Do you have eggs?

Philippines
April 5, 2007 4:12am CST
Do you have eggs? I think "almost" everyone have eggs in their refrigerators. And children love eggs. I don't know why. I'm not that fond of eggs really but my daughter loves them. But I have grown tired of fried eggs, boiled eggs, egg sandwich and omelettes. Especially if you have to eat the left overs of your child. Not anymore that appetizing. (^^,lol^^,) And maybe parents would relate to me when it seems like you don't know anymore what to do with eggs. While I was flipping my "Working mom" magazine. I came across four interesting recipes. And I would like to share at least two recipes for all parents or friends who wants some new recipe for eggs. Maybe some already read about it, but I still want to share them. Here is the first recipe "Breakfast Casserole": Serving for 8, Preparation time: 20 mins, Cooking time: 10 mins. Ingredients: 16 slices small loaf bread, 1/4 cup butter, 1 piece medium onion (minced), 2 pieces medium tomatoes (minced), 1 cup vienna sausage or any sausage of your choice (sliced diagonally), 1 chicken broth cube (crushed), 8 pieces eggs (beaten), 1 378-ml can evap milk or any milk of your choice, cheddar or quick melt cheese (grated), spring onions (choppped) Procedure: 1. Arrange bread slices in a 13 X 9-inch ovenproof dish. Set aside. 2. Melt butter, saute onions, tomatoes and sausages. Add chicken broth cube. Spread 1/2 of mixture evenly on top of sliced bread. Set aside other half. 3. Combine beaten eggs and evap milk in a bowl. Pour over bread-sausage mixture and top with the remaining half of the mixture, grated cheese and spring onions. 4. Bake for about 10 mins at 350F. The second recipe as more of a Filipno style flavor: "Egg Caldereta" Serving for 8, Preparation time: 10 mins., Cooking time: 20 mins. Ingredients: 8 pieces hard-cooked eggs, 2 tablespoons garlic(chopped), 2 tablespoons onions (chopped), 1 can tomato sauce, 1 beef or chicken broth cube (at your choice), 1 cup pineapple juice, 2 cups potatoes (cubed), 1/2 cup red bell pepper (diced), 1/4 cup green peas, 1 85gram can liver spread, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Procedure: 1. Remove shells of eggs and slice in half, lengthwise, then set aside. 2. heat oil, saute garlic and onion until limp. Add tomato sauce and pineaple juice. Bring to boil. 3. Add potatoes and simmer for five minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. 4. Gently stir in sliced eggs, bell peppers and green peas. Simmer for another three minutes and add liver spread to thicken the mixture. Season with salt to taste and cook for two minutes more. Serve hot. You can also add sugar or spices depending on your taste. I hope you'll try it. My daughter loved it and her favorite egg had become more nutritious. And I'm happy to have tried something else with eggs. What do you think? Hope you'll like these recipes and give me news if you have other innovative way to cook eggs. I would really appreciate it. Happy cooking! and Happy eating! (^^,) Source: "Working mom"

i love to eat the eggs and almost all the time i will have them in my stock. I cook eggs in several different ways and taste. I most of the times add the egg together with the other stuff. With this was, my food not only tasty but healthy too. For my chinese style stir fry i will add the beaten eggs inside my pan/wok to makes them taste nice. Same also goes to my soup. But the most egg dish which i love is the omelette's with dried shrimp paste and chili. This is really hot and i love them. I even can eat them only with the plain rice.

I do not have any eggs in my refrigerator but probably will get some this weekend. I had some before I went away on vacation but have not had the chance to go shopping since I came home. I do love eating eggs, although they are high in cholesterol so I try not to eat them too often. Those recipes sound very nice though and may have to try them. Thank you for sharing the recipes.

I got it from a local magazine, don't thank me. And it is my pleasure to share it to egg lovers. And Filipinos are very innovative in cooking. They have more ways to cook eggs. Maybe I'll post another recipe some other day. Enjoy your cooking! (^^,)

Yeah there's usually eggs in the fridge. Never quite remember buying them but there always seems to be a carton of them there. What annoys me is people who make eggs right, and put the empty shells back in the carton and stick it back in the fridge. I just can't understand that.

Yah, pretty annoying, I must admit. And when they dried up they sticked to the carton, more annoying. My brothers used to be like that, but now you can find the shells all over the counter and the oven. Hay! (^^,LOL)

I like to have eggs in the fridge all the time as I think they are very versatile, I don't eat them a lot though, but as a family meal they are ideal. Thanks for the recipe it looks real good will give it a go. I was a sickly kid and my grandmother always gave me 'egg flips' to build up my iron, today they are just like a milk shake with an egg and vanilla.

So egg flips are milk, raw egg and vanilla, mixed all together or just break the egg in milk? That sounds very nutritious. How many times do you drink it especially for children? For adults? (^^,) And by the way thank you for sharing too! (^^,)

Yeah, eggs are are great dish. The best bit is; as you cook it; you can improvise as you go along. Adding a bit off cheese always makes it great; with lots of salt; which you then need to work-off later in the day. The egg never seems to taste plain for me; there are so many things to do with it to make it have a different awesome taste each time! You can add some things that are nutritious and sort of disguise it in your egg cooking. Eggs are great also for adding with steak in a nice sandwhich for you lunch or a nutrition, but quick and easy dinner. Well, keep on adoring your eggs people!

I might have to look in to trying those recipes :) Thanks for adding them! My partner currently works in a poultry farm so we always have a lot of egs in the house! My daughter is just happy to have them scrampled but in big enough pieced that she can grab them & shove them in her mouth! My partner has made my daughter French Toast too which she seemed to like quite a lot. You just add an egg to a bowl & some milk then mix it together - dip some bread in the egg/milk mix & throw them in to a warm-hot fry pan - once brown, flip until the other side is brown, then i would just cut them in to strips/soldiers & she would happily sit there & eat them. I guess it's a healthy meal as well as a tasty one so maybe you could try that for breakfast one morning & see how your daughter likes that!

Thanks for the recipes. I think eggs are really a staple in my kitchen, so many things I make contain one or two of them. They are something I make sure I buy at the grocery every week, and since they are one of the cheaper things to buy they help with the budget. My son doesn't like just straight cooked eggs though, so I always have to put them in something. Thanks again!

I used to like half-boiled eggs. "Soak" the egg in hot water for 8 minutes. Eat with dark soy sauce and a dash of salt or pepper. Just sharing some ways I have eaten eggs. 1) Mashed the hard-boiled egg with margarine and cheese and peanut butter. Use it as a bread spread 2) Roll bread with fillings and then dipped bread with egg and pan-fried or deep fried it.
