I like to try my hand in the kitchen once in awhile. Made my first apple crisp yesterday, and it came out pretty heavenly if I may say so! For that, I only modified someone else's recipe...

However, a few weeks ago I got up way too late in the morning and didn't have time to make a very good breakfast. I thought of making a couple fried eggs, but that's hardly something to be enthusiastic about and I needed energy for work. So I decided to do something a little different. Below is what I ended up with, and I was surprised by how good my experiment turned out!

Ingredients: butter (optional), eggs, lime, ground ginger, plain uncooked oatmeal.

1) Grease a pan or skillet with butter.
2) Crack eggs into heated pan or skillet (I just made two).
3) Cut a lime in quarters.
4) As the eggs are beginning to fry, sprinkle some plain oatmeal over top.
5) Squeeze 1 quarter slice of lime over the eggs. (1 quarter for two eggs).
6) Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger over eggs.
7) When fried on bottom, flip eggs over and repeat steps five and six.
8) Remove from heat, put on a plate, and enjoy!

Note: For some reason, it has a strange smell while frying, so don't make these eggs if you or your family have sensitive noses! :) I also found it to be just as good without adding the oatmeal, so you can leave that out if you like.

If you squeezed an orange on that stuff you would have your OJ without having to drink it. Maybe a grapefruit.

@sweetmorningdew78 I'm sure a lemon would taste good, too. My local market simply had a good deal on limes, so I had some on hand. They work good for giving your home a fresh smell, too!

@blue_ladybug If you like "sweet and sour" food, you will probably like this. Think of lemon chicken.

@tourist The only oranges that I like are juice oranges that actually taste like orange juice. Otherwise, forget that idea! :) Grapefruit might work, but I've never heard of someone cooking with grapefruit juice really... I don't think it would be as good.

Well, yes, fried eggs definitely taste different than chicken! :D However, there's still that savory taste that doesn't go too badly with something a little citrus-y. I think the ginger helps to balance out the flavor some.

The oatmeal really does little at all, so you can ignore it if you want. I just included it because that's how I did it the first time. But the next time I made it, I didn't bother.

I tried it already yay not bad :) and for me the smell is good actually the combination of lemon and ginger smell but I know not all people love the smell of ginger :D and I conclude that lime fits better in this recipe the smell and taste would be more pleasant.


I like it ❤


Here it is ❤
