Have you ever ordered eggs at a restaurant and looked blankly at the server when she asked how you wanted them cooked? You’ve heard all the terms before, like over easy, over hard and sunny-side up, but for the life of you, you really don’t know what they mean and what the difference is. The server is impatient with you, she’s already had a long day, her feet are tired, and she’s tapping her pencil against her pad and you know she’s thinking what an idiot you are. So you stumble and trip over your words in your rush to describe what you want, so you can stop wasting her precious time. She sighs and tells you what you really mean and then walks away and you think you will remember the correct term the next time you order fried eggs. But you don’t remember and so the cycle begins all over again.
I used to have this problem a lot, especially since the way I liked my eggs cooked doesn’t seem to have a standard term. I loved fried eggs where the yolk was broken right after the egg hit the hot pan. And then the whole thing would get flipped and cooked on both sides. I don’t want the yolk to be cooked whole, so it’s not an over hard egg. But it’s not scrambled either. Is there a proper term for that, does anyone know? I am pretty sure I pissed off legions of wait staff by a lengthy description of how I wanted my eggs cooked.
But lately I have a serious craving for fried eggs with runny yolks. Sunny side up or over easy, I don’t care which, as long as that yolk oozes out all over my plate. All the better if I have something delicious underneath with which to sop up the runny, oozy yolk. Like these low carb savoury cheddar waffles, a recipe that I developed ages ago and am only sharing with you right now. We eat these for dinner fairly often and my kids get so excited when they know there will be waffles and eggs for dinner. Or Brinner, really, that wonderful combination of breakfast food at dinner time. It makes everyone happy, it seems and it’s one of those meals you can guarantee everyone will eat. And with everyone prepping for big fancy meals on Thanksgiving, having a simple but delicious Brinner recipe is the order of the day.
These waffles are perfect for soaking up the delicious runny yolks of your over easy or sunny side up eggs. And I promise I won’t tap my pencil impatiently against my pad while you make up your mind on how you want your eggs cooked.
