Square Eggs? What the hell!?! Okay, so they don't actually start off square, rather, they become square. Imagine yourself in the following scenario:
It's Saturday morning and you want nothing more than a bacon egg and cheese biscuit to
start the weekend off right, to minimize the effects of the scotch from the night before, but you don't want to go outside because it's so freaking cold , lets be honest, you probably shouldn't be seen in public until after you eat, bathe and probably take another nap. 30 is brutal. Assuming you won't burn your place down using the stove, learning how to fold an egg into a square makes eating those Bacon Egg and Cheese (or so lovingly referred to as BECs) so much easier.
I learned how to do this when I was working at Chick-fil-A. One Black Friday, my whole job for about 5 hours was to just make square eggs for the breakfast rush. Needless to say, I only make these for Jamie because I can't bring myself to eat them. I saw too much that day ;)
What you need:
1 small frying pan
butter or cooking spray
1 egg beaten and seasoned
What you do:
- Turn stove on medium high and add butter or cooking spray to your frying pan.
- Once the butter is melted add your egg to the pan and let it evenly coat the botton of your pan.
- Let the egg cook, without touching it, until it's firm enough to move.
- Fold the edges of the egg, like so:
You could also fold all of the edges inward and then fold in half, but you have to work pretty quickly to make sure your egg doesn't dry out.
That's all there is to it!
For the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit pictured above, I used a Pillsbury Grands Southern Style Biscuit, bacon, colby jack cheese and of course a "square egg".
