One of my New Years resolutions is to blog more so expect ramblings and recipes, some Dutch titbits and hopefully some useful information too.
I started the 31st of December very well, healthy dinner and in bed by 10 pm ignoring the party noises from everywhere in town. It went downhill on the 1st of January when I spent a whole day drinking with old and new friends culminating in the mother of all hangovers on the 2nd (and other embarrassing incidents which we will not go into here). Oh well….much fun was had.
Then yesterday, completely sober I broke a toe walking into a concrete table – pain….silly enormous tear-inducing pain for such a small bone so I’m trying to detox but failing somewhat (ibuprofen and beer does numb pain extremely well in case you are wondering).
The answer to a hangover in case you are not the ibuprofen & beer type is a perfect mix of carbs and protein and I have just the thing 🙂
Squidgy Cheesy Healthy Scrambled Eggs on Toast
There is no set ingredients list for this except for fresh slices of bread, eggs and cheese (preferably a medium or mature Cheddar or Gouda – cheeses like Mozzarella or Brie will not work…you need some bite). Not forgetting a lot of butter!
It’s very simple – toast your bread, spread butter on it (no margarine when hungover).
Cook your eggs in a frying pan with tons more butter, salt and pepper (milk is not needed…optional – just cook the eggs for less time if not using and keep stirring with a wooden spoon) and add grated cheese towards the end until you have a gorgeous mix of cheesy eggs and when ready, pile the very cheesy egg mixture onto the toasted bread slices and dig in.. Simplicity but effective.
You can of course become more adventurous and fry onions, tomatoes, chilis and all sorts of other ingredients first before adding the eggs but I couldn’t be bothered on the 2nd. Sometimes I can and add prawns too or tuna and it turns into a baked potato topping for dinner.
But simple is good and nutritious.
