Behold! I explore the fourth dimension with my VERY FIRST episode of Ponytail Journal’s ‘Tastiest Life Possible’! I am so, so excited to share with y’all my favourite recipes, tips, and thoughts about cooking and eating with this new channel. I’ve started the series by showing you the ropes with some true basics, which will be your foundation for becoming a great cook. As I progress through the episodes, I hope to equip you with the confidence of being comfortable around food, and hopefully my channel will encourage you to make delicious dishes at home to share with lots ‘o (grateful) pals. The act of cooking and eating with others is a unique experience that can show a person that you enjoy their company. So without further ado… Watch, cook, enjoy, share. These are all the ingredients you need for a Tastiest Life Possible. Take the challenge and subscribe (for free) to stay up-to-date with new episodes.
You will need:
3 free range eggs
butter (grass fed if you can get it)
Make sure your eggs are fresh and at room temperature. Crack them into a bowl, beat well with a fork so that everything is one colour, then add 2 tablespoons of room temperature water and a pinch of salt. Beat to combine, the egg mixture should feel a little thinner but not watery.
Melt a generous knob of butter in a small pan on a very low heat. Once the butter has melted, add the egg mixture to the pan. Wait for the edges of the pan to become an opaque light-yellow, then using a straight edged spatula (not a spoon because you want thick ribbons, not crumbly pieces) scrape the outside edges of the pan to the centre, and tilt the pan in a circular motion so that more egg mixture can fill the newly made gaps. Repeat this action every time the edges become opaque again (BE PATIENT! ultra low heat and time is your friend!) Turn the heat off when you have one solid piece with a slightly runny top. The eggs will continue to cook even on the plate so you want to make sure it’s a little underdone. Plate and serve immediately with freshly cracked pepper and your choice of toppings or sides.
I like to have my eggs with goats curd crumbled on top, sauteed spinach, avocado, and nitrate free bacon when it’s in the fridge!
