Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Muffins!

These are perfect if you want something tasty and quick to grab for breakfast! I know that I often skip breakfast which leads to me snacking on random things throughout the morning. The even greater thing about these are how simple they are to make too!

Ingredients

  •  200g Bacon Lardons
  • 12 eggs
  • Grated Cheese
    You will also need; a Muffin tray, bowl, fork and muffin cases!
    (This will make 12)

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees (Fan Oven)
  2. Place your muffin cases into the muffin tin and lightly spray with oil
  3. Fry your bacon lardons until they are cooked then separate them into the muffin cases!
  4. Put a sprinkle of cheese into each muffin case
  5. Crack all your eggs into a bowl and whisk it until they are all broken up and smooth

    img_7059(I added the bacon and cheese into the egg mix, this made it very difficult to get even amounts of bacon and cheese into the muffins, so I recommended doing  it the way explained here)

  6. Pour the egg mixture on top of the bacon & cheese being careful not to spill it everywhere!

  7. pop In the oven for approx. 15 mins, until the egg is fully cooked.

Food Revolution Day!

I know.. Food Revolution Day was the fifteenth of May, but it sure does need a good old look into!

I heard the fantastic song the other day when browsing through YouTube for a song to listen too and I came across the song that Ed Sheeran wrote for Food Revolution Day! If you haven’t heard it yet you should really listen to it and you can find it here!

The first thing that really struck me was what Jamie Oliver said (Sorry Rapped :P) in the first verse

Half the world is starving with too little to eat
And the other half die from being obese

This is so true.. and incredibly disgusting! Did you know that 42 million children under the age of five are either overweight or obese! How horible is that, the only people to blame for that is there parents! It made me feel sick when I read that statement! How could someone be so uncaring and blinded that they don’t see what they doing to there kids! It’s easy to see when your child is getting obese/overweight, and you are the ones who choose what you feed them! If you use the excuse that oh, but s/he wont eat the fruit/veg and prefers all the processed food… I’m sorry but a bit of tough love is going to go a long way! Would you rather your child has a harder life because they then go on to develop heart problems and the such and then dying early because you didn’t want to have your child crying at you because you wouldn’t give them that extra chocolate bar!

We need to teach our children how to cook, get them involved with the cooking in the kitchen and they will then enjoy the food more and will be learning life skills for whenever they are older! Rather than living off convenience food! There is a huge range of healthy dinners that can be cooked in the same time as convenience food, it just means you have to do something rather than just turning on the oven! Use it as a family bonding time and all cook together! Children today, are the first generation predicted to live shorter lives than there parents, how horrifying is that! We should be moving forward, not backwards!

The Food Revolution Day this year, is fighting to put compulsory practical food education on the school curriculum! I think this is a great thing! It will help children to start to learn about where there food comes from, whats in it, what is best for them and there children when they are older and how to cook lovely, healthy and tasty food!  We need to give our children and possibly our grandchildren the best life we can and providing them with these skills is desperately needed for our children to lead, happy, healthier and longer lifes!

Like Jamie Oliver says and i completely agree with;

This is every child’s human right!

From Jamie Oliver to Everyone;

If you can help me get millions of people to sign this petition, we can create a movement powerful enough to force all G20 governments to take action. Food education will make a difference to the lives of the next generations, so please help. I can’t do it without you.

So please; Sign the petition here then share it with your friends!
Lets kick obesity in the ass and give our children a better chance at life!

Green Thai Curry

I decided that I wanted to try and make something different for myself and the hubby! When I was in Wales visiting my family my aunt made this amazing Green Thai curry so I asked her for the recipe! Whenever I made it, it was also delicious so I thought I would share the recipe with you guys! It was off BBC Good Food! I don’t have a link to the recipe on there as she emailed it to me without the link! On the recipe I followed the numbers at the end in Brackets, this made 4 lots of the curry paste! So I froze three so that it is an easy meal to make whenever we fancy it again! I made it with chicken! I know some of the ingredients sound a little strange, but I got them all easily from a supermarket.

Here is the recipe for the curry paste;

Ingredients – enough paste for 4 ( x 4)


2-3 medium green chillies, de-seeded and roughly chopped ( 8 )
1 shallot, roughly chopped (1 large onion )
2.5cm/1in piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated (10cm )
1 garlic clove, crushed ( 4 )
small bunch of fresh coriander, stalks and roots attached ( large bunch )
1 lemongrass stalks, chopped ( 3 tsp from jar )
½ lime, grated zest and juice ( 2 )
4 kaffir lime leaves, torn into pieces (if unavailable, grated zest of ½ extra lime) ( 10 )
1.5cm piece galangal, peeled and chopped (use extra ginger if unavailable ) (2 tsp jar )
½ tbsp coriander seeds, crushed ( 4 tsp ground )
½ tsp ground cumin ( 2 tsp)
½ tsp black peppercorns, crushed ( 2 tsp from mill )
1 tbsp Thai fish sauce ( 4tbsp )
1½ tbsp olive oil (5 tbsp )

Method

Blitz everything together in a food processer or mix everything by hand using a pestle and mortar (or plastic bowl and end of a rolling pin if you dont have one of these either). By hand gives you a chunkier paste but the flavours are as good and it feels a bit more rustic

 

This is how my paste looked after it was all made!

Then I added it to a big saucepan, added a tin of coconut and brought it to the boil! After that then I added the chicken which I had previously diced and brought the paste down to a simmer! I then left that to simmer for half an hour.. and hey presto it was done and delicious! Even if i must say so myself!  So as you can see it is really a quick and easy meal once the paste has been made!

This is it cooking in the pot;

I then made some noddles and a nan to go along with it! Here is a picture of the finished thing;

I would love to hear if you guys make this and what you think of it! Enjoy! =]
