Eggs are a staple in most households, you can make so many dishes out of these either as a whole or use egg as an ingredient in other dishes. It satisfies, binds and fluffs up recipes. Although you can use these recipes for any meal, I was looking for interesting ideas to make for my family for breakfast. Tired of the usual fried egg or omelette, I came up with these three ideas.

  1. Sausage rolls

This recipe is a cross between french toast and a sausage roll. Bread is used instead of pastry and it’s soaked in egg before rolling up with egg and a cooked sausage. If you have little ones especially, this will be a huge hit!

2. Egg Fajitas

This is more like a cross between a Fajita and a Quesadilla and a big fave with my boys. Onions and green Peppers are charred, then beaten egg is poured over together with cheese and a tortilla is pressed into the egg to set. Once cooked it’s flipped over, more cheese is added with coriander and the tortilla is flipped over and crisped on both sides.

3. Stuffed Omelette Sandwich

This is really cool. Beaten egg is poured into a pan and two slices of bread are placed over. Once the eggs cook the whole thing is flipped over and cheese and turkey are added and the extra egg flaps are folded in. This is a great sandwich to make if you’re going to be working at your desk or on the go as everything will stay together!
