Yes, this is my favourite breakfast every now and then. If you like condensed milk like me, you’ll love this. I had this for my Christmas Day breakfast….delicious. The milo with condensed milk is just heavenly itself. With 2 poached eggs with it, I can’t describe to you how good it is.
This sweet poached egg is what my mom cooked for us when we were young. The eggs were from our home- reared chicken….free range and organic. There’s always condensed milk in my house because I grew up drinking condensed milk in a bottle! Sadly, there’s no more condensed milk in Malaysia these days. It ’s called ’sweet creamer’ now because it is no longer made from milk, but from palm oil. Even the ones that I get here is not very delicious. The flavour is not there. The best is homemade condensed milk. It is easy to make at home. If you are interested to make you own condensed milk, click How To Make Condensed Milk. If you like it more runny, use less milk powder.
Milo is also one of my favourite drinks. It’s not easily available here. But I managed to buy it from Tesco. But if you can’t find it, I think it will just be as delicious with chocolate drink.
Here is my simple and easy breakfast, Poached Eggs In Milo With Condensed Milk recipe:
Add condensed milk and milo in a pot just like you would make the milo and condensed milk drink.
Add hot water and mix well. Put on the stove and bring it to a boil.
Break in the eggs, as many as you want. I added 2 only though I was very tempted to put in 4! Boil until the egg white turns white. Cook longer if you like the egg to be harder. I love my eggs to be very soft, like the first picture on top.
Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Enjoy.
Confused About Eggs?
There is a lot of confusion about eating eggs. Many people avoid eggs these days for fear of cholesterol and salmonella poisoning. Are eggs really that bad? Were they not once promoted as one of the most nutritious food on earth? I grew up eating lots of eggs and still do. We ate them poached, soft boiled, steamed or as omelette. Then if we had fever, we ate raw eggs!
Eggs are natural and are good for health. They don’t raise cholesterol in our blood. They are very nutritious to our bodies. It’s the saturated fat, especially the trans fat that does a lot of harm to our body, like margarine, shortening and certain cooking oils. These oils are hidden in lots of processed food, ready-cooked meals and desserts which is advisable to avoid. Having said that, the best is still home cooked food as we can be certain what we add in…..quality ingredients.
