Easy Way to Cook Fried Eggs

Hello, hello! I'm still just not at 100%, so my sweet friend Richella from Imparting Grace agreed to swing by and share a guest post with us today. She has one of those "light-bulb moment" recipes for us...the easiest way to fry an egg I've ever seen!

Please welcome Richella!
Mother's Day is this weekend--a time for thanksgiving and reflection on all the wonderful things about being a mother.

My boys have taught me many things over the years.  In 22 years of being a mom, I've learned to expect to learn things from them. One thing I never expected to learn from them, though? How to fry an egg.

I mean, seriously. I've been frying eggs for more than 40 years. What else could there be to learn?

Once more, I stand humbled. My son just taught me a bit of cooking magic that I'll share with you: the world's easiest, fastest way to fry an egg. No kidding.

Use a small, microwave-safe bowl. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. Break an egg into the bowl.

Pierce the yolk and mix it into the white just a little.

Microwave for 30 seconds. The egg will make popping sounds in the microwave, but if you've pierced the yolk it shouldn't explode. If you like, you can stick a toothpick into the yolk and leave it in while microwaving; this should prevent too much popping.

Remove bowl from microwave (Careful! It'll be hot!) and flip egg over with a fork or small spatula.
Microwave for another 15-30 seconds. Season as desired.

This makes a fried egg that's the perfect size and shape for a breakfast sandwich. My oldest son likes a sandwich made with an English muffin, a piece of cheese, and a couple of strips of bacon on his fried egg. My youngest son likes the same thing, but prefers to use two frozen waffles instead of an English muffin.

Of course, my metabolism is not quite the same as my boys', so I don't get to indulge in quite the same breakfast sandwiches as theirs. Still, one of these eggs on a light multi-grain English muffin makes a tasty and nutritious breakfast. For 170 calories and 5 grams of fat I get 11 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber.  Not bad.

My hat is off to the chef! I'm grateful to still be learning from these fellows!

I am so going to try this! Thank you so much for sharing with us, Richella!
