Do you love eggs?
What’s your favourite way to eat them?
Some people prefer them scrambled, poached, hard boiled, sunny-side up, over easy, the list goes on.
One of my favourite ways to eat eggs is over easy! But, it takes skill to flip them without breaking the yolks and not overcooking them once you do.
I’ve discovered a super easy way to make over easy eggs! The yolk stays intact and there’s no flipping involved.
The best part is, you don’t need to use any fat to do it!
My family and I love eggs. We raise chickens, feed them organically and have been enjoying pasture-raised eggs from happy chickens for almost 2 years. It’s been a great experience for the entire family. My children have learned chicken keeping and a passion for animals. They’ve also learned where eggs come from.
The best part of these eggs is the yolk! It’s dark, creamy and thick like caramel! It barely needs any bread to soak it up. There’s nothing like it.
I’ve tried countless ways to prepare my eggs – boiled, scrambled, fried, over easy, omelettes, poached and frittatas.
My favourite part of the egg is the yolk and my favourite way to enjoy it is “over easy”. However, the preparation of over easy can be complicated. Often the first flip to yolk down, happens without a hitch. But what if your frying pan is sticky and the yolk side catches and breaks when flipping back? Another problem that often happens to me is once I make the first flip over, how long to fry it before it’s ready? It’s easy to overcook the yolk and I prefer mine runny.
I don’t use a lot of olive oil when frying, but if you’d prefer a fat-free experience, then it’s difficult using the traditional frying pan approach.
I’ve discovered an easy and fat-free method to make over easy eggs.
How to Make the Easiest Over Easy Eggs
Here’s how I do it:
- 1. Heat your frying pan until hot on medium-high heat.
- 2. Pour water on the base of the frying pan, until just covered.
- 3. After the water heats up and is visibly hot, break your eggs into the frying pan, as you would when frying them over easy.
- 4. Cover your frying pan with a pot lid and cook until whites are firm.
- 5. Continue to cook your eggs until yolks are cooked to your preference.
- 6. Using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove your eggs to a plate or flat bowl.
- 7. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Since I’ve discovered this approach, I love cooking my eggs in this way. The eggs are cooked like poached, but look like fried eggs. I season mine with salt and pepper and enjoy them with a spoon.
