Two Winning Breakfast Egg Recipes

Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day.The word 'breakfast' comes from 'breaking the fast', so in essence, you're ending the fasting period you experienced while sleeping.This might not be true for those who allow themselves the guilty pleasure of a little midnight-snack, but for the rest of us a period of significant abstinence comes to an end with breakfast.Many will argue that the only proper way to break this fast is by cracking open a couple of eggs and making one of the many classic egg recipes that mom used to make.If your mother wasn't in the habit of making eggy breakfasts or if you've grown tired of both plain fried eggs and their boiled cousins, then try one of these classic egg recipes: the best scrambled eggs you'll ever have.What sets this scrambled egg recipe apart is the addition of cream to the egg mixture and the technique used to 'scramble' the eggs.Ingredients: 2 large eggs 60ml (4 tbsp.) of full-cream milk 30ml (2 tbsp.) of cream butter for frying pinch of salt and pepper recipe: whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt and pepper.Heat a small, non-stick frying pan and melt the butter.It's important not to let the butter brown as this will discolour the eggs.Pour in the egg mixture and let it sit for 20 seconds without stirring.After 20 seconds don't stir the eggs, but lift the egg mixture with a wooden spoon and fold it over from the bottom of the pan.After every fold wait ten seconds before folding again.What you want is for your eggs to be softly set and still slightly runny in places.Once your eggs reach this stage, remove the pan from the heat and allow the eggs to rest for ten seconds before giving it one final stir and serving.The best omelette you'll ever have.Everybody loves an omelette but few are brave enough to try making one.The below recipe details an easy technique that will enable even the most inept of cooks to become omelette making pros.Ingredients: 2 large eggs pinch of salt and pepper.Good quality cheddar cheese butter for frying recipe: mix the eggs, salt and pepper together.Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat and melt the butter.Add the egg mixture to the pan and move the pan around to spread the mixture evenly.When the omelette begins to cook and starts firming up, but is still a little raw on top, sprinkle over the cheese and put a lid onto the pan.Leave for two minutes.Remove the lid and with a spatula ease around the edges of the omelette and then fold it in half, remove from the pan and serve.Note: there are loads of other ingredients you can add to your omelette like bacon, green pepper, mushrooms or tomato and basil.Fry these ingredients in a separate pan and add them to the omelette just before you fold it in half.These recipes will make enough for one serving so just double the ingredients for every additional person that needs to be fed.Now all that's left to be said is good morning and a happy breaking of the fast.
