Regular readers of my blog will know I like to mix things up a bit so today’s post is one for all the foodies out there.
One of the staple products in our diet are eggs and rightly so because not only are they full of nutrients and protein but they are also versatile so you can create a whole host of different meals and treats with them. Here are some light bites using eggs I sometimes eat for my lunch which are quick and easy!
Scrambled Eggs on Toast With Smoked Salmon
I love creamy scrambled eggs made in the microwave with milk, butter and seasoning. It’s such an easy meal to put together yet is filling and can be combined with extra’s such as smoked salmon to make it even more tasty.
Poached Eggs on Toast
I often have poached eggs on toast drizzled in ketchup as it’s a filling yet healthy meal. I love when the yolk of the egg oozes over the crispy toast.. yum!
I love omlette because you throw almost any ingredients into them and create a completely different result each time. Some of my favourite’s include, cheese, ham and mushroom, plain and Spanish omlette’s. The latter are particularly nice cold too so you can make a large one and eat it over a couple of days if you’re and about and in need of a speedy lunch.
Soft Boiled Egg with Bacon and Soldiers
Eggs with soldiers take me back to my childhood as my dad used to often cook this for me with the added extra of bacon occasionally. It makes a nice twist to a delicious classic and there’s something very satisfying about dipping your toast in a golden, runny yolk.
This meal takes a few more ingredients than the others but it’s richer and more luxurious. I only have eggs benedict on the rare occasion but when I do I really enjoy it.
Fried Egg Sandwich
Okay, this one isn’t the healthiest option but it sure is tasty! A fried egg sandwich is a simple treat that uses minimum ingredients and when combined with brown and red sauce (yes, I know it’s weird I like both) it’s even better!
Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich
If you fancy a sandwich for lunch but something which isn’t hot so can be transported then maybe an egg mayonnaise is up your street. You simply boil eggs and crush them with seasoning and mayonnaise to create a tasty filling for your bread of choice!
A super healthy option for lunch which is full of protein is a nicoise salad. Traditionally this includes hard boiled eggs, tuna, plum tomatoes, new potato’s and salad leaves or lettuce but of course you can mix this up with other ingredients too. This is a particular favourite of mine in the Summer as it’s light and fresh.
A Croque Madame is a meal I only discovered this Summer and is a twist on the Croque Monsieur which to put it simply is a cheese and ham toastie. The exciting twist with a Croque Madame, however, is that it has a fried egg on top!
