The Veggie Trick To Prevent Your Fried Eggs From Spreading
By KATHERINE BECK
While frying an egg sounds easy enough, it’s not uncommon for the egg to spread around the pan after it’s been cracked, creating a final result that is unattractive and unevenly cooked. To achieve an egg that’s nicely-shaped and perfectly cooked every time, all you need is a vegetable that you likely have in your fridge.
To cook the perfect fried egg, pull out an onion or a bell pepper; an onion ring will result in a round egg, while a bell pepper ring will give you a more irregular shape. The trick involves slicing a ½-inch ring from the onion or pepper, placing it in the pan, and then cracking the egg directly into the ring and letting it cook.
To cut an onion or bell pepper into rings, use a knife to slice the vegetable across its width, then simply separate it into individual rings. Take your rings and let them cook medium heat for 3 minutes, then flip them over and crack an egg inside each one before covering them and cooking the eggs for about 7 to 8 minutes.
