Over the weekend we used a lot of eggs which made me wonder; How do you know if an egg is bad?
One way is to fill a bowl with water and if the egg floats to the top it is bad. Cool right? If you crack an egg and it smells bad, it is probably not good.
You can do so many things with eggs. You can make egg salad, omelets, hard boiled eggs, devilled eggs, even fried eggs. You can make scrambled eggs - they are so easy. So eggs are very cool.
Over the weekend I made egg salad here is my recipe:
1 cup of mayonnaise
10-12 hard boiled eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Finely chopped chives
Finely chopped spring onion (green onion)
We also made pavlova - here is our recipe:
Pavlova - A kiwi desert
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice
2 tsp cornflour (corn starch)
Pre-heat oven to 350F
Beat egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form
Gradually add sugar while beating.
Continue beating until stiff.
Add remaining ingredients.
Turn mixture onto baking paper covered tray.
Shape into a circle.
Reduce oven temp to 284 F. Bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce oven tempt to 240 F and bake for 1 and 1/4 hours
DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN! Although I did when I was hunting for Easter eggs - ours turned out flat but yummy!
Let the oven cool completely before opening.
We have ours with whipped cream and sometimes a berry fruit salad.
