Put on an eggstravganza for your Mumma…


There is no gift you can give to the one who gave you the gift of life. Yet the only gift she would ever want is your time and your smile. Tomorrow we celebrate Mother’s Day here in Australia. All you babies and Daddies get up and do something extravagant for that special woman in your life.

The day should begin with a sleep in, followed by breakfast in bed. Hope SammyK, Viktor and Jesse ji are reading this.


Ingredients: 10 Cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 2

  • Four eggs
  • 400 ml of tomato pureè 
  • One medium onion, thinly sliced
  • Half a teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
  • Half a teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Half a teaspoon of chilli flakes 
  • One teaspoon cumin powder
  • One teaspoon sugar
  • Salt to season 
  • Three tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Heat oil in a pan. Add onions and cook until lightly caramelised.

Now add tomato pureè and all the spices. Feel free to add more than suggested quantities to match your taste. Let the tomato sauce simmer on medium heat for 15 – 20minutes.

Crack the eggs one by one straight into the pan. Turn down the heat, cover the pan and cook the eggs until the egg white fully set.

Serve alongside toasted crusted sourdough bread. A lip smackingly delicious start to the day for that special lady in your life.
