Tip No. 2: Eggs are your best friend, learn how to cook them.

Updated: Nov 28, 2019

Eggs are cheap, versatile and when done well delicious. There also a fantastic source of protein and fats - both vital macro-nutrients in a healthy diet.


Below are some mini-tips on how to master some common ways of cooking eggs:


1. Fried Eggs

Non-crispy: Use butter, cook in a frying pan on a low heat and put a saucepan lid over the egg to make sure there's no runny white (2-3 minutes), serve with avocado and hot sauce.

Crispy: Use sunflower oil, use a rounded bottom dish (a wok is best) so that the egg is submerged in the oil, medium-high heat (1-2 minutes). Serve on a fried rice dish.


2. Poached eggs

For perfect poached eggs with minimum fuss get an egg poacher they're a god send, put a little bit of salted butter in the cup for extra flavour. Throw this bad boy on whatever the f*** you want - versatility.

3. Soft-boiled eggs

This is cause for controversy as many different people have different timings, I like to put boil the eggs for 5 minutes. Best in egg and soldiers, or put in a soy sauce bath and then fridge it to use in salads, noodles or anything you want really.


4. Scrambled eggs

Use butter in a small saucepan, keep it moving, add a little bit of cream, cheese and chives to push it that little bit further.


Let me know how you get on.
