Egg Porn…Mmm Hello!

My current obsessions: nude lipsticks, ripped tees, this song, talenti gelato, salt water taffy, and last but not least..SEXY LOOKING EGGS.

Slap an egg on a burger, ah.. yeah!

The drippy, runny, oh-so-gooey, bright-as-the-sun yolk does it for me. I know not everybody agrees with me on this–but this is my blog so ha! I am going to gush about my love for a barely cooked egg as much as I want!

Ohhhh baby…

Eggs are one of those ingredients that can transform into countless different types of noms all depending on your style and cooking mood. There’s the basic boiled, fried, or poached egg. From there we go into salads, omelettes, frittatas, quiches, devil and tea eggs- oh the possibilities!

I remember watching Mind of a Chef religiously and there was this one entire episode where David Chang played around with eggs. Chang puffed the eggs into balloons and garnished with BACON DASHI. He poached freshly whisked yolks into a whirlpool of water. He even perfectly plated the Ko egg made famous in his New York restaurant momofuku. Mmmm I still daydream of my two experiences there.

Similar to rice or potatoes, eggs are found in most cultural foods. I made this super simple breakfast of spam (hehehe), a carefully fried egg, and white rice. I thought it was just an asian thing, but my boyfriend’s mum who is Puerto Rican totally went nuts! Comfort food on all levels & in all areas–I love it.

Ko egg.. err my heart cracking

Here’s my little (unnecessary) recipe!

Ingredients:

1 Organic Egg
1 Cup freshly steamed jasmine rice
1/2 Cup diced and fried SPAM! (optional)
Soy sauce or sea salt
Togarashi, crushed pepper flakes or just cracked pepper

Directions:

1. Heat up a skillet to medium high heat with a little vegetable oil.

2. Crack the egg and bask in the excitement! Mmmm..

3. After a minute or two of frying I add a few drops of water and cover to cook the top
part of the egg. The cardiac-style is adding more oil and basting the egg- I do whatever I feel like.

4. This should only take about 3 minutes max! Any more time and you will severely risk the result of an overcooked egg, ughh..yuck.

5. Scoop freshly steamed jasmine rice into your bowl and top with your SPAM, beautiful baby eggie poo, and add some dimension with all your peppers and flakes!
