The only way he liked his eggs is soft boiled , and worst of all , its the way the eggs are served in Kopitiams in Malaysia and where the eggs are just cooked and he can just stir it and dip his toast and no bits and pieces of egg for him to really taste the egg. Now I can't make the perfect soft boiled egg (LOL). I promise him soft boiled and most of the time its halfway to boiled egg and there will be that gagging again. Thankfully my little one loves his eggs!! And makes its worse for his big brother by going "oooh Mumma made your favorite to day !",with a big cheeky grin on his face!
Anyway with all the egg drama I wondered if I should try scrambling it, and maybe add some meat and make a toastie. The boys love toasties, so last weekend while the boys went for their bike ride with their father, I made these. Scrambled some eggs, added some meat using the meat from Al kabeer Seekh kebabs,( you can replace with fresh sausage meat I think) or opt it out completely and add some tomatoes and more fresh herbs. Added some cheese and just added on bread and toasted in those sandwich toasties.
Well verdict? Its ok, but no gagging, so I guess its a good sign right?
Recipe : Scrambled Eggs And Meat Toasties
8 slices of sandwich bread
4 eggs, beaten
2-3 spring onions, sliced
1 green chilli finely chopped
3 Al Kabeer Seekh Kebab ( I used beef)
Generous handful of grated chedder cheese
oil and a knob of butter
salt and pepper
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a small frying pan , and add the meat ( tear the kebabs and drop bits of then into the pan and brown them. Remove.
Add an extra teaspoon of oil, and knob of butter and let the butter melt on a medium heat, bring heat down low.
Add the beaten eggs and gently stir over a medium heat. Season with salt and pepper. You will notice it will start to curdle and as soon as it just starts to set, remove the pan from heat add the spring onions, chillies ( this is optional) and the cooked meat and mix well. Spoon the mix on 4 slices of bread ( I like to butter the outside half of the bread, you can leave the butter out if you want it more healthy ). Place the other half of bread on top.
Pop in to the toastie press ( I like to heat it up first before using.) . You can brown it as per for your preference. Remove and serve !.
