Easy Over Easy (Cheater's Poached Eggs)

Hi, guys! Hope you are all well.  My husband and I like to put aside time on Sundays to have a nice leisurely breakfast. My work schedule has me gone at an ungodly hour weekdays.  I thought I would share a fun tip I learned a while back from the Food Network.  My husband loves his eggs over easy.  I would make them and the yolks would break from time to time.  It was annoying, to say the least.   Now when I am making a pan of eggs, I put them in the pan and when they first set, I pour a bit of boiling water in the pan and put a lid on it.  They cook perfectly and you just have to take them out - and no breakage.  I like to call them cheater's poached eggs. The yolks are runny and the whites are set perfectly.


Hope this tip is helpful.  More importantly, I hope you take and set some time aside on a day off to enjoy a quiet leisurely breakfast with those you love!

Off to get my fingers inky so I can share some inky goodness with you soon!

Until next time!

This is the way my dad taught me to make eggs and it works a lot easier for runny eggs than trying to flip them in the over easy method. Great tips!

Is it weird that I don't like eggs over easy but I like poached eggs? lol

I'll have to give this a try.

I figured out how to do this too! By accident, actually, but it works all the same with poured water too. So tasty!

Winnie - great tip! I am out of eggs and it is early on a sunday morning and this looks so yummy! Perhaps pancakes will have to do today...or fruit salad and toast? My son and I love to eat breakfast together in our sunny kitchen nook - well we pretend it is sunny - this is Seattle after all...
Hugs,
Jill

That is a neat little trick! I love my eggs over-easy as well. Especially with hashbrowns which I mixed up. Your bisquits looked really yummy too!

oooo! I can't wait to try that out! I break my egg yolks every so often, and there is nothing as disappointing as a cooked yolk when you want a runny one. thanks for the tip!

What a great tip - I'll have to remember that!

Great tip! I think my husband would like these! If he breaks a yolk he will just throw it out (can you believe that!) So I eat a lot of broken yolks : )
