My mum used to make this curry called ‘Hurry Curry’ which basically was a curry sauce with quartered hard boiled eggs in it. Was one of my fave dishes as a kid.
In hindsight…the name is a little misleading! Nothing quick about it, unless you count how quick we ate it!October 29, 2011 at 9:10 am #512302
😆 thanks RavykOctober 29, 2011 at 10:05 am #512303
You can add the boiled ones to the inside of meat loaf (scotch egg meat loaf) I think its called or make large rissoles around a boiled egg. I am thinking they will freeze as well.October 29, 2011 at 10:16 am #512304
Impossible quiche? 6 eggs (I usually double it), one onion chopped (or leek/ shallots/ spring onions), 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup SR flour (I use one cup), 2 cups milk (powdered is fine), 1 cup grated cheese, 1/2 cup filling such as mushrooms/ ham/ bacon/spinach/ leafy greens- whatever you want really and I use more than half a cup.
Mix all ingredients together except filling and cheese.Pour into a greased 9inch quiche plate (I dont own one so just use a square glass baking dish). Sprinkle filling over, add cheese. Bake at 180C for an hour. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Tastes great cold as well and freezes well.October 29, 2011 at 10:19 am #512305
Bugger- just read where you said BESIDES quiches and fritattas….must need more caffeine….
Eggs vindaloo? Tried it once made from scratch and it was too hot for my tribe- hubby and i liked it though. Basically boiled, peeled halved eggs simmered in a vindaloo sauce served with rice.October 29, 2011 at 12:34 pm #512306

OOOOOOOO! Sounds like good eating at your place!!! Hard boiled eggs in dish, cover with lots of strong cheese sauce,top with grated cheese and parmesan.Bake until golden, serve with rice or couscous and salad.October 29, 2011 at 3:59 pm #512308
For salads add chopped hard boiled eggs to the potato salad as well. Scrambled eggs with various added bits and pieces are nice for a lighter meal.
Then of course there are all the egg based desserts too.
I’m running into a the same what do I do with eggs problem as you just now. I really should try a souffle with 3 dozen eggs in the fridge it’s not going to matter if I stuff it up.October 29, 2011 at 5:21 pm #512309
You could also bake a cake that uses 4 to 6 eggs and a couple batches of biscuits. That’s 12 eggs right there. I have to do a double batch each time I make choc chip biscuits so if I want to double that, that’s 8 eggs. I got tired of making them every 2 to 3 days.
I’m the only one who really eats what was on my last list, DH sometimes eats the custard. He would rather eat my baseless quiche.October 29, 2011 at 6:11 pm #512310

this is a great way to use up eggs and spinach
BAKED EGG SPINACH:
1/2kg of cooked spinach or silver beet
1 tspn fresh dill
pinch of nutmeg
2 tspns fresh oregano
2 tblspn butter
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups of cheese
salt and pepper to taste
wash and shread spinach and blanch in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Drain thoroughly. Fry lightly in butter with spices. place in oven proof dish. Beat together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and half the cheese.
Pour mixture over the spinach and allow spinach to rise to the surface. Sprinkle the rest of thecheese on top and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or until sets
Serves 4 but if you add an extra 2 eggs you can stretch it to 6 people. I have also added bacon to the egg mixeture.
This goes well with any meat or just on its ownOctober 30, 2011 at 6:45 pm #512313
Yesterday I made Marmorkuchen — German marble cake. It’s easy and delish and uses 6 eggs:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
6 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
3/4 cup cocoa (I use organic, so cut this back to just over 1/2 cup)
Heat oven to 180. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. Cream butter and sugar well then add in egg yolks. Mix flour and baking powder and add slowly to creamed mix. Add lemon rind and juice. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into cake mix until just blended. Divide batter in half, add cocoa to one half. Place blobs of chocolate and then white cake batter into pan, alternating colours until batter is all used up. Bake for about 45 mins.
If you like, you can drizzle with cocoa icing:
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups icing sugar
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together melted butter, cocoa, sugar and vanilla. Blend in hot water until mix will spread smoothly (or a bit extra if you want to drizzle it).October 30, 2011 at 9:46 pm #512314
Not a main meal but some fruit cake recipes use heaps. I haven’t got it but Mum has a recipe from one of my Grandmas with 10 or 12 eggs in it. I’m guessing it was thought up with an egg glut and large families in mind.
