This is how my brain works: eggs are great for protein, but they are also bad for hearty/circulationy things because of their high nasty fat content. How can I make them better? I know! GARLIC!

Garlic Scrambled Eggs

Meal: Breakfast
Serves: One
Fatteningness: lots

  • Two eggs
  • Butter
  • One clove of garlic*
  • Black pepper
  • Something to serve the eggs on - toast is traditional, but I used potato waffles

  • Finely (very finely) chop or crush the garlic
  • Slowly heat the butter in a saucepan; when it's stopped frothing add the garlic and take it off the heat so it cooks out really slowly
  • Put your bread/waffles in the toaster.
  • Break your eggs directly into the pan, put the pan back on the heat, and stir constantly with a wooden spoon
  • Grind the pepper into the cooking eggs
  • Keep stirring
  • Remove the pan from the heat about 30 seconds before the eggs are cooked; you don't want them overdone and they keep cooking in the pan.
  • Plate up your toast/waffles and put the eggs on top
  • Eat
  • Enjoy breathing all over your collegues all day
  • Enjoy farting eggy AND garlicky farts all night

* anybody who thinks I would ACTUALLY use a mere one clove of garlic in this has never met me. I generally use at least 3. At least.

For a less healthy (and less vegetarian) alternative, slice some cooking chorizo, fry them in the pan on gentle heat until crispy and the lovely red fat has rendered, and then scramble the eggs in that fat using the above method. :o)

The difference is that cooking chorizo isn't cured so you have to cook it, while you can eat cured chorizo uncooked like salami etc. but when you cook the uncured variety, you don't get as much fat out of it and it's tougher.
[personal profile] ginasketch is a huge fan of chorizo scrambled eggs, too.

The German sausage range is almost impossible to count, while there are certain broad categories - cured, cooked, smoked, poached, hardness (this isn't getting any better, is it?), type and cut of meat - recipes and also types vary hugely from region to region and every butcher has his own recipes, too (part of the Master butcher exam is a new sausage recipe).

Make a giant pie crust.
Fill with mini Melton Mowbrays. Pack around them with extra sausagemeat.

Yeah, I'll give it a go.

You might have a point. I've got a better idea: pork pie cake.

Pfft, the fat/cholesterol in eggs is the good kind of cholesterol. ;)

Like bacon, everything's better with garlic!

Welllllll...you got me there. And I notice now that you don't specify the amount of butter. lol

I don't think I've ever seen potato waffles over on this side of the pond, though. Plenty of potato pancakes in the Kosher section but not waffles.

You and garlic really are sitting in a tree, aren't you?

I am totally trying this as soon as I get chance, with the possible exception of your last step.

That might work. "Any last words?" *HAAAAAAAHHH* And then you can just walk off scot-free, neatly stepping over the executioner and assembled dignitaries on your way out.

Alternatively you could request a last cigarette and go out like Agnes Nutter.
