Eggs are a healthy choice for the start of the day or for any time of the day. Our birds, Henrietta and Penni, ensure that our eggs are absolutely fresh. And our favourite egg dish is never far from our table. Eggs have a subtle flavour with a few added ingredients it completely changes the taste without taking away the taste of the egg. Eggs are consistently good and satisfying.

  • Bunch of Spinach
  • One egg

Instructions

  1. I'm using up the last of my spinach in my garden a bunch will do.
  2. Break open an egg onto a low heat fry pan. Guide the yolk, with your finger tips, to the center of the egg white hold for a couple of seconds and it will cook and hold the yolk in the center.
  3. Continue to cook the egg slowly.
  4. Use a glass or round and cut out a neat circle around the yoke, it gives a better finish - that's if you're out to impress someone special.

Hollandaise Sauce

Buying Locally is Environmentally Awesome
