Are you ready to learn how to fry an egg for a biscuit sandwich? We’re going to need a biscuit to pull this off, so if you need a good biscuit recipe I’ve got the best one right here, you may want to start there and work your way back here if you don’t already have some left over. They only require 6 ingredients and take about a half an hour to make, and they’re worth every minute!
Full disclosure, I don’t like runny yolks. At all. So this How To is geared towards people like me who like a nice fully fried egg on a biscuit with cheese and a little sea salt and pepper (or the seasoning of your choice, I don’t judge) I also use olive oil because I like the subtle flavor it adds. If you prefer a different kind of oil, cheese, heck even if you want to dump katsup on it. It’s your food make it yours!
We start with a lightly oiled pan, you want just enough oil to coat the bottom but not enough to drown your egg, maybe 1 tbsp in a small pan
Then heat it up to Medium Low and crack an egg directly into the pan
Here comes most likely the most important part for me. Those of you who prefer your eggs fully cooked and have ever ordered an egg in a restaurant know that the term you’ve been told to use is ‘over hard’, and what you’ve probably also experienced is what I consider one of the absolute bane’s of my existence; the still gelatinous yolk problem. When you want your egg fully cooked through, you want it fully. cooked. through. No solid chunk of yellow goop somewhere approximately middling the perfectly cooked white. To get it, you have to carefully and methodically break the yolk and kind of spread it around so it relatively evenly sits on the white and the whole ‘patty’ cooks through together.
EXACTLY LIKE THAT.
At this point I like to grind some fresh sea salt and pepper onto the egg, while it’s still soft so it cooks in there. Then wait a few minutes for it to get relatively solid, and sprinkle on some shredded cheese, mmmmm
What we’re going to do now is make kind of a mini omelet, which traps the cheese inside and makes the whole thing a good size to put into our biscuit
While the cheese is melting and the outside is getting just a little crispy, if your biscuits aren’t fresh out of the oven (maybe you made them yesterday, like me) you can pop them into a toaster oven for a minute or two while you finish up with the egg, I like it when my biscuit is nice and warm too
One for me and one for the hubs, aren’t I nice?
You’ll want to slice them before you put them in the toaster or you’ll end up having to do it while playing hot potato with the biscuit like I did this morning, ouch! Once the biscuit is warm and the cheese is melted just lay the egg/cheese/seasoning patty onto the bottom of the biscuit
Add the top and vuala! Breakfast! If you’re like my husband you may need some nice ‘fried’ potatoes or more than one sandwich but for me this is just the right amount of yum to get me started in the morning, especially if I have some cold pressed coffee to go with it! But that’s a post for another day….
