Bacon, Tomato & Cheddar Steamed Eggs

Bacon, Tomato, Cheese Steamed Eggs
Ugly delicious?

I didn't mean to cook an ugly dish, in my mind, when I was planning this dish, it was supposed to be gorgeous...almost chawanmushi-esque...all silky, satiny smooth, glossy goodness. However, thanks to my addiction to chit chatting online...I overcooked it, and it turned this ugly.

I know, I know...overcooked eggs are never sexy, but I was surprised by how forgiving this dish is...despite the appalling appearance, it's still all light, fluffy, creamy, tasty and refreshing at the same time. I will surely try again soon...and next time, I won't be chatting/youtubing/facebooking/twittering, I promise :)

But, you see, never trust an addict ;)

Now, how crazy easy was the dish?
I thought of including the word "easy" in the title of the post, but that'd be ridiculous, as most of you know that I can only make beyond-beginner-almost-idiotic easy dishes.

- 4 eggs, beaten (I measured, it's about 200ml)
- equal amount of milk, thus 200ml

- a few slices of bacon, chopped
- 1 tomato, diced
- cheddar cheese, cut into about 1x1x1cm cubes
- salt, pepper, dry mixed herbs, paprika, worcestershire sauce

Feel free to add and substract the ingredients as you wish...replace tomatoes with mushrooms, replace bacon with turkey/ham/sausages...replace herbs with scallion, etc...the sky is your limit!

After chopping and dicing the ingredients, scatter them around a plate and season them, like this...

Mix beaten eggs and milk then pour...

Steam on medium heat for about 10-12 minutes, keep checking...I think I overdid it (chatting online etc) and steamed it for almost 20 minutes huehuehue...

...and done!
Bacon, Tomato, Cheese Steamed Eggs
Fluffy milky eggs, creamy bits of melted cheddar, refreshing bites of tomatoes, smoky and savory know it's gotta be good!

Eat it as is for breakfast, slap in between bread/toasts/English muffins/croissant, or consume it the weird Asian way (I am the weird Asian)...for lunch/dinner...with steamed rice and ABC Indonesian Chilli Sauce ^_^'

Nevertheless. Yum!

Rita, the tongue cannot see, so it doesn't matter if ugly. As long as it tastes good, that's what matters.
And it looks tasty!

I don't think it looks ugly, seriously. Not chawamushi but fits a frittata perfect. And I COMPLETELY like the idea of simplicity.
