|Cooking a healthier fried egg|
Fried eggs are usually part of the Filipino breakfast. In fact, I love eating them with other proteins like corned beef and tuna. While eggs have lots of health benefits; I can't deny that I am very conscious of their cholesterol content. Given that, I tried cooking healthier fried eggs by using simple home cooking techniques.
Here are some of the tips I'd like to share with you in cooking healthier fried eggs:
- Use olive oil in cooking healthier fried eggs. Other alternatives of a healthy cooking oil include rice bran and canola oil. Canola oil is cheaper and just as healthy.
- Cut the yolk in half before frying them. Scramble the eggs and cook them in a very hot pan. The cholesterol content of eggs resides in the yolk. Cutting it in half (and throwing away the other half) would lessen our cholesterol intake with regards to eggs. Don't worry. You won't be missing half the yolk, especially when it's scrambled. It will taste as if you're eating a whole-yolk egg.
- Add some milk in cooking healthier fried eggs. Scramble the eggs and cook them in a very hot pan just like in the above. The milk adds flavor and some more protein into your eggs.
You can also add some vegetables and spice in cooking healthier fried eggs. This calls for a different post, though. Remember me when you're cooking and having a healthier breakfast!
