The A-Okay Breakfast – Stir Fried Eggs!

Some friends took my husband and me out for dinner not long ago, to a Japanese restaurant where everyone sits around the grill and watches the chef entertain with cooking.

These chefs are wonders! They throw eggs, build train engines from onion rings, and juggle spatulas. And they can cook really fast.

I paid attention. I never plan to build a choo-choo from onion rings, or throw rice at people, but the SPEED! After tasting the food, I knew I had discovered one more way to make a breakfast I could eat.

And to make it fast.

Stir Fried Eggs

2 eggs
1/2 T. butter

You can tell from the ingredients, this will be fast, can’t you?

High Heat - Watch Carefully

Put butter in pan and turn on high.

Have spatula ready. You need one with a flat front edge.

Once butter is all melted, break two eggs into pan, still on high heat.

REady to Go!
Pan and Eggs Ready to Go!
Start Chopping
Start Chopping Eggs Immediately

Quickly pick up your flat-edged spatula or spoon and begin chopping eggs very quickly, in all directions. Scoop or scrape particles together and chop more, until all is chopped, about pea-sized or even rice-sized, and quite done.

If pan seem too hot, control temperature by lifting or tilting pan, not by regulating the temperature of the burner. You need it hot. Prevent burning by quick and thorough stir-chopping.

Stir Fried Eggs

Serve hot, with salt, pepper, soy sauce (opt.) and juice and/or coffee. Get good at this method and try it mixed with mayonnaise and fresh onion, for an egg salad sandwich. Mmm!

  1. I do the same thing except I add chopped onion,green pepper and small cubes of mozzarella while I am stirring the eggs.The grandchildren love it and it is quick and nutrious.

    1. Good Morning, SnoNanny! And a big welcome!
      Thanks for visiting and for your comment! I love hints like this.
      On a day when there is time for it, this would be a great idea!
      Check out other egg recipes I’ve posted for the last few weeks–you may find another you like, too!

  2. The eggs look fabulous! Do you raise them yourself? It’s something I like to fix often, even for a quick lunch, but like SnoNanny, I add in veggies. The mozzarella sounds really good too!

    1. Hello, Rhonda!

      Yes, we have five hennies that keep us WELL supplied. We do like eggs and they are so nutritious. I have posted many times about egg cookery, usually on Mondays, but always some outlandish thing! Check it out…
      And thanks for your kind words. 🙂

  3. Kathy, YOUR EGGS are beauities for sure. I love LOVE to gather the eggs daily. I have about 28 hens, give or take a few that have died recently. I love to get double yolkers too.

    1. Hey, Karen!
