Eat 2 Eggs, or More? How Many Eggs to Eat and Good Versus Bad Cholesterol
But is eating too many bad for our health? Is the cholesterol they contain good or bad for us?
If you consider that a single egg contains everything needed to usher a chicken into existence – eggs are clearly nutritious.
What crucial substance to eggs contain that’s needed for many physiological processes – like making Vitamin D – to the human body?
We explore the “sunny side” of eggs and consider whether the egg “cholesterol risk” is really all it’s “cracked up” to be on this #VitalSigns with Brendon Fallon.
–––Brendon’s Sunday Bratwurst Frittata (serves 4)–––
6 egg yolks separated from egg whites
1 cup full-fat dairy
6 ounces chopped bratwurst sausage
1 cup (4 ounces) grated or crumbled cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1/2 chopped onion
3 tablespoons pesto
6 ounces chopped whole white mushrooms
Black pepper and chives for seasoning
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1. In a 12-inch skillet, warm 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat until simmering. Add the chopped onion.
2. Whisk the egg whites in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the dairy and butter. Set the mixture aside.
3. Warm another tablespoon of olive oil in a separate skillet. Add the bratwurst and mushrooms. Leave to cook separately.
4. Whisk the egg mixture once more. When the onions begin to brown, pour the mixture over them. Stir with a spatula briefly to combine and distribute the mixture evenly across the pan.
5. Add in the pesto, sun dried tomatoes, half the cheese.
6. Once the bratwurst has started to brown in the separate skillet add it, with the mushrooms, to the frittata mix.
7. Once the outside edge of the frittata turns lighter in color, pour half the egg yolk evenly over the surface, then carefully flip it over onto the other skillet.
8. Pour the remaining egg yolk and cheese over the now exposed side of the frittata.
9. Allow to cook for a few minutes, before flipping again, so that both sides have a golden-brown color.
10. Add the black pepper and chives for taste and serve.
