Bite: 5 Delicious Fried Egg Recipes

To me adding a fried egg to just about anything always makes it taste creamier and better. It seems to be quite the trend right now - but I've always loved adding a fried egg over my morning grits, or even to my burger. While they add as a decorative touch, eggs act as an emulsifier, pulling flavors together. They also bring essential nutrients and protein to any dish. Though eggs once were given a bad rep for raising cholesterol levels, lucky us, the government’s latest dietary guidelines allow for an egg a day. One egg before it’s cooked has about 75 calories and 6.25 grams of protein, plus vitamins A and D, folic acid and calcium, and less than 1 gram of carbohydrates.

When fried for toppings, eggs are best sunny-side up and with yolks soft enough to melt like warm butter. Sometimes I wish there were an egg that was all yolk, it really is the best part of the egg and makes just about anything taste better. So lets take a look at how we can obey the government (ha!) and get that one egg a day in:
