For the breakfast, the most common question is, “How do you want your eggs?”.  Most people want eggs for their breakfast. Then try these perfect Over Hard Eggs. They have a completely cooked yolk, similar to a hard-boiled egg. Over Hard, Eggs are not sophisticated as sunny side up with the beautiful, bright yellow yolk. These over-hard eggs are just as tasty. They are great for those who are not a fan of the bright yellow yolk spilling over the plate, especially kids and are perfect for fried egg sandwiches.


The trick to make over hard eggs is to go low and slow. This is less of an issue with over-hard eggs than other ways to cook them because you don’t have to worry about overcooking the yolk. It is always better to air on the lower side of the heat.  The steps to prepare over hard eggs are:

  1. HEAT THE BUTTER – Heat ½ tablespoon butter over medium-low heat. 
  2. ADD THE EGGS – Pop 1 or 2 into the pan, then sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper. 
  3. COOK – Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the whites are firm but the yolk is still fluid. 
  4. FLIP – Flip and cook for about 2 more minutes. About 1 minute in, mild press the yolk with a spatula to make sure it’s broken. 
  5. BUTTER IS BEST – Butter has the best flavor hands down; it gives an ultra-savory, the almost crazy flavor that’s tempting. 
  6. OLIVE OIL – Olive oil works too, but it can lend a somewhat unpleasant finish to the flavor. 
  7. NEUTRAL OIL – If you prefer using oil, organic canola oil or vegetable oil does not convey any flavor.  This option is also dairy-free.
