BreakEggfest

What’s for breakfast? This is probably the most simplest recipe I have put on Twistedvines, but one of my traditional favourites. Curried egg on toast. What better way to start the day, no fuss and nothing too fancy! Recipe: Curried Egg on toast 2 boiled eggs, peeled and smashed 1 teaspoon Keens curry powder 2 teaspoons mayonnaise salt and pepper to taste Place a small pot of cold water on stove, place two eggs in water just covered, when water is brought to boil leave for 2 minutes, turn off heat and leave to cool. When eggs are cool, peel and smash with a fork, add curry powder and mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Slice two thick pieces of bread, (no grain) and toast. All done, breakfast is served. Jazz it up by adding a little watercress and make a lunchtime sandwich. Enjoy! Yvette…x
