Basted Eggs: Easier Than Poached and Better Than Fried

A friend recently introduced me to basted eggs and I have gotten hooked!

To me, they seem like a cross between fried eggs and poached eggs.  Basted eggs are quicker to make than poached eggs because you don't have to simmer water, but the white of a basted egg is still tender and delicate unlike a fried egg where it can sometimes get crispy and chewy.

How to Baste an Egg

  • Melt 1 tsp butter in a skillet.
  • Crack an egg into the skillet.
  • Pour 1 T. water over the egg.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Quickly cover the skillet with a lid to trap the steam as it evaporates and cook the egg.
  • Cook until it has reached your desired done-ness.  I like my white hard and my yolk runny.
