Share the joy

We are crazy about eggs in this house {I’m pretty sure I’ve told you that about 100 times already!}, but everyone in our house LOVES eggs.  We go through around 2 trays a week and eat eggs made every way imaginable, a couple of times a week for breakfast, sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner.

We all know we shouldn’t miss breakfast, but research has shown that close to 400k adult kiwis skip breakfast Monday to Friday!  Thats mental, I’d actually wither and die if I skipped my morning meal!  My fave go-to recipe for quick eggs in the morning is Microwave Scrambled Eggs which I’ve shared with you before, but sometimes even 4 minutes is just not enough time to stop and chow.  If you know you’ve got a busy morning coming up, why not whip up a batch of these yummy mini frittatas the night before, they are great hot or cold, and you and the kids will have no excuse to leave the house running on empty!  This recipe can also be found online at www.eggs.org.nz along with dozens more!
