Even though it may sound strange, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil adds an exquisite new dimension (and amazing flavor) to fried eggs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 4 teaspoons of oil to pan and swirl to coat.
  2. Place eggs in carefully and cook until the white has become solid, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the eggs with salt, pepper, and about a tablespoon of cheese for each egg.
  4. Swirl the remaining olive oil on the top of the cheese.
  5. Carefully turn eggs and cook until yolk is of desired doneness, about 1 minute.
  6. Serve immediately. (Makes 4 servings).

I used Omega Plus oil which is olive, avocado, and flaxseed oil. I used quite a bit for just one egg, and a generous sprinkling of parmesan. Easy and quite tasty!

These were fantastic! I served them on thily sliced and toasted Italian Bread and drizzled with the Olive oil. Thanks for a great recipe!
