Scrambled eggs: recipes for happy marriages.
This conversation took place in my kitchen. An ordinary, commonplace, unremarkable and painfully familiar kitchen. At least, that’s how it seemed to me on this cloudy morning, until my old friend Mark shared his life philosophy with me.
– Look at the familiar with new eyes! – he urged me. – By the way, it’s allowed me to find something new in my spouse for eight years now! Down with the familiar and up with the unusual!
– Mark, that’s impossible,” I didn’t share his enthusiasm this morning. – What’s so unusual about breakfast every morning? I almost always have ham and eggs.
– That’s just great! Scrambled eggs are the kind of food that can provide a refreshing new experience. You can compare this dish to a woman you seem to know well. And a little nuance completely changes the idea of her.
Our conversation continued, and the morning no longer seemed so grey and mundane to me.
So, what’s the secret to Mark’s happy married life? Here it is – the seven recipes for scrambled eggs. A metaphor that allows you to discover your beloved spouse in the image of seven different women.
First thing Monday morning. It’ll help you get in the mood for cheerfulness.
1. Beautiful Wife
You will need 5 eggs, approx 100g of finely chopped raw meat (pork or chicken), 60g of melted butter and 80ml of tomato sauce.
Take a large flat frying pan. Grease it with butter.
Salt and pepper the meat and make 5 rings of it in the pan. Put an egg in each ring. Spoon some melted butter on top of each egg yolk. Place on a low heat and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes.
When served on a plate, pour a little tomato sauce around the egg.
The next morning you will be amazed.
2. The spring wife, bringing freshness into the house
Take 3 eggs, 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil or 25g of butter, 50g of feta cheese, salt, red pepper, some fresh mint.
Whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of cold water, add the finely chopped mint. Crumble the cheese with a fork and add to the heated oil. Stir for 30 seconds, then add the eggs and fry for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Sprinkle it with red pepper and serve with a tomato or fresh cucumber salad.
On the third morning your gourmet spouse will find
3. Peasant Wife.
You will need 5 eggs, 2 or 3 slices of rye bread, 100g of lard, 8 small pickled logs, rosemary, butter for frying bread, salt and pepper to taste.
Dice the bread and fry in butter. Cut the bacon into long chunks and fry without butter. When there is enough fat in the pan, add onion. After 3 minutes add the croutons, spread out evenly in the pan and beat the eggs while being careful not to damage the yolk. Sprinkle with the rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook with the lid on until the whites are cooked through. Serve the dish directly in the pan.
The fourth morning may be rainy. But your eyes will be delighted.
4. Wife in pearls
You will need 6 beaten eggs, 150g of fresh caviar, 20g of butter, 2 tablespoons of finely chopped dill, some lemon or orange zest, salt and white pepper to taste.
It is best to use fresh caviar from any freshwater fish for this dish, but canned will do. If the caviar is fresh, salt it well, add pepper, whisk with a fork or whisk and add some lemon or orange zest.
Mix the caviar and beaten eggs with the dill. Melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the eggs on a low heat under a lid for about 5 minutes.
Serve with lemon slices.
Friday. Your heart will win again
5. Wife crying tears of happiness
Take 5 onions, 125g butter, 1 tablespoon flour, 200g sour cream or cream, a bunch of parsley and coriander. Also 4 eggs and vegetable oil for the eggs.
First prepare the sauce for this dish, as it requires a long slow boil so that all the extraneous flavours go away. Melt the butter over a low heat in a bowl. Cut the onions into thick half-circles and add them to the butter. Stir until all onions are coated with oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let the onions simmer on a very low heat.
After 8-10 minutes, when the onions are soft and have a pale golden hue, sprinkle in the flour and mix thoroughly until the flour and butter are a smooth mass.
Pour cream or homemade sour cream into the onion mixture. Stir constantly until the sauce comes to a boil. Then reduce the heat and allow the sauce to simmer for 25-30 minutes until the flour has cooked thoroughly.
While the sauce is simmering, fry the eggs on both sides. Finely chop the parsley and coriander, add to the sauce which has been removed from the heat and stir to combine. Place the eggs on a plate and pour the sauce over them.
Saturday morning delight
6. A naked wife in a golden mink coat.
Take 3 eggs, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, 1 head of garlic, salt, red pepper, 2 tablespoons sour cream.
Whisk the sour cream, add the garlic mashed with a pinch of salt and stir.
Sprinkle the glazed pancakes with red pepper and pour the mixture over them.
Sprinkle the grated hard cheese on top, remove from the heat and cover. After 3 minutes serve.
Sunday. In front of you.
7. A lady sitting on a soft sofa.
You will need 4 medium eggs, 50 g grated cheese, 100 ml sour cream, spices to taste.
Carefully separate the egg whites from the yolks.
Whisk egg whites with a fork, add sour cream and cheese, mix thoroughly.
Spoon the mixture with a spoon onto a hot frying pan as pancakes. Then gently place egg yolks on top.
Cook on a low heat for about 3 minutes, then place the lid on and remove from the heat. After 2 minutes the dish is ready.
