How do you like your eggs?

How do you like your eggs? Sunny side up? Over hard? Over easy? Scrambled? Poached?

I like my yolks runny, so my eggs must be over easy or poached. On occasion, I (may) settle for scrambled. Runny eggs are awesome because you can smear the yolk all over the rest of your meal. It’s the best part. (Have I grossed any of you “over hard” people out yet?)

It seems like, when it comes to eggs, people know what they want. In my restaurant days, I dreaded working the breakfast/brunch shift. And it was because of the damn eggs! People sent eggs back like it’s their right – I’m guilty too. Just a few weeks ago I ordered poached eggs on toast and those eggs came out cooked through… so back they went.

All that to say, this quick egg meal may not be for everyone. But, for those of you who like runny yolks, you’re going to love this one. It is the best open egg sandwich ever! I have been eating it on repeat for the past two weeks. It has made multiple breakfast and lunch appearances, and even one dinner. I adjust the amount of turkey and/or eggs based on how hungry I am. Served with the side of greens and fruit, this meal is so satisfying and well balanced. Really, this is how to eat an egg…
