Before anything else, let me tell you that I’m not a great a cook. My skills (whether it be existing or not), are very limited to frying and making soup dishes. However, I love eating, eating out and learning how to cook dishes. If there were enough hours in the day, enrolling in a school with online cooking courses might be on the menu. I know how to make a mean sinigang na ribs with gabi but for the life of me I cannot perfect the taste of adobo.
Just a brief background. I love eggs. As in so in love with it I earned the nickname Eklok1 when I was little. Boiled, sunny side up, scrambled, kwek-kwek, you name it, I eat it. Well except for balut2 because I just can’t stand the embryo but I love penoy. Now that I learned some things around the kitchen, I experiment on cooking. We now stock herbs and spices in the kitchen just so I can fully experiment its taste. And I did just as that with my new egg recipe.
Pardon the rice and the obvious missing part of the egg, I was so tempted that I had to taste it first before I remembered taking a photo of it. I failed blankPixel’s tutorial.
This recipe serves 1 (or at least in my case.)
What you’ll need:
- 2 eggs
- 1 large plump tomato; sliced into small pieces
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil (adjust according to preference, we don’t have non-stick pan that’s why I use that much)
- 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil leaves
- salt and pepper to taste
- crack the eggs in a bowl, season according to your preferences, beat until its fluffy then set aside.
- in a pan, heat oil then cook the tomato and basil leaves in low heat so you can fully extract the tomato juice. don’t forget to also season the tomato and basil while cooking.
- once the tomato is cooked, pour the beaten eggs in the pan. cook the eggs according to your preference. In my case, I like it well done.
- serve hot with rice or bread.
The verdict? It tastes like Yellow Cab’s Garden Pizza. Imagine how good it would taste with cheese! I’ll have to try that next time.
What do you think of my herbed scrambled eggs? Let me know if you tried it. I’d like to hear what you think.
- Eklok is a character from Pilipino Funny Komiks
- Balut is a duck (or sometimes chicken) egg with half developed embryo. It is boiled then eaten out of the shell with vinegar or salt.
