Hungry? Here’s Something Eggs-tra Special

by Tefal Team on 07 October 2021
  • Rethink eggs with our eggs-traordinary round up of recipes and nifty tricks. Why have we gone all eggy? Well, not only is it British Egg Week, it’s also World Egg Day on the 8th October, so we best get cracking!

  • Good egg

    Eggs serve up a decent load of nutrition in the form of protein, vitamins D, A, B2 and B12, folate and iodine. Now that past opinions about cholesterol and salmonella no longer hold true, eggs are back to being part of a healthy, balanced diet.

    From quail to ostrich, there’s quite a variety to choose from these days. We’re talking hens’ eggs in this blog though. Talking of hens, spare them a thought when selecting egg size.

  • Eggs-pert tips

    How do you like your eggs in the morning? Boiled and poached rank as healthiest and scrambling with low fat milk and no butter is better for you, while frying loads up the fat content by about 50%.

    For perfect eggs every time, take a look at these fail-safe, traditional tips. Go fancy with cloud eggs or do as TikTokers do and hard boiling in an air fryer.

    Quick side note: did you know that the liquid in a tin of chickpeas, aquafaba, is a great alternative to egg whites in baking? More on that in another blog, let’s get back to eggs.

  • Brunch eggs

    Eggs are good any time of the day but they’re the star of brunch with recipes like these halloumi eggy crumpets with salsa. Or whip out the air fryer for this dish of the moment, easy egg and toast.

    Fish lovers rejoice! With kedgeree vibes, these smoked haddock scotch eggs served with lemon mayo are serious competition for the classic version and sure to become a new favourite.

  • Eggs over easy

    We love a different take on a tray bake and this egg-topped Mexican migas inspired veggie tray bake ticks all the boxes. Served with homemade pickled onion salsa and sour cream – and ready in under half an hour – what’s not to love?

    Another speedy and delicious meal, chaat masala fried eggs are loaded with flavour. And for a quick meal that literally is as pretty as a picture, try this tomato and feta frittata.

  • Oeuf-ly good puds

    For dessert, go for the full eggs-perience with yummy egg custard, delectable pastéis de nata (Portuguese custard tarts) or irresistible crème brûlée (download the Cook4Me app here.

    We don’t like to mention the seasonal ‘C’ word too early, but seeing as it’s just round the corner we’ll leave you with this eggs-travagant eggnog recipe. Yes, you can buy it in a bottle but it’s easy to make and so darn delicious. We’re not even yolking…
