Cooking and tasting some popular TikTok recipes featuring pesto eggs, cheese steak roll-ups and a 4 ingredient keto cookie dough bread with mixed results! The cheese steak roll-ups were supposed to be grilled cheese but I had some beef leftover, the eggs can also be scrambled and as for the cookie dough bread, well, you’ll see!

Cheese steak roll-ups

Take the bread slice and roll it out super thin with a rolling pin. Lay the cheese on top of the bread and meat if using leaving a little strip at one end of the bread – Try not to overload it or it will not roll very well. Brush this with the melted butter. Gently roll up the bread and sit it seam side down on a chopping board, repeat with as much bread / cheese etc as you want.

Melt a good couple of tbsp of butter in a frying pan over a medium low heat, be ready to top up with extra butter as needed. When the butter starts to gently bubble, place the roll-ups in seam side down to cook them. Don’t move them until the seam side is cooked, then carefully roll around the pan in more butter as needed to cook and brown all sides. Rest on kitchen towel before serving warm with a lovely gooey cheese and steak centre.

4 ingredient keto cookie dough bread

Get a large mixing bowl add the eggs and bicarbonate of soda. Whisk away using an electric whisk for a good 15 minutes or so until the mixture thickens up and creates peaks. This took me a good amount of time so do allow the 15 minutes to get a really nice thick texture.

Whisk in the peanut butter and a third of the chocolate chips, until well combined. Pour into a lined loaf tin and top with more chocolate chips. Bake in an oven pre-heated at 160fan/180c or equivalent for approximately 20 minutes (or until a skewer comes out clean) then allow to cool before slicing up and serving.

Pesto Eggs

Add the pesto to your frying pan, spread it out evenly to cover the base. Place the pan on a hob on a medium low flame, carefully crack the eggs into the pesto and cook until the egg white are fully coloured and cooked through / non-transparent. Make your toast whilst it is cooking, serving the egg scooped out of the pan once ready onto the slice of bread – a super yummy brunch!
