Folded Eggs

Folded Eggs is another dish that became associated with Australian breakfasts after becoming a hit at Bill Granger’s Sydney restaurant.

As Granger himself has admitted, the secrets to the luxurious, smooth taste of these eggs is cream. It is also important to cook the eggs quickly and not overcook them so that they retain the right amount of moisture.

For this recipe I am making the eggs just a little bit lighter by mixing cream and milk. You can play with the quantities of each to find the right level of richness for you.

Serve the eggs with a garnish such as parsley, with toast and/or with sides such as avocado.
