Insider Info

Fresh eggs are best for scrambling, frying or poaching.

To SCRAMBLE an egg, beat egg and 2 tablespoons reduced fat milk until blended. SPRAY a small skillet or add 1 teaspoon butter or vegetable oil. HEAT skillet on medium heat. ADD egg mixture. As mixture begins to cook, gently DRAW an inverted pancake turner completely across bottom and sides of skillet, forming large curds. Continue COOKING until eggs are thickened and there is no visible liquid. DO NOT stir constantly.

To FRY an egg, spray small skillet with cooking spray OR add 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil. HEAT skillet on medium-high heat. SLIP egg into pan and immediately reduce heat to low. COOK slowly until white is completely set and yolk begins to thicken. BASTE egg with butter OR turn over to cook both sides.

To POACH an egg, bring 2 to 3-inches of water to boiling in deep skillet or omelet pan. BREAK cold egg into a custard cup. SLIP egg into water. COOK until whites are completely set and yolk begins to thicken but is not hard, about 3 to 5 minutes. REMOVE carefully with a slotted spoon.

You may substitute mayonnaise for the butter.

A fried OR poached egg may be prepared in place of the scrambled egg.

Lean ham, Canadian bacon or crisply cooked regular bacon may be used in place of the prosciutto.

Garnish plate with green grapes.
