Recipe Time - Omelette vs Microwavable Scrambled Eggs

Recipe Time - Omelette vs Microwavable Scrambled Eggs

I'm still half-heartedly committed to getting healthy and losing weight and recently got told that breakfast is the best thing to eat if you're trying to lose weight.

Eggs are a great source of protein, making them an ideal breakfast to keep you content until lunchtime. Recent studies have shown that eggs can help keep you fuller compared to other common breakfast foods, meaning you are less likely to overeat at lunchtime and lose more weight in the long term.

Currently, the two ways I eat eggs for breakfast are omelette and microwavable scrambled eggs. As you can imagine, the microwaveable breakfast option is very quick! Here are the recipes, (omelette pictured right) in case you want to try them.

How to make an Omelette

You need:
3 eggs
1 shallot, finely chopped (optional)
salt and pepper
grated cheese
butter and oil
medium frying pan
mixing bowl

1. Fry up the shallot with a little bit of butter until soft.
2. Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and add salt and pepper. Grate cheese into the bowl and blend with a large fork. Do not over-mix.
3. Add the grated cheese and cooked shallot and mix gently with the egg mixture.
4. Use a medium sized frying pan and heat up with 1/2 teaspoon of oil and butter. Make sure the pan's base is covered with the oil and butter. Turn the heat up and pour the egg mixture evenly over the base of the frying pan.
5. Leave for a few seconds to form and thn start to pull in the edges of the omelette into the centre with a spatula. Allow the liquid egg to fill any space and keep swirling the pan around.
6. Once you have a small amount of liquid egg left, fold over the omelette.


How to make Microwavable Scrambled Eggs

You need:
3 eggs
salt and pepper
microwavable bowl

1. Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and add salt and pepper. Mix well.
2. Check your microwave, but as a guide set the timer to 1 minute 20 seconds. When they start to rise - you know they're done. Mix again with a fork.
3. You can add cheese if you want, or sometimes I like to add chilli flakes to spice it up!


So there you have it, two ways to enjoy eggs at breakfast. Enjoy!
