How do you like your eggs?
The GAPS Introduction Diet introduces soft boiled eggs first in stage two followed by scrambled or fried in stage 3.
Relatively simple this recipe can be adjusted to suit the individual in terms of sunny side up and sunny side down, however the important thing to remember is to cook the whites whilst maintaining a runny yolk.
You may use a stainless steel or cast ion fry pan. I prefer to use a cast ion pan to cook my eggs.
This recipe is appropriate for the Introduction Diet from stage 3 onward.
Add the ghee to the fry pan and set on medium heat. Do not allow the ghee to burn
I recommend cracking the egg into a small bowl first, and then pouring that gently into the pan. Make sure to pour slowly, letting the whites find their placement for 1 or 2 seconds before letting the yolk slip into the middle of the pan. Of course, you’re welcome to just crack and pour the egg directly into the pan.
Cook the egg until the whites are cooked and the egg yolk is still runny. That is an official GAPS egg. We want the yolks to be runny to maximise the nutrition from the egg. You can flip the egg if you wish to have a sunny side down, however be careful not to over cook the yolk. Sunny side up will allow you to monitor the cooking of the yolk much better.
