|Eggs Over Easy with Gruyere Cheese|
With this chaos awaiting us every night, it is no wonder that I really like to cook up simple foods for the family, especially in the morning. Here is a recipe that I saw on The Chew the other day while I was running on the treadmill in the gym. While I am not a big fan of the show, it is something to watch while I am running out my miles. Mario Batali demonstrated one of his favorite meals to make for himself while his family is away, Duck Eggs Over Easy with Fontina. Since I did not have duck eggs (which sounds amazing to me) and no fontina, I improvised. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. This is what I did:
|Cooked hen eggs sunny side up on medium heat with melted butter until inner whites are firm with melted butter.|
Then, topped with Gruyere cheese.
|Gently flipped egg over to cook over easy for 15 seconds.|
I did baste it with a little butter.
|Did the other side as well. Be careful NOT to over cook.|
Should take a little less than 15 seconds more.
|Finally, I topped toasted wheat bread with the over easy eggs. Sprinkled salt and pepper and more cheese over eggs.|
Next time, I will use a heartier whole wheat bread that this meal deserves.
What takes do you have on making this dish even better?
