Quick, easy, and cheap for a week night meal. You usually have all the ingredients right in your fridge already. These are sort of like mini, savory omelettes. Yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs in medium sized bowl until "frothy".
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
  3. Heat olive oil in frying pan (I go twice around the pan with the oil).
  4. Drop batter by spoonful into oil and fry on both sides about 3 minutes, until golden.
  5. Once you turn the egg cakes over, they will start to puff up a little.
  6. Serve with pasta and tomato sauce.

Very good breakfast fare. I didn't have breadcrumbs and the store wasn't open yet, so I used rolled oats. Also, egg substitute. Worked out fine. Next time I am going to add some corn.

These egg cakes were terrific! I served them with vegitables and bread for a light dinner. It was wonderfully easy for a light summer meal. Not a lot of "kitchen time". That is a great plus when the kithen is a hot.
