Simple Egg Sandwich Filling

This is my quick and easy lunch solution, especially if I have minimal ingredients at home! My husband and boys love this!! My husband loves his very SIMPLE egg sandwiches (if he makes it himself it is literally just eggs + store bought mayo) however he also loves it with the extra spring onions and occasionally with 1 teaspoon of Keens Curry Powder.

Hash Brown Quiche

Thought I would make something savoury for a change!!

The boys/husband loooove this, super tasty and pretty much hits the spot with potato, eggs, bacon and cheese! Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner with a fresh garden salad.

Place blitzed potato in steaming basket and press/squeeze out excess liquid by hand
 
(easiest to do this in the sink!)
 
Add onion and bacon to bowl
 
 Blitz 3 seconds/Speed 5
 
Add set aside potato and butter – cook 6 minutes/100 degrees/Speed 4/reverse (MC off, basket on top of hole to avoid splatter)

Healthy Golden Gaytime Easter Eggs (NF)

These are healthy nut free and refined sugar free Easter eggs which are a great alternative to the traditional chocolate Easter eggs, great for the whole family!!!! They are great for the Easter egg hunt, Easter presents for both kids at school and for adults, and are a perfect kids in the kitchen activity!
I’ve been working on a healthy Golden Gaytime for my husband as that is his No. 1 icecream flavour (I have been making him a Golden Gaytime Icecream Cake for his birthday every year).
I have made this nut free so it is lunch box friendly. The rice bubbles for the Golden Gaytime ‘crunch’, vanilla bean paste and maple syrup to get the caramel flavour, and cocoa powder for the chocolate. These are DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!
 
Note that the cocoa/cacoa powder is quite bitter which goes really well with the sweet ‘egg’ part and together makes it taste like it had a hint of dark chocolate. If the bitterness bothers you, you could coat in a drinking chocolate (with added sugar), blitzed up choc chips, dessicated coconut or leave it coating free 🙂
To wrap them up into ‘Easter Eggs’, I used the cheapest aluminium foil I could find from Coles, as it is nice and thin – the stuff I normally use from Costco is a lot thicker and doesn’t wrap as nicely around the egg shape (Coles Smartbuy foil – about $1.10 for 10m – bargain!), and I bought a $2 pack of 100 Easter stickers from the reject shop.
You can make these as bliss balls (when it’s not Easter) for healthy Golden Gaytime treats! You can also use my other bliss ball recipes and roll them into an egg shape like this too! However, the taste and crunch in these Healthy Golden Gaytime Easter Eggs will definitely be a winner with the kids!!!
Add all ingredients (except for rice bubbles) in bowl
Mix 15 seconds/Speed 8
Add rice bubbles
Mix 15 seconds/Speed 2/Reverse
Spoon out a tablespoon of mixture
And shape/roll/press into an egg shape
Roll in cacoa/cocoa powder
Place in fridge to firm up for at least 1 hour
Cut small squares of cheap aluminium foil
Wrap Egg inside the foil and press the foil around the shape so it’s nice and firm
Press foil around the egg
Secure the end of the foil with stickers and decorate with more stickers 🙂
Repeat the above for all of the eggs
Enjoy giving them for presents, eating at home, or using them for a healthy Easter Egg hunt!! Check out Ethan and Harley with their first (practice) Easter Egg hunt:

Healthy Golden Gaytime Easter Eggs (NF)

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 100 grams oats
  • 160 grams medjool dates (pitted)
  • 10 grams chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 10 grams maple syrup
  • 40 grams coconut oil
  • 25 grams rice bubbles/puffed rice
  • Cacoa or cocoa powder to roll eggs in

METHOD (Thermomix):

2

Add the oats, dates, chia seeds, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut oil.

3

Mix 15 seconds/Speed 8.

4

Add the rice bubbles and mix 15 seconds/Speed 2/Reverse.

5

Use a spoon to measure out a spoonful of mixture and roll/shape into an egg shape (make sure to get excess rice bubbles from the bottom of the bowl so that you get an even mixture)

6

Roll the egg in cacoa/cocoa powder and place in fridge to set for at least an hour.

7

Once the egg's have firmed up, wrap in pieces of aluminium foil and decorate with Easter stickers (optional). You can wrap with aluminium foil straight after making them, but I find it easier once they have firmed up.

Add the oats, dates, chia seeds, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut oil.

10

Mix until all the ingredients are combined.

11

Add the rice bubbles and do a quick turbo mix, you may need to further mix with a spoon/spatula - try not to blend it too much as you may lose the rice bubble crunch!
