Eggs are the most convenient and loved breakfast all across the globe. In the past I have posted a lot of Egg Breakfast recipes on my blog .In the west these eggs are often accompanied with Hash Browns which are Fried Crispy Potatoes. I am a little uncomfortable with fried stuff so I decided to fuse both of these in one healthy avatar. These Crispy Potato baskets were baked to perfection in my oven, you can also use air frier.


You can top it up with crispy bacon to make it even more naughtier. The feeling of eating a sumptuous breakfast without feeling guilty cannot be expressed in words. I have been eating clean for a while now and the results are beginning to show. I feel more energetic, fresh and younger 😉 If you wanna live a healthy life start with clean healthy eating and regular exercise for 20 minutes a day. There is nothing in this world which can stop you from becoming fit except temptation. 🙂 

1. Wash and peel potatoes.



2. Grate them using a grater into thin but long shreds. Put the shredded potatoes in a bowl of cold water so that do do not turn black.



3. Rigrously wash the potatoes under running water for a couple of minutes to remove its starch.

4. Soak out the water and place the potatoes in a bowl. Add an egg, salt and pepper. You can even add shredded. Cheddar Cheese to make it more interesting and delicious. I wanted to keep it low cal so gave cheese a pass. 🙁 Having said that I feel sad.




5. Combine everything with a spoon.

6. Generously grease some bake proof Ramekins with oil*. You can  even use non stick muffin tray. Spread a spoonful of potato mix all over the ramekins in one thin layer. Press with your fingers to form a nest. Let the potato strands poke out of the bowl. Do not overfill the ramekins or else as they will not become crisp on baking. Bake them in a preheated oven on 225 degree Celsius (Learn more about Oven Temperatures and Conversions) for about 20 minutes until they have crisped up. 



7. In the meanwhile chop some onions and add some oil in a pan. Saute them till they become brown.




8. Add a spoonful of  Sour Cream  and Sauteed Onions on top of the baked potatoes.



9. Break an egg in each ramekin and season with salt and pepper. Bake it in in preheated oven for 15 minutes till the egg white is set while yelow still runny.



10. Let it sit for 5-7 minutes then run a sharp knife around the ramekin and carefully remove the hash brown basket and serve in a platter. You can pair it with crispy bacon and a hot cup of Coffee.

We are an egg loving family. For us our breakfast has to be with eggs but the same old omelette and fried eggs can be boring at times. So when I picked up this Polenta from SOS organics I was keen to make something with it. Polenta is widely used in Italy as a porridge. Its also known as Corn Semolina. The corn is coarsely ground in a mill and is used widely in place of wheat and rice. Its excellent for those people with gluten allergies. 

This is not exactly an elaborate recipe post as you are used to seeing on my blog but its an interesting breakfast idea which can be made in a jiffy and which is utterly delicious and nutritious. You must be well aware by now what emotions I have with respect to Eggs. I have recently come across high protein, organic and nutritious Eggs from Eggee. And trust me I never had better eggs than this in India. If you can lay your hands on Eggee I insist you try any recipe with it and you will feel the difference in taste and texture. Earlier I had posted a few other egg breakfast recipes on blog like Spinach Mushroom Quiche, Italian Frittata with Mushrooms and SpinachShakshoukaWrapped French Toast Mexican Casserole Eggs. However, this combination of simple fried or poached egg with polenta and pesto is a killer. If you are looking for homemade Italian Basil Pesto  you can try here. Nevertheless, you can buy in a jar. Just cook your polenta following the directions below wand assemble everything together.


1. For polenta, pour water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Add polenta and simmer it for 20-25 minutes till the polenta is cooked and has absorbed water.




2. Take it off the flame and season with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly and set aside for assembly.




3. Fry eggs. If you like you can even poach them.


4. You can make your own pesto by using fresh ingredients and you can follow this recipe. Now in order to plate this dish ladle some Polenta in a large serving bowl, garnish with Pesto and olive oil and place your fried egg in the centre resting on the bed of Polenta and pesto. You can even garnish with pine nuts.

I had never tasted Frittata until one night I saw a chef preparing it on a show featuring on TLC. I was smitten by it in its very first sight. It looked simply irresistible. It was almost time for dinner and me and my husband were still wondering what to eat. And then we decided we will make frittata. Although its a breakfast dish but nothing stopped us from having it for dinner. I chopped some mushrooms, bell pepper and Olives and soon we were sitting with Frittata  on our dinner table. It was oh sooo delicious!

Frittata is similar to Omelette but still quite distinct. Its cooked like Omelette but for a longer time and then baked on setting. It is somewhat a crustless Quiche. It originated in Italy but many counties have similar egg dishes in their cuisine. It literally means ‘Fried’. It is usually divided into slices and eaten hot or cold and even accompanied with a bowl of salad, or beans or bread. You can add anything of your choice along with eggs like mushroom, spinach, bell pepper, feta cheese, beacon, sausage etc. And since egg is the main component in this dish its important to use good quality eggs like Eggee. The frittata came out pillowy soft. The taste, the softness was incredible. 

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F (Learn more about Oven temperatures and Conversions). Chop some mushrooms,capsicum, zucchini, fresh leaves of spinach, previously washed. Thinly slice yellow bell pepper and Olives. Keep aside.

2. Add little oil in an iron skillet, which you can bake it in oven. Add mushrooms and saute them until little brown. 


3. Add bell pepper and saute till its soft yet still crisp.


4. Add chopped spinach.


5. Grate Parmesan Cheese and Cheddar Cheese and keep aside. 



6. Whisk four eggs in a jar. Season with salt and pepper. Also add red chili flakes if you like it little hot. Pour it over the sauteed vegetables in the baking dish.


7. Sprinkle on top grated cheese and spread the sliced olives.

8. Let it keep cooking undisturbed for 5-7 minutes or until the bottom of the eggs is set. Transfer to a preheated oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until brown and everything comes together and nothing remains runny. Run a heat proof silicon spatula under the frittata to ease removing it from the baking dish. Serve hot.

Pancakes are the most delicious breakfast which can be made in a jiffy. They are also known as Hotcakes, Griddlecakes or Flapjacks. They can be sweet or savoury. Each country has its own style of making them with unique toppings or ingredients. Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are a classic combination. Filling, Fast and yet so tasty.

I had so many apples which needed to be put to some use. I made apple bread, apple chutney, Apple Lapsi and what not still they were plenty. So I utilized few of them to make these amazing pancakes. The cinnamon gives the pancakes that divine flavour that its difficult to describe in words. You must try to understand it.

This is kid’s favourite. Its a good nutrition for them and they even relish the taste. Oh before I forget recently, I contributed few of my recipes to Indusladies to an event for 100 Kids Lunch Box Recipes. They got published in an e-book. You can download the e-book here for some delicious recipes.


1. Whisk an egg in a bowl.



2. Add melted butter to the whisked egg.


3. Add milk and combine. Keep aside.


4. Wash, core and peel apples. Grate them using a grater. Add them to the wet ingredients. Keep aside.




5. In a separate bowl add All purpose Flour and Baking Soda. Combine evenly.



6. Add ground cinnamon and brown sugar. Combine.




7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine.




8. Heat a griddle and butter it well.


9. Pour one ladle or 1/4 cup of pancake batter in the center of the griddle. Do not spread, it should spread on its own. If it doesn’t, it needs more milk to liquefy it further to achieve perfect consistency.


10. When you see holes appearing on the surface of cakes its time to flip. It should take somewhere between 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, loosely cover with some Aluminium Foil so it doesn’t get dry and cold. Repeat with remaining batter.



11. Serve hot with maple syrup, chocolate syrup, whipped cream or even custard. You can even throw in some nuts or fruits.

Pan Cakes are my all time favourite Breakfast. And when they are with Fresh Blueberries, I don’t need anything else. They are easy and soft and ready in no time. The buttermilk makes them extra fluffy. You can make instant buttermilk at home, You don’t need to plan in advance. Just put few ingredients together and you have a wholesome healthy breakfast. You can top your pancakes with Maple syrup, Honey, Caramel Sauce or simply butter. You can even put fresh chopped fruits before drizzling the syrup.

My kiddo is just like me he likes pan cakes but loves blueberries. So the combination of blueberry and pan cakes becomes irresistible.  


1. In a bowl put together All purpose Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Sugar and Salt. Whisk them together and set aside.



2. In a smaller bowl dust the blueberries with few spoonful of flour mix. Set aside.


3. Separate the egg yolk from the egg whites.


4. In a third bowl combine egg yolk, melted butter and buttermilk. Whisk them together and set aside. You can make your own instant buttermilk at home. You can follow the recipe in link.


5. In another bowl whisk the egg whites to make stiff peaks. You can use a hand whisker or electric whisker. 


6. Pour the buttermilk mixture in the flour mix an whisk everything until evenly combined. Gently fold in egg whites and blueberries. You have be very gentle in folding as the egg whites should not deflate.



7. Preheat a non stick griddle or flat bottom pan over medium high heat and brush it with butter or you can even spray with cooking oil. I used butter. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter on the griddle using a ladle.


8. After about 2-3 minutes you will spot some bubbles on the top, specially around edges. This is the time to flip it and cook it on the other side.


9. Cook the other side also for 2 minutes or till it has acquired golden colour.


Serve hot with Maple Syrup or Honey or Caramel Sauce. Top it up with fresh fruits.

I tried this recipe in Mexico in a very popular restaurant over a breakfast rendezvous with my friend Teresa. Oh! by the way its her birthday today! This blog is dedicated to her. 🙂 Coming back to the topic, the recipe was simple yet fantastic. Although I am not a huge fan of tortillas, but they tasted so good with them. I decided to make them at home using my wisdom (yeah I am also laughing while writing this :P). It has a Mexican blend of Chili Poblano, Queso Panela,White Onions and Mushrooms. Oh these are known as Casserole Eggs and in Spanish Huevos en Cazuela. Usually, casserole recipes are oven made but I made my version of this recipe on stove top which is equally good. If you can lay your hands on Chili Poblano give it a try today!


1. Wash, roast and peel Chili Poblano and cut into bite size pieces. (Learn How to Roast and Peel Chili Poblano?) Set aside.

2. In a wok pour little oil and sauté onion still they become translucent . Add roasted pieces of chili poblano.



3. After sautéing chili add mushrooms and black olives, both drained. If using fresh mushrooms, you can saute them a little longer till they release their water. I preferred to use canned mushrooms and olives. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper.



4. Break in the eggs and mix them evenly with rest of the sauteed vegetables.

5. If you like spicy food, you can even sprinkle some red chili flakes. Lastly, add cubed queso panela or paneer and mix well.



Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with toasted tortillas or bread.
