Had enough of your regular breakfast of scrambled or boiled eggs? If you are looking for alternative breakfast ideas, we are here to talk about the many different ways the humble egg can be remixed into something better and tastier. Read on to find out how the versatile egg can turn your regular breakfast into something you look forward to every day.
1. Banana pancake
If you are craving for something sweet, use your breakfast egg in some homemade banana pancakes. Combine 1 banana, 1 egg and 1/4 cup rolled oats in a blender. This silky mixture creates a single serving of fluffy and absolutely flavourful banana pancakes. You will get hooked!
2. Rice omelette
Think breakfast omelette, but with a local twist. Add a few spoons of cooked rice to your next breakfast omelette. The addition of rice to your eggs makes your breakfast extra filling. Moreover, the rice simply serves as a replacement for carbohydrates like bread or potatoes that you would usually enjoy with your eggs. With olive oil and chopped onions, this dish will taste as delicious as fried rice, but without all the extra guilt.
3. Eggy Oatmeal
Eggs in oatmeal might be a surprising combination but these two items actually work well together. For a quick and tasty breakfast bowl, add a generous heap of scrambled eggs on top of oatmeal that has been cooked in water. The salted and buttery taste of the soft eggs will compliment the unflavoured, nutty texture of your oats better than you can imagine!
4. Egg-coated tofu
Tofu for breakfast is totally do-able! Cut your regular tofu int0 medium-sized squares before coating them generously with a batter made from eggs, salt and spring onions. The egg mixture will transform the tofu slices into savoury and crispy delight as you pan fry them in a lightly oiled pan. Cook them until both sides are golden brown and enjoy this sumptuous delicacy with some chilli padi soy sauce.
5. Curried eggs
Amp up the flavour of your morning eggs with a pinch of turmeric and red chilli powder. Your taste buds will appreciate this extra addition as curried eggs taste amazing with finely chopped onions and coriander leaves. Plus, the chilli powder gives your metabolism a quick boost first thing in the morning.
6. Egg noodle soup
Who says you can’t have soup for breakfast? Start by letting your leafy greens and lean cut of protein cook in a pot of salted water. Bag extra health points by opting for whole grain noodles. After bringing the ingredients in the pot to a simmer, round up this simple breakfast soup by dropping in an egg. We are all for the occasional and yummy spoonfuls of silky eggs!
7. Breakfast bake
Let your oven do the work for you by putting together a breakfast bake. All you have to do it stir a few eggs along with chopped vegetables in a lightly greased baking tray. Let this mixture cook in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes. Once the outer edges are golden brown, these baked eggs are ready to be served. This recipe is versatile, so you can experiment with various vegetables and proteins of your choice.
8. Egg roll
Tired of egg sandwiches? Then, this one is for you. Give your well-cooked omelette a makeover by turning it into a breakfast burrito. Spread some guacamole or hummus on your omelette and put some fresh vegetables on it before rolling it up. And now you’ve got yourself a mighty delicious breakfast wrap!
