Carrot Rosti

I’ve mentioned a few times now, that I’m a big fan of breakfast, and I definitely go through phases as to whether I prefer a savoury or a more sweeter style of breakfast. 

When my savoury tooth wins, the first thing I turn to is eggs! Eggs up until recently had a bad reputation for their high amounts of cholesterol, however, they are in fact highly nutritious! As well as being high in protein, they are also good sources of Vitamin B2, B12 and Choline.

Eggs by themselves can be a little boring after a while, so I like to change things up by adding different elements, one of them being this delicious carrot rösti. I like to make these in big batches so in the mornings all I have to do is heat the rösti whilst I’m poaching the eggs. 

This recipe is also versatile in that if you add a little salad to the side, you have a beautiful, healthy and light lunch!

Buon Appetito

When the water is boiling us a wooden spoon to create a whirlpool. Crack an egg into the middle of the whirlpool. Cook for 3 and 1/2 minutes for a runny centre or another minute if you want it set. Remove from the water and drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining eggs.
