scrambled eggs for lunch

Chef_rainrain1, Feb 24, 6:51 am

I take it you mean baked goods that are suitable for morning or afternoon tea, rather than main courses. This is very versatile.

Bacon and Egg Slab

4 - 5 servings
150g chopped bacon, fried until fat runs
100g chopped mushrooms
200g cooked spinach, chopped and well drained
60g parmesan or tasty cheddar, grated
10 eggs
Pepper
Salt

120g thinly sliced tomato


Line a cake tin or baking dish with non stick paper, then spread over bacon and mushrooms (this also helps to hold the sides of the paper out).
Put the eggs into a bowl and mix to combine yolks and whites, then add salt and pepper, spinach and cheese.
Mix well, then pour over bacon and mushrooms.
Spread out, arrange sliced tomato on top
Bake 180g in pre-heated oven until just set.

This reheats well and is nice cold

Variations

Ham and asparagus with gruyere or blue cheese

Hot-smoked salmon, feta and spinach with a little mint or oregano

Leek & Potato Frittata
1 leek
2 Large Potatoes
1T Olive oil
4 Rashers Bacon
8 Eggs
Salt & Pepper

Cut the leeks in half - wash them and slice them (about 5mm slices)
Cube the 2 potato's into 1cm cubes
Slice the bacon.
Gently fry all of the above in the 1T olive oil until potatoes almost cooked

I transferred the above mx into my square silicone baker. Beat up the eggs with some salt and pepper - poured over the mix. Sprinkled with some grated cheese (and I also added some pumpkin, sunflower & sesame seeds - you could miss these out but I had some in the pantry and they give the top a lovely flavour - And make it look like "café" food)

It was delicious - even meat & 3 veg hubby liked it.

I've got a dozen quail eggs to do something with. Any suggestions other than hard-boiling them?

Chef_bedazzledjewels, Apr 7, 8:17 am

Eggs freeze quite well. break into patty pans and freeze individually. once frozen. bag up. Will keep well for about 3 months. Defrost and use as normal

Chef_jag5, Apr 7, 9:11 am


I have 4 chickens scratching around my garden and they are oblivious to the Leek and Potato bake (incl 8 eggs) that I have just made.

Chef_toadfish, Apr 7, 9:29 am

Chef_toadfish, Apr 7, 9:31 am



Fry them whole in olive oil, add to a little composed salad of soft herbs and young lettuce (some fried pancetta would be good here, or some smoked salmon). Don't boil them as they are almost impossible to shell cleanly.

Chef_davidt4, Apr 7, 9:33 am

Delicious! Thanks for your ideas everyone.

Chef_bedazzledjewels, Apr 7, 9:37 am

too good to lose

Chef_bev00, Apr 7, 10:04 pm

Whisk 8 eggs, add chopped tomato, chopped bacon, garlic chives, parsley, a tsp Colemans mustard and cracked black pepper. Grate a little parmesan on top then ladle into large greased muffin pans and bake at 180C for around 25 - 30 mins. Yum! That was brunch this morning served on mesclun with a dollop of chutney and caramelised onions, and the rest have been refrigerated for lunch/snacks for Tuesday.

Chef_mazzy1, Apr 7, 10:21 pm

Well I just made my son & his mates a large bacon & egg pie for the weekend [it being Ducking Shooting!] that used up a dozen eggs! I like to see them eating plenty!

Chef_macandrosie, May 4, 9:21 pm

I use nigella lawsons recipe. I makes a large one one. I use a 34 x 23 cm tin.

375g good quality dark choc
375g unsalted butter. (if using salted butter, leave the salt out)

Melt them together in a pot on slow heat. Then cool.

6 eggs
350g castor sugar
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 tsp salt

Beat together then add the choc mixture and combine till well mixed.

225g plain flour
250g white choc chips

Add flour and mix in then fold in choc chips.

Make sure your tin in lined then pour in. bake at 150c (reduce by 10 deg if fan forced) and bake for an hour. when cooked mixture should still be gooey but not wobble in the middle when you shake the tin.

Onion and Herb Frittata
3 TBLSP olive oil
2 onions thinly sliced
8 eggs
1 tsp salt
ground black pepper to taste
4 medium potatoes peeled and boiled in salted water for 5 minutes
2 TBLSP finely chopped parsley leaves
Heat 2 TBLSP of the olive oil in a large frypan, add onions and cook over gentle heat until softened but not browned (about 8 min). In large bowl whisk eggs with salt and pepper, cut cooled potatoes into 1/2 cm thin slices and stir into the egg with onions and parsley, make sure all the potato slices are separated and coated with egg.
Heat remaining oil in frypan used for onions, add egg mixture, as the base begins to cook, use spatula to lift it in several places allowing raw egg to run underneath. Once it starts to set, leave it to cook over a very low heat until just set through (about 12 mins). Don't be tempted to turn up the heat. Place under a preheated grill until the top is set and golden (about 5 - 6 mins) or run a knife around the edge to loosen, flip onto a plate then slide back into the pan to cook through, test by gently pressing the centre - if it bounces back it is done. Cool 5 min. before turning out onto a plate, eat hot or at room temperature.

frozen egg whites make great pavs and the yolks could be used to make custards or curds, for no wastage.

Annabel's FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE.

250g best quality dark chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp brandy
2 tbsp black coffee
200g butter chopped
1 cup castor sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups ground almonds
6 eggs separated
Preheat oven to 170. LIne the base and sides of 23cm diameter springform cake tin with baking paper.

Combine choclate brandy and coffee in a large bowl over a pot of boiling water, stirring as the chocolate melts. Add butter, sugar and vanilla and stir until the butter has melted. Remove from heat and stir in ground almonds. Lightly beat egg yolks and stir into the chocolate mixture.

Place egg whites in a large, clean bowl and beat to firm peaks. Stir in a spoonful of beaten egg white into the chocolate mixture to loosen it, then fold in the rest of the egg whites.

Spoon into prepared tin and bake until risen and set (about 55 minutes) The cake will still be a little gooey in the middle. It may look a little cracked as it develops a crust and can be quite fragile, but htis is normal.

Cool completely in tin.

My pickled eggs turned out a treat! Pickled them in beet root juice and cider vinegar and they look fab too when cut. I used a dozen to make them.
