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 omelettes, one of my favourite quick and healthy meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner its one of those versatile foods and always staple ingredients in your cupboard. You can pretty much put anything in an omelette and it’ll taste great.
This is one of my favourites:-

handful of spinach
1 mushroom sliced
Salt & pepper to taste
- Lightly oil frying pan
- Add in tomatoes, mushroom and spinach, cook for a minute
- Whisk up eggs with seasoning and pour over, cook on medium heat for about 4-5 mins or until bubbling, turn and cook for 1 min more.
- Serve. Yummy!
Here are my other favourites:-
Tomato and avocado
Ham & mushroom

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!!
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.
