Here are 5 tips for making different egg recipes
1. Do the perfect sunny side up
Sunny side up is one of the most popular egg recipes. However, when you cook it, there may be a small portion near the yolk that remains uncooked. So to do it right, all you need to do is add butter to it and sprinkle water over the pan. The heat of the water will quickly cook it properly!
2. Master making poached eggs
We all love watching the yolk run down our dishes. But when we try to make poached eggs, they may not turn out the way we want. So how? Add a little lemon or vinegar to the boiling pot when you dip your egg in water. This will help you form an amazing runny yolk in the poached egg.
3. Make Creamy Scrambled Eggs
The scrambled egg is an easy recipe but difficult to master. So when you prepare it, check the temperature of the pan before adding the eggs. Pour some water into it, and if it evaporates, the temperature is appropriate. Stir quickly to make a nice plate of scrambled eggs.
4. Get silky mashed potatoes
Mashed potatoes make a wonderful side dish. We love its silky texture with subtle flavors of garlic and salt. However, achieving this consistency is not easy. So if you are going through the same thing, just add an egg yolk and mix it properly!
