Deep fried eggs are such a wonderful thing that I would like to show you. The baked eggs get a crispy coating with flour, egg and breadcrumbs and are a feast for the eyes!
You can serve the crispy eggs with a salad or in a soup as a shining center. For guests I like to prepare the egg dish with mashed potatoes and serve an impressive, vegetarian and warm starter.
The following article shows you variations of the breading and ideas for great combinations. The step-by-step instructions will help you cook yourself. I wish you good luck!
1. Deep fried Egg, the ingredients
For the egg frying you need:
- Fresh farmer chicken eggs or Quail Eggs
- One to two raw eggs for breading
- Vegetable fat for deep frying
We want to bring the eggs to the plate in top quality and warm. Therefore we prepare the breaded eggs shortly before serving.
2. Variations of the breading
You can bread the eggs flexibly with different ingredients. You always need the flour or starch and the raw egg so that the breadcrumbs stick well to the soft boiled egg.
The table also gives you an idea of suitable dishes…
