I think eggs are really versatile products and can be used to make some fantastic breakfast and brunches. Sunday’s are a bit of a mixed day for us at home as my partner returns to work for the week and my daughter is away alternative weekends so there’s a lot of waiting around and we never really have a big Sunday dinner like a roast so it’s great to be able to have a late morning brunch.
My favourite is baked omelette. I’m not very good at making omelettes in a pan so instead I bake them which a variety of flavours to create something lovely. A favourite of mine is a simple ham and cheese mix which is really versatile and can be adapted with healthier ingredients.
3 Medium Eggs
200 ml Semi Skimmed Milk or Milk Alternative (Soy etc)
A generous handful of cheese – I used a chedder and mozerella mix but feel free to use your favourite or a low fat alternative
A teaspoon of cream cheese – I used Boursin with garlic and herbs because I love the flavour but this also works really well with fat-free cottage cheese or a cream cheese alternative
Four slices of ham, cubed with the fat trimmed off – can also use bacon
Sprinkle of dry chives
Pinch of Paprika
1 Tsp of Lime & Cracked Pepper
1 Tsp of Southern Onion Spice Blend
Very simple and easy to do I just beat the eggs and milk together and added in the ingredients leaving some of the cheese to sprinkle on top. Added a pinch of paprika and chives before popping in the oven at 190 (fan oven) for 30 minutes. I was pretty happy with the result.
To make the dish more filling or more suitable for lunch I think a peppery side salad would really add to it.
