OK, this is not so much a recipe as it is a technique. It's my way of getting the perfectly steamed sunnyside egg in a cast iron skillet. Yes, you can use a non-stick skillet, too. Of course, you can do soft boiled eggs, which I love, and which I finally mastered after much trial and error, but this skillet fried/steamed egg lends itself to a whole new dimension. Some of the happy things about the perfect skillet steamed egg: 1. It's a glorious egg or eggs (you can do more than one in a cast iron skillet) that are dummy proofed. Just follow my easy directions. 2. You can do any size skillet. I've done skillet steamed eggs for one or six. Just swap out my skillet size. 3. I recommend using a well-seasoned cast iron skillet or a seasoned steel cast iron. Use the latter for 8-10 eggs. 4. Eggs are naturally healthy and low calorie. Using cooking spray (canola, olive oil, coconut) keeps them from sticking, plus you don't add more big calories. 5. Set you blaze on low. Cover with a lid. And, in a few minutes (about 7-9), you have your delicious eggs. Just leave them there to steam in the low slow heat. 6. It's a great way to make eggs for a crowd. Got people coming over for the Saturday morning brunch. Then this is your answer. 7. It's communal eating at its best. Take the big skillet of steamed eggs to the table and dish out. Here's the secret technique. The steps are under each photo! Good Luck & let me know how you likeee!! xoxo ~ally
Holi is an important North Indian spring festival, also known as festival of colors. Holi is generally celebrated on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalgun, which usually falls in March or sometimes early February. The celebrations start with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free-for-all carnival of colors, where participants play, chase and color each other with dry powder and colored water, with some carrying water guns and colored water-filled balloons for their water fight. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships.
