Fried eggs with bread & transfer window open

(OK, this post was meant to be published some two weeks ago – sorry ’bout that, nice and hectic weeks behind…)

I bumped into this recipe on this page,, and I immediately adored it – so I decided to spice it up a little bit.

The original is very good and nice, but I had things in the fridge to use. According to the original one, first is to make a toast but not with the toaster, but on butter in a frying pan. Well, never leave this step out! When the slices of the bread are toasted, with something round make a whole into the middle of them.

After that, it’s the eggs turn – take the yolks and the white apart – then put the white into the frying pan, and put the bread onto the white. Then the yolks go into the whole – then cover it and fry until it’s good for you. Continue reading


Like an egg salad – v Stoke, away, League Cup

So normally it would be an easy game, exactly like making an egg salad.

But these are different times for me and for United, as well – Moyes is learning and so am I. I thought I’d known a couple of thing around cooking – and I thought I’d known how to cook an egg. [And Young almost scored a screamer right now… Only he hit the side of the net.] So normally a game against Stoke would be a hard one, but most of the time won by routine, even with the B side.

Cooked eggs
Peeling wasn’t that easy…

As I would cook some eggs by routine – or I should say “boil” some eggs. ‘Cause so far I boiled eggs, not cooked them. So this is the first time when I put the eggs in a saucepan, covered with cold water, then bring it to the boil over high heat – and as soon as  possible. Then I remove the pan from the heat and let the eggs stand in the pan for about twelve minutes, as these are middle sized eggs. [So, I have time to watch I so far not that convincing United, where there’s still not much creativity.] Continue reading

First meeting with Wilkinson’s sausage

And the second meeting with the stuff of and Robert, its owner, but we’ll get back to it later.

So this time I’d decided to order sausages, the ones called Wilkinson’s Irish sausage. Those are made fresh on every Thursday so we had them delivered on a Friday – 1 kg, 9 pieces of spicy Irish meat.

I tried three different ways of cooking them.

The Hungarian way

Sausages and blood pudding is fried in a skillet after pig slaughtering, with a bit of oil or butter and water in it. I used a little bit of butter and nothing else in the oven, on 180 °C. I didn’t make a photo, but it was nicely fried and remained juicy inside with a bit crunchy on the outside.

Pickled eggs with chilies

I’v been planning it since I first saw the picture of a jar, packed with boiled eggs – and this last weekend was the day when I was ready for.

Pickled eggs are rather easy to make – boil the eggs, put them in a jar, pour vinegar on the stuff and ready. And it probably tastes good – I don’t know, ’cause I’ve never tried it. Only, I loved the picture of it, so I decided to make my own jar on the HMC way.

All in one jar - plus the eggs

Easy little breakfast

Now it is really easy and something for the eyes as well. Not at all my idea, found it somewhere on Facebook, well, probably on my wall.

You don’t need a lot of things for this, it’s about ten minutes to cook and good even for a hangover (provided that you’re that kind of a human who’s convinced that eggs are perfect for hangovers. Believe me, there are humans like that…). And your children will like it as well. Let’s see what you have to buy:

  • red pepper (1 or 2, one is enough for one person)
  • egg(s) (one per red pepper)
  • chili or hot pepper (I used normal hot pepper called “hegyeserős”)
  • spices as you like

Preparations need five minutes, frying takes something like ten, and there’s your funny little breakfast.

One red pepper and the others

So, just cut the red pepper into three round slices, put them into a frying pan, then break one egg into each. Then the seasoning and just fry until it’s ready. I covered the pan ’cause the top fries quicker.

Bon appetit!
