepan and pour in egg mixture. Stir over low heat untill egg mix is lightly set and clinging to the spaghetti.

Fold through the cheese

Serve and enjoy! Sounds a bit boring, looks a bit yukky but tastes excellent!

I look foward to some great new egg recipes!

NellyG :D :D

Omlette

3 or 4 eggs
1 tablespoon of honey
a pinch of salt
a pinch of parsley and chives

crack the eggs into a bowl, add honey, salt and herbs
Whisk with a fork till everything is mixed in
heat up a fry pan
pour mixture into fry pan
flip over omlette when it looks like it is solid (ie not too runny, not too hard)

Then flip onto a plate and eat. Some people like it with BBQ sauce

Flexible Spinach Pie

4- 6 eggs
onion diced
garlic clove
pinch mixed herbs
silverbeet or spinach...depends what's in your garden :P .....steamed lightly and drained of excess moisture, cooled and then chop roughly
bit of bacon if any in fridge (or leave out if vegetarian :))
skim milk (or cream if your tummy can take it {mine can't :(} and you want to be luxurious :))
grated cheese

for added flavour you may also choose to add other vegies such as grated carrot, red and green capsicum, corn, peas whatever...be FLEXIBLE :P

you can also make your own shortcrust pastry or, buy some from supermarket, or get some filo pastry from supermarket.

if using shortcrust pastry, it is best to blind bake, unless you bought a precooked pastry case

lightly fry onions, garlic, herbs and bacon(if using) in frypan in tbs of marg/butter or olive oil. if using other vegies add them here too. when onions translucent set aside to cool slightly.

beat eggs add the milk/cream.

fold all the cooked ingredients, cheese and silver beet into the egg/milk mixture

pour into the pastry case/pie dish lined with filo pastry

bake until set....about 45 min @ 180 degree celsius. (can make look pretty with slices of tomato on top :P :P )

if can't be bothered with pastry, is also very nice if cook up some noodles like penne or shells or the like, and pour the mixture over them, stir through, then bake.

mmmmm, oh yeah, and filo pastry also makes a nice crunchy lid too! :oops: told you it was flexible :P

whatever you use as carbs, is quite yummo, hot or cold served with salad and crusty bread! ENJOY!

Great recipes! I like the sound of yours Caladenia! Yours sounds a bit unusual, Zilly! I'm not sure if OH would eat it or not! I guess the only way to find out is to try. I don't know about the BBQ Sauce though!?! I'll have to try it! I'm not to sure about the conditioner either! I've only got about 1/2" of hair so I don't actually use conditioner at the moment, so I might leave that one! Maybe someone else can report on what it's like??

Looks like I'm set up for a while, but keep them coming!

Thanks everyone. :D :D :D

ok i cant remember what its called but i know its good... it takes a bit of imagination and improvisation but always tastes good...
start with a pan and shove in some veggies... (could be any veggies but try getting some different colours to make it interesting (carrot, capcicum, zuccini, tomatoes, sweet and normal spuds, etc etc) and fry them up for a few minutes or until they atart to get soft.. beat up as many eggs as are going to cover the veggies in the pan with some cheese, fresh herbs and salt and pepper. spread out the veggies and poor the egg mixture on top.
leave to cook on a medium- low temp until egg is set.
tip the whole pan upside down onto a plate.
is very simple but effective..
if you cant understand my instructions pm me and i will cook it and write down the stages as i go.. it is a very cheap meal to make because you can put all your leftovers in it.

Egg & Bacon Pie.... its too easy.

Line a dish with puff pastry, put in the eggs (whole) - despends on the size of your dish as too how many. I always put in about 8 or so.

Sliced bits of bacon on top, salt peper, parsley... sometimes some onion if you feel like it.

THen put a top on it.. & bake for 45 mins or so until done. in a moderate oven.

Serve with salad... Is great cold the next day!

Hi,

I cooked your recipe tonight Quackers and it was great! OH enjoyed it too (!) That recipe of yours, Summer, is really excellent - I often do that one and generally add thick slices of tomato too. Yum!!

Looks like I've got heaps more egg meals coming up! It's just as well I like eggs!

Thankyou again!

Banana bran pancakes,

one small or half a large banana, mashed
two large or three small eggs
quarter cup oat bran
one and a quarter cups milk
one cup plain flour

I mix it all together in a jug with an electric mixing wand.

Cook on a buttered cast iron pan. I spread the batter around to make a thin, crepe like pancake.

My kids want pancakes almost every day so I always have a jug of mixture in the fridge ready for the "I,m hungry mum!' wail.

I am currently sitting here enjoying Kiddo's recipe. YUM!! I added some anchovies and chilli....substituted a few veg as well. Makes for a great brunch idea!!

Definately worth a go and I am sure it will get any kid eating his/her veg. :D :D

Also worth noting that the veg should all be about the same size so as to get an even cooking time...mine was ready in under 15mins.
