She might be the stepdaughter of one of the most powerful media moguls in Washington, but Lucy Royall is no pampered princess—she’s making her own way as a junior reporter. But when congressional investigator Hayden Black accuses her stepfather of criminal wrongdoing, she shows her family loyalty and takes Hayden on.

An Eggstravaganza!

 

I have to admit something: I’m a very lucky girl. My husband makes our breakfast every day—without being asked, just because he loves to. And not just something slapped together, no. He makes Works of Breakfast Art. Omelettes made from organic eggs, with olives, fetta, and parsley from the garden. Scrambled eggs with oven roasted tomatoes and fresh basil, served with organic Turkish bread.

The picture is the omelette he made me on Valentine’s Day this year (hence the good china).

Which brings me to my second admission: I’m not fond of eggs. I eat them because I know they’re good for me and it’s what my husband likes to cook and eat.

Be careful what you wish for, right? I have a man who chefs up amazing breakfasts every single day, and I’m incredibly grateful, don’t get me wrong, but…

What I normally try to do is disguise the taste of eggs. I’ve tried chilli sauce—that works quite well. Extra fetta, olives and semi-dried tomatoes also usually do the trick. The home-grown herbs have a flavour strong enough to help.

Some days, he’ll make fluffy blueberry pancakes and serve with maple syrup or homemade Bircher muesli with orange juice and yoghurt. I live for those days. His belief in eggs, however, is strong enough that we still have them most of the time.

So I’m asking for suggestions: what’s your favourite omelette ingredient? What other ingredients can I use in an omelette to disguise the taste of eggs?

 

Ahh, a tricky one, Rachel. I love a good egg, especially eggs from home or farm chooks. They always have the best flavour. I made a frittata this week, with potatoes, chorizo, spinach and spring onions. Not a whole lot of eggy flavour there thanks to the chorizo.

What do you think, Feasters? What can Rachel hide that egg taste with? Help a damsel in distress. I’m sure you’ll have lots of clever ideas.
