All lessons in the Eggs section:
Fried eggs, as well as basted eggs and poached eggs, are popular breakfast items. These skills are not difficult to master but once you get the hang of them, you will be able to quickly and expertly handle the first and most important meal of the day.
In this lesson, you will learn how to properly pan fry eggs. You will learn how to season and cook eggs to the desired doneness – from sunny-side up all the way to over-hard and even crispy. You will also learn what basted eggs are and how to cook them to the desired doneness. Finally, you will learn how to properly poach eggs to a soft – medium – or hard doneness. You will also learn about the different types of liquids used to poach eggs, including butter, and how to poach eggs ahead of time to make service that much easier.
Whether served for breakfast, brunch or as part of a main dish, properly-cooked eggs are the sign of a good cook. With just a bit of practice, you will be able to fry, baste and poach eggs like a pro.
