Deep fried eggs!

Eggs fresh cooked in coconut oil along with perfect french-fries

A few months ago a friend of mind suggested that I try deep-fried sweet potatoes.  He said they were good for you.  Well, I tried making both deep-fried yams and sweet potatoes – what a messy experiment!  They tasted good but were very soft.  The texture was not pleasing to me.  So I began to experiment with making true french-fries.  I love hash-browns in the morning and I have plenty of coconut oil so for the past month I have been experimenting with this and finally, after several messes, have gotten to the point where I can make french fries perfect with no mess – YAY!

So today I was making a nice batch of french-fries for breakfast and afterwards wondered how eggs would cook in oil instead of in water.

Well, I am here to report that they cook up quite well deep-fried in coconut oil!   The eggs hold together well and the yokes don’t easily harden.  The eggs also don’t stick to the pan.  They taste a little french-friesy but that makes sense cuz I just made french-fries with that same oil.

Probably not the best thing for you, but I thought coconut oil would be relatively good for me.  I now keep the oil in the fridge and have reused it several times, greatly reducing the cost of making such a lovely dish.

If you should decide to rent Lifewater Ranch in BnB style, I’d be glad to make some for you for breakfast.
