Bread with fried eggs is one of the common breakfast or school sandwich to make up and the lunchbox may sure be tired of those triangles and squares. These rolls are a way to switch up things and still keep this food interesting for the ‘devourers’. There’s another fish bread roll that you can try too, if you haven’t already.
Egg and Peppers Bread Roll is simply flattened bread, rolled with fried egg and traffic light bell peppers (get your child to tell you the traffic light colours and meanings). You can do without the peppers or switch with whatever you have like chopped tomatoes, chopped crispy bacon, cubed fried plantain…anything, but keep it small so that you will not have trouble rolling it.
Add some kick to it with ketchup or any other sauce and see if they like it better. Let’s make a roll.
Egg and Peppers Bread Roll Recipe
(You will need a rolling pin)
- 2 medium Sliced Bread
- 2 eggs
- Handful or sprinkling of thinly chopped bell peppers
- A pinch of salt to taste
- Ketchup or other sauce – optional
- Butter or any oil spread
- Knob of butter or oil for frying egg
- Break eggs into a bowl and whisk well with the salt and the peppers. Add butter or oil in a pan and place on low-medium heat, then add the egg mixture. You can cover the top to allow the heat to get the top well done too. Remove from heat once done so that the eggs won’t be too dry, burnt or rubbery. You want soft ‘rollable’ eggs.
- Place bread on a flat surface and use your rolling pin to flatten, then spread some butter. Cut out a fried egg and place on a buttered bread ensuring that the egg is in the middle and not reaching the ends. This will help it to be firmly inside after rolling rather than sticking out.
- Spread some ketchup or sauce on top of the egg at this point if you like. Roll the bread away from you and use more butter if needed to secure the end, otherwise use a toothpick to secure and serve.
