This is a dish I created for my son after he turned one. He likes it a lot. I didn't add any seasoning because the cheddar cheese is already salted and I also try to avoid adding seasoning when cooking for young kid.
1 egg, beaten
1 slice cheddar cheese
180ml water/ stock*
*Ratio of eggs to water/stock is 1:3. The above measurement of water is for reference only. You may reduce the water If you prefer the steamed egg to be firmer.
- Mix beaten egg and water/stock. Strain 2-3 times and pour into 2 ramekins equally. Cover ramekins with heat resistance clip wrap or aluminum foil.
- Bring a steamer to boil and then set the heat to low (I usually steam in my rice cooker). Steam on low heat for about 8 mins, add cheddar cheese on top and continue to steam for another 5 mins.

Hehe....I am ok with cheese not big fan but am also not a hater. I think the cheese kind of blend in with the steamed egg well. :)
Your steamed egg looks yellowish and silky smooth :PReplyDelete
