To make heart shaped eggs, you will need:-
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup (125ml) egg whites
- 2 tablespoons of finely chopped spring onions
- 1 tablespoon of garden peas
- 3 tablespoons of finely chopped red capsicum
- 1 sheet of nori seaweed
- Salt and Pepper
- In Bowl No. 1 mix together 3 whole eggs, salt, pepper, spring onions and garden peas.
- In Bowl No. 2 mix together egg whites, salt, pepper and red capsicums.
- Wipe your pan with olive oil/coconut oil and place it on a medium heat
- Pour half of Bowl No. 1 into pan and leave it to set into a thin omelette
- Roll the omelette into a tub from right to left to make a thin long tube
- Push the egg tube over to the right hand side of the pan
- Repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 with Bowl No.2
- Pour into the pan the remaining egg mixtures in both bowls and place a sheet of nori seaweed on top. The heat will shrink the seaweed into the omelette
- Roll the omelette from right to left to make a thick long tube and leave your egg tube to cool for 10 minutes.
- 10. Slice the egg tube into half inch slices and further cut each piece diagonally
- 11. Place your egg cuts into heart shapes before dipping them in egg whites and placing them in a hot pan to stick the halves of the hearts together
Et Voila Heart Shaped Eggs!
