Steamed Eggs

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Lou6566

My husband makes these for me every sunday after church. I don't particularly like eggs, but I love these. They have such a different taste than your eggs you normally prepare. I love mine sprinkled with a little cheese... my favorite is sharp cheddar, or montery Jack. The time you steam them depends on how well done you like your eggs. If you don't get it right the first time, you'll know how much time to allow the second time.I like mine medium, with the whites well cooked and the yolks only partly runny. I would like to state that this recipe is not my own creation but was found online someplace.

I have steamed whole eggs for soft or hard "boiled" but this is the first in the frypan and they white cooked beautifully and I had a nice runny yolk to dip my toast into, thank you bigpts, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
