Why don't you makes some very thin egg omelets ( the thickness of a crepe), roll them up like a Swiss roll. I would scatter the Furikaki mix or some fresh chopped herbs on it before rolling. Let it cool completely & then cut into thinnish slices & use in a strong clear soup. You could use this Dashi stock from Azelia's latest blog.

Egg soup?  Ryvita?  Has the world gone mad?  Ryvita is cardboard isn't it?

I'll try that again!

Bring back the real food I say! Omlettes should be chunky and stuffed with cheese!

Toni, buy a packet of Black Pepper Ryvita, put on a topping you love and see how good they are, not cardboard at all.  Very crunchy and very tasty.

big_laugh big_laugh  Oh, ladies.....it is good we do not all like the same things.....!!  laugh I have been lucky lucky to have  eaten food from many different nations, that I came across in my work & leisure journeys. In some places I would have starved if I felt the same way as some of you do. I certainly would have mortally offended offended people who were entertaining me & allowing me to see how they lived & ate. I always tried to be as kind to them when they arrived on my doorstep.

We Brits have a terrible reputation abroad for having closed minds when it comes to the food we will try. I have always believed in having a go & tasting what is put before me. Of course I don't like everything but at least I have tried it before I condemned it. roll_eyes 

 

big_laugh big_laugh    Now I had better shut up &runaway runaway runaway

 

heart you all......... rose peace rose

I will try many things as long as it doesn't involve meat. I have been given some strange vegetarian meals in my time eg plate of grated carrot, plain pasta, fried potatoes on their own, sliced grilled aubergine, all as seperate meals and some in restaurants.

I have just had my lunch. I made a dish that I was taught in the 1950's by a lovely French woman who was the housekeeper/maid to a very rich Frenchwoman who owned the flat above ours.  The owner was very seldom in London so the housekeeper decided to teach me to cook as she despised the way the British cooked. It is a very simple dish of eggs & ham co oked on a plate over a saucepan of boiling water. You butter your plate, just the central dip, then lay thin slices of ham on it….I used Prosciutto, the break you eggs onto the top of the ham & sprinkle with pepper & fresh thyme leaves (be careful about adding salt as the ham is very salty). Place the plate on top of the saucepan of boiling water & cover with a lid. I use a Pyrex plate to cover as I can then see how the eggs are cooking. it only takes a few minutes until they are set; you eat it from the plate it was cooked on, of course. I love it with brown seedy bread & butter. You used to find this dish all over Paris in little bars but I didn't see it at all the last time I was there. Incidentally it is a perfect dish to make if you are camping. I have also made it for friends who were sick & didn't fancy food. 

I think it is a very simplified version of Oeuf sur le Plat, which is cooked in the oven.

I used three slices of ham & 3 of the tiniest eggs from my youngest pullets plus an even smaller egg from my 8 yr old bantam hen; she only lays the very occasional gift for me but the yolks are deep orange.  Thank you "Little Hen"  wave

That sounds good.  I had poached eggs on oat-bread toast for my lunch, followed by Blueberries.  I had my new delivery of eggs this morning and when I put them in the kitchen I found that I still had eight from previous deliveries.  Eggs for lunch all next week then by the look of it...i_am_hungry

I'll try that again!

I had a egg classic last night.  It started on Saturday when my neighbours (who don't/won't work) saw me return home without OH, within an hour there was a knock on the door - one of the younger inhabitants (very pregnant) asking for 20 Lev (about 9 GBP).

 

Errrrrrrrr 'No, I don't think so' or words to that effect were uttered by myself. She then asked me for food.  Same response from me.  Anyway a while later I was still feeling mean so took a dozen eggs round.

 

Last night I was made to regret that decision.   Just after 9.15 I answered the door to find one of her housemates who indicated to me that one of the eggs I had given them was cracked and they'd like some more to make up for it.   .............. I really need to learn how to say 'stop taking the piss' in Bulgarian (EP any suggestions on suitable cusses)

 

Anyway not an egg recipe or idea, other than don't give them to ungrateful neighbours.  steam

Tracey, what a nerve they have !!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you didn't indulge this individual ?

Perhaps it would be good to look up a few useful phrases  whistle

"How do you spell 'Love'?" (Piglet). 

"You don't spell it, you feel it" (Pooh).

 'A hug,' said Pooh 'is always the right size!'
