Eggs has a magical nature, and I consider it a gift from God that I am able to consume them on a regular basis. If you know how to utilize them effectively, they have an almost infinite amount of potential applications, and they can go you very far. On the other hand, the invention of my song of praise dates back just a short while ago. In the past, when asked about my feelings for eggs, I would have said that I was “not really an egg person.”
Prior to this, I didn’t much like eating eggs in any preparation other than poached or boiled eggs. I’ve now changed my mind. They are not necessary to my life. As part of my efforts to build up my tolerance for eggs, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with different ways to cook them and discovering new dishes that go well with them. When I found out about this hilarious hack for a garlic-laced fried egg from Chef Hailee on TikTok, my eyes went “awooga” like a cartoon wolf that had just fallen in love. Chef Hailee is a TikTok star.
Instructions on How to Make Fried Eggs with Garlic and Fry Them
Catalano can be seen in the video beginning the process of slicing garlic bulbs using the palm of her hand while working on a mandoline. To tell you the truth, I had some reservations about this approach, and as a result, I steered clear of using it. When preparing garlic cloves, I find that it is simplest to first secure them on a cutting board and then use a traditional chef’s knife. This is because garlic cloves are relatively small and have the potential to get dislodged very fast.
The timing of this meal is very important to its overall success. There is a window of around 0.001 seconds during which excellent may deteriorate into absolutely bad, and you want the garlic cloves to be crisp but not charred. Before turning on the flame, I sliced the garlic very thinly using a very sharp knife. After that, I put the garlic and some neutral oil in a cold, nonstick pan and turned on the heat. I push the cloves into a small circle, add my cold egg, and then coax my crispy garlic slices to hop onto the egg white raft when they are still mostly white but just starting to turn golden around the edges. I do this while the garlic slices are at the stage where they are just beginning to turn golden. This was carried out when the cloves were still predominantly white but had just begun to turn golden.
After seasoning my egg with salt and pepper, I followed the directions in the video and placed a lid on the pan for a brief length of time so that the steam could cook the egg white. This allowed the egg white to retain its runny consistency. After a few minutes, exactly as I had predicted, the egg was done; but, as a result of the steam, the garlic had formed into a paste. I probably could have continued cooking it for a few seconds longer, uncovered, just to re-crisp the slices, but I didn’t because I didn’t want to run the risk of either burning the slices or overcooking the yolk. Instead, I let it rest for a few seconds and then removed it from the heat. Next time, before I add the egg and cover it, I’m going to remove a few of the crispy garlic slices, drain them on a paper towel, and put them aside. After that, I’ll add the egg and cover it. Because of this, I will have an increased supply of crispy garlic to sprinkle on top.
My Thoughts Regarding the Fried Egg with Garlic and Fried Onions
In general, the process of preparing the meal is straightforward; nevertheless, it does need a high degree of intuition on your side and complete concentration of all of your attention. Avoiding the preparation of this meal is recommended for those who are prone to making hasty decisions while juggling many responsibilities. I didn’t have the slightest bit of a question in my mind that it would be delicious, and sure enough, that was the case! If you are able to retain concentration for a period of six minutes during which you are forced to think about nothing but garlic and eggs, then you should give this one a try. I would suggest giving it a try if you are able to do so.
