Takes only few minutes to create an eye pleasing & delicious meal. Eggs are frequent ingredient used in many recipes all around the world. Check out few basic recipes for everyday, organised by occasion. Are you ready? Let’s have some fun with eggs!
1. Boiled eggs
Soft, medium OR hard, Try them with fresh salad & toasted bread. Cut bread into thin pieces & soak them in a soft yolk. Don’t forget a bit of salt, to boost the taste.
2. Fried eggs & peperoni
Probably my first ever self-made meal. Easy recipe just perfect for a quick breakfast.The old known fried eggs can be prepared with salami, ham, sausage or bacon. Small tip: if you like soft yolk, dont cover the pan with a lid. The steam in the pan will make yolk hard much faster. I love runny yolk so I can soak bread in it :)
3. Scramble eggs
Whisk eggs. Add salt & pepper. Chop the onion & fry until its gold. Add eggs. Stir thoroughly for the whole time. The final consistency it’s up to your own taste, I prefer it dry.
4. Super quick French toast
I learned this one while looking after children in London. Love it! Just make circle hole in bread. Fry on one side first. I prefer to fried it on butter instead of oil. Immediately after turning the bread on the other side, break the egg into middle of it – so yolk lands in the hole. Fry for minute or so. Turn to the other side, for minute or less (if you like soft yolk). Amazing combination of fried eggs & French toast, don’t you think? Yumm

5. Quick omelette
Similar to scramble eggs BUT without scrambling :D Whisk eggs. Add a bit of milk, salt & pepper. Heat the pan with a bit of oil or butter. Pour it into the pan & cover it with a lid, leaving on a low heat. Break the bubbles that may form. When you see that the top is starting to solidify, then invert the omelette (with the help of a large plate or the large flat lid). It’s not the real French omelette… but that’s how my mum told me to prepare it & I like it! :)
6. Proper French toast
Great option for a left over old bread. Whisk eggs with salt & pepper. Soak bread in it. Heat the pan. Fry on a medium heat. Don’t leave bread soaking in the eggs for too long. Serve savoury OR sweet. Sweet ideas: Nutella, Vanilla sugar & cinnamon. Jam.
Teflon pans are the best option for any egg recipe. There is almost no need for oil. BUT like Julia Child would say: “There is never enough butter!” So I prefer to add a bit of butter or oil on frying pan. Yeee not healthy BUT incredibly tasty!
7. Poached eggs
My first ever poached eggs! Yeey exciting :) How I was about to find out, it not the easiest recipe ever. To get it right you need perfectly fresh eggs,. There is a few ways how to get the perfect resault. I’ve followed the Jamie Oliver advice, find below. The result was amazing, heavenly soft eggs with the runny yolk. Yummy! Great combination with smoked salmon, brie & beetroot. My personal recommendation!

8. Royal omelette
Whisk eggs. Add a bit of milk, salt & pepper. Chop ham, cheese, spring onion & tomatoes into small squares. Heat the pan with a bit of oil. Pour eggs to the pan & cover it with a lid, sprinkle it with half of the cheese. Leave it on a low heat for a minute or so. Break the bubbles that may form. When you see that the top is starting to solidify add ham, spring onion & tomatoes on one side of the omelette. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese, Fold omelette in half, creating stuffed envelope. Leave it for a minute or so. What a feast! Great with some fresh vegetable or salad.
9. Devilled Eggs (Stuffed Eggs)
Easy peasy party starter. Boil the eggs – preferably hard. Peel the eggs (see easy tricks how nicely peel a boiled egg). Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks to a medium bowl, and placing the whites on a serving platter. Mash the yolks into a fine crumble using a fork. Salmon stuffing: Add smoked salmon, soft cheese, dill, salt & pepper. Pâté stuffing: Add pâté, mayonnaise, dill, salt & pepper. Mix it well. Evenly disperse heaping teaspoons of the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Use olives & chopped dill to decorate.
10. Egg spread
Boil the eggs – medium or hard. Peel one small tooth of garlic. Cut or crush. Mix with peeled eggs, soft cheese, 2 spoons of mayo, a bit of butter & dill or chive.

Well I hope I made you hungry enough to run to the kitchen & make some EGGs :) Like mentioned before I’m a huge egg lover & my weakness is definitely a yolk. Soaking bread into a nice soft yolk, that’s just heaven. I tend to leave yolk & eat it at the end, let it dissolve in your mouth, an ultimate orgasm to your tongue & taste buds! Pleasure guaranteed! :p
Now I realise I forgot Eggs Benedict! Oh dear….well next time :)
