Here is my little twist on fried eggs. And it is egg-cellent! Ridiculously tasty!
Have those for breakfast, brunch or light supper for 2.
Fried aubergine and egg toast
brown bread, 2 slices, toasted
aubergine, 4 thick ish slices
2 large eggs
1 tsp capers
2 handfuls of green salad leaves of your choice
2-4 tbsp lemon infused rapeseed oil
black pepper, freshly ground
Heat lemon infused oil in a medium sized frying pan. Fry aubergine slices for 2-3 minutes on one side than flip over and fry for further 2-3 minutes, till lightly browned. Set aside on a warm plate.
Crack eggs into a pan and fry, 2-3 minutes, until whites are set. Season with salt and pepper. If you like your eggs over-easy, flip them partway through cooking once the bottom has set.
And now time for a crafty arrangement!
Place salad leaves on the toasted bread, then warm aubergine (2 on each slice of bread) and fried egg. Scatter capers and voila!
All ready to …indulge!
Here is my breakfast idea. Something different and might be just a thing for an Easter breakfast or brunch. Hope you all will enjoy it!
Baked buns with egg and Bavarian frankfurters.
2 fresh burger buns or white crusty bread rolls
2 medium eggs
1-2 frankfurters, diced into bite-size chunks, Unearthed Bavarian Frankfurters are delicious
2 thin slices cheddar cheese
1/2 small red onion, thinly chopped
chive, for sprinkling
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp oil
optional: chopped mushroom, pancetta or few baby spinach leaves
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Cut off the tops of the buns and scoop out the insides. Well it might seem like a waste so why not to dry them for a breadcrumbs.
In a small frying pan heat the butter. Add frankfurters and onions and fry for 3 minutes.
Place the buns in a lightly oiled baking tray. Arrange all ingredients starting with slice of cheese, then onions and frankfurters and tiny bit of chive. Crack an egg into each and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, then place under the hot grill for 2-3 minutes until the whites are set and yolks are done to your liking. Pierce the white to ensure that it is done. If required put back under the grill for another 1-2 minutes but keep grill door slightly open to ensure that the buns won’t get burned.
