Moroccan Fried Eggs With Cumin and Salt

You'll be surprised by the delicious pairing of cumin with eggs. Of course, you have to like cumin!. Try an egg and cream cheese sandwich. Spread some bread with cream cheese, add the prepared eggs, and enjoy. CREDIT: Christine Benlafquih


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the eggs, break the yolks with a spatula, and allow the eggs to set. Occasionally lift the edges of the eggs to let the uncooked egg run underneath.
  3. This allows more egg to make contact with the pan for faster cooking.
  4. When the eggs have cooked, sprinkle with salt and cumin, and serve.

I liked this quite well. I don't use that much cumin, but this was an interesting combination. I poached my eggs and served them on toast. I can see doing this again for a light supper.

Very good, I discovered, not too long ago, that I really like the taste of cumin. I just wasn't sure that I would enjoy the flavor on eggs, which happens to be one of my favorite foods. I heated up a quarter slice of Petit Jean ham in about a tablespoon of butter (real) then cooked the eggs in the same pan after removing the ham slice, then adding the salt and cumin after the eggs were cooked. Thanks Annacia for posting this recipe
