This New Trend Has People Adding Marshmallows To Eggs

Marshmallow-Eggs

A new trend in Japan has people throwing marshmallows into their eggs and making omelets. Growing in popularity, the new cooking method yields for a sweet result.

A substitute for sugar, marshmallows are used and added to eggs. The recipe calls for only a few ingredients overall: eggs, marshmallows, oil, dashi (soup stock) and soy sauce.

Marshmallow-Eggs-02

While tricky at first, RocketNews 24 reports that you have to intertwine the eggs and marshmallows rather than mix them. Think of it like soft scrambled eggs. Move it around slowly as it cooks.

Finding a balance between heat and folding the eggs, one can create quick scrambled eggs or sweet omelets. If properly executed, what you get is a sweet and savory amalgam of eggs that have the sweet fluffiness of marshmallows.

Carl’s Jr. Stuffs Two Omelets into a Biscuit, Loads of Cheese and Meat

Carls-Double-Biscuit-Omelette

Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are packing twice as many omelets this week with their new breakfast entry, the Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit. Because there’s no time these days to sit down and enjoy an omelet, the fast food chain has sandwiched a couple eggy babies between two biscuits. Hey, you won’t hear any complaints on our end. We’re drooling over here.

The Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit features two folded-egg omelets stuffed with sausage, bacon, ham, and shredded Jack and cheddar cheeses. Because two types of cheeses weren’t enough, the sandwich is topped with yet another slice of cheese, this time American. All that is served between two “Made from Scratch” Carl’s biscuits.

Patrons can purchase the Double Loaded Omelet Biscuit for either $2.79 individually or for $4.49 in a combo meal that comes with Hash Rounds and a beverage; prices may vary depending on the location. The biscuit sandwich will be available today at all Hardee’s locations and on October 22 at all Carl’s Jr. locations.

We hope biscuits are getting cool again because, honestly, they’re the most under-appreciated breakfast starch around. Everyone seems to go for the waffles and the wraps these days. #biscuitlove

A Sleeping Omelet Bear So Cute You Could Eat It

sleeping-bear-omelet

When we first stumbled upon this picture on the internetz, our intern Erika remarked, “I hate when people make really adorable food because then you feel really bad eating it.” We’re guessing it has something to do with how peaceful the lil’ guy looks sleeping under his eggy blanket and his adorable cheese ears . . . all cooked to perfection. Mmm, throw some bacon and Tabasco sauce on this super presh omelet and I’d have no problem calling it a day.

Come on, you can’t tell me that doesn’t sound tasty. Pair it with a mimosa and it’s practically bearrrunch. Ooo, bad joke, I know.

McDonald’s Turkey Has a Breakfast Menu that Actually Looks Fresh & Healthy

mcdonald's turkey

I did a double take on this one. Apparently, McDonald’s Turkey sells a “Turkish Breakfast Menu” that features a vibrant offering of sliced cucumbers, olives, tomatoes, feta cheese, an omelet and an English muffin. This is a far cry from the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit spilling over with grease and delicious calories back here in America. Turkey’s Breakfast Menu not only looks like it’s good for you but more like something you’d throw together in your own kitchen, than something from Mickey D’s.

Turkey-McDonalds

While our friends over at RocketNews24 claim that they’d “still pick the American one given the choice,” we’d be tempted to try a bite of that feta cheese + omelet combo.

Craving: Peanut Butter and Jelly Omelet

Yeah, you read it correctly, peanut butter and jelly omelet! What! There are two ways to look at this piece of work: a dish cluster filled with cholesterol and saturated fat. Or the correct way, a masterpiece that is surrounded by childhood memories and thinking this dish is going to be nasty! (Thx CDF)
