Student Survival – Eggs!

When it comes to cheap and cheerful food in the student kitchen you can always rely on finding eggs in the fridge. They are the ultimate convenience food and packed full of protein, vitamins and minerals. There are so many ways to use them. Eat them on their own or have them in a mixed dish. Here are our student survival tips and favourite ways to eat eggs!

• Omelettes. One of the quickest and easiest meals you can make. An omelette is essentially a beaten egg cooked very quickly on a high heat. The best thing is that you can add ingredients to your taste. Want it plain, no problem. Extra ham and cheese… go for it, the options are limitless!

• Pancakes. Pancake Day has come and gone but like an omelette, there are a great range of both savoury and sweet options to go for (my favourite has to be chocolate spread… YUM!) A basic pancake mix is beaten eggs, plain flour, milk and a pinch of salt whisked together.

• Fried/scrambled/poached/boiled. Any of these methods of cooking eggs are great with toast and make a quick and easy meal be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

• Bake a cake. Eggs are a binding ingredient in baking recipes and there are all sorts or sweet and savoury treats you can make from cookies and cakes to Yorkshire puddings!

• Egg fried rice. A Chinese staple, this is very quick and easy to make and is a super filling meal. In a wok stir fry veggies of your choice, add cooked rice and stir. Make a well in the middle of the pan and add your egg then scramble it all together with a dash of Chinese 5 spice.

• If none of these rock your taste buds there are always chocolate eggs at Easter!
