This is something I make almost weekly (originally posted on my blog)!

  • Two whole eggs, two egg whites
  • Various herbs/spices (I usually use black pepper, turmeric, dried basil and oregano)
  • Two medium to large sized ramekins/egg poaching containers
  • Shallow pot
  • (Optional) 2 tablespoons of milk
  • (Optional) 1 1/2 tablespoons of quark or cream cheese (I use quark)




  1. Place water in a shallow pot – two or three inches is good enough and heat to a boil.
  2. While water is boiling, crack two whole eggs and two egg whites into a bowl or mug.
  3. Sprinkle spices and black pepper and mix.
  4. (Optional) Add milk and quark into the mug.
  5. Scramble/stir until combined
  6. Add the mixture into the containers
  7. Once water is coming to a boil, place ramekins into the bath and close the lid and lower the heat
  8. Steam for approximately 10-15 minutes
  9. Remove ramekins/containers from water bath and serve

Serve this with toast, waffles or fruit.
