Omelette stuffed with Salami

Stuffed Omelette Recipe

Eggs and me, inseparable! I just cannot get enough of eggs. It is must have in my breakfast. Whenever my mom asks me what I want to have for breakfast, invariably I will say "Omelette and Parantha". It just fills my heart with gladness! Oh la la, I just cannot stop talking about eggs.

Now, at times I do not plan what I want to cook. I will see what is in the fridge and then make something out of it. And today morning exactly this happened. My wife loves English breakfast, she is not the type of woman who loves stuffed paranthas like yours truly does. And I am a typical punjabi lad, I love my paranthas and butter. 

I saw some chicken salami and eggs in the fridge and thought of trying something different. And so I thought, why not stuff my Omelette with salami. Also, look at Shakshuka which is another fantastic breakfast.

Here is the the simple Omelette turned into a more delicious form.

Egg Frittata

Frittata Recipe or How to make Frittata

Hi Bhukkads,

How are you?

Weekend and time for that innovative and amazing breakfast, isn't it? Well that is exactly what I had today on this Lazy Sunday Morning. Two things I did, made this amazing breakfast and dusting of the house. Well, that is my way of helping my wife at home on weekends. Trust me, I do both things with passion as I like my food good and my house without a spec of dust.

Anyway, enough bragging and lets get to drooling. I have always though of baking eggs a fantastic way to have eggs. Egg Frittata was one thing that I wanted to make as I love eggs. Give me eggs anytime, in any form, I will be happy! It is also a more nutritious form as you can add as many veggies that you want. I had only peas and onions in the house and made do with them but you can add anything that you want. Carrots, capsicum, mushroom, anything you love! Well, if I had planned it well, I could have added salami and sausages too! Hell yeah! Though Frittata in Italian translates to "fried" but I baked them totally except the veggies that I sauteed beforehand.

Healthy Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs or Deviled Eggs Recipe

It is every morning fare at our place, especially in winters. Me and my twin sons eat boiled eggs sans the yolk. They way they don't like the yolk reminds me of my childhood and how even I used to hate the yolk in boiled eggs. Well, it is a good thing as by not eating yolk we are avoiding FAT. But then all white becomes bland.

Deviled Eggs is something that came to my mind and I have seen to so many variations of Deviled Eggs. I actually did not want to create the same thing but wanted to see if I can do something new and make it healthy as well.

So here it is, Deviled Eggs with Hummus 3 Ways. I had made Hummus a day prior and had some leftover. So, That is how I got the idea of this. See, how leftovers can be easily used in a fantastic way.

Deviled Eggs
Deviled Eggs with Hummus
Deviled Eggs can be traced back to ancient Rome. Traditionally, they are served cold. Hard boiled eggs are cut into half lengthwise. Yolk is removed and then crumbled and mixed with mayonnaise and mustard or other ingredients and then stuffed back.

But as the name I gave, my Deviled Eggs are healthy and a fusion of European and Lebanese fare. I stuffed them with Hummus in 3 different variations. Not only it makes the the eggs to colorful but also variety of flavor adds the interest and it is super healthy.

Lets see how the recipe goes.

Recipe
Ingredients:

  1. 4 hard boiled eggs.
  2. Hummus. Find the recipe here.
  3. Red Bell Pepper.
  4. Spinach

Now we are using Hummus which already has a lot of flavor so we will not be adding additional salt or any other spice. If you feel the Hummus that you have made has less salt, just sprinkle some salt on top or add more salt in Hummus as with the boiled eggs it might taste bland. Make it as per your taste.

Shakshuka - African Eggs

Shakshuka Recipe


When you say breakfast with eggs. What comes to you mind? Omelette? French Toasts? Scrambled eggs or Bhurji? Half Fry? Sunny Side up?

Well, I am going to share a breakfast that is as unique as a Dodo in India. Why? Because it is very non-Indian, it is Moroccan. It is sort of heavy, protein rich and yummy!!! And its different, that's the beauty of it!


Yes, today the recipe that I am going to share is an African dish called Shakshuka but I have given it a twist of my own. Well, once you get a general idea after reading this post, even you can make your own twist.


Shakshuka is a staple of TunisianLibyanAlgerianMoroccan, and Egyptian cuisines. Because eggs are the main ingredient, it is often on breakfast menus, but in Israel, it is also a popular evening meal.

Egg In A Hole

Egg in a hole or Egg in a hole recipe

Managing 4 year old twins is such a difficult job but sort of blessing as even as a father I cannot escape their responsibility. Everything has to be shared and mother does not get to do everything alone. So, I picked up the part which I love so much and that is cooking.

So, as I was making eggs Sunny Side up for my kids, I thought why not make it different. Then I got the idea from the shape cutters my kids have in their clay shape maker collection. Eggs are actually power house of protein and very important for kids. Though we as adults avoid yolk due to health reasons, I advocate giving yolks to kids alongwith whites as it is full of energy which kids need. Also, if they have cold, hard boiled eggs with yolk really does wonder.

Ingredients
