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.
