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.

This is exactly how I like my eggs to look – sunny side up, soft and runny.  Perfect.8-2-14 - yolky egg 4B

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?12-2-14 - flower power egg 4B

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 go12-2-14 - flower power egg_close up 4B

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.

    Looks interesting using a pepper to keep egg in place.I will try next time I have a fried egg to do.

      Hello Janet and Mum. Re-read the original blog post and it looks like if you cover while cooking it might cook quicker. And the yolk may be more like the centre if a flower than in mine where the white congealed over the top. I too shall be making them again at lunch time ;0)

    That’s really clever – maybe using small eggs might help, and finishing it off like you do a Spanish omlette, because it’s definitely worth it for the effect!

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
