Chopped Up Egg – A Feel Good Egg Recipe

Eggs - Chopped egg recipe - FoodBlogs UK

Cheap recipes based around eggs are a great treat which are so simple to make. All you need is a pan of cold water, common ingredients from your kitchen and voila! Chopped Egg or “Chocked up egg”, as I once called it, can pick you up when you’re feeling under the weather or fill a small gap when a just a simple light bite is required.

Laying the foundations

To get the job done for 2 people (or one hungry sole), you’ll need 2 large eggs, butter, black pepper and salt.

Grab a small pan and add your eggs. Fill the pan with enough cold water to just cover the surface of the eggs and add to a hob with high heat. Take a pinch of salt and scatter it over the eggs.

Once the water starts to boil, set a timer for 7 minutes and reduce heat slightly and allow for the yolk to firm up. Don’t worry about a dry texture resulting from hard-boiled yolk as the butter will counter-act this.

When the time’s up, carefully remove the eggs from the pan using an egg spoon and take-care when removing the shells.

Add the eggs into a bowl, add butter (a couple of dollops should do it but, it’s up to you) and chop with a teaspoon until the butter mixes throughout.

Add some pinches of salt and black pepper then chop through again to even it through.

Now eat!

That’s it! You can add this as a filling between 2 pieces of toast with a thin slice of cheese. Or you eat it like it is as a small tasty snack.

Still hungry? Next time use another egg or 2 medium eggs.
