They are one of the best resources in the morning- packed with minerals and vitamins, virtually carb free, low in calories and full of protein. And besides their excellent nutritional profile, they are dirt cheap, easy to prepare and taste wonderful. Since they are so versatile, you can get innovative and whip them into appetizing entrees. To add variety to your morning food options and make your dishes more fulfilling, here are 5 ways to cook eggs.
Scrambled Eggs with Feta: This is probably the most conventional way to cook eggs. To prepare it, heat an 8 inch non stick pan over medium flame and add 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter. Meanwhile crack 3 large eggs in a separate bowl and whisk until frothy and combined. Add 1/4 cup of chopped onions and 1/4 cup of chopped tomatoes. When butter is completely melted, add the egg mixture to the pan. Wait to stir until the mixture has just begun to set. Next, add two tablespoons of feta cheese. With the help of a wooden spoon, start to push the eggs towards the middle, while tilting the pan. This will build small curds and let on the runny portions reach the hot surface. Continue until there isn’t any running portion remaining. Now remove eggs from heat and season with some fresh black pepper and kosher salt. Serve hot.
Spinach And Goat’s Cheese Omelet: For this super easy recipe, crack two large eggs in a bowl and whip until fluffy. Heat a non stick pan over medium flame. Next add 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the pan and pour the eggs into it. Allow them to spread all across the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of goat’s cheese and 1/2 cup of spinach to one half of the pan. Sprinkle some fresh pepper and kosher salt on top and cook for 2 minutes. With a spatula, fold one side over and rotate the omelet as needed. Serve hot.
Sunnyside Up with Whole Wheat Bread: Heat a non stick pan over medium flame and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Carefully crack an egg into the pan. After a minute, it will solidify into a firm white texture. Next, sprinkle some black pepper, cumin powder and kosher salt on top of the egg and carefully remove onto a plate. Serve hot with the toast.
Poached Eggs: Poaching stops the egg yolks fat from being converted into oxide, thereby making it a low-fat option. It is one of the healthier methods to prepare and relish eggs. For the recipe, fill a 12 inch pot with 3 inches of water and bring it to a boil. Next, reduce the flame and add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. Allow the water to stay at low flame. Break 2 large eggs into separate containers and carefully slip them into the simmering water. Now carefully remove eggs and sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper and salt. Serve hot.
Hardboiled Eggs With Mayo: They are a handy, high-protein “on the go” morning stale. To prepare them, place four large eggs in a pot and cover with water by two inch. Bring water to a boil over medium flame and allow eggs to simmer for two minutes. Now allow them to sit for 15 minutes at room temperature before peeling. Prepare a mixture of some mayonnaise, yogurt, salt and pepper and serve with the hardbolied eggs.
