So once a week I have to make eggs in a new way that I have never made before. Usually what happens is I have a bunch of vegetables to use up and no protein, or I am saving some meat/fish for another specific dish but I don't want to have just a veg plate so I cook up some eggs. It's always great, and I am always happy with the results. But I want to expand my egg-folio...I want some new ideas (ethnic?) or techniques that aren't conventional (omelets, salads, etc). I love making savory souffles, but I want more.

I recently had an egg sandwich called a Malawach that might fit the bill- from a local restaurant featured in this thread. Scroll down just a bit through Jason Perlow's wonderful photos. If you can get the bread (see Pam R's suggestion in the same thread) I don't think the rest of the components should be that hard to do. Great stuff!

I have an old favourite "Cheese and Onion Savoury" - a sort of savoury bread pudding.

2 oz grated cheese.

1 small onion, chopped.

1 small clove garlic, crushed

2 eggs lightly beaten

1/2 cup milk

2 oz. soft breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon mustard

salt, pepper, also parsley if you wish.

Mix it all well together, put in a well greased 6 inch dish (bit more cheese on top if you wish), put in a hot oven about 20 mins until it is golden.

It is a nice change from a frittata, and lends itself to lots of variations.

Happy Feasting

you can do a steamed egg dish. i like to take soy sauce & sesame oil to taste and throw in about a tablespoon or two to water to 2 eggs, mix it all up and then throw it into a bowl and steam it.

I am lazy though so I just throw it in the microwave and garnish with some green onions. I call this "Sheena's half ass version of mom's delicious steamed egg"

very easy to make and tastes great with fresh rice

Get yourself a copy of Michel Roux's book, simply titled, "Eggs". I have a copy on the way and it looks to be one of the best single-subject cookbooks I've ever seen.

edited to ask if anyone has the book and, if so, what do you think of it?
