Stir Fried Bread with Eggs (Meatless Recipe)

What do you do with the leftover bread?  Are you bored of eating the usual bread with just butter and jam? Have you been always scratching your head what to have for breakfast?  Or something simple and healthy for your kids to bring to school? Or may be just a simple lunch for yourself?  Or supper?

Well, I should thank Sri of Love2cook Malaysia for this simple and yet very yummylicious dish.  It does sound a bit weird but when comes to the taste, it's not weird at all.  In fact, I am so happy that finally I managed to cook this dish.  Just had this for lunch (have yet to do the washing and luckily my girls are doing the washing for me NOW) and just couldn't wait any longer to share this to all my dear readers as I know you all will be glad to see this recipe.  It's so simple and you can have it anytime you like.  The main ingredients are the eggs and bread.  Be creative with the additional ingredients or just add any of your preference ingredients.  Once again thanks to Sri of Love2cook Malaysia for the idea of stir frying bread.  I added whatever is available and phew.... yummy yummy...
Ingredients :
- 6 eggs (beaten with a dash of salt and pepper)
- 6 slices of plain bread (cut into small pieces)
- 5 fresh Swiss button mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 tomato (cut)
- 1 big onion (sliced)
- 6 stalks of Chinese chives/kuchai (cut)
- some Thai basil
- enough oil or butter (I used Ghee as I still have it from my previous Bubur Lambuk)

Seasonings : (to taste)
- salt and pepper (mix with the beaten egg)
- soy sauce
Method :
1)  Heat oil or butter in wok.  
2)  Add all the ingredients except bread, beaten egg and basil.  Stir fry until fragrant.

3)  Push the mixed ingredients to the side of the wok.  Add the beaten egg.
4)  When the egg is thickened (not set), mix the ingredients with the egg and scramble  them together over low heat.

5)  Then, add pieces of bread and basil.  Stir fry until fragrant.
6)  Turn off the heat.  Add a dash of soy sauce.  Stir and mix well.
7)  Dish out and serve.
Serve it with your favourite chili or tomato sauce
Isn't it easy and yummy?  Try this for your kids.

Sweet Bitter Gourd Porridge (Meatless Recipe)

Have you ever heard or tried cooking porridge with bitter gourd? Sounds weird, isn't it? This dish is the result of my 'spur of the moment' recipe. I wasn't feeling well and wanted to eat something simple and refreshing and yet feeling lazy to do all the preparation, cooking, washing, mopping, etc. Then I realized that my homemade salted duck eggs are due for 'harvest' (exactly 21 days) and I was so excited to try it. Ahaa... let's have plain porridge with salted eggs... but...I doubt my children would like it just with salted eggs! So, while 'ransacking' my fridge, I found 1 miserable bitter gourd which had ripened! BUT... I don't want to do any frying..... So, my weird idea and 'lazy mode' is the result of this porridge. Guess what???? Surprisingly, it's quite delicious and not bitter at all but slightly sweet due to the Chinese Wolfberries (and the bitter gourd was fully ripened!) So, if you are curious how you are going to react to this weird porridge, just give this a try.
Get a ripe bitter gourd if you don't like the bitter taste.

Ingredients :
- 1.5 cup rice (I used brown rice)
- 1 bitter gourd - use a spoon to discard the seeds (washed and sliced thinly)
- 2 tbsp fresh wood ear mushroom (washed and sliced thinly) - you can use dried ones
- 1 tbsp Chinese Wolfberries (washed)
- 1 tbsp shredded ginger

Seasonings : (to taste)
- salt
- soy sauce
- miso
- sesame oil

Method :
1)  Wash rice and add water accordingly; as to your usual porridge requirement.  Cook porridge at medium high heat. 
2)  When the porridge is semi-cooked, add bitter gourd and wood ear.  I added hot water as my measurement of water was not accurate.  Cover.
3)  Let it boil for about 5 minutes and lower the heat to medium low. Add shredded ginger and slow cook for about 1/2 hour or until the porridge is ready.

4)  Add the Chinese Wolfberries and salt to taste.  Stir and mix well.  Turn off the heat.  Cover and let it stand for about 20 to 30 minutes before it's ready to be served.
Season it with soy sauce and some sesame oil.  Have it with homemade salted duck eggs.
Or if you don't like salted egg, then what about some miso?  It's yummy too :)

Or, like me, have it both; miso and homemade salted duck eggs and seasoned with a dash of soy sauce and sesame oil. You must be wondering how 'salty' am I!!! Well, NO, just nice as I added a bit of everything!
Do give this porridge a try if you DARE to be different! hahahaha...

Healthy Grilled Cheesy Egg Sandwich

This is a very simple yet healthy sandwich which I used to make it for breakfast.  My children like it very much especially with tomato sauce and some fresh cucumber or tomatoes.  

Ingredients : (This is for 1 serving)
- 2 slices of bread

- 1 egg
- 1 slice of cheddar cheese
- butter
- soy sauce
- pepper

Method :
1)  Heat about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of butter (to taste) in a pan over medium heat.  I used Happy Call Pan.
2)  Place bread in the pan. (In fact I made 2 rounds for 4 servings. The above photos are for 2 servings whereas the above recipe is for 1 serving.  So, adjust according to your requirement).

3)  Bread an egg on top of the bread.  
4)  Drizzle some soy sauce and pepper on top of the egg according to taste.
5)  Place a slice of cheese on top of the egg.
6)  Place another slice of bread on top of the cheese.  Close the lid and slow grilled over low medium heat.
7)  Grilled until both sides are golden brown and cheese is melted but the yolk is half-cooked or fully-cooked (depending on individual's preferences).
8) Your healthy sandwich is ready to be served.
Look at the yolk... I like it to be about 80% cooked.
