Fried Soft Boiled Egg

No, it is not a hushpuppi or even a mini corndog.....

It is an egg!

2 eggs
1 tablespoons flour
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
 vegetable oil for frying

Bring a pan of water to a boil and gently submerge the eggs into the water. Boil for 6-7 minutes and then remove and place in a bowl of ice water. Let the eggs completely cool in the ice water which should take about 10 or 15 minutes.

When cooled, peel the eggs gently.

Heat vegetable oil in a small saucepan.

While that heats, place the flour, the beaten egg and the breadcrumb in 3 separate bowls. Dredge each soft-boiled egg in the flour, then coat with the egg and then finally with the breadcrumbs. Then re-dredge the egg in the yolk and a second time into the breadcrumbs for a nice thick coating.

Drop a bit of breadcrumbs into the oil and if it sizzles quickly, the oil is ready. Using a small stainless steel wire strainer, gently place one egg at a time in the hot oil. Gently turn the egg with the strainer to brown on all sides. This should only take no more than 30 seconds. Remove the egg to a paper towel and continue with the other egg. Cut in half, season with salt and pepper, and eat with pita. Serve with arugula and Gouda cheese on the side.
