Happy Saturday, Friends! The best Saturday’s are those where you can take your time in the morning because you have no plans for the day, which allow for a work session and tons of coffee. Those are my favorite anyways!
After doing some work this morning and sipping coffee, lunch time rolled around and I was getting hungry! I enjoyed turkey bacon (nitrate & preservative free), organic strawberries, and an english muffin. I had peanut butter on one half and cheese and an over easy egg (cage free organic) on the other.
I’m actually not a huge fan of eggs, they are very bland to me and I can’t eat them plain like many can. I can only eat hard boiled eggs if they are turned into deviled eggs, or if they are chopped up in a salad. I wish I could eat them plain, but I just can’t. They need seasoning, cheese, protein, or veggies in order for me to enjoy them on their own .
One of my favorite ways to cook an egg is over easy! I love the runny yolk over toast.
To cook my eggs, I heat a pan on medium-high heat and lightly spray with organic coconut oil (avocado oil is ideal). When the pan is hot, I crack my egg into the pan and let it cook for a few short minutes, if that. I always season my eggs with organic garlic and onion powder, black pepper, and today I added crushed red pepper for a hint of spice. Watch the egg closely so it doesn’t cook through!
When the egg white is almost cooked through on the top, I immediately turn the heat off and carefully flip (more like roll) the egg so the yolk side is down. I let it sit this way for less than a minute- you just want the rest of the egg white to finish cooking, while not allowing the yolk to cook through.
Finished product! Sorry about the quality of this picture- it was a screenshot from my insta-story.
What is your favorite way to enjoy eggs?
