Spinach Fritata

Spinach Fritata

1/2 lb spinach
1/2 c sundried tomatoes, chopped
a little olive oil
1doz large eggs or equivalent of smaller eggs
salt
8oz feta cheese crumbles

If using fresh spinach, use 1/2 lbs after stems are removed. Clean and wilt spinach with the tomatoes and olive oil in an
iron skillet. Lightly beat the eggs with a little salt and pour into the hot pan. Stir gently so the veggies don't all end up
at the bottom. Top with feta. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook gently til set. You can also speed up the cooking by
putting it under the broiler when the edges are set but the middle is still liquid.

Quickest Egg

Quickest Egg

1. Find an appropriate utensil (a chopstick is good)
2. Poke hole through top of eggshell.
3. Start drinking egg. Poking a second hole in bottom of egg when tilted makes for easier drinking.

There you have it! No dishes, pans or spatulas to clean. Instant Protein! Some kids take eggs like this to school as a snack.

A good article on eggs:

Spice Eggnog

Spice Eggnog

Ingredients:
- 2 cups real creamy milk
- 4 eggs
- Dashes of fresh ground spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves
- A spoonful of honey
- Optional: a spoon of homemade kefir or yoghurt.

Either mix with hand whisk or make extra smooth in blender.

Once, I added a spoonful of kefir to the eggnog in a bottle and let it warm and culture. This helped me through a hot day of work in the field and a good bike ride.

Pumpkin Pudding

"Pumpkin" Pudding

Ingredients:
- Pumpkin, Butternut Squash, or Sweet Potato (I've actually only used Sweet Potatoes as yet)
- Eggs
- Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves (all ground)
- Optional additions: Cream or Butter, Honey, Walnuts

Take Pumpkin, Squash, or Sweet Potato and slice and steam or bake whole until soft.
Mash in bowl, or if you want a smoother pudding (keep the skins), blend in a food processor.
Mix in eggs, spices.
Stir in optional ingredients.

Yum!

Notes:
You may need to let sweet potato cool a bit before adding eggs so as not to denature them.

Green Eggs

Green Eggs

Ingredients:
- However many eggs you want
- More spinach than you think (You could also try other thin leafy greens like swiss chard)
- Pinch of minerals (himalayan salt)
- Add your favorite fresh herb or spice
- Cheese is good.

Mix eggs, spinach and salt/herbs/spices smooth in blender. Experiment with consistency. I found I could add quite a lot of spinach.

Pour into pan (you'll may want to oil the pan, I like coconut oil), cook gently, and move with spatula until done.

Add cheese if desired.

Now enjoy your deliciously light and fluffy (foamy?) green eggs!

Cheese Breakfast Pie

(by Helen Dickey---we like this cold or hot)

crust:
Make a rather dry crust out of Hodgson Mills buckwheat flour plus shredded
coconut plus Spectrum organic palm oil shortening and a little water and pat
into a greased glass pie dish. I don't measure, but I think it is about 1/2
cup flour, 1/2 cup coconut, two tablespoons shortening and less than a
tablespoon water. Pat so bottom and sides are mostly covered.

filling (whisk):
15 oz container of ricotta cheese
3 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon confectioner's sugar
1 Tablespoon Hodgson Mills buckwheat flour

Bake 375 until light brown on top and set.

Sour Cream Egg Omelette

(I changed a recipe from an egg and breakfast place at Rohoboth Beach but the
principles are the same---Helen Dickey)

Fry vegetables in butter or oil (onions, green or red pepper...)
Pour whisked egg mixture* on top
put the pan in the hot oven uncovered till set.

* egg mixture:
4 eggs
one large way-over-full Tablespoon of Daisy regular sour cream
about a tablespoon of water.

Beet Pancakes

Beet Pancakes by Helen Dickey

1 cup Hodgson Mills buckwheat flour
1 cup water (you may soak these two ahead of time if you want to)
1 and 1/2 cups grated beets
2/3 cup coconut (shredded, unsweetened and unsulphered)
2 Polyface med eggs

Mix and fry in oil or shortening. You may need to add a little more water to
make batter spread easier.
