Egg in the Hole

Egg in the Hole as the name suggests a sunny side egg in a bread hole baked or cooked on stove-top. As I have mentioned in my previous posts we (me & hubby) love eggs to be part of our diet. This recipe is easy peasy & also scrumptious for a breakfast. I have used white bread in this recipe but you can make this delicious breakfast with any bread of your choice. I have shared both baked & stove-top methods here. My favorite is stove-top because of it's simplicity.
Prep Time-5mins 
Cook Time-15mins 
4Bread slices {Any kind}
1/2Cup shredder cheese
Oil or butter
Salt & pepper as needed
Baked Version 
- Pre-heat oven @350F. Spray a baking sheet with oil & keep aside. 
- Cut bread in a desired shape by using a cookie cutter of your choice. The ideal cutter would be a round one & used the same. 
- Now lay the bread slices on the baking sheet. Break open egg in one bread hole & repeat the same with rest of the eggs. 
- Egg white does skid out a little, place the baking sheet in oven right away you finished filling the holes. 
- Bake for 10mins & remove out of oven. By now eggs are set in place & now evenly sprinkle salt, pepper & cheese on them.
-Bake for another another 5mins or till the cheese is settled on bread. This will set the yolk too.
- Remove from oven. Cool it on counter top & serve it.
Stove-top Version 
- Heat a pan & add a dollop of butter to pan. 
- Place cut bread on pan & break open a egg in to the hole. Cook it for few seconds till the egg white is set. Flip bread & cook for few seconds. With this the yellow won't be runny & will be set perfectly.
- Now reverse the bread. Sprinkle salt, pepper & cheese on bread. Allow cheese to melt & it hardly takes seconds for cheese to melt as the bread is already hot enough.
- Once the cheese is melted remove bread from pan.
- Repeat the same with rest of the bread slices & eggs.
-Serve warm & enjoy the healthy breakfast.

Omelette in Mug

Omelette in Mug

Omelette in Mug - Yes, you read it right. I made an omelet in mug & it was awesome. I came across this recipe in a food site & decided on trying it. I like the traditional way of making omelet but, this way it reduces the make time & less messy too.
This omelette is made of egg whites, but you can also use a whole egg if you like. Egg whites are filled with protein & I love getting protein through food rather than powders. I avoided using oil in this dish & off course you are free to use it. If you want to use oil, grease the mugs with some oil as needed. Using a microwave simplifies & takes less time in cooking. In this dish we microwave it for just 2minutes & the omelette is ready.

- Take 2mugs & fill them up half the way. 
- Now microwave it for 1minute.  Take it out & mix the ingredients. 
- Now microwave for another 1minute.
- If you find any liquid then microwave again.
- Garnish with coriander & serve. 
- Microwaving time varies with instrument. Adjust time as needed. 
- You can add veggies if you like. 
- Always use bigger mug.

Goan Egg Drop Curry

Goa is a smallest state of India. Goa is surrounded with beautiful beaches, which make it a famous attraction world wide. I'm sharing a dish which is a typical goan style dish made of eggs & it was just awesome. I chose it because it's hard to find a meatless dish & also we (me & hubby) love egg curries.

6Red chilis 
1Tsp cumin
1Tsp coriander
1Tsp fennel 
2Tbs grated coconut
1Tsp tamarind pulp

- Now add coconut milk to pan. stir slightly to cover up the eggs. Adjust the taste if needed. 
- Cook curry on a low heat until it becomes thick. Once it's done switch off heat & garnish with coriander leaves. 
- If you feel this curry is too spicy then omit adding 1Tsp chili powder at last. 
- The color of this curry should be red & I believe the red chili's are at fault for not getting the color.
