A place for all kinds of food, crafts and general nerdery
As I said in yesterday’s post, I made bread and decided to have scrambled eggs on bread for dinner. I have many-a-many recipes on my pinterest board (357 at last count, and only about 10 I’ve actually tried). So I decided to scour through the board and find a different scrambled egg recipe. Turns out I had one 🙂
Normally, I either make my eggs in a saucepan or in the microwave. However, the microwave makes it taste a bit…..funky to me and the saucepan requires constant supervision. I’m too lazy to stand over a stove cooking. I like to sit down lol. So this recipe is kind of a win for me. Plus it enables you to make a large amount in one go (if you’re serving breakfast for a few people). I can see me doing this recipe for people when they stay over after a drinking night lol.
The recipe came from http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/57459/oven-scrambled-eggs and the recipe allows you to change how many servings you want. I made enough for 2 people as my mother was trying it out with me.
Oven Baked Scrambled Eggs
20g melted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1) Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180 C/350 F
2) Pour the melted butter into a shallow-ish casserole dish. I used an oval dish that was 8″ by 5″ and 1.5″ deep.
3) Whisk the eggs and salt in a jug. Gradually add the milk.
4) Pour into the dish and bake for 10 minutes. Stir and leave for another 10 – 15 minutes.
The dish was a little full and took a little longer to cook, so I would use a larger dish next time around but this is a very simply dish and the egg is sooo fluffy when it comes out. This is now my go-to recipe for scrambled egg. Please ignore the brown bits around the edge of the dish. As I said above, it was a little too full and I’m not so stable with my hands (damn you, Fibro!) so I may have sloshed it around a little.
It’s also a pretty cheap meal as well.
Price for whole recipe (here): £0.49
Price per serving: £0.24
So for the evening meal for mum and I:
Loaf of bread: £0.11
Scrambled egg: £0.49
= £0.30 each.
How can you argue with that? 🙂
Cheers for now,
