I do love to make various types of scrambled egg dishes. Scrambled eggs on their own in the past used to be a great dish but got boring after a while or at least until I started adding more than just eggs to this dish. You can combine so many flavours and make so many great tasting dishes, you are limited only by your imagination. I love to add various cheeses to mine and different types of salamis as well as the odd vegetables and herbs here and there.
These sorts of dishes are not only tasty, they are also very fast to make and can offer a range of vitamins and minerals making them a great healthy go to if you are short on time.
Today’s recipe includes truffle infused salami, cheese, coriander and eggs to give it that Mediterranean feel and flavour. This sort of dish can be adjusted easily for your taste or merely adjusted to make a different tasting meal. For this recipe I didn’t add any salt or pepper as the salami already has plenty.
Salami contains vitamins B2, B3 and B12 which play an important role in the metabolism of the foods that we eat. Salami is high in fat but you will notice you don’t need much here you are mainly aiming for flavour rather than bulk.
Eggs are a great protein rich food and they also contain a fair amount of choline. This is a micronutrient that we need for normal liver and nerve function and brain development. It also plays a role in maintaining a healthy metabolism. If you are not taking this in sufficient amounts you can develop a higher risk of chronic liver damage. Eggs also contain vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant. It will also help maintain healthy vision, healthy skin, nerve function and fighting free radicals due to it’s antioxidant property. Vitamin D is something many off us don’t have enough of due to long work hours and the reduced sun exposure over the winter months. Eggs also contain vitamin D which is essential for bone health.
We all know that cheese contains calcium but did you know it also contains zinc which helps maintain a healthy immune system, is thought to improve testosterone production in men and reduce PMS symptoms in women.
Coriander is one of those gorgeous herbs that add a fantastic flavour to meals. It contains vitamin K which we need for healthy bones, teeth and hair as well as other useful vitamins and minerals.
So now you have more of an idea of the health benefits of this dish here is the recipe.
Scrambled Eggs with Truffle Infused Salami, Cheese and Coriander
Serves 1 – provides enough for a light meal.
3 medium eggs
24g delicately infused Italian truffle salami – pre sliced (I found this at Aldi)
1 tablespoon coriander
24g extra mature cheddar cheese
Weigh out the salami then stack the pieces onto of each other and cut into smaller pieces. Separate them out and set aside.
Wash, then chop the coriander.
Grate the cheese.
Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk well with a fork.
Place a small non stick frying pan on a medium heat.
Throw in the salami, top with the cheese then give it a stir.
Pour over the eggs and cook a little prior to adding in the coriander.
Once cooked through transfer into a bowl and serve.
What do you add to eggs to make them that bit more egg-citing?
