1 large onion 1,2kg potato, unpeeled 100g cheddar cheese, grated 100g mozzarella cheese, grated 10ml garlic salt 60ml butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 220℃ and line a 25cm x 37cm baking sheet with baking paper. Grate the onion and potato on the coarse side of a box grater. Transfer to a clean tea towel. Wrap the grated veg like a candy by twisting both ends. Hold the towel over a sink and wring it as firmly as you can to squeeze out any liquid. Add the onion, potato, both cheeses and garlic salt to a large bowl and mix through. Drizzle the butter over the mixture and now mix together with your hands so that all of the mixture is evenly dispersed and covered in butter. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking sheet but do not compact it by pressing down. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
Slice the ends off the tomatoes so that you have straight edges. Place the tomato on one of the straight edges and halve it horizontally. Cut out the flesh on the inside so that you are left with 2 tomato rings. Place a frying pan on medium-high heat, add a splash of vegetable oil and place the tomato rings in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes, until warm and flip around. Now break an egg in each tomato ring, season with salt and pepper and place a lid on the pan. Cook until the egg is set to your liking and serve at once.
Trim the crusts from each slice of bread and then roll each flat with a rolling pin. Add 45ml butter to a heatproof bowl and melt/soften it in the microwave oven. Add the brown sugar and 5ml cinnamon and mix together. You are looking for a spreadable consistency. Spread each slice of bread with a thin layer of the sugar mixture. Roll the slices up in a tight roll. Add the eggs and milk with a pinch of salt to a shallow bowl and whisk together. Add the granulated sugar and other 5ml cinnamon to another shallow bowl and mix through. Place a non-stick pan on medium heat and add the remaining 45ml butter. Now dip one of the bread rolls in the egg mixture and place in the warm pan. Repeat with the rest. Fry until golden, turn until browned all over. Remove the rolls from the pan and roll each in the cinnamon sugar while warm. Serve with a good cup of coffee.
A sweet omelet may be a strange/unusual idea but this traditional omelet with vanilla and fresh berries will surprise and delight your tastebuds!
3 eggs, separated 30ml + 30ml sugar 1ml + 1ml salt 45ml flour 125ml cream 2,5ml vanilla 80ml strawberry/raspberry jam fresh berries icing sugar, for dusting
Preheat your oven to 220℃ and line the base of a 22cm loose-bottom cake tin with baking paper. Spray with cooking spray and set aside. Add the egg whites to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Set aside. Add the egg yolks, 30ml sugar and 1ml salt to a separate mixing bowl. Beat on high speed for 2-3 minutes until you have a very thick, very pale mixture that falls from the whisk in ribbons. Fold a third of the egg whites into the mixture, add the rest and fold in until just combined. Sift the flour over and fold in with a metal spoon until smooth. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tin and gently smooth the top. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. The omelet should be fluffy and golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre should come out clean. Add the cream, vanilla, 30ml sugar and 1ml salt to a mixing bowl and whisk until medium-stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until needed. Remove the omelet from the oven and remove the ring of the cake tin. Invert the omelet onto a plate and gently peel off the baking paper. Allow to cool to room temperature. Spread the jam on half the omelet. Spread the cream over the jam and sprinkle over the fresh berries. Gently fold the omelet over. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
