I LOVE eggs. They are quick, easy, versatile to cook and cheap (even cheaper if you have chooks). They can be an addition to a main meal or the star; a protein packed breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. So of course I keep a couple of cartons of eggs in my fridge at all times and, due to time constraints and not having gotten anything out of the freezer for dinner yesterday, I was inspired to make "smashed eggs" and noodles. Smashed eggs are kind of like an omelette without the pressure to not let it all fall apart!

Preparation time: Approx. 10 minutes
Cooking time: Approx. 10 minutes

Serves: 2 adults and 2 toddlers with one serve left over

Ingredients:

Half a packet of rice stick noodles
About 2 cups of mixed diced vegies
6 eggs, beaten
Italian herb mix
A handful of fresh basil leaves
Gluten free soy sauce

Method:

1) Prepare a large frypan with a little oil or butter. Stir fry all the vegies together until just starting to cook through.

2) Meanwhile cook rice stick noodles according to packet instructions.

3) Add eggs to the stir fry mix. Pull egg away from the edges as it cooks so that there is no runny egg left on top. This is smashed eggs so don't worry about it looking nice like an omelette!

4) Add Italian spice and basil leaves.

5) Serve on a plate and add a little soy sauce.

**You could very easily add some ham, prawns, chicken or other left over meat to this dish. I think some cheese would also be nice, but I completely forgot to put some on!

**Use whatever vegies you have in your fridge, cupboard or garden. For this dish I used: mushrooms, yellow grape tomatoes, red capsicum, zucchini and some leftover tinned corn and butter beans.

**The leftovers make a great breakfast with a slice of gluten free toast with avocado...just sayin'!
