Hurrah! It’s National Egg Week. From eggy bread to scotch eggs and everything in between. We’ve rounded up some creative egg recipes to fill your families bellies this autumn.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day you might as well make it delicious!
Indian food is a British favourite. This recipe is a unique twist on a standard scrambled egg on toast breakfast. OxNosh delivers the adult version of a kiddies favourite, packed with all those tantalising Indian flavours we love. It isn’t just for breakfast, it would also make a tasty dinner for one. Trust us, it’s worth getting out of bed for in the morning.
It’s that time of year. The mornings are getting darker, the evenings too. It’s chilly from the time we open our eyes to the time we close them. The morning routine of a bowl of cornflakes won’t warm you to the soul like something as good as this Eggy Bread and Veggie Cobbler from eggrecipes.co.uk. If you’re a bit like me, I can’t eat first thing in the morning, so this dish is perfect for my “brunch”. Packed with delicious veggies, gooey cheese and yummy eggs I look forward to this with a cup of joe whilst I sit down to work.
Lunches tend to be quite samey, samey. Same sandwiches, same soups, same cobs, same blah blah blah. Give yourself a pickup halfway through you day with this Smoked Haddock with Watercress and Poached Egg recipe. Smoked Haddock is one of my favourite fish. The delicious smoked flavour of the flakey white fish is perfect paired with this creamy watercress sauce from The Telegraph.
Autumn is the time of year where our evenings are filled with football practice, dance recitals and other after school activities. By the time we get home and are able to sit down for a meal it’s after 8pm and we’re finding anything to fill our belly. When I have more to-do’s on my list than hours in the day I like to have my “tea” during lunch time. This Kedgeree with Eggs and Tarragon featured on Oprah.com is hearty and filling. My only suggestion would be to use the tarragon sparingly, unless you really love it’s anise flavour.
According to national surveys the amount of meals eaten either in a restaurant or ordered as takeaways surge during the Autumn and Winter months. Instead of venturing out into the blistering cold winds and driving rain, why not make a fakeaway? This Moroccan Merguez Ragout featured on Food52 reminds me of a beautiful dish I was served on holiday in Morocco. Not only is it simply delicious, it also reminds me of warmer times like holiday during the dreary English winter months.
Now before you turn your nose up and walk away because….what?! Eggs on Pizza? Hear me out. Egg Florentine Pizza is a time honoured recipe in traditional Italy. Think of breakfast, runny egg yolk over crisp toast and smokey bacon. Now put that together with your grilled tomatoes and a bit of spinach. It’s the breakfast of champions! Well instead of toast this features a crisp pizza crust and is absolutely to die for. The ultimate “binner” (breakfast for dinner) recipe is this recipe from Taste.com. It’s warm, it’s comforting and it’s delicious, what more could you ask for?
If you love the feel of a crisp crust on the traditional restaurant pizza, fear not, with some of the range cookers from Smeg you get a pizza stone. Perfect for making that restaurant style pizza right in the comfort of your own home.
Now typically I do a dessert within our National Week posts, but since this is also National Cake week, I’ll be leaving the mouth watering desserts for another day.
