1. Make the perfect sunny side up
A sunny side up is one of the most popular egg recipes. However, when you cook it, there might be a small part near the yolk that stays uncooked. So, to get that right, all you have to do is add some butter over it and sprinkle some water on the pan. The heat from the water will quickly cook it properly!
2. Master making poached eggs
We all love watching runny yolk on top of our dishes. But when we try to make poached eggs, they might not turn out the way we want them to. So, how to do that? Add some 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
Scrambled egg is an easy recipe but challenging to master. So, when you are making it, check the pan’s temperature before adding the eggs. Splash some water in, and if it evaporates, the temperature is appropriate. Stir it quickly to make a good plate of scrambled eggs.
4. Get silky mashed potatoes
Mashed potatoes make a wonderful side dish. We love that silky texture of it with subtle flavours of garlic and salt. However, getting that consistency is not easy. So, if you also go through the same, simply add an egg yolk and mix it properly!
