What happens when you treat your Cadbury Creme Eggs like real eggs and scramble them for breakfast? That sounds like a great #whathappenswednesday subject to me. Short answer? This happens.
Nope: that's not a pile of poo alongside toast and berries. It's scrambled Cadbury Creme Eggs. Of course, if you'd like a little bit more explanation, I'm happy to oblige. Here's how I went about making this dish.
Oh yeah, and btw - shout out to Bags of Love for that awesome new cutting board featuring my art!
First, I bought a Cadbury Creme Egg. This took longer than I thought, because --and have any of you had this issue?--apparently they are impossible to scan at grocery store checkouts. This happens every time I try to buy Creme eggs! So. It took far longer than it should have, but finally I was released from line and headed home with my treasure.
Usually, to make scrambled eggs, I would put an egg and a little milk in a bowl or cup and whisk it with a fork. Well, I knew the hard chocolate shell of a cadbury creme egg wouldn't crack and certainly shouldn't be discarded, so I cut it into pieces first, then I whisked it with some milk.
Then, I heated up a little frying pan with a generous pat of butter, over high heat. I turned the egg mixture into the pan, and reduced the heat as soon as it was added (just like regular scrambled eggs).
I kept the mixture moving a little in the pan. At first it seemed like the milk and the chocolate were quite separate, but it began to kind of melt together.
Once it seemed like the eggs were melty but still had texture, I removed from the pan and transferred to a plate. They looked very boring and distinctly like poop.
Well, I decided they needed accompaniment. Just like regular scrambled eggs!
So, I added two little slices of pound cake with butter to act as toast, and then some berries to round out the plate and add a healthy element to this breakfast delight.
Normally, I would put salt and pepper on my scrambled eggs, but it hardly seemed the right choice here, so instead I sprinkled the candy version with sprinkles.
Voila! Breakfast is served.
It might be ugly but it's full of delicious, and I think you'd be delighted to have this as a cute little snack or decadent easter breakfast for yourself, or to offer your kids. I mean, they're eating a bunch of candy that day anyway, right? At least this way they can pick up some culinary skills, have some fun, and have some fruit on the side.
