Chopped Egg Salad
2 hardboiled eggs
1 chunk cheddar cheese
drizzle olive oil
drizzle lemon juice
Chop the egg, avocado and cheese into similar sized cubes in a bowl. Sprinkle salt. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. A nice cold refreshing mini-meal.
Many people haven’t tried or don’t know how to poach eggs. There’s a lot of different techniques. Here’s mine.
Boil water in a pot, about 2-3 inches deep. Reduce heat until it is simmering but not bubbly violently. Crack an egg into the pot. Don’t stir or move the pot, just leave it. Increase the heat gently if it isn’t simmering, but don’t let it get to a full boil. 4 mins for a runny yolk, 6 mins for a dark moist yolk, 8 mins for a fully cooked yolk.
I like poaching eggs then putting them in a bowl with some cheese. Take some broth out of the freezer or fridge and warm it in the pot, then pour over the eggs and melt the cheese with it.
My Favorite Omelet
Makes 1 (large) serving
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup onion
2-3 leaves fresh spinach
1 inch cube medium cheddar cheese
1 (full) tbsp butter
Chop all veggies into small bits. Saute veggies in butter over medium heat until desired softness. Mix eggs and yolks in a mug and pour over veggies. Flip to cook other side. While it’s still in the pan, shred the cheese over top so it melts.
This may be a stupid question… but in recipes that require a certain number of egg yolks, what do you do with the whites? Do you just toss them, or is there something beneficial that you save them for? I’m new to GAPS, and just learning what works best for me.
Thanks SO much for posting your recipies… I don’t comment much, but I’ve used and LOVED several! (I have crock pot ribs making my house smell yummy at the moment…)
@Amy you can try making macaroons (http://www.elanaspantry.com/coconut-macaroons/) or meringues (http://www.wellsphere.com/digestive-health-article/scd-meringue-cookies/930146) or, just toss them. I have frozen egg whites in jars but never end up taking them out to use them.
Glad you’re enjoying the recipes! I love crock pot ribs.. 🙂
