Eggs - Recipes to Stun and Impress
Eggs are often a very misunderstood cooking ingredient. They are often blamed for being high in cholesterol or for causing salmonella food poisoning. The reality is, however, that when consumed in moderation and prepared in the correct fashion, eggs are extremely nutritious. This site is therefore dedicated to providing healthy egg recipes on an an ongoing basis and to considering the many different ways in which we can prepare eggs in a healthy and nutritious fashion.
Healthy Bacon and Egg Recipe
Bacon and egg is of course a very popular combination, particularly at breakfast time. How often, however, is it truly served in what is anything approaching a healthy fashion. Frequently, both the bacon and the egg - as well as any other accompaniments - are fried in saturated fat. This is a healthy bacon and egg recipe which is just as tasty if not more so than the traditional recipe.
Ingredients (Per Person)

Half a tomato

Salt and pepper for seasoning
Break the eggs in to a small bowl and beat them with a fork or whisk. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Healthy Cheese and Tomato Omelette Recipe
Omelettes of course come with a variety of different fillings. This simple cheese and tomato omelette, however, is just as delicious as any.
1 small tomato (de-seeded and roughly chopped)
1 cherry tomato for garnishing (quartered)
1oz hard cheese such as cheddar (grated or shredded)
Salt and pepper to taste
Knob of butter for frying
Break the eggs in to a small bowl and whisk them thoroughly. Season to taste.
Melt the butter gently in a small, non-stick frying pan. Add the egg mixture. In the early stages of cooking, draw the egg mixture in towards the centre from arround the edges with a spatula. Refrain from this practise once the eggs begin to set.
When the eggs are almost completely set, add the chopped tomato and then the cheese to one half only, as shown. Fold the other half over on top and serve with the cherry tomato.
Healthy Poached Egg on Toasted Bread Roll with Salad Recipe
This healthy egg recipe truly is simplicity itself. Ten minutes tops is all it takes to prepare and cook this dish from start to finish.
Half a bread roll
3" of cucumber
2 or three basil leaves
Put a large pan of water on to boil and add about 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar. Break the egg in to a cup and when the water has reached a rolling boil, turn down the heat to medium and stir the water rapidly to create a whirlpool effect.
