Here's a no-fuss breakfast recipe for those mornings when oats or toast just won't cut it. I love eating eggs for breakfast, as I get an instant protein hit. I often eat them with a slice of lean ham and baby spinach instead of bread, however you can add 1 piece of wholemeal, multigrain or rye toast to your serving. This is a very simple recipe that can be altered to suit what you have in your fridge/pantry. 


  • 4 eggs, preferably free-range, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped, plus a few extra leaves to serve 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika 
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat cows milk, (if dairy intolerant substitute for soy, lactose-free or almond or oat milk with added calcium)
  • 1/2 red or green capsicum, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 1/2 a small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil 
  • pinch of sea salt & ground black pepper, if desired
  • Optional - either add a thin slice or 2 of lean ham and a handful of baby spinach or 1 piece of wholemeal, multigrain or rye toast per serving


1. Whisk the eggs, basil, paprika and milk in a medium bowl until well combined. 

2. Heat a medium to large frying on medium heat and add olive oil, swirling to coat. Add the capsicum, garlic and red onion and cook, stirring, for around 2-3 minutes or until the onion is soft.  Add the eggs and stir gently until the eggs are just set and 'scrambled'. 

3. Serve half of the cooked eggs on top of ham & spinach or toast with a few basil leaves scattered on top, if desired.
