Lately we've been trying to eat more healthily. We've been eating a lot more salad, grilled fish etc and also tried to cut down on carbs, which I have to say I'm finding difficult! Potatoes, rice, pasta, bread etc have for me, always been an essential part of every meal on a daily basis! Trying to cut them out has been really difficult! We've also started trying to eat more eggs. They're packed with protein, full of nutrition and amazingly versatile and to be honest we don't eat enough of them. In fact according to British Lion Eggs the limit on egg consumption has now been lifted as it's known the cholesterol they contain doesn't not have a significant effect on blood cholesterol.
We were recently sent this Severin EK3157 Egg Boiler, which was handy as we all know I'm pants in the kitchen! This electric egg boiler seemed like the foolproof way to achieve hard or soft boiled eggs and if I can work this little baby anyone can!
The electric egg boiler is pretty small and able to cook up to six eggs at a time with just one small container of water. Add the eggs, water and then set the timer to the required setting and leave it to do it's thing. It'll let you know when it's ready by beeping continuously.
The first egg I tried was on a medium setting which seemed to come out quite firm with a soft, but not runny, yolk
I tried cooking another egg on the lowest setting and this resulted in a much runnier yolk. Perfect for dippy egg and soldiers, except no carbs means no soldiers!
Whilst on the British Lions Egg website I noticed their sister site packed with 100s of recipes. I actually can't believe how many different meals you can make with eggs! In fact, I can't believe how versatile the simple omelette is! I'll definitely be trying out the carb free omelette fajitas and Liz McClarnon's Thai style stuffed omelette! Visit omelette recipes to see exactly what I'm on about and tell me which is your favourite!
