Recipe: Vivek Pande's Baked Eggs

June 16, 2022 12:54 IST

My brother Vivek, who loves to cook, served me up his yummy signature skillet for brunch recently.

A typical American country skillet breakfast is a hearty and complete breakfast for the family made in just one large skillet or frying pan.

Its format allows for endless variations and the use of leftovers. Skillet can have versions that match your diet choices and offers fusion possibilities.

Vivek Pande's Baked Eggs Skillet

Serves: 3-4



Note: Other vegetable options could be kale instead of spinach, mushrooms, red or yellow capsicum in addition to green capsicum, garnish of chopped parsley, chives, and green garlic.

A meaty take could include fried bacon bits and/or chopped fried sausages.

A vegan version could make use of pre-scrambled crumbled tofu.

For an interesting Indian fusion skillet, spice up the potatoes with a few curry leaves, coriander powder, a little ghee, a pinch of garam masala or sambar powder.

For a Jain version, use baked beans instead of potatoes and skip the onion and garlic and add scrambled tofu in place of eggs.
