Fried Cabbages with Eggs – Kaboċċi moqli bil-bajd

Ingredients

1 kg cabbages

3 eggs

50g butter

salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

  1. Pick off all the dead outside leaves of the cabbage, cut off as much of the stalk as possible, and shred them.  Wash them well in cold water, place them in a colander, and drain; put them into plenty of fast-boiling salted water.  Stir them down once or twice in the water, keep the pan uncovered, and let them boil quickly until tender. The instant they are done, remove from pan and put into a colander to drain.
  2. In a large frying pan melt the butter.  Fry the cabbages for a few minutes, stirring all the time.
  3. Add the eggs.  Season well and continue cooking till eggs are done.
