Ham & Egg Parcels ~ 火腿和鸡蛋杯


These Ham & Egg Parcels are not only delicious but are very simple to make for breakfast.   Serving this for breakfast is a far cry from the usual 'dim sum', curry mee or nasi lemak, and it's healthy and nutritious too.  There's no recipe really but I'll just list down below what are 'hidden' in these parcels :)





Ham & Egg Parcels

Ingredients
4 slices of cooked ham
4 large eggs
Cherry tomatoes
Salt, pepper and dried herbs

Method
Grease a standard size muffin pan.  ( I used a rectangular shape muffin pan)
Press a ham slice onto the bottom and up the sides of  the prepared pan, ruffling the edes of ham
Break an egg into a measuring cup and then pour it into the pan
Sprinkle with pepper, a pinch of salt and some mixed dried herbs
Top with tomato halves
Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg.C for 15 to 18 mins till the whites are completely set 
and the yolks cooked.
Let stand for 3 to 5 mins. before removing from the pan.
Serve immediately with toasts

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
