Saturday morning I woke up to a quiet house. Everyone was away for the weekend so it was just me, the baby, and Unkas.
I enjoy a quiet moment every now and then, but on this particular morning with no plans for the day, I was missing my family. For a little taste of home, I decided to make a breakfast my dad would make for me if he was here or I was there.
I started by slowly brewing a small pot of regular coffee instead of quickly popping in the usual K-Cup. My brewed coffee never matches up to my dad's but this pot was pretty close. Growing up, whenever my dad made breakfast, it was always dunkin' eggs! My sister and I would ask for them all the time. In fact, on a spring break road trip to Florida, we stopped at a restaurant for breakfast and the waitress was pretty confused when we ordered "dunkin' eggs"! My dad quickly explained to her that they were really eggs over easy but in our house, we call them dunkin' eggs. :)
Here is how I made them...
Start by spraying your Mini Egg Skillet (It's the bomb!) with non-stick spray. Heat it over low to medium heat. Crack one egg into the skillet being careful not to break the yolk. After just about two minutes when the white part look almost cooked, drop a little bit of water into the skillet along the edge (I used a straw dipped in a glass of water as a dropper.) and cover with a lid to create steam for about a mintue. This way the whites will finish cooking leaving the yolks runny and you don't have to flip the egg! Transfer the egg to your plate. Cook second egg the same way. Add salt and pepper to taste. Note: If you do use the Mini Egg Skillet, you'll have to cook each egg separately as opposed to two or more at a time if you were using a larger skillet. Serve with buttered toast, bacon, and berries for a complete breakfast meal!
ahhh :) This breakfast and call home made my morning better. Now, I can get on with my day!
