This is becoming massive over social media, so I decided to give it a go with my own little twist. My curiosity was getting the better of me. I have to say it did just taste like egg , the texture was strange but very pleasant.
2 eggs – separate white from yolk
pinch salt & pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
- Preheat oven to 230 deg and line a baking tray with non stick paper
- Whisk up the egg whites only (separately), with the salt, pepper and chives until stiff
- Spoon out the whites onto the baking paper and make a circle shape, flatten the middle to make a slight well.
- Sprinkle the paprika onto the egg whites
- Bake in the oven for approx 3-4 mins
- Remove from oven then gently put the egg yolk in the middle and sprinkle with chilli flakes.
- Bake for a further 2-3 mins
I just love eggs and toast on a Saturday morning but wanted to jazz it up a bit today, so here is my eggs in toast with some spicy avocado bites.
2 Slices of Wholemeal toast (you can of course use white if you prefer)
1/2 avocado – mashed
tsp of chilli flakes
knob of butter
1. Heat butter in a pan
2. Using a cutter take out the centre of the bread slices
3. Place bread slices into the pan and crack the eggs in the centre. Also put the circle bites into the pan.
4. Cook for about 1-2 mins, then flip over and cook for a further 1-2 mins (depending if you want yolk running or not)
5. Meanwhile, mash up the avocado and sprinkle with chilli flakes.
6. Remove the toasts from pan and place on a plate. Take the 2 round pieces and place the cutter you used to cut over then spoon in the avocado mix, remove cutter and place on plate. Sprinkle with rainbow pepper to taste. Yummy!
I’ve seen posts about Baked French Toast and always wondered how it tastes, so today was that day that I would give it a go. I normally fry my eggy bread so I was intrigued. It tasted amazing with the Maple Syrup and a great Sunday Brunch recipe.
6 slices of thick white bread (it has to be white, I’ve tried wholemeal in the past and it just doesn’t work)
1 cup Milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp sugar (brown or white, your choice)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp butter – melted
Maple Syrup to serve
- Preheat oven to 180 deg
- Cut bread into long slices. Mix sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
- Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla
- Soak the bread in the egg mixture and let excess drip off
- Place some greaseproof or parchment paper on a baking tray and lay the bread strips on top, leaving a small space in between
- Using the melted butter, brush the tops of the slices then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon
- Bake in oven for 15 minutes
- Remove and turn over the slices, repeat with the butter and sugar and bake for a further 15 mins.
- Allow to cool slightly, plate up and drizzle with Maple Syrup…..Yummy!!
With some puff pastry left in the fridge and looking for a tasty Sunday brunch thought I’d have a go at a puff pastry tart. Such a simple and easy yet tasty delight. The fillings are endless too, I now have so many ideas going on in my head for next time…….goats cheese being one of my favourites.
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 egg whisked for the wash
2 egg yolks
handful cherry tomatoes – halved
handful of spinach
salt & pepper to taste
- Firstly cut your pastry into a square, about 5″ x 5″, using a sharp knife draw a square around the pastry about 1 cm in, be careful not to cut right through.
- Brush the pastry with the egg wash.
- Place the spinach in the square then the cherry tomatoes around the edge.
- Place into a preheated oven at 190 deg for approx 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, pour the remaining egg wash into the centre and then place the egg yolks in the middle, put back in oven and continue to cook for approx 10-15mins.
- Remove and serve……Yum!
A great way to start your day, or a fab brunch recipe. Nice and healthy and full of superfoods, what could be better?
Handful of Spinach
Handful of smoked pancetta cubes
2 tbsp of sweetcorn
1/2 avocado – chopped
Grated cheese – Handful
Salt & pepper to taste
- Grease your muffin tin and preheat oven to 180 deg.
- Roughly fry your pancetta cubes in a little oil and pat dry
- Lay the spinach leaves at the bottom of your muffin tin
- Then add in the pancetta, avocado and sweetcorn
- Whisk the eggs and season with salt & pepper
- Pour into the muffin tin then top with some cheese and chopped spinach.
- Bake for approx 20 mins. Yummy!
Always seen this but never tried it, really don;t know why as I love every ingredient that’s involved. This recipe was inspired by J.O., after watching him on TV I decided to give it a go and I have to say it was absolutely delicious. It is normally classed as a breakfast item however we decided to have it for dinner, yummy and so tasty and filling.
Makes enough for 2
2 x Smoked Haddock pieces
2 x eggs
2 x Bay Leaves

Handful coriander – chopped
150ml natural yoghurt
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 packet of pre cooked wholemeal rice (used this for quickness)

O.K…..so I’ve seen various versions of these, mostly on healthy eating or fitness sites, always admiring but never made…….so, having some off bananas left I decided to give it a go.
They say on most sites 2 Ingredient pancake…..wasn’t sure about this, gave it a go and wasn’t impressed. Why? I hear you ask……..just using mashed up banana and eggs it left the pancake very soft and very hard to flip without looking like a scramble pancake. Here was my first try, they never kept their shape:-
I am a determined person and was not going to let it beat me……so here is my successful recipe combination:-
Makes 10 pancakes
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp plain flour
4 crushed up walnuts
1 tsp vanilla essence
- Firstly mashed up the bananas in a bowl, add in the crushed walnuts, baking powder (this helps them go a little bit fluffier), vanilla essence and mix.
- Whisk the eggs together then add to the mixture, mixing together.
- Once combined add in the flour and mix well, it should look like a pancake batter.
- Heat a large pan to a medium heat and drop 2 tbsp’s of the mixture in, using the back of the spoon even out. Cook for about 2 mins each side or until golden brown.
- Plate up and serve.
I served with some Maple Syrup. You can add any ingredient you like to the mixture and serve it with anything of your choice. Yum healthy pancakes.
