Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Beautiful Breakfast Tortillas | Jamie Oliver

Difficulty: 0

Hi guys! Were going to make the most amazing breakfast tortillas, they are so quick, so delicious

Its an amazing, breakfast, brunch or lunch

Lovely eggs, little bombs of manchego cheese

Soft tortillas, avocado, lime, coriander, chilli sauce, it's going to be great

Now this recipe comes from this book, Jamie's America, it's one of my favourites, I think the recipes are absolutely incredible

And in this recipe of course, were in L.A, were in East L.A with the Mexican communities

I spent a lot of time in East L.A on different jobs working in schools

and different districts

Met some amazing people. This tortilla is a homage to them, it's so simple

I love making this for like 2 to 4 people, I get a bunch of plates and I just put a couple of things in the middle of the table

First up let's just slice up some tomatoes

Salt, pepper, coriander leaves and lime

Few fresh chillis

So that's the tomato part

Then were going to go on to the avocado part

Now avocado can, depending on the variety, start oxidising and discolouring

and a thing that will stop that is citrus

especially lime, so just a little squeeze of lime juice, a light seasoning

You can finely slice it if you want

And then you can just push it down just to make it look nice

I'm going to use some wheat tortillas here, re-heat these

I got a little Plancha here

Or in a dry pan, non-stick, i don't want them crispy, I just want them crispy and warm, really important

Pan onto a medium high heat

Were going to use some eggs, were going to add spring onions

or scallions, I saw variations of these eggs

In the States and with the Mexican communities

I really love this method

Manchego cheese, so I'm just going to grate about a heaped table spoon

That's for seasoning, if you wanted to, you could just get your knife and do little nuggets of manchego

and they won't fully melt completely until you've finished so you get little bombs of cheese

in your scrambled egg

These are eggs from my chickens, you can see they're all different sizes, that's what happens when you've got chickens, because they're different ages

6 eggs will probably be enough for 4 people actually

Having a few ribbons of yolk and the white is quite nice

So that kind of loose, whipping like that is absolutely cool

I'm going to use just a tablespoon of oil, and just a little bit of butter

In we go with the eggs

Right, now I love to use a spatula for this, really important

There's this lovely little sheets in here

So literally, I'm going to take it off the heat now because I'm reading the temperature and I don't want to overcook it.

So want sheets and under cooked

If its cooked in the pan, it'll be over cooked in your mouth and in the plate

In with the spring onions

So I'm just folding these sheets over, look at the texture

That's what we want, really loose eggs

We haven't kind of, cooked the protein so they're ridiculously firm

and it's like, texturly incredible, with those little bombs of manchego and the seasoning and the flavour

You will never regret cooking eggs like this,

So lets plate one up

I've just warmed up a tortilla on one side, it's not crispy, it's nice and bendy

I'm then going to get some of these beautiful tomatoes, lime juice, coriander, seasoning

Beautiful, beautiful colours


And then we've got these amazing eggs

And this is all about texture, layers, flavours

Look at that

The home made chilli sauce comes out

This one is next level

Click the link, up there, and I'll show you how to make my one, it took me months to get it right

And then what I might do is finish it, just with a little manchego over the top

Long strokes. And look at those colours guys

That just reminds me of my time in America with my mate Rigo in East L.A

Absolutely gorgeous. I hope you like that

Happy breakfast, happy brunch, happy lunch

Happy days, see ya
