Cheesy Scrambled Egg ToastPosted in : Bachelor's Room, Breakfast Table, Egg Farm, From TTR Kitchen on by : Isha K Tags: bread, Cheese, Eggs, toast, Tomato
I was making Scrambled Eggs few days back and I thought to create something new with it. The next morning I woke up and opened my refrigerator, found some cheese spread, processed cheese and of course some bread. This breakfast recipe is filling and healthy for Eggetarians and Non-Vegetarians. You need to have a handful of Ingredients in your kitchen to enjoy this. And for the vegetarians in the family, you can substitute this with Cottage Cheese(Paneer) or vegetables or corns and let them also enjoy the sumptuous cheesy feeling.
The Egg Tray:
Onions: 3 Nos., medium, finely chopped
Tomato: 2 Nos., medium, finely chopped
Green Chillies: 2-3, finely chopped
Oil or Butter: 3-4 Tablespoons
Bread Slices: 6, cut diagonally into half
Processed Cheese slice or Processed Cheese cubes: Depends on you how much Cheeessyyyyy you want your toast. 😉
Cheese Spread: Nowadays, it is easily available in the market. I bought Amul Cheese spread, chilly flakes flavor. You can use any flavor of your choice. You can also use mayonnaise or any dip.
All Purpose Seasoning: This seasoning goes very well with everything, sandwiches, toast, pizza, pasta anything. You can find it in any department store, super store or good confectionery shops. You can substitute it with oregano, chilly flakes, or freshly crushed pepper. Do not confine yourself with ingredients and miss this super awesome breakfast. Just experiment and create something new. 🙂
The Egg Pan:
For Scrambled Eggs:
1. Heat oil or butter in a pan. Add chopped onions, fry till they become translucent or pink, do not brown them.
2. Add tomatoes and green chilies, saute till tomatoes become soft. Add salt. Break eggs in the pan and whisk to scramble it.
1. Preheat the oven for 5 minutes. Take bread slices, cut them in half, diagonally.
2. On a bread slice, apply Cheese spread, or any dip, you are using.
3. Put scrambled egg and then put a cheese slice or grated cheese. Sprinkle all purpose seasoning.
4. Repeat the steps with each bread slice. Put the slices in the oven for 10-15 mins at 180 degrees.
In case you do not use Oven, you can prepare this in the pan also.
1. Apply butter in the pan. Put the prepared bread slices and cover the pan with a lid to melt the cheese for 5 minutes or till they become crispy. Your toasts are ready.
Setve hot. Try them at breakfast or enjoy the warm cheese melting in your mouth just like that. 🙂
Egg is a wholesome food loaded with so many nutrients and health benefits. They contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need for a healthy body. Everybody thinks that eggs are high in cholesterol and it is not good to have them in large quantity, it is right that they are rich in cholesterol but they don’t adversely affect the blood cholesterol. The liver actually produces large amounts of cholesterol every single day. When we eat more eggs, the liver just produces less cholesterol instead, so it evens out. They actually raise HDL, which is a good cholesterol.
Eggs contain Choline. Now what is Choline, most people don’t even know that this is the most important nutrient we need for our body, even I also didn’t know till I read an article about eggs. It says that it is an incredibly important substance and is often grouped with the B vitamins. Choline is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions. Whole eggs are an excellent source of choline. A single egg contains more than 100 mg of this very important nutrient.
One of the consequences of ageing is that eyesight tends to get worse. There are several nutrients that help counteract some of the degenerative processes that can affect our eyes. Egg yolks actually contain large amounts of both Lutein and Zeaxanthin and Vitamin A too. The antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin are very important for eye health and can help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Eggs are high in both of them.
Eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams. They contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them.
Eggs make your skin and hair shine also. They are just awesome, goes with everything and are so filling.
