What can I say? Eggs: they are sold by the dozen (12), but can also come in packs of six (6) or eighteen (18). They range in size from Medium to Jumbo, they are from hens that are either 1) factory-farmed (caged); 2) “cage-free” (not in a cage); 3) “free-range” (not in a cage, and must have access to an outdoor space); 4) “organic” (fed a prescribed organic feed regardless of cage-status); 5) “Omega-3” (fed an enriched feed); or 6) “pasture raised” (free-roam in open fields). They can cost between $1.35 to $9.99, and are typically with either a white or brown shell. (If you are curious about the USDA’s roll, this is a link to their blog [dated Feb. 21, 2017]).

And, after all-that – Eggs! They are cheap, healthy, and often easy to prepare. They can be transformed into an innumerable number of dishes, and – really, what’s not to love?

How To:

  1. Prepare your rice, I recommend using a Rice Cooker. Follow the same water-to-rice ratio instructions per the rice you are using. Press “Start/Steam” – let cook, and then the rice will remain in the “keep warm” for as long as you would like.
  2. Place about 1/2-to-1 Tablespoon of oil in your pan.
  3. Heat oil on medium to medium-high heat.
  4. Crack your egg(s) into the hot oil.
  5. Fry until the clear of the egg has just turned white
  6. With a wide-spatula, lift the egg, flipping-it-over while putting it back into the pan. Cook the other-side of the egg briefly.
  7. Alternatively – the “no-flipping” way 😉 – is to tilt the pan, gathering the hot oil into a puddle, spoon the oil over-top of the yolk, and finish frying the top of the egg with this hot oil.
  8. Place on top of a warm bowl of rice, season & garnish.

Kidwise: My kids prefer their yolk hard, or, moreover – scrambled! But it is really very easy to take and prepare individual orders, it all pretty much boils down to some sort of fried egg. ^5
