    Instructions

    1. Preheat your oven to 190°C.
    2. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. The bacon should still be bendable, and not too crispy when it’s done. Put the cooked bacon on a paper towel-lined plate for the grease to drain.
    3. Beat the Eggbert eggs in a large bowl. Add the cheese, sour cream, minced jalapeno, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk the mixture until all the ingredients are well-combined.
    4. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Line each muffin well with a slice of bacon. Pour the Eggbert egg mixture into each well until it is about 2/3 full.
    5. Bake them for 18 to 20 minutes or until the eggs look dry. Let them cool for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove them from the pan.

      Egg and Cauliflower Cheese Fritters

       

      Ingredients

      • 1 small or ½ large head cauliflower (about 3 cups)
      • 2 Eggbert eggs
      • 1 cup self-raising flour
      • ¼ tsp baking powder
      • Salt and pepper, to taste
      • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
      • 1 cup milk

         

        View Recipe

        Instructions

        1. Remove the leaves and stem from your cauliflower and cut into roughly 1cm square pieces. A mix of small and large pieces is fine, some will end up as crumbs just make sure the stem parts are not too big so they cook through.
        2. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl except for the milk, then gradually add the milk until you end up with batter about the thickness of pancake mix evenly coating all the cauliflower. You might not need all the milk.
        3. In a large frypan over medium heat add about 1cm of neutral oil and heat for a few minutes. Working in batches, drop the batter into palm-sized rounds and cook til about ¾ done before flipping. It should take about 2-3 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the next, and end up golden and crispy. Drain in a sieve placed over a bowl or on some paper towel.
        4. Repeat until all fritters are cooked, adjusting the flame for temperature as you go if it gets too hot or if they take too long.

                    View Recipe

                    Instructions

                    1. STEP 1

                      Crack the egg (for fluffier waffles, use only the yolk at this stage) into a large bowl, then tip in the flour and a generous pinch of salt. Add the sugar, if using, then gradually whisk in the milk followed by the melted butter until smooth. Whisk in the vanilla, if using. If you’ve chosen to make fluffier waffles, whisk the egg white to soft peaks, then gently fold this into the batter. Alternatively, make the batter by blitzing all the ingredients together using a blender or hand blender. Can be made 1-2 hrs ahead and chilled.

                    2. STEP 2

                      Heat a waffle maker following the manufacturer’s instructions, brush with a little of the oil, then ladle in enough batter to just cover the surface. Cook following the manufacturer’s instructions (usually 5-6 mins) until the waffles are golden brown and crisp. Serve immediately or keep warm in a low oven while you make the rest. Drizzle with maple syrup or sprinkle with icing sugar, if you like.

                        Ingredients

                        • 2 Eggbert eggs, beaten
                        • 2 cups flour
                        • 1 teaspoon salt
                        • 1/4 cup water
                        • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
                        View Recipe

                        Instructions

                        1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg and oil, and mix with your hands. The mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1-2 tablespoons of water.
                        2. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 3 to 4 minutes. Add more flour to your table surface if the dough starts to stick. Let the dough rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. 
                        3. With a pasta machine or by hand, roll out the dough until it is at your desired thickness. If you’re using a pasta machine, you’ll want to start off with the widest roller setting, and roll through your dough. You can gradually reduce the width, running the dough through the roller with each setting. Use the machine or a knife to cut the pasta into strips of around 1cm wide, or according to your preferences.
                        4. Let dry or cook immediately. If cooking fresh pasta, reduce the cooking time and check frequently to ensure that it does not become overcooked. Serve with a homemade pasta sauce.

                          Insider info:
                          To hard-boil eggs:

                          • Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer.
                          • Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch.
                          • Heat over high heat just to boiling.
                          • Remove from burner.
                          • Cover pan.
                          • Let eggs stand in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra-large eggs).
                          • Drain immediately. Cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then Refrigerate.
                          • Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling.
                          • Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.

                                1.  First preheat your oven to 200 degrees.  Then line a large cookie sheet with foil for easy clean up.
                                2. Spread a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom of the cookie sheet in a shallow layer.

                                  1. Spray a microwave safe dish with cooking spray. Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, black beans, cumin, oregano salt, and pepper. If your are adding extra veggies stir them in as well. If your veggies are raw, you can microwave them first for 1-2 minutes until just tender. 

                                  2. Microwave the eggs for 1 minute. Remove and scramble with your fork. Return to microwave for 1-1.5 minutes until cooked through.

                                  3. Warm the tortillas. I prefer to do this directly on the burner on the stove so they toast a bit but you could also microwave them for 10-15 seconds.

                                  4. Assemble your tacos with your favorite salsa, avocado, and any additional toppings.

                                    1. Cut the avocados in half and remove pits. Scoop a little bit of avocado out of each half to make a bowl shape to fit the egg in. Set aside.

                                    2. Heat olive oil in a small pan over medium heat.

                                       

                                    3. Crack eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork until well combined. Pour the eggs into the heated pan and allow them to cook, stirring gently. Scramble the eggs and mix in the cheese, salt and pepper about 1 minute before the eggs are done. You can either mix in the tomatoes and micro greens, or top on your eggs whichever you prefer.

                                       

                                    4. Scoop eggs into the avocado, and enjoy!

                                        1.  Heat half the oil in a pan, then add the bacon and fry until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.

                                           

                                        2. In the same pan, fry the mushrooms until golden and softened, then set aside along with the bacon.

                                        3. Mix together the mince, salt and pepper, thyme and parsley, then shape into 4 patties.

                                        4. Heat a griddle pan, drizzle the patties with the remaining olive oil then grill on both sides.

                                        5. To prepare the tomato relish, place the cherry tomatoes, garlic, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in a clean pan and simmer gently until the tomatoes start to burst and soften.
