This idea came to me when Joe was little and he really didn’t like the “orange” of eggs but loved the white. When the whites are cooked on their own they get beautifully light and fluffy and lend themselves to sheep’s wool. Eggs are such an economic, nutrient dense food and can be used for breakfast, snacks or main meals. This is my breakfast version.
– Scrambled whites (I needed two to fill the mold)
– Egg yolk (cooked very carefully until a harder “skin” forms). Microwaves will explode egg yolks with delight so if cooking use very low heat for approx. 10 secs).
– Cheese – for sun’s rays
– Wholemeal bread sliced for fence
– Olive/raisin for eye
– Mushroom. I used one for the ground.
– I also used a tomato for flowers (see photo at end)
1. Put cooked egg whites into a mold. If you push in they hold marvellously well.
2. Take sheep from mold.
3. Put lightly cooked yolk and cheese rays onto top corner.
4. Add eye to sheep.
5. Add toast fence.
6. I added a cut up mushroom for the ground.
7. And I tried a tomato for flowers but not sure!!!
