A single large egg (50g) contains approximately 77 calories, 5 grams of fat, 1 gram of sugar, 6 grams of protein, calcium, iron, and vitamin A. Their multiple ways of preparation influence me to believe that the egg is one of the most versatile foods for breakfast. When pared with vegetables and mixed fruit (mixed-in or as side dishes) you have composed one healthy breakfast. Score! You are one step closer to crossing off "eating healthy" from that pesky Resolution List.
Step 1 : Choose your poison aka the desired egg(s) I have chosen farm fresh eggs compliments of my chickens (we call them "The Girls").
Step 3 - Crack Egg(s) into skillet. Lower heat after about 1-2 minutes.
Step 4 - Cover skillet with lid so the trapped heat allows the yolk of the egg to cook.
Step 5 - Approximately 2-3 minutes later depending on the heat of the burner, remove the lid and season egg(s) if desired. My personal favorites include cracked pepper and Italian seasoning.
Step 6 - Determining when the egg is "done" will vary with the likes and preferences of each person. Test the consistency of the yolk by poking it with a fork, tooth pick, and etc.
I hope this step by step process to eggcellence will help you in the future. How do you like your eggs? Do share by leaving a comment. As always, keep on the sunny side.
