All the Exciting Ways You Can Eat and Drink Your Eggs

July 28, 2022

I’m begging Nigerian youths to try something outside the box of bread or indomie and egg. I know it’s easier and faster (and cheaper) to just eat certain meals in particular ways sometimes, but once in a while, at least do something different with your food. Do you know all the many different things you can do with eggs? Let me tell you.

Noodles and egg frittata

Indomie and egg but make it fancy. If you have Indomie in your house, get up and make this meal now now. I promise you’ll come back and thank me later.

Corned beef omelette 

Egg and corned beef was something I discovered one day when I was looking for what to eat and I was tired of sunny side up and scrambled eggs. At that time, I just thought to add the most random thing I saw in the store: corned beef. I didn’t know it was an actual thing until I found recipes online. There’s a recipe I found that I really like.

Plantain and egg fritatta

A very popular meal that needs to be made more often. Instead of eating plantain and egg separately, why not combine them? I wish plenty of dollars upon the person that thought of this. There are two ways you can make it. You can either cook it on the stove or bake it in the oven. They both slap.

Egg tomato pasta

The Nigerian woman in me had to add a pasta recipe. It even tastes too good for it not to be here. It’s a very simple meal you can cook with ingredients you already have in your house.

Egg salad sandwich 

Release yourself from the shackles of the regular bread and eggs and try something new. I like to deceive myself with this recipe by saying I’m eating healthy because it’s a “salad”.

Egg smoothie

Wait first. Before you roll your eyes and say that I’ve come again with another strange recipe, you should know that a lot of smoothies do have eggs inside. Adding eggs to them adds much needed protein to your diet. You can make this smoothie with any fruit of your choice.

Gin Fizz

This is a cocktail that is mixed by adding egg whites to gin. I promise you it doesn’t taste as weird as it sounds. When making it, if you don’t have the simple syrup, just use honey instead.

Gin sour

Another great cocktail made from gin and egg whites. The major difference between this one and the cocktail above is the fact that you’re adding bitters.

Egg shawarma 

Instead of chicken shawarma, try this instead. If you want to make it a little healthier, don’t add mayonnaise, or replace mayo with Greek yoghurt. I try this every once in a while when I have shawarma bread in my kitchen.

Boiled egg pasta salad 

The only type of salad I truly like to eat. I’ve eaten this boiled pasta salad a gazillion times and I’m still not tired of it. If you’re not trying any other thing on this list, try this one.

Egg sandwich

I know I said release yourself from the shackles of bread and egg but this one is different. This is the ultimate sandwich because there’s fried egg above and below the bread. Check out the recipe and see what I’m talking about.
