Sunny side up eggs

Being a foodie, for me, means finding fresh and fun ways to gussy up the tastes and recipes we love those things that have been around for aeons, those things we grew up with, and those things that our mamas probably made for usyep, those childhood eats that probably seared big memories into our minds for Sunnyside Lace Eggs.

Egg breakfast recipes

Breakfast with citrus-drenched salmon skewers was always a big deal in our house growing up. Mom, a hard-working single parent with little luxuries to make life easier, should have taken the easy way out and let us kids either not eat breakfast or eat anything that was just easy and quick, but no, she got up at the crack of dawn every morning during the school year and made a hot breakfast for us four kids, which she had known for decades.

Quick recipes for breakfast

Here, Mom never had time to make something fancy with 5 tips to boho your fall table, but all of these ingredients were served up one way or another during the week, so here’s to you, Mom, for setting a foundation for life that meant sacrifice for you and prosperity for me.

Eggs in a skillet

In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the oil over low heat until it shimmers slightly, around 5 minutes. Crack an egg into a shallow ramekin and carefully pour it into the skillet; do the same for the other egg, applying it to the opposite side of the skillet. Cover with a close lid and cook for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, or until the whites are fully fixed but the yolks are still runny. Take the eggs from the skillet and put them on a plate or toast. Salt and pepper to taste.

Easy foods for eggs

One of the easiest foods to prepare is sunny side up eggs and Balsamic Basil Pan Seared Chicken. We’ve all had ones that were scorched on the bottom and raw on top, rubbery, or just plain greasy. So, today, I’m going to teach you how to make sunny side up eggs using my tried-and-true process. It’s simple and convenient, and it doesn’t require any special equipment or ingredients. Olive oil, milk, and a decent nonstick skillet are what you’ll need! Even then, the eggs still turn out fine, with tender, just-set whites and runny yolks. Create a batch for breakfast or toss one in with every meal for a shot of protein. They’re sure to be tasty no matter how you eat them.

Non stick pan eggs

And sure to use a proper nonstick pan for fresh herb arugula penne pasta & parmesan. It’s bad enough that eggs adhere to a frying pan, but washing it is much worse. Cook sunny side up eggs in a nontoxic, nonstick skillet with a lid to prevent mangled eggs and a messy plate. I almost always cook eggs in my GreenPan skillets.
Alternatively, use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet. If you don’t have a nonstick grill, you should use a well-seasoned cast iron skillet instead. Use more oil than you can in a nonstick skillet, enough to brush the bottom of the pan generously. Be sure the oil is hot before adding the eggs to avoid sticking.

How to cook eggs

Each egg should be cracked into its own bowl or ramekin. Until cracking the eggs into the pan, crack each one into a separate bowl or ramekin to prevent damaging the yolks. Heat a pan over low heat and sprinkle it with olive oil when you’re about to serve. After that, gently spill each egg into the pan. Cook them on a low heat for a long time. The bottoms of the eggs will burn until the whites are fully cooked if you cook them at too high a temperature. Low heat is essential for evenly cooking the egg whites while retaining a perfect runny yolk.

Make the best eggs with Za’atar

Regulation of heat here is critical. Excessive heat and whites tighten up and tan on the edges. Not enough, and by the time the whites are set, the yolks cook partly. Listen to the pot and see the whites for details about the heating of your pot. Za’atar is a spice that is used to add aroma and taste to your eggs. All you need to do is to sprinkle it and taste your dish.

Eggs for kids

We use in this dish a little extra oil, just enough to grind. You can position the whites without covering the pan and stitching the yolks with your hot oil basket. The basting does not wash the salt and pepper season after the eggs are done.

Cooking eggs at home

Heat oil over medium-low in an 8-inch, non stick pot. Squeeze the eggs in a pan gently. You shouldn’t listen to a hiss, so the eggs can lie still and flat. Turn the heat down if the whites are fluttering or bubbling. Cook for 3 minutes or until most of the whites are set with some runny whites close to the yolks.

Eggs in a pan

Tilt a bowl towards you so that the oil bottom is bathed; dip a spoon in the oil and gently tilt the uncooked white patches until set. Make sure you don’t bind the yolks or they cloud like cataracts. Pepper and salt sprinkle. Remove the pan’s eggs and leave behind the excess oil.

Za’atar Sausage Skewers & a Sunnyside Egg

For me being a foodie means discovering new and exciting ways to gussy up the flavors and ingredients we love


  • 4 (10”) skewers (previously soaked in water for about 10 minutes)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 medium sized baking potato, skin on and cut into 8 cubes
  • 2 small apples, skin on cut into 8 equal sized wedges
  • 1 small sweet onion, cut into 4 quarters
  • 8 sausage links each cut into three equal sized pieces
  • ½ tsp. sea salt (divided)
  • 1 ¾ tsp. za’atar seasoning (divided)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Fresh flat parsley sprigs for garnish


Coat an outdoor grill with cooking spray. Heat to about 400 to 450 degrees. Proceed to preparing the skewers.

Put the potato cubes in a microwavable bowl covered with a lid and microwave on high for 90 seconds. Remove, take off the lid, and let the potatoes cool by tossing them around.

Each skewer will have (in this order): apple wedge, two sausage pieces, potato, two sausage pieces, apple wedge, onion quarter, two sausage pieces, and potato. Coat each finished skewer (all sides) well with cooking spray. Combine ¼ teaspoon salt and 1 ½ teaspoon of the za’tar in a small bowl. Sprinkle on the skewers (both sides).

Place the skewers on the hot grill. Close the lid and let them cook about 4-5 minutes, then carefully turn them and cook another 4-5 minutes. When done carefully remove to a plate and prepare the eggs.

Coat a 10” non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Turn heat to medium low. Crack each egg in the skillet (leaving space between them). Sprinkle with the remaining salt. Cover with a lid and let the eggs steam about 4-5 minutes or until the yolks are soft, yellow and the whites are about done. Remove to a plate and sprinkle each egg with the remaining za’tar. Beside each egg, place two grill skewers.
