“Don’t skip breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day”. Has anyone ever said that to you? Chances are someone, mother, friend or paediatrician, probably has lectured you once on the repercussions of skipping breakfast. To those lucky enough to escape such fate, here's a recap. 

A scrumptious breakfast isn’t just nutrition friendly but also helps regulate your mood. It starts your metabolism system, boosts fibre and calcium intake, and gives you the energy to keep going throughout the day. Today’s list of breakfast recipes offer two quick and easy-to-cook breakfast meals that are just as delicious as they are appetising.

All you need to cook this breakfast recipe is vegetables of your choice and some eggs. This juicy, fluffy, egg dish is rich in protein and can be served with a variety of side dishes including toast.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs 
  • ½ onion (finely chopped) 
  • ¼ green bell pepper (finely chopped)

  • Place the pan on medium heat, and pour 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. 
  • Then pour some of the egg mixture onto the pan; spread the vegetables evenly. 
  • Make sure you lower the flame heat to a minimum and cook the eggs slowly 
  • Start rolling the omelette from one end. 
  • You may oil the pan a bit more using another teaspoon of oil.
  • Then pour the remaining mixture on the open end of the rolled omelette. 
  • Cook it on a slow flame; make sure the pan is oiled well. 
  • Next, cook the sides of the omelette by holding it with two spatulas. 
  • Let it cook for five minutes on a low heat, until all oil bubbles disappear. 
  • Let the omelette cool down for a few minutes before dicing it into small, square pieces.

Egg Bagels 

The globally popular recipe Egg in a Hole goes by names: bullseye eggs, gashouse eggs, hole in one, pirate's eye, popeye, and many more. This healthy recipe offers a unique twist to the dish by switching bread with bagels.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsps butter
  • 1 garlic (smashed)
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 2 bagels
  • Salami
  • 4 eggs

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°C. 
  • In a pan, melt butter with garlic and rosemary. 
  • Let it heat until it gets foamy. 
  • Cut the bagels in half. Make sure the hole is about 2-3 inches wide to fit an egg. 
  • Dip the bagel into the garlic butter. 
  • Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, dipped side down. 
  • Arrange salami in the middle of the bagel hole, then crack a medium-sized egg right into the hole.
  • Don’t get spooked if the whites spill out a little, it’ll cook and add a rustic touch to the dish.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolk is how you prefer.

Egg dishes, whether that’s a quick and simple recipe like the Korean omelette or a more elaborate affair like eggs in a bagel, make for an extremely healthy breakfast menu which can be cooked in less than 30 minutes. From a nutritional point of view, eggs are a nutritious treat: They raise good cholesterol, help maintain eyesight, and provide amino acids and protein. So, with eggs in the fridge, there’s always a breakfast menu you can lean on.
