Green eggs and ham

I really like how bright the tomato chutney was. It inspired me to apply some colour theory knowledge to my food. After all, my husband always says…

We eat with our eyes first!

I wanted to make something that would complement it’s colour, it had to be green.


I bet you’re wondering how I made those eggs green! (^_^) I was very simple actually…  

I beat the eggs with a tablespoon of a herb mix. I initially made the mix to marinate chicken for skewers which I cooked in the oven. I made a little too much. (In case you’re wondering, no, I will not be posting that skewer recipe, it’s backfired horribly!)

the mix had a bit of garlic, and lots of basil and dania

Then I fried some onions, some green pepper and ham, added the beaten eggs…

… and folded in basil leaves

still had some fresh basil leaves, laid a few on one side and folded the egg to finish off
served with a side of tomato chutney!

Your breakfast is ready!

I wish the chutney wasn’t so sweet though

Really?!! You gave it a good rating yesterday,… I thought you liked it because it’s sweet.

It’s too sweet!
