Please tell me you love eggs.
Tell me you think they’re beautiful.
Tell me you can’t live without them.
Tell me you eat at least 2 on a regular day.
Tell me you don’t think I’m a crazy person, whose love for eggs is scaring you a little bit
I think my crazy love for eggs started when I looked at this.
(I do look a bit crazy. Maybe the photographer had an egg.)
It’s my mother’s fault. Eggs were the first solid food I ate.
And every time I eat an egg now, I travel back to the comforting warmth of my childhood.
Now usually I buy regular eggs. I have no idea where the chicken that laid the eggs was raised or how. Most people I know eat these eggs and have no problems, and they’ve always been good enough for me.
Then I discovered Keggs.
These are “near-organic” eggs.
I really don’t know what that means. It says so on the box.
But I’m guessing it has something to do with the way these chickens were raised.
Good food + sunshine + open air = happy chicken = yummy eggs
Bad food + dirty cage = sad chicken = not so yummy eggs
(That’s all the math I’m doing for a year)
These eggs have tan shells and bright, yellow yolks.
They taste better too.
I think it makes sense to use Keggs when you are eating the egg as the egg. So fried, poached, baked, scrambled…
However for baking a cake, or mixing into something else, I think regular eggs do just fine.
Today let’s do something decadent. One bite of this rich, creamy goodness and you will be in egg heaven. Yes you will
Creamy baked eggs
Inspired by: Mom
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15-20 mins
Serves: 1 very hungry person
Eat this with: Butter-garlic soldiers
butter for greasing
salt and pepper to taste
4 tbsp full cream
4 tbsp grated cheese
2 slices buttered brown bread
- Preheat the oven to 180º C. Grease a small ovenproof bowl with butter.
- Crack an egg into it and season with salt and pepper. Add 2 tbsp cream over the egg, and sprinkle with 2 tbsp grated cheese.
- Over this, crack another egg and season again. Add the rest of the cream and cheese the same way.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on how runny you like your yolk. I like mine a bit runny.
- Cut each slice of bread into 3 pieces and top with some garlic. Toast in the oven and use to dip in your baked eggs.
NOTE: You could try this with one egg if you aren’t as ravenous as me
