Egg Pie

 What do you call a recipe that never falters, is super easy to make and comes out super yummy every single time. Recipes that you must have made over and over again and remember the entire procedure so well that you never need to go back to your recipe notes...???
 I simply call them  ''Works Out Everytime'' recipes.

Egg Pie for a long time has been our staple Sunday morning breakfast .When I got married , I learnt of Vishal's, love affair with eggs. Every morning when I asked him ''what will you eat ?'', his answer always was-''Eggs'' . He can have eggs boiled, poached, fried or at times even raw .
Once he called up his mother in Allahabad and said with excitement - ''Pata hai aaj breakfast mein kya khaya ?".
Poor Amma knew the answer very well but still tried to be a good sport and asked ''Kya khaya?''
Vishal gleamed and exclaimed-"Anda fry".
''Usme naya kya hai ?'' enquired Amma. 
Vishal replied-''Aaj ande ka yolk 20 degree left tha." !!
Well his 'egg for breakfast' fascination has now changed and he is more open to try out other options too. But this recipe still tops his list of egg recipes .

Ingredients : For 2 people
  • 2 eggs
  • 2  boiled potatoes(medium sized)
  • 1/4 of red,yellow and green capsicum (or 1 green capsicum if you don't want to use red and yellow)
  • 4-5 button mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green chilly
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4-5 tbsp mozzarella cheese(grated)

Procedure :
Roughly chop the onion , capsicums , mushroom and green chilly. Take olive oil in a pan and saute the vegetables for 1 min with salt and pepper .(Do not overcook as the veggies will be baked later on)

Mash the boiled potatoes. 
Take eggs in a bowl and whisk them. Add salt to taste .
In a mixer, mix the eggs and the mashed potatoes until blended well.
Preheat oven to 200degree Celsius.
Now take an ovenproof bowl and put a layer of the veggies. 

Then pour the egg and potato mixture.  
Finally sprinkle grated mozzarella cheese on top.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins or till the cheese melts and becomes brownish To check if the eggs are done ,insert a toothpick and check if it comes out clean .

Serve with  a slice of toast and hot tea .

Happy Baking !!
