Recipe Instructions

Add the tallow to a frying pan on medium heat. Once the pan is hot and the tallow has melted add the brains. Use a spatula and coat the brains in the tallow, using the spatula to break the brains up into smaller pieces. Cook for a couple of minutes, turning over with the spatula from time to time.


Meanwhile, place the egg yolks into a glass with a little salt. Whisk around a little with a fork.


Add the egg yolk to the pan and then cook for a couple of minutes stirring with the spatula until everything is cooked to your liking. Perform a quick taste test to see if any additional seasoning is required.


Use a spatula to add the scrambled egg and brain to a small bowl or on top of your favourite crispy PKD bread or waffles. Sprinkle with a little crispy Parma ham flakes (optional) and serve nice and hot.


If you do not have any tallow to hand, simply use a little lard or bone marrow to fry the brains in.


Ideally, purchase your fat and offal from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free and use white sea salt or rock salt that contains no anticaking agents or other additives.


Be sure to use free range, organic eggs. Whether you can eat eggs may depend on your condition, medical history, the time you have been doing PKD and your health goals. If you're unsure, please consult with ICMNI in Hungary (Home - Nutriintervention).
