Think of it, it is more than an egg a day!
My family is an egg lover. We eat so many eggs that we buy 2-3 cartons per month. For breakfast I would cook at least 4 eggs for the whole family. I have not yet count lunch and dinner where I would whip up an egg dish.
If hubby is at home, he must have his usual breakfast set of bacon, hash brown, baked beans and omelette. Used to be 2 eggs for him but he has cut down to one.
The kids like to have their sandwiches for breakfast so I would fry the luncheon meat and egg for their sandwiches. Most of the times, they bring this sandwich to schools in their snack boxes.
Some days I would go for French toast as it is easy, delicious and goes well with a cup of tea.
The week when my mum-in-law was here, she introduced me to her breakfast recipe that she sells in her canteen. She called it "Roti Koboi" as she first saw it in a jeans advertisement few years ago. So from that day onwards, she experimented and cooked it in her canteen.
One morning she cooked her "Roti Koboi" for me. It turned out to be what people known as "egg-in-the-basket". She beat the egg before pour in the middle of the English bread. Feel like eating a French toast, except it is hollow in the middle!
Last week, I made my own egg in the basket breakfast. Just cut off the middle part of the bread. Once butter melt in the pan, I added my bread and let it toasts for few seconds. Flipped over and break an egg into the centre of the bread.
Let it cook for few seconds till the egg has set. Add a pinch of salt and dash of white pepper before dish it out into serving plate.
I love my egg yolk soft and runny while the egg white is not too set. I run out of cheese, otherwise I would add a slice of cheese underneath my egg. Nevertheless I enjoyed my egg in the basket.
What do you think? Does this entice anyone for an egg-y breakfast or brunch today?? What is your favourite egg breakfast? ^^
