I won’t spend a lot of time talking about my past relationship with eggs. Let’s just say we’re in a much better place now. When I need a quick meal for myself or hubby, my latest go-to is a fried egg sandwich. (The kids have yet to get on board, but I haven’t given up hope.)
My favorite rendition is a toasted English muffin with strawberry jam and spinach. I know this is weird, but I love it anyway. Hubby puts his egg atop a pile of bacon and cheese.
I recently learned how to fry an egg without it getting rubbery. These tips made the difference.
- Buy a good skillet. This is the first step in pretty much any recipe I talk about, but I can’t stress enough the importance of quality cookware. It’s means you get a whole egg on your plate instead of leaving half of it stuck to the pan.
- Use medium-high heat. When the burner is too high, the edges get crispy before the rest of the egg is done. I’m not a fan of crunchy eggs.
- Oil, water and cover. You’ll need a little oil or butter, depending on the type of pan you use. I mist my skillet with olive oil. Once you drop in the egg, add a tablespoons of water and cover. The steam will cook the egg in just a couple of minutes.
Here’s a pic of my finished product. I’d love to hear about your quick and easy meals!
