it’s no big secret around these parts that i don’t do a lot of cooking. baking? obviously. cooking? uhnotsomuch. it’s not really my thing. there too many options. too many things you can change. so much ambiguity. i like baking because there is a process. a system. it makes sense for my type A brain.
but, paolo works until almost 11 most nights… and well, if you know me. that’s waaaaay too late for dinner (and past my bedtime if we’re being honest). i was getting a little tired of cereal and pre-packaged trader joes meals so, i started making breakfast sandwiches for dinner. brinner, people! it’s thee shiiiet.
listen. my over easy egg game is HOT FIIIYYYAAAA. do you see that egg? it’s magnificent! the white is all the way cooked through. the egg yolk is still runny and buttery. topped with a little sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, and red pepper flakes. i told paolo to watch out. i’m steppin’ up my game.
the key to making an egg like this is low heat, it takes about 5 minutes after the pan has warmed up. toss in a little bit of butter, crack the egg, and then let it do the work.
dinner=english muffin with a slice of munster cheese, a slice of prosciutto, over easy egg, and half an avocado.
