Grilled, fried, in the microwave, in an omelette… There are infinite ways to cook an egg, and it is no doubt that this ingredient is a basic ingredient in any kitchen. Quick to cook, very versatile and perfect for breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner. Do you want to learn how to make the most of it? We will explain to you seven ways to profit from the egg in the kitchen.
Substitute healthier to the fried egg: the egg to the plate
This version is ideal to replace the fried egg. It uses very little oil, a drop is enough, even nothing if we have a good non-stick pan. We take the egg when the pan is hot, immediately, lower the fire and cover. The key to make it perfect is to put the lid. With the steam that is generated, the clear will be well done and the yolk liquid.
An alternative that I love is to make the typical dish of potatoes with a fried egg replacing the potato in strips of sweet potato in the oven and the egg to the plate. A more healthy and just as appetizing.
How to cook egg hard perfect
How many minutes are needed to cook the egg hard perfect? It depends, because for tastes colors. The first tip is to poke the egg is always when the water has begun to boil with the help of a spoon. So not it will break. Once inside, time:
–11 minutes: if you like very facts
– 9 minutes: if you like the point
– 7 minutes: if you like juicy
– 5 minutes: if you want the yolk to remain liquid
The 5 minutes is great on toast and the 9 is perfect for the salmorejo!
The trick to that is not you break the poached egg
If you’ve tried more than once to make a poached egg or poached but it has been a complete failure these tricks you will come well.
The first, and very important, is to use fresh eggs. They are firmer and have a consistency less liquid so that it is easier not to be broken. In addition, if you filter, released the most liquid of the clear and you’ll avoid the threads that are formed, leading to a more round form. The second is to put a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to the water: helps to coagulate the egg white quickly and prevents it from falling.
Once it is ready the egg and the water always remember: you don’t have to come to a boil! The perfect temperature to make poached eggs or poached is around 80ºC, that is to say, when you see the bubbles very fine in the bottom of the pot. When everything is ready, stir the water with a spoon, creating a kind of vortex and pulls the egg into the middle of this. This will perform a circular motion and it will be forming. Turn off the heat and leave it for about three minutes. ¡Voilà! Mission accomplished.
