An Eggy Mess!

Yes, it’s a mess! It’s a yummy mess! It’s an EGGY MESS!

Sometimes I don’t have much time to eat.
Sometimes I spend all my time getting baby boys to sleep & eat.
And sometimes I have a bit of time to eat… but I can’t be sure of how much time so I need to find something fast!
And that’s when an Eggy Mess comes in handy!

I don’t think I’ve ever eaten as many eggs as I do now. They are quick to cook, filling and relatively low in ProPoints. Plus you can do so much with them!

Today I bring you my Mushroom and Zucchini Eggy Mess:
First, I find what ever I can in the fridge to mess my eggs up with. Yesterday it just happened to be mushrooms and zucchinis – plus a couple of spring onions.
I chop my messing ingredients (in this case, the zucchini and mushrooms) and add them to my pan with a light spray of olive oil.

I like to chop them a bit chunky. Somehow it just seems more filling that way and I like to have something to really bite into! I let them cook for a few minutes, until they soften a little. I add some cracked pepper and a touch of salt, plus any herbs I might have on hand. This time I had some basil but chose to add the basil fresh at a later stage.

Once the messing ingredients have cooked to my liking, I grab however many eggs I want to mess up and crack them into the pan, where ever they land.

Eggs in the pan!

And now I get to make a mess!! I take a cooking utensil and ‘mess up’ the eggs with the messing ingredients in the pan.

Time to make a mess!

Messy, messy eggs...


I cook the eggs for as long as desired, depending on how hard or soft I want them. And that’s it! Done!

Being married to a Mexican means we almost always have tortillas on hand. Sometimes I eat the Eggy Mess as is, and sometimes I grab a wholemeal or hi fibre tortilla and wrap it up!

Yum! With left over Eggy Mess on the side.

And there we have it! A quick, easy, filling, ProPoint friendly lunch!
Say YES! to Eggy Mess!
