How to Fry an Egg

In Super Quick Meals on April 12, 2011 at 10:32 am

Seriously.  I’ve made enough “blackened eggs” in my time so I thought I’d share the best way to fry an egg and save you the trouble I’ve been through.  Thankfully, I learned this early on in my career as scullery maid from an auld Scottish wise one.

Perfectly Fried Egg on Toast

Ok, here’s what you do:

  • Heat up pan to hot
  • Melt a little butter in pan
  • Crack that egg into the hot pan
  • Turn down heat
  • Wait a minute
  • Add 1/4 a cup of water around the edges
  • Cover with see through lid
  • Cook until white on top of yolk turns white
  • Poke white covered yolk occasionally to get a feel for when it is done
  • Cut off extra white that went wild (trim to fried egg shape)
  • Lift with slotted lifter thing
  • Place on kitchen roll (paper towel) to get excess water off
  • Put on plate or buttered toast
  • Sprinkle paprika on egg

It works.  Go try it!!!

Is it your turn to cook?  Did you totally forget about it?  Get on your bike and go get this dressing made in Florida by an awesome family run company.  (So sorry if you can’t get it.)  Very gingery.  Buy some sashimi tuna too.

Ginger Dressing

Saute tuna steak in a little olive oil until cooked on the outsides leaving the center raw.  Slice and put on a plate with dressing spread on top.  You can do this in 5 minutes and everyone will be mega impressed.

Serve with toast and salad.
