British Lion Eggs sent us an electronic egg boiler so that we could test out some recipes. Do you know how many calories are in an egg
? Possibly not as many as you think.. I can’t boil an egg – hard or soft – for toffee, so I was excited to try this baby out!
Turns out, it’s a genius invention. There’s a dial with pictures on it to show how hard or soft you want your eggs boiled, so you just pop the eggs in, fill it with water using a handy measuring cup provided and off you go! The measuring cup also has a pin on the bottom with which to pierce a hole in your eggs, so that they don’t crack while they’re cooking. Love it!
S is not a massive fan of boiled eggs, but I like to hard boil them and hide them in meals that involve sauce. I think that started with what is apparently a weird family tradition of putting hard boiled egg in curry. Mmm, chicken curry with hard boiled eggs! Yum!
I know a lot of people tend to eschew the humble egg, and many will eat only egg whites because the yolk is apparently where all the fat is… but who doesn’t love a gorgeous, runny yolk in an egg? And did you know that the yolk of an egg contains all the enzymes we need to digest it properly?
Right, my eggs are cooked – I’m off to cut myself some soldiers!
