I’ve had a few requests on how I make a dunkin’ egg, so this morning I grabbed my camera and snapped step-by-step photos so you could see how I do them! I do them differently than my dad because I haven’t quite mastered his skills. (He flips the egg to get the top of it to cook, my method requires no flipping!) One day I will master his technique though. I just need a bit more coaching from him!
Step 1: Preheat skillet at medium low heat. Spray nonstick cooking spray on skillet and allow to get to temperature.
Step 2: Crack egg into pan.
If the white of the egg tries to run off, simply grab your spatula, spray it with nonstick cooking spray and scrape the white back to where it belongs.
Step 3: Allow egg whites to settle.
Step 4: Add about 1 Tbsp water.
Step 5: Cover the egg and water with a lid.
The steam ends up cooking the top of the egg perfectly…no flipping required!
Step 6: When the top of the egg looks like the yolk is to your liking, remove the lid.
I make mine “over-easy”, but I’ve also made “over-medium” style eggs like this before and it turns out great.
For “over-easy” it’s about 2 minutes, for “over-medium” it’s about 4 minutes. Just keep a watch on it because sometimes it cooks faster than you think!
Step 7: Plate and Dig in!
Once I discovered this way of making my dunkin’ eggs, it’s made mornings so much easier. When I flip my eggs I tend to overcook them or
get nervous and they break on me!
