This morning I woke up with the strangest feeling… I didn’t feel tired! Last night was the first night in (what seems like) forever, that Elle has actually slept through the night. At first, I was in a bit of a panic, fearing that I had forgotten to turn the baby monitor on and had just not heard my poor baby calling for me all night. But, it was on, and fully functional, so I breathed a big sigh of relief and just enjoyed my pillows for a minute. What to do after an eight hour sleep? Make some eggs for breakfast!
There is not a single variation of eggs that I do not enjoy. Scrambled, poached, sunny side up, give me ALL the eggs! (OK, maybe not pickled eggs. Those just seem scary.) I am going to share my super awesome trick to making the perfect over easy eggs. I have struggled along the years trying to flip my eggs to make them over easy (this usually end up breaking the yolk and then I end up with scrambled mess…good thing Shaun likes his scrambled!)
Here we go: simply start by making your eggs as you would sunny side up. Spray your pan with some non-stick spray, like Pam. Heat your pan for a minute, crack your eggs and cook on high for about 3-4 minutes. Keep cooking until all the whites have solidified and the edges start to bubble, Your eggs will probably start to screech and yell at you at this point. Now, turn those eggies all the way down to low and cover them with a lid to a pot for about 1-2 minutes. Watch them to make sure they don’t overcook! “Constant vigilance!” (Harry Potter reference, anyone?)
And voila! Eggs over east with a dash of salt, pepper, and some Frank’s Red Hot!
