The first advance copy of my cookbook Starting Fresh! has arrived, and it’s like Father Christmas visiting in July! Ever since, I have been cooking non stop from it. I took the book with me this morning when I visited my mum. The Breakfast Egg Cup caught her eye and it’s one of my favorites too. It’s tasty, speedy, a breeze on “washing up, and the ingredients are refrigerator stock items so there’s no last minute dash to the grocer.

Pick your comfort level, microwave or oven, and in a few minutes you’ll have a yummy breakfast suitable for a mad dash out the door to school or work, or smantzy enough to wow your weekend guests!


 Breakfast Egg Cup

Makes 1
1 large egg
1 ramekin or small ovenproof baking cup
1 slice tomato
2 tbsp finely chopped baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp grated sharp cheddar cheese or crumbled goats cheese

Place a tomato slice in the bottom of a ramekin and microwave for 20 seconds  or bake at 375F for 4-5 minutes. Remove and top with spinach leaves then crack egg over spinach and top with milk and then cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds for soft yolk or a little longer for a harder yolk . Alternatively bake at 375F for about 4-5 minutes for soft yolks or 6-7 for harder yolks.
