This is kind of a cross between an Omelette & a Pancake type Breakfast dish. A Lovely Soft Golden Eggy Blanket encasing Warm Spinach & Nutmeg Filling with Sautéed Mushrooms & Sweet Shallots accompanied by Gorgeous Nutty Melty Swiss Cheese – Delicious! This makes a very large serving at 6 propoints or 2 propoints on the Filling & Healthy plan. For the Egg Roll:
A Tiny Dash of Skimmed Milk
1/4 Tsp Dried Parsley
Salt & Black Pepper For the Filling
2 Shallots Finely Diced
4 or 5 Chestnut Mushrooms
A Large Handful Fresh Spinach
Salt & Black Pepper
1 Slice Swiss Cheese
Peel & slice the mushrooms. Lightly fry the shallots in sprayoil for a few minutes until softened. Add the mushrooms & continue to fry until the mushrooms are browning & soft. Rinse the spinach under cold water & shake off any excess water. Add the spinach to the mushroom & shallots & continue to fry over a low heat until the spinach is wilted. Season the filling with salt, black pepper & a small grating of fresh nutmeg. Meanwhile crack your eggs into a bowl & add the dash of skimmed milk, salt, pepper and the dried parsley. Beat the egg mixture well & pour onto a preheated pan that you have sprayed with oil. Cook the egg for a few minutes until brown & cooked through. Place the pan under a hot grill for a minute to cook the top, remove from the grill & place the cheese slice in the centre of the egg & put under the hot grill again for a further few seconds to a minute until the cheese begins to melt. Remove the egg roll from the pan onto a plate with a spatula & place the spinach & mushroom filling in the centre, roll up the egg roll, cut in half & Enjoy!
Brunch time is King at the weekends, nice lazy starts so by the time you eat it’s halfway between Breakfast & Lunch. Plenty of time available to lounge leisurely over eating it with a hot cuppa & a Sunday paper. I was going to have Normal Potato Cakes with Bacon & Spinach but alas I had neither ordinary potatoes or bacon medallions when I went to look so came up with this instead. So tasty and filling at 6pp or free on F&H. I’ll see you all at Lupper!
150g Sweet Potato Peeled & Cubed
1/2 White Onion Finely Diced
Large Handful of Fresh Spinach
1/4 Fresh Nutmeg Grated
Salt & Black Pepper
Boil the sweet potatoes for approximately 10 to 12 minutes until soft. Meanwhile gently fry the onion in sprayoil for a few minutes until soft. Chop & add the spinach for a few minutes more until wilted. Drain the sweet potato well & place in a bowl with the spinach and onion mixture. Season well with the nutmeg, salt & pepper & divide into two forming medium patties. Fry in a hot pan sprayed well with sprayoil (a non stick pan helps) for approximately 5 minutes each side until golden brown. If I’m nervous of flipping something in case it collapses I always use the plate method: grab a plate that will fit in your pan & over the food, gently place it on top of the cakes holding it steady while you flip the pan so that the cakes are on the plate then gently slide them back in the pan to cook the other side, simples! Fry your egg in the usual way & serve it on top of the 2 cakes. Enjoy!
This is hands down one of the nicest breakfasts ever. Beautiful Silky Egg Yolk with Salty Creamy Feta and the Warmth of Fresh Nutmeg, Delicious!
1/2 Onion Finely Diced
Good Handful of Fresh Spinach
Cherry Tomatoes Halved
40g Feta Broken into Pieces
Salt & Fresh Black Pepper
Lightly saute the onion in a pan with sprayoil until soft & add in the spinach (spinach wilts down to nearly nothing so you’ll need a lot) When wilted place in a sieve & squeeze out any excess liquid from the spinach/onion mixture. Place in an ovenproof dish & add the tomatoes. Season well with salt & pepper & grate over the nutmeg. Make 2 small wells in the mix & crack in your eggs. Lightly season top of eggs with pepper. Sprinkle your feta over the top & bake in a preheated oven at 180c for about 20 minutes or until the egg whites are cooked & the yolks stay nice & soft. Yum yum! Enjoy on it’s own for 7pps or share it for 4pps & serve with some lovely wheaten soda bread or some nice crusty bread for around 2pps. Enjoy!
