recipe carousel #23 – eggs

We’ve been on a bit of a trend at Recipe Carousel, with the past two weeks being pancakes and breakfast themes.

The whole idea was to encourage people to eat more than eggs in the morning, but I don’t want people to think I’m anti-egg. That’s not the case at all. In fact eggs can be cooked in a variety of fun and unique ways.

So here are seven egg recipes to get your noggin’ thinking.

Uva e Pomarola (Eggs in Tomato Sauce) is a nifty recipe from Ilva in Italy (Lucullian Delights). This deliciously simple dish could be prepared for breakfast, lunch or dinner and is made from fresh tomatoes, chilli, onion, garlic and eggs. Photo courtesy of Ilva.

Tea Marbled Eggs (茶葉蛋 cha ye dan) are a recipe from Stephen in Taiwan (Eating China). The slightly boiled eggs have their shells cracked lightly to allow flavour to pervade and then they are simmered in an aromatic combination of black tea, star anise, mandarin peel, soy sauce and cinnamon. This is a common snack food in China. Photo courtesy of Stephen.

Hazelnut Meringue Cake is a show stopper from Pastry Chef in Canada (My Cool Desserts). Here a hazelnut flavoured meringue is topped with layers of melted chocolate, Frangelico flavoured whipped cream and hazelnuts. Divine! Photo courtesy of Pastry Chef.

Curried Stuffed Eggs come from Kalyn in the USA (Kalyn's Kitchen) as she uses her friend, Karina’s, cookbook. The yolks from halved hard boiled eggs are mashed with mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, Dijon, onion, chilli and curry powder then stuffed back into the egg white halves. Garnished with paprika and coriander, this is an excellent appetiser for any occasion. Photo courtesy of Kalyn.

Portuguese Egg Tarts are gorgeous looking treats from Mrs Baasje in the UK (Chicken’s Kitchen). Egg, milk, cream cheese, cream and sugar make this dessert easy and simple to make. Just whip them up and bake until set and browned. I suppose if you’re feeling really cheeky you could eat them while they’re still warm. Photo courtesy of Mrs Baasje.

Egg Curry was made by RP in the USA (My Workshop). Onion, garlic, curry leaves, fresh ginger and green chillies flavour a curry made of tomato and masala powders (coriander, chilli, tumeric, garan masala). Finished with coconut milk, these eggs couldn’t have been treated better. Delish! Photo courtesy of RP.

Baked Sweet Potato w Eggs & Harissa is a fun, spicy treat from Santos in Guam (The Scent of Green Bananas). A sweet potato is baked until tender then hollowed out. The pulp is mashed with harissa (North African chilli paste) then stuffed back into the potato shell. It’s then topped with an egg and breadcrumbs and baked again until the egg has set.

Add your own recipe!
If you want to link in your own pancake recipe and share the love around, just leave the link in the comments section. You didn’t have to invent the recipe yourself, just make it and post it on your site. The whole idea of Recipe Carousel is that good recipes are shared with people who love to cook.
Note: Usual comments are more than welcome but all html links must be recipe related (yours or others).
