Candy corn eggs?? What?? Yes, I know… sounds gross, but it’s not scrambled eggs mixed with candy corn. That would be pretty disgusting if you ask me. It’s scrambled eggs in the shape and colors of candy corn.
I love the idea of making this Halloween morning. Might as well kick off Halloween festivities bright and early, right? Problem is, I made these for my kids the other day and both were very confused by the different colored eggs and became extremely picky with eating them. They refused to eat the white and orange. So strange. I don’t understand. Maybe next year they’ll get over their fear of eating different colored food – ha!
To me, this is a great alternative to the real candy corn. I can’t stand that stuff, and I’ll happily eat the egg version any day. It’s really easy to put together too. Just scramble one egg white and one egg yolk and two eggs separately, and top some of the yellow eggs with cheese.
If you end up making this recipe, don’t forget to tag #marinamakeseats. I hope you all have a great Halloween!
Candy Corn Eggs
- 1 egg white
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Using two separate small bowls, separate the egg white and egg yolk of one egg. Place the egg white in one bowl and the egg yolk in another. Add two cracked eggs to the bowl with the egg yolk. Whisk each separately for a minute or two with a fork or whisk. Add a couple of pinches of salt and pepper to each bowl and set aside.
Set two separate frying pans at medium/medium-low heat. For creamy eggs, you want to cook the eggs low and slow. Add the egg whites to one pan and the egg yolk and eggs to another. Stir and scramble the eggs in each pan until just cooked through. Remove the egg white and half of the yellow egg mixture from the pans. Place cheese on top of the remaining yellow eggs and let the cheese melt to create orange eggs.
Assemble the eggs based on the shape and colors of candy corn. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper if needed.
