how do you like your eggs in the morning?
I like mine with a kiss. Boiled or fried, I don’t mind, as long as I get my kiss.
Years ago I tagged a blog post about Flower Power eggs using slices of bell peppers as moulds for fried eggs. I finally got around to trying it this month when OXO Good Grips sent me a flip and fold omelette turner to try. One pan, one pepper, one egg; easy peasy I thought. What could possibly go wrong?
Well it turns out making flower power eggs is easier said than done. It took 3 attempts to get an egg appetising enough to eat and photograph! Thank goodness I had my lovely wide, flexible omelette turner so that getting the egg out of the pan wasn’t on my list of things that didn’t work out. I did learn 4 very important things about making flower power eggs:
- cut the pepper rings thickly so the egg doesn’t overspill the sides
- don’t flip it over no matter how much it seems like it’s not cooking (it’s not a pretty sight!).
- expect it to take much longer to cook than the fried eggs you’re used to making (pop the pan under the grill briefly to remove the jelly like wobble from the top)
- use your biggest pan to make several in one go
Disclosure: I was sent the omelette flip and fold turner for the purposes of this review. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
