Sunday Brunch; A weekly posting for the men of the house who say they cannot live on cupcakes alone. Though, this is disputed by my step son Dan who thinks he probably could!
After last weeks mini cheese popovers with the works, this Sunday's Brunch was a lighter affair but still with loads of flavour.
Bacon & Egg, Prawn Noodle Omelette
150g *dried prawn noodles (5.3oz)
1 tsp crushed ginger
1 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 spring onions shredded into strips
1/2 cup carrot shredded into strips
1/2 cup snow peas shredded into strips
1/2 cup red capsicum shredded into strips
1 tbs of peanut oil
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
4 eyes of fat free bacon shredded into strips
2 whole eggs & 4 egg whites lightly beaten
Sweet Chilli Sauce
*Black Sesame Seeds
Preheat oven to 180c/350F
Put dried noodles in a bowl and cover with boiling water, leave for 3-4 minutes strain & refresh under cold water, separating noodles. Put to one side.
Heat large oven proof frying pan, on medium-high heat, add peanut oil & sesame oil.
Add ginger, garlic & three of the shredded spring onions stir fry 30 seconds.
Add carrots, snow peas, red capsicum, black pepper, salt & bacon stir fry one minute.
Add noodles, lightly mix with vegetables and bacon before spreading evenly over the base of the pan.
Pour beaten eggs over the noodle mixture, cook over over medium heat 1-2 minutes.
Slide frying pan into pre heated oven and cook until just set, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from oven, drizzle with sweet chilli sauce, sprinkle with black sesame seeds & fried shallots. Toss over remaining shredded spring onion. Cut into wedges and serve.
Add chopped chillies of choice with garlic & ginger.
Change vegetables, shredded baby bok choy, bean sprouts, baby corn work well. Use vegetable noodles & replace bacon with diced smoked tofu for a vegetarian version.
