Herby Eggs

March 17, 2012
Herby EggsEggs are a great snack food but soemtimes plain omlettes, boiled eggs and fried eggs can be a little plain so try some herby eggs and make plain food a little more exciting.  I have also discovered that seasoning plain foods can help you with learning how to season well.  Adding pepper and salt for the sake of it is pretty pointless if you don’t understand how this is enhancing the taste of your food or making it better.  For example, there is a reason why salt on chips tastes nice.  Flavour is the key people.

I made this to share, so lessen the amount for one person.
The recipe was adapted from ‘The Best Of Sainsbury’s Vegetarian Cooking’ (Reed International Books Limited, 1992).


6 beaten Eggs, Salt, Pepper, Oregano, Mixed Herbs, Marjoram, Dill and Butter.


1. After beating the eggs in a bowl, season the eggs with salt and pepper.
2. And in a tablespoon of each of the herbs.
3. Melt the butter in a large omlette pan.
4. When the butter has melted, then add your eggs to the pan.
5. Lower the heat a little and tilt the pan to make sure that the runny egg on top can cook at the sides.
6. Fold the egg or flip over to cook the over side.
7. Served folded in half, or chop it up to eat in a sandwhich.

Saffy’s Top Tip

Try and experiement with your herby eggs and other foods. Some people prefer more spices and herbs than others so test what you like.
