refried eggs


Ever since our chickens started laying, we have had a glut of eggs and I have been exploring just about every way of preparing eggs I could find.

After boiling over 40 eggs at once, (Pic2) I tried something entirely new with them: I sliced a few of them, and refried them in a sizzling hot frying pan. Did I just create a new egg recipe? Apparently not.

Once I knew what to look for, it didn't take long for me to find such recipes. Refrying is clearly not that uncommon for a very good reason. Refried eggs do taste different from an omelet with the same ingredients, but in a very nice way. It is definitely something worth doing again.

Question 2019-10-18: Is this an egg stew?

The eggs are the primary ingredient, and with the moisture from those tomatoes, it's obviously not dry-cooking. I guess that means it could be considered a stew.


This is what you need for 2 servings:

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup green beans, cooked
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped small
  • S&P
  • optional:
    •  ½ cup onion, chopped small.
