Youngest is a big fan of scrambled eggs or "scrambly eggs" as she calls them. The other day she begged me for scrambly eggs all day for tea and I agreed to honour her request. As we got to tea time and I began to make her eggs, I suddenly realised that I had no milk and so I couldn't make her the eggs as she likes. Therefore, I had to improvise.
Instead of her usual scrambly eggs, I came up with a cross between scrambled eggs and an omlette. Hardly ground breaking or rocket science, but sometimes us Mum's have to think on our feet to get tea on the table asap and I always like to blog about everything I cook, no matter how mundane or revoluntionary it is. Grabbing what I had from the fridge, I decided to mix some veg and cheese with the eggs and see whether youngest would eat it. I knew that she would not eat an omelette like substance, so I had to keep her eggs scrambly.
The result, although not overly aesthetically appealing, was a resounding success - scrambly eggs, with veg and cheese, which youngest ate with some buttered toast. This is a great light lunch or tea, or a good breakfast too.
Here's what I did:
1 Egg, whisked
1 tbsp Cheese
1/4 of a red chopped Pepper
1/4 of an Onion - chopped
Butter for cooking
- Shallow fry the pepper and onion in some heated butter and allow to cook for around five minutes over a medium heat until the veg has begun to soften.
- Add the whisked egg and cheese to the mix and stir until the egg has cooked thoroughly.
- Serve immediately with some bread or toast and lashings of ketchup!
