Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. But I don’t typically do anything fancy. Most mornings I whip up a smoothie or make a yogurt bowl or I’ll have a warm breakfast of oatmeal.
But a few mornings ago I pulled out the skillet and made breakfast for Big Guy and myself. It’s not too difficult and you really only need a few ingredients to make frico eggs (aka crispy fried cheesy eggs).
First you grate some parmesan cheese and heat up your skillet to medium heat. Crack an egg in a small bowl to avoid shells in your breakfast. Once the skillet is hot, spray with non-stick spray and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese in the middle of the pan and spread into a thin layer. Once the cheese starts to melt, gently pour the egg on top and cover the skillet with a glass lid. Allow to cook until your desired degree of doneness. Remove the skillet from the heat and all the cheese to crisp up before removing and plating. Sprinkle with a little salt and some herbs (I had some parsley on hand but chives would be fantastic). I served ours with sliced avocado on the side.
This would also be perfect for a light lunch. Or dinner, for that matter.
Crispy and cheesy and so, so yummy.
