Eggs is what my daughter and I love for breakfast. There are so many different ways you can have them. It keeps you full longer and is a good source of protein. Here are a few interesting ways you can make eggs and twist your regular breakfast menu. Because as they say, breakfast is sure the most important meal of the day and should not be missed. Here I am giving you three ways to look forward to your next egg breakfast.

Poached Eggs:

Poached eggs are prepared by poaching eggs in simmering liquid. Its such a pleasure to see the flowing yellow yolk when you cut into your egg. Here is how to make it.

Take a deep saucepan. Not too big. Fill it half with water. Add some vinegar and salt and bring to boil. Mean while break an egg in a small bowl. Once the water starts to simmer, take a spoon and create a whirlpool in the water and slide the egg right in. Bring down the heat to low and let the egg sit in there for about  5 mins. That’s it. Take it out on a paper towel to soak the moisture and then transfer onto a toast or eat it just like that. Enjoy.

If you would like to have this poached egg with flavored yogurt, use 1/2 cup of thick yogurt and add one minced clove of garlic. Pour it over the poached egg. Melt some butter in a pan and add paprika to it. Let it sizzle for a few mins and then add it over the poached egg. Garnish with mint leaves or your choice of herbs. Enjoy.

Egg in Potato Nest:

Take one small potato and grate it.  Put the strings in a kitchen towel and squeeze out all the water. Heat oil in a pan, put these potatoes in it trying to make your best round shape with them. Make a hole in between. Season your potatoes. Once cooked, flip them over. Break an egg in between the hole and cook for another 3 mins till both potatoes and egg is cooked. Season the egg with salt and pepper. That’s it. Done.

Egg in a Bread Hole:

This one is the easiest. Take a slice of bread and cut a hole from the center.  Heat some butter in a pan and toast the bread till crispy on one side. Then flip over the bread and break an egg into the bread hole. Let the egg cook for about 3 minutes. Season it with salt and pepper and serve.

Another way to enjoy this bread would be to flip it over again on the other side and let it cook for just about a minute. That will seal the yellow yolk inside. Its such a pleasure to bite into that crispy bread, with a firm white and runny yellow yolk. Trust me, you have to make this easy egg delight to know what I am talking about.

A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food groups on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. So thanks to all my family and friends who constantly motivated me to work on a blog, here it is. So come, join me on this delightful journey, where I promise to serve you Love daily, well almost.
