How To Make Marmite Eggs – A 20-Minute Recipe Proves “Rules Are Made To Be Broken”

“Rules were made to be broken, especially in food,” said Ben Ebbrell, chef and co-founder of YouTube cooking channel Sorted Food. The chefs at Sorted Food recently released a new cookbook called Can’t Be Arsed with Rules, which shares an array of rule-breaking recipes in favor of delicious food.

One, in particular, might divide your breakfast guests at first, but Ben says this delicious twist on a traditional egg dish may “shock” diners.

Ben told “Our new cookbook is about challenging the way we think we should cook and taking a deliciously creative approach to making amazing dishes that don’t cost the earth or must not obey the rules of the chiefs.”

The egg-based recipe adds Marmite, a yeast-based spread that’s both loved and hated in equal measure.

Marmite is combined with garlic butter over golden mushrooms and perfectly cooked eggs.

Place a large skillet over medium heat, then add the butter, garlic and Marmite.

Let the butter melt then sauté the garlic for one to two minutes. Then, pour a quarter of the mixture into a small bowl ready to serve later.

Raise the heat to high, add the mushrooms and sauté for four to five minutes, until browned, sticky and glazed.

Create four divots in the Golden Mushrooms and crack an egg into each.

Fry without disturbing for one to two minutes, then bake for seven to eight minutes, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still jiggly.

Once the eggs are ready, drizzle them with the rest of the butter mixture. Pour sour cream over it.
