7 Ways to Gear Up For Easter With Real Eggs
Easter is around the corner, and if you’re looking for a way to indulge minus the chocolate, why not opt for delicious recipes with real eggs instead?
Budget-friendly, versatile, nutritious and delicious, Pesto Princess brings you seven ways with eggs to kick-start your meal planning for the holidays and long-weekends.
Devilled party eggs – Hard-boil a few eggs; slice them in half and scoop out the yolks. Mash the yolks with mayonnaise and Chimichurri to make a spicy filling and spoon them back into the halved eggs. Get the recipe here.
Boiled eggs and soldiers – This childhood favourite never gets old. Make a beautiful soft-boiled egg, slice your toast up into soldiers and dip. A winner for the whole family.
Poached eggs to top a leafy salad – Top your greens with two perfectly poached eggs. Drizzle with basil and lemon pesto and break the eggs open for a tasty dressing.
Shakshuka – This is one of Pesto Princess’s favourite budget-friendly meals. Simply poach your eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, peppers and onions. Add an extra kick and spice it up with some harissa. Give Shakshuka a try!
Pizza pizzazz – Prepare your favourite homemade pizza and bake until it is almost ready. Crack a few eggs on top and continue cooking until the whites are cooked and the yolks are slightly runny. Eat and enjoy.
The ultimate burger – An egg can improve almost any burger. Skip the mayo or barbeque sauce next time and rather top your burger with sunny side up fried egg. Hmm, deliciousness awaits!
Perfectly poached eggs with maple bacon and pesto – Breakfast in bed is a treat. Serve poached eggs with sweet maple bacon (stay tuned for their recipe) and a good cup of tea.
