Green Eggs & Fam from Two Chubby Cubs is essentially ‘creamy’ scrambled eggs and bacon on toast with a few snipped chives on top. Quirky recipe title aside, it might not look fancy, but it requires just five ingredients to conjure up a really satisfying brunch dish.
The ‘creamy’ eggs are created by folding through some ricotta cheese which gives them a gorgeous light texture. The Cubs recommend topping this with a few drops of brown sauce and a grind of black pepper. Amazing!
You can reduce the calorie count for this by using medium eggs and lean back bacon or bacon medallions. Or just say ‘sod it, it’s only 400 calories’ and tuck in ;-). For more brunch ideas, click here.

Spray a frying pan with a little oil and place it over a high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crispy, then remove to a plate and chop roughly. Place the pan back over a low heat.
Whisk together the eggs and chives and pour into the pan, sprinkling in the bacon. Mix constantly with a wooden spoon for about a minute, until you get firm bits of egg along with some runny.
Remove from the heat and fold in the ricotta – don’t both being too neat about this, big chunks are fine.
Arrange over the toast and serve.
