whats not to like about egg...right?

One egg, heaps of way to have them!

One can choose to have hard boiled eggs, soft boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, poached eggs, omelette, sunny side up, fried with crispy sides... ooh many more.

Have 'em with soup, have an egg by the side, or have an egg in salad.

How do I have my eggs?

Apart from my routine weekend scrambled eggs (no milk please!!) cooked by hubby, I love having soft boiled eggs with kechap manis (sweet soy sauce) and a dash of white pepper or hard boiled eggs, again with kechap manis :P

  1. We love this recipe and have made it several times.I suspect it would work as well with olive oil substituted for the butter, which would be more heart-healthy.

    1. Hi Abigail,
      I don't actually think you have made this recipe!
      1) There is NO butter at all in this recipe
      2) We rarely/ don't use olive oil in Asian cooking
