Breakfast in a jiffy!!


Running late in the morning? ....well, happens to me quite quite often....on most occasions, I have this tremendous urge to skip breakfast altogether or just gulp down a cupfull of tea with a Marie. But there are days when, the stomach grumbles in protest and asks for something filling.

This is for such late yet hungry mornings....when cooking up in a jiffy is the name of the game....
Bread and Microwaved Poached Egg with my personal touch!!! ;))

Total time would be less than 10 minutes even if you count the time taken to chop the onion and chilli.

Ingredients :
*Egg - 1
*Wheat bread - 1 slice (as per your requirement)

A. To be added to the egg
*Finely chopped onions - 1/2 small onion (I keep 3-4 onions chopped in an air tight container in the fridge)
*Chopped Green chilli - 1
*Ginger paste/juice - 1/4 tsp
*Salt to taste
*Pepper - 1/2 tsp
*Chilli flakes - a pinch (optional)

Procedure :
1. Put the bread slice/s in the preset toaster.
2. Break an egg in a small microwaveable bowl. Take care not to break the yolk
3.Garnish the egg with all ingredients at 'A'
4. Microwave for a minute (maximum). You may cover it with a microwave proof plastic cling film.
5. Butter the toast. (Optional....these days I resist the temptation and refrain from buttering the toast!)

The breakfast of Bread and Poached Egg is READY and you're done in less than 10 minutes flat!!

Brown Bread, Egg and a cup of Darjeeling Tea...
that's a quick and healthy breakfast for me!!!

So here it goes to the Blogevent 'SHOW ME YOUR RECIPE' EVENT hosted by Divya Vikram of DIL SE... !!

simple and scrumptious!! good idea of keeping the chopped onions in the fridge...always helps when running late!

Pradip Biswas said...

beautiful idea. But be careful with cut onions. Even if they are stored in fridge in air tight container do not store it for longer time.

Woow.this a quick fix for late risers and have to rush!! amazing..thnks for sahring

SGD said...

@Imp'sM-Thanks and thanks for stopping by!
Yes storing ginger, garlic paste, chopped onions, pureed tomato do making cooking less of a head ache!

@PB-Thanks so much! You are right....too long storage of onions do give out an unpleasant odour. I chop & store enough to last me 2 days....

@Rush-So glad you liked it!
