HOW TO PREPARE EGG SAUCE
•Egg sauce is a popular Nigerian food made with eggs, chopped tomatoes, chopped peppers, chopped onions, vegetable oil and spices of choice.
•Egg sauce is very easy to prepare for breakfast.
•Egg sauce is almost the same thing as scrambled eggs, but more ingredients are added in preparing egg sauce.
•Fried egg is often confused with egg sauce. They are both made with the same Ingredients, but they are not quite the same. Fried egg is allowed to cake and stick together (not stirred in making it) and also does not consume time in preparing it, while egg sauce/scrambled egg is stirred, so that the ingredients do not stick together and also consume time in preparing it.
