I think I had mentioned here on my blog at some time that it seemed like I was having less of an issue with cooked egg white.
Growing up, just a piece of cooked egg white in my mouth would cause me to gag violently. I used to worry about going to sleepovers because they might serve fried eggs for breakfast. I honestly don’t recall going to any sleepovers, so the worry was unfounded. I remember one time when we went camping with another family from our church and of course they had fried eggs for breakfast. I remember stuffing the egg whites into my napkin and into my pocket, and later tossing the egg whites far into the lake. Through my life, I’ve had to be really careful about potato salad, for if egg whites were included, there would be that gagging situation.
A couple of days ago, Baden wrote on her blog how she asked her son to help her learn to eat eggs. I was so inspired by her success, that I decided to try having a soft boiled egg, too. Well, I did not achieve soft boiled on my first attempt, but the good news is I managed to eat the entire boiled egg and actually thought it tasted good. I must confess, I did bribe myself with butter. Oh, how delicious that boiled egg was with some butter and salt and pepper.
Now today, I decided to attempt making a soft boiled egg again, and I cooked it too long again. But I decided this time to mash the egg and mix it with avocado. Yummy deliciousness. I am wondering how could I have gone my whole life without eating boiled eggs? I mean, I’ve eaten plenty of boiled egg yolks, but never whites, and now I think they are yummy!
This is a super simple recipe:
- 2 eggs, medium boiled
- 1 half of a medium sized avocado
- salt and pepper, to taste
Peel and mash the eggs with a fork, add the avocado, mash some more. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I’ll have to leave the instructions for making soft or medium boiled eggs up to you to figure out, since I’m not really sure how I managed to make a medium boiled egg, when I meant to make a soft boiled one.
This was a really yummy and satisfying treat.
I updated my GAPS Podcasts and Videos page today, check it out and see all the podcasts I’ve found of Dr. Natasha. I’ve also included two of Baden’s, and I’ll be including my own Blog Talk Radio show interviews, and any other interviews I find out there in the Internet. If you know of one that I have not included, please let me know.
