Egg Recipes for Easter Day

Updated on May 22, 2011

How do you like your eggs?

I believe this week, you will have many leftover eggs, and the humble eggs is one of nature's most nutritional foods and really easy to mix in any kind of recipes. Egg itself is a healthy ingredient and it is after all the symbol of life itself, a new beginning.

Eggs are an excellent source of protein to help keep skin supple and muscles strong. I love eggs, when I was still a child, I could eat 6 to 10 eggs per day, that's what my granny told me :) Eggs provide a wide range of vitamins and minerals.

How do you like your eggs? Well, you can make many different meals with eggs, like boiled eggs, fried eggs, eggs in sauces, in cakes and even in ice cream. There are many ways to cook eggs, frying, boiling, baking, poaching, and steaming. Cuisines from all over the world may use eggs in varied and distinctive ways, like the French Souffle, Cawan mushi in Japan (steam savory custard), Gelato and Frittata Omelet from Italy, English custard, the Spanish Omelet, Australian pavlova, and also in many Indonesian's dishes.

In traditional Indonesian cuisines, there are many ways to cook the eggs, like our Egg Martabak (like super big crispy omelet with eggs, meat, vegetables for filler), siomay (fish dumpling with boiled eggs and peanut sauce), eggs in fried rice, eggs in noodles, soto ayam (sour and spicy chicken soup), and many more.

For this Easter Day, why don't you try some Indonesian traditional egg recipes?

How do you know if your eggs are fresh ?

  • Fresh eggs normally have a rounded, firm yolk and you can see it sits ups nicely.
  • The white has a thicker gelatinous layer that clings all around the yolk and a thinner outer layer.
  • Another fresh test is to place the egg in a tumbler of cold water, if the egg sinks to a completely horizontal position, it is very fresh. If it is in a semi horizontal position, it could be up to a week old, if the egg floats into a vertical position, then the egg is definitely stale.


Have a great Easter Holiday!
