Three ways with eggs! Cals ranging from 200pp to 210pp

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Eggs are a staple ingredient in my diet even though I never used to eat them, I now adore them! They are good for you, packed with lots of nutrients as well as being very filling, and a great fuel food.

Here are three of my fav weekend eggy breakfasts.

My bread of choice at the moment is Hovis seed sensation wholemeal at 110 calories per slice, the crumpets I use are Kingsmill at 100 calories per crumpet.

1 large egg
1 slice of seeded whole meal bread

1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add your egg and set a timer for 6 minutes.

2. Toast your bread and cut width wise ensuring each piece is small enough to dunk into the yolk.

3. When the egg is cooked run under cold water to cook the outside and remove the top to uncover a yummy runny golden yolk

Dunk your dippers and enjoy, remember a spoon to scrap out the egg white. Nom! X
