Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet and have ready a cup or two of hot water.
  2. Whisk in the flour and cook until brown, stirring constantly--be careful not to burn the flour.
  3. Add a small amount of hot water to the pan, whisking well, to create a sauce-like consistency, adding and whisking as needed.
  4. Whisk together the vinegar and the sugar, then add as much or as little to the sauce as you like (taste and adjust if necessary).
  5. Cook eggs however you like them (pan fried, hard boiled, etc) and serve with the sauce and some potatoes, if desired.
