Breakfast

Most mornings my breakfast consist of nothing more than a dried tasteless granola bar, accompanied by a good cup of coffee.

For some unknown reason, this cloudy Saturday morning, I want this:

A perfectly fried egg.

Need help - okay, take your pan and place it over low heat, throw in a tablespoon or two of butter (real butter, not that yellow vegetable oil) and cover. Yes, cover the egg with a lid. Set your timer to three or three and a half minutes.

Slide it from the pan and enjoy.

Or, better yet, place it atop a nice juicy steak.

h/t, Felicity Cloake.

  1. I get my corned beef hash fried up nice and crispy, then I turn the heat down, crack a couple eggs over the top, and cover it up.

    Time to hit the kitchen, that is one good-looking egg you've got there.

  4. I love eggs too! I miss farm eggs, but my folks are planning to get chickens once again so hope springs eternal.

    I rotate my favorite style of eggs. Currently in first place is taking a large slice of sourdough bread, cutting a circle from the middle with a canning jar lid, butter both the "holey" bread and the circle you cut out on both sides. Fry in a pan with an egg cracked in the hole. Flip over when the white is almost set for over easy and a few seconds later I'm in heaven.

    A little home made jelly on the round doesn't hurt nuthin' either :)

    1. You know, Bubba, when I was younger and camped with my father he fried eggs using the same method you just described..and, I miss those early mornings with him and his breakfast toast. Jelly never hurt anything...thanks, my friend.

  5. Interesting way to fry an egg - however having said that, I've never fried an egg in my life. I prefer an omelet .. for which I'm discovering the microwave is very useful for.

  6. Breakfast can be two or three of the most important meals of the day.

  7. There's nothing wrong with a fried egg, and I can eat breakfast any time of the day or night. This morning was scrambled eggs with a thick slice of fresh-baked bread, slathered in marion blackberry jam, and big cup o' coffee on the side.

    1. Me too. Remember when we were young and hung out half the night then we'd hit the greasy spoon for ham and eggs...remember?
