Basted Eggs

Basted Eggs


Rudy loves these eggs basted hard. They are a cross between poached and fried. You can cook them to your preference; I like basted soft myself, served with toast. You need a fry pan with a lid, glass is best, so you can watch for doneness.

Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 2

Cook Time : 3

Total Time : 5


Serves 1

  • 1tablespoon butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1⁄4 cup water


  • 01

    Heat butter until melted; add eggs.

  • 02

    Fry until white is starting to set.

  • 03

    Salt and pepper to taste.

  • 04

    Add water and cover immediately; some people add less water but I like a little more. The steam will cook the top of eggs; it takes just a minute or so, depending on how well done you like your eggs. Hard will be just like hard boiled eggs, that yellow color.

    I serve these with toast and fried potatoes, just like over easy eggs.
