E Ever heard of dip eggs? I grew up with Sandra Drumon
Cull and she mentionedher dad used to
make them. Even though I'd never heard the phrase, I couldimagine they featured a soft yolk suitable for toast
dipping. What she described hit the mark. So I've been asking
around and researching and no one from around here seems to have used this
charming phrase. I found a woman from Philly who called them dippy eggs. So just thinking about that cheerful bright yellow and
crispy toast points makes you want some, right? Here's how Sandra's family makes a dip egg.
Put a small amount of oil in the skillet and heat it
up. Crack the egg into the skillet and cook on medium heat. Using the
spatula splash the grease on the top of the egg and yolk until the white of
the egg is done but the yolk is still soft. Then it is ready for you to dip
your bread in the yolk and enjoy!
My bad egg The reason the dip eggs came up is that I had a
double-egg incident I was sharing with Sandra. Another friend convinced me
that Eggland's Best Eggs really are superior, and worth the extra cost. I've been
enjoying them and decided to venture into brown eggs as well. For my lunch,
I'd made two boiled brown eggs. Or so I thought. I was sitting in the car when I cracked it open and
yellow goo went down my arm. I quickly moved my hand outside the door and
began a parking lot cleanup. After that tedious process, I then
noticed the bulk of the yolk had gotten all over my pant leg and on the car seat. I should learn from that, right? For some reason I was
sure the second egg was okay, and moved it into the side pocket of a
purse I like. Guess what. I had a second gooey mess to clean up.
