Now the warmer weather and longer days are starting, my chooks have started to lay more eggs. On the average I'm getting just over 6 eggs a day from the chooks and some days 5 from the ducks.

Here are a couple of great egg recipes from my kitchen.

Baked Custard

3 eggs

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 & 1/2 cups milk

nutmeg or cinnamon

Beat eggs, sugar & vanilla together lightly, add milk stir to combine.

Pour into ovenproof dish, sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.

Stand dish in baking dish with enough water to come half way up sides of dish.

Bake in oven at 200 degrees C for 60 minutes.

Note: I check by using in metal spoon to see if the egg is cooked & set.

Egg & Bacon Pie

4 eggs

3/4 cup packet pastry

3/4 cup grated cheese

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup bacon

3/4 cup cream (opt)

spring onions chopped or 1 diced onion

Combined all together in bowl and mix.

Spread into round oven pie dish.

Cook 200 degrees C for about an hour or until cooked and golden brown.

Note: We usually eat it with a garden salad.
