Egg-cellent meals from Gizzi ErskineBy Emma
Gizzi Erskine launches a dozen Meals in Minutes with eggs
We know how tempting it is to eat pot noodles and pizzas instead of slaving over your oven, but does cooking really have to be that difficult? A new recipe collection by chef and TV presenter Gizzi Erskine will help busy cooks save precious minutes in the kitchen. The dozen recipes have a cooking time between just 1 and 12 minutes – making most quicker than the average TV ad break.
The new recipes will feature each week on The Student Guide website, as well as eggrecipes.co.uk/mealsinminutes, where you will find a selection available as step-by-step video guides presented by Gizzi. The Cook Yourself Thin presenter’s egg cookery secrets will also be revealed, from the timing required for a perfectly boiled egg through to faultless poaching and tips for sublime scrambled eggs.
The collection includes a three minute smoked salmon and Boursin omelette, Turkish eggs ready in five minutes, and an eight minute ‘Cheat’s’ Croque Madame. The recipes also use a variety of seasonal British produce including asparagus and salmon.
Gizzi says: “Buying British is important to me so I always look for the British Lion to make sure my eggs are produced to the highest standards of food safety.
“We all want to save time in the kitchen, but doing so without compromising on taste or quality of ingredients can be tricky. That’s where these recipes fill a gap, showing how easy it is to create a dozen delicious meals in just minutes. I’d encourage anyone to give the recipes a go!”
