Now take a look at the naked eggs dancing on the pan...
When we are eating out, we always eat eggs with something. In an omelette, or a sandwich, or a toast to soak up the runny but gooey yolk, or whatever. Because the list will goes on and on if I were to continue to write about it.
There are many different terms to describe fried eggs. But the common ones that we usually recognised is fried eggs, sunny side up or over-easy ...
- A style known simply as 'fried' — eggs are fried on both sides with the yolks broken until set or hard. This is what I'm doing now... And I love it.
- 'Sunny side up' — cooked only on one side; yolk is liquid; the egg white is often still a bit runny as well.
- 'Over easy' cooked on both sides; the yolk is a light runny and the egg white is not fully cooked. It's also commonly referred to as dippy eggs. (Dipping toast into the yolk while eating).
My beautiful 荷包蛋 (Wallet Eggs) with fish sauce dressing. Why is it fish sauce? Because eggs and fish sauce is "perfect-match". You could use the traditional way by using soy sauce. I do, sometimes. Depends on my mood. I could even caramelized it with a gently burnt soy sauce. I think this is the best and simple way to enjoy fried eggs.
So, are you gonna fry some Wallet Eggs for yourself tonight?
