After a long drought and much rationing of fall eggs, we were surprised with 2 eggs one morning and 4 the next. They have decided that the pile of hoarded baling twine is a good place to lay. It IS real twine after all, not the orange plastic stuff.
To me, fried eggs slightly over easy is the only way to eat eggs. Unfortunately, I live with other people, so have to compromise MUCH too often. Deviled eggs come in a close second, but again I am the only one who thinks so.
I got up extra early this AM and made some JUST for myself. I cut the potatoes into small matchsticks and fried them up in coconut oil first. I did one batch, then decided I wanted more and did another batch. I started to get hungry, so didn't let the second batch cook as long as the first...hence the two tone fries. The eggs were then added to the pan after the fries were removed. I like to cook them until the whites are mostly solid, then flip 'em and serve immediately. Add a little salt and pepper and you're good to go.
I got a little impatient with my spatula and ended up serving pre broken. Taste is fabulous and much appreciated. Considering most of our grass and grubs have been under a thick layer of snow for a few weeks now, the eggs have amazingly good color.
