Versatility, thy name is “egg”.
When I am busy with a lot of other dishes on Sundays’ special brunches, I sometimes just steam fry the eggs.
When you think about it, all methods that keep the egg whole produce something that gets munged up as soon as it hits your other ingredients on the plate anyway, so poached, fried, steam-fried, soft boiled, etc., it’s pretty much all the same thing.
A bit of a mist with my trusty spray bottle, and then a cover, turns these eggs perfect in just a couple of minutes without having to flip them.
If you are feeling wild and crazy, some shredded sharp Cheddar cheese melts nicely. A sprinkle of smoked paprika, and a few scattered scallion pieces make this into a gloriously-decorated dish to slide onto a plate with some other delicious things like a nice breakfast meat, polenta, a pancake, French toast, or as one friend does – an avocado – that will make your breakfast memorable.
BREAKFAST – It’s not just for breakfast any more! ;->
