|This is NOT an non-stick pan|
I was sick of scrubbing nasty egg frying pans (I have done it the hard way for years) so I decided to Google a better way. I have no idea where I found it, but it is pretty common knowledge out there in the internet world. I combined a couple of ideas for what I now use.
1. Heat the frying pan before adding anything (very important. I also do this with my wok).
2. Add about a tablespoon of oil and swirl around to coat the sides (be careful that it doesn't drip and cause a fire!).
3. Add the eggs before the oil gets too hot (I don't know if this changes anything, but I do it.)
As you can see in the picture, the frying pan comes out so clean! I do not use non-stick pans, so this is a big deal for me!
4. Uh, oh, there will be some egg stuck to the sides where the oil didn't get high enough...
Just sprinkle some sea salt in your pan while washing (dump out any standing water first) and it will get those pesky egg flakes right off! You can use this when scrubbing other difficult things.
What is your method of cooking eggs to avoid a mess? Do you have a pan scrubbing tip?
P.S. To my dismay I accidently ended my record of one or more blog posts per week since January. :( Boo hoo! I was out of town and completely forgot. Oh well! Time to work on beating my old record...
