I have to say that redjohanna's Lemon Delicious receipe is a great hit at our home too! I have also changed it up a little making a pineapple one and a passionfruit one, they both turned out as scrummy as the lemon variety! :D

I made my first Lemon Delicious from my "Grub" cookbook the other day - it was probably the yummiest thing I have ever eaten. Hubs and I were racing to clean the dish at the end - like people who hadn't eaten for weeks :lol:

My chooks have only just started laying in quantity again so Spanish Omelette tonight I think. Any more egg recipes to add?

Not a recipe so much as a concept.


We were having meatless Monday yesterday.

I cut up half a capsicum, half a cauliflower, a head of broccoli and a zucchini. I put the zucchini in the micro to half cook and while that was happening I tossed all the cut up veg in a casserole. Poured a mixture of 3 eggs with a good dollop of sour cream beaten in. Then the zucchini went on top followed by a handful of whatever grated cheese was around and some breadcrumbs and tossed it in the oven at 180 for about 20 minutes.



Turned out surprisingly good. The veggies were mostly still a bit crunchy and fresh and Mr Darker seemed to really like it (maybe the good dollop was more of a generous one) but for a Monday night when the veggie man comes on Tuesday it was a good healthy edible meal that everyone ate...and will probably never be the same again due to the random nature of it.

I have this one in the oven right now and uses 8 whole eggs.

Tuna and broccoli bread bake: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/22098/t ... bread+bake

Says serves 4 but looking at it, it would serve 6 I think (if served with a side salad).

This thread is great! my fridge is being taken over by eggs at the moment, even after I've been giving some away.

Here's a fudge brownie recipe that I make:

1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
250g cooking chocolate
200g butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs (I used 3 duck eggs, sometimes 2 if they're really big)
250g chocolate bits (I use a mix of white and dark or milk choc or you could add chopped nuts as well)

Melt cooking choc and butter on low heat.
Remove from heat to cool slightly and stir in sugar and eggs one at a time (bits of egg will start to cook if the mixture is too hot so make sure it's cooled a bit)
Add in sifted flour, cocoa powder and vanilla essence.
Stir in chocolate bits.
Line a baking tray(32x22cm, or a bit smaller is ok) with baking paper and cook at 180C for 50-60mins(conventional) or until skewer comes out clean.

They are very moist and dense, and very moreish!

I would love to be over-run with eggs: I suspect someone has stolen our eggs today. Will put a padlock on the gate and tomorrow, there are sure to be lots of eggs again!

This happens every now and again. It drives me crazy that I would have to padlock their run. The problem of city living ... :x

Oh how annoying! Maybe you should put a sign on their run saying "if you would like some eggs, that's fine, but please just ask" and maybe put a price on it, at least they'll know that you know they're taking them and might think twice or be too embarrassed to do it again. Or you could bait them with off eggs in place of the fresh ones :wink:

I suspect the crows get mine sometimes when they lay out in the open, i've found several cracked open on the ground (much to my dog's delight).

Keep the recipes coming! I've got 56 eggs to use :aaargh: and I haven't even collected today's lot.

I have enjoyed reading this thread; lots of great recipes. I had a go at Joanna's recipe but overcooked it, (OH (I'll blame him) was in the shower & I didn't want to take any more water away from him so put less than 1cm of water in the water bath), so it didn't have any sauce. I'll do it again soon as it is one of my all time favourite desserts. Thanks to those who have included recipes here.

'tis the time for many eggs at our place again so i am going to re-read this thread and would love any new or old ideas / links that are not mentioned here to assist in getting our numbers down.

our dogs have had scrambled eggs twice this week.
scrambled so they didn't know it was egg.
bloke even put a sprinkle of cheese on it and i thought it was for us. :-(

I made a deep dish frittata the other day for dinner - was really yummy and filling , and enough to cut up and take for lunch at work the following day

12 eggs beaten
1/2 cup of pure cream mixed into the beaten eggs

1 onion , some mushrooms sliced , 1 red capsicum ,6 rashers of bacon - all fried in a pan till soft
bunch of silverbeet chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
another tomato sliced (for the top)
herbs and spices (i used oregano, basil, thyme and chilies )
grated cheese (for the top)

Mix all the chopped and fried ingredients together , place in a deep baking dish , pour egg/cream mix over, give the pan a bit of a shuffle to help settle everything in, decorate with tomato slices and top with grated cheese.
Bake at 180 degrees for about 25 -30mins (i left mine in a bit long)
Serve with mixed salad.
