Boiled? Scrambled? Poached? That might be how we think about eggs first thing in the morning but there are so many more easy ways to cook with them.

    A favourite in our house is a ‘Saltzburg special” (named after the Swiss lady who taught it to my mum back in the 50’s) Beaten egg mixed with grated strong cheese, spread on toast and grilled, you get a wonderful scrambled egg/welsh rarebit combo – and with wholemeal toast and maybe a little diced ham or tomatoes, a quick, healthy lunch!! In fact I’m going to have it today now I’ve mentioned it!
