As it’s #WorldEggDay, here are three egg-celent recipes to celebrate with

Today is #WorldEggDay but don’t worry if you are scrambling for ideas on what to cook in celebration, we’ve got you covered.

World Egg Day happens on the second Friday in October each year and was first established in 1996 at the IEC Vienna Conference.

As it only happens once a year, we want you to make the most out of the day.  Here are three mouth-wateringly good recipes to keep you on the sunny side up:

1. Egg and avocado on toast

How to make it:

  1. Pop one slice of bread into your toaster and heat a frying pan over medium heat, then add oil.  Next, crack one egg (or more, if you’d like) into the pan and fry for two minutes.
  2. Mash avocado using a fork and spread it evenly onto your toast.
  3. Place your egg onto the slice and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  You can even add some chili flakes on top too if your tastebuds fancy a bit of a party.

2. Crustless quiche (because really, who has the time to make pastry?)

How to make it:

  1. Put some oil in a frying pan and place over medium heat.  Fry your ingredients of choice – this could be bacon, peppers, courgette, onion, garlic, broccoli etc.  Pretty much any vegetables will work making it the perfect recipe to use up what’s left in your fridge.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200°C and add your mixture into a flan dish.
  3. Next, whisk three eggs and pour evenly into your dish.  Grate some cheese over the top if you like.
  4. Put your quiche into the oven and cook for about 20 minutes or until it has set.

3. Roast vegetables and bacon omelette

How to make it:

  1. Prepare your bacon and vegetables ready for your omelette.  I recommend onion, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes.
  2. Next, whisk 2-3 eggs with some salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat with some oil, butter or cooking spray and start frying your bacon and veg.
  4. When your mix has finished cooking, set them aside on a plate for later.  Next, pour the eggs you whisked earlier into your frying pan.
  5. Once the egg is mostly cooked, add your vegetables on one half of the omelette and turn the heat on low.  Fold the other half of the egg over and if you like, grate some cheese over the top.
  6. Once the cheese has melted, serve up your omelette and you’re ready to go.
