cocotte oeuf - Egg Casserole By Omalicha AKA Chizzy

Nutritious Egg Casserole (oeuf cocotte)

 "Cocotte oeuf" is the french translation for "egg casserole" . This particular dish is a figment of my very active imagination. It's one of the tastiest and easiest things I made this year, you better bookmark it *wink*.feel free to alter this recipe,you can
add and subtract as you like. Don't forget that cooking is an art,so there are no rules..don't be afraid of experimenting!  

•12 Eggs. (Remember you can always adjut o, add or subtract to make the quantity you want) 

•6 small tomatoes 

•1/2 cup pepper
•2 medium bulbs onion 

•3 cooking spoons vegetable oil 
•1 small cabbage.  
•2 cans sardines 

•5 small carrots

•1 medium sized green pepper.  
seasoning cubes to taste

salt to taste

• Wash and arrange everything you need.

In a dry pot,add two cooking spoons of oil and when hot add your onion,pepper and tomatoes. stir fry until its thoroughly fried and u can see your oil at the at the top of the pot (above the pepper,etc)

Beat your eggs and season properly. Beat until its foaming. add to the pot. Do not stir,until it appears "caked"

use a frying spoon and scoop from bottom to top,to avoid burning.repeat this process till it scrambles.add little water,check for seasoning and leave to cook for 5mins.when cooked,turn of heat. Add your sardines.

In a dry pan,add one cooking spoon of oil.when hot add carrot,runner beans nd green pepper.stir fry.

after 1minute,add your cabbage and keep stirring.

do not overcook. immediately ur cabbage reduces in size,(cabbage always reduces in size when exposed to heat)turn of heat.

Add your vegetables to your egg sauce.mix properly. You can put this back on heat if you feel like,but after I mixed,I just coverd the pot,and the steam did it for me.

    So whr is the end result? This post looks confused and incomplete. After caking the egg, did u add water to it again before adding sardines and veges? And please you seem to use excess pepper. Too much of everything is not good for your health

    Hi Everyone, I've been noticing this common mistake amongst food posters of this blog. Please, you can't prepare food in a pot/frying pan and call it a casserole, casserole dishes are prepared in a casserole and mostly in an oven. Kindly google what a casserole is and make necessary correction.
    P/s; eggs are scrambled on low heat. This food up there is egg stew/sauce with vegetables.

      Dear anon 11:56, it's not about who brings recipes here, but atleast if you want to, do it right.
      @angel you're just an idiot for this comment. I don't know why people find it difficult to take simple corrections.
      Please, cooking is not a problem to me, I'm well versed in that area and if you're burnt that Furo is my name, you can give it to your child. Rubbish.
