Delicious Scrambled Eggs and Brains Recipe

When all dishes of eggs get boring, take the simple scrambled eggs to the next level with a bit of brains. Get on to this exclusively creamy journey!

Changing lifestyles or just diets comes with the unintended or very much intended consequences of eating differently than before. A plan to follow in these hard times comes very handy. Not as it’s much easier to navigate through the stormy ocean if we have a clear goal in mind as we still have to fight our way through the waves, day after day but the weight of making decisions will be off our shoulders and we can float easier.

A plan will make our struggle much more like going down on a river where we still have to navigate our boat through treacherous whirlpools, reefs, rocks and dead floating wood but we won’t get lost in the vastness of the great ocean.

Therefore, making a plan before any changes with clear goals will not only make us achieve our results but keep us on the safe side of the world as well. Once we go through a well-planned journey, we gain enough experience to navigate through uncharted waters, too.

Sure enough, the open seas are as different from rivers as highways to dirt roads or keto to detoxing but all the experience we have gained, help us shape our actions to the problems we face and make better decisions than just improvising blindly and hope for the best.

Without any doubts, adventures have their charm as well, otherwise movies like Indiana Jones wouldn’t have such impact on us after so many years. Nor chilled monkey brains would be so popular.

Well, it can’t be so popular where there are no monkeys but where monkey is, there must be brains as well. One without the other can’t exist.

It’s the same with other animals too but we can’t really see whole pre-opened pig heads with chilled brains behind the counters. It is something to do with cultural differences probably, as there are cans of pig brains on some shelves, though.

Despite some weird European traditions, eating raw pig isn’t recommended as it could cause all sort of inconvenient complications from bacterial infections to worms. Not like eating raw beef is 100% safe or we can’t get worms from sushi.

So, brains should be cooked in some way or the other and what other way would be best than frying it with a bit of onion and eggs. Well, there are other ways as well but making scrambled eggs with caramelized onion and a toss of brains sounds easy enough for anyone to try.

The results are really rewarding, as with very little effort, we can get a really delicious meal in very short time that can be satisfying at any time of the day.

The brain is totally edible tissue with a high concentration of DHA, that is an important omega 3 fatty acid which is essential for growing children and lactating women.

As we could expect brains, are delicacies in French cuisine and also in some part of China as well but they are not going as far as the chicken feet.

So before going deep in the intricacies of how to make the perfect Tête de veau (French ‘calf’s head’) or testina di vitello (Italian) let’s just start with something simple that is between two worlds and pleases everyone even if they don’t know what they are having at the first bite.Eggs-and-brains-recipe-3-SunCakeMom

F.A.Q.

Is it safe to eat pork brains?

Yes, pork brain is safe to eat. As it is with any pork parts, it’s recommended to heat it up to 145°F / 63°C. This heating happens naturally when making scrambled eggs and brains so there is nothing to be worried about.

What do pork brains taste like?

The texture may resemble mashed avocados or anything that is light and creamy like whipped cream. There is no other flavor that would describe the taste of brains. Pork brain tastes like chicken brain maybe a bit more umami.
