Super-Egg Dinner


27 Dec Super-Egg Dinner

I was crazy enough to think that heading to Germany for some snow gear for the boys, with the boys, was a good idea. But heading there when there are terrible driving conditions outside (non-stop snow, well below freezing, plus it took us no less than 40 minutes to actually open the car doors that froze shut), and meeting ALLLLL of Switzerland at the Lago-mall – that was the cherry on the top. Sigh

So we finally get home (with a slight mental breakdown on my behalf), and soon thereafter it’s dinner-time. Yup, another sigh.
But then I realize, I got me 6 beautiful farm eggs waiting to be devoured.

Then, finally, came the sigh of relief, which was followed by grabbing anything I could find in the fridge and freezer. I found six carrots, three orange and three purple, a spring onion, a bag of fine green beans, frozen peas, and frozen garden sage. All of that, plus some butter (I could say “a bit” of butter, but I’d be lying…), some delicious cheese, and good old salt and pepper.

Treasure found in the fridge

From there on it was easy peasy lemon squeezy!

  • Oven turned on 200°c
  • Carrots – peeled and chopped
  • Green beans – chopped
  • Peas – rinsed off (the freezer tends to give a funky flavor, but it easily washes off)
  • Sage – chopped, as well as the spring onion.

Pulled out my trusty cast iron skillet (though of course any good sized oven proof pan will do), slightly fried the spring onion, added the carrots and sage with a bit of sea salt, fried for a few minutes, and added the rest of the veggies. Whisked the eggs with salt, pepper, and a bit of tap water (you can also add milk/cooking cream to bulk it up even more), and poured it all over the veggies. Placed a couple of cheese squares over the whole thing, and put everything straight into the oven.

Best. Dinner. Ever

By the time I unpacked our shopping and set the table, the food was ready. Now, for those of you who know my kids, you’d know that Mika is the fussier of the two eaters. He eats plenty, but if it’s up to him, it will be plenty of junk food (or at least what I would consider junk food). That little dude asked for seconds, and actually ate as much as I did!

So the moral of my story: NEVER think that going shopping with kids “will be ok”, and ALWAYS be happy to see a couple of eggs in the fridge. The End

      It’s delicious. And it gets such lovely sweetness form the carrots!
