~Frambled Egg - a Cross between Scrambled & Fried~

IMG_3189What the heck is a frambled egg?  A funny typo?  Is frambled even a word?  The first time I saw it in print, I kinda did think it might be a typo, but, it got my attention and I kept on reading.  The definition revealed it is a trendy new cooking term for something many of us older foodies, like myself, have been doing for years:  making scrambled eggs without whisking the eggs first.  Yep, it's even easier than making scrambled eggs -- you don't need a cup (or a bowl) or a fork (or a whisk).  There's more. Eggs are personal.  Everyone who eats eggs likes them cooked a particular way.  That said, folks that don't have the time or patience to fuss with poached eggs fall into two camps: fried or scrambled, and frambled eggs offer the best of both those worlds. 

"Frambled" = "a cross between a fried egg and a scrambled egg".  I've always called them "lazy scrambled eggs" (no recipe required).  My kids call them "funny scrambled eggs" ('cause they kinda are).

The end result is a colorful marbled effect: perfectly-cooked egg white with streaks of perfectly-cooked yolk running through it.  If you want to add other ingredients (an herb, minced onion, bacon bits, etc.), add them when you add the salt and pepper. Depending upon how you play this game, if you add some grated cheese near the end, you can even make a frambled omelette.  

Frambled eggs -- the best of two worlds -- and easier too:

Special Equipment List:  8" nonstick skillet; spatula

They're wonderful -- slightly sweeter and considerably-lighter than typical Johnny cakes.  In a perfect world, I'd get up in the wee hours of the AM and make 'em from scratch.  Well, newsflash, it's not a perfect world, and, I can still make a great corn pancake breakfast by combining store-bought pancake mix and store-bought corn-muffin mix.  No eye rolling please -- once you stick a fork in one of these and take a taste, the outlook on the day ahead of you is going to improve. Served with pure maple syrup and country sausage -- early morning breakfast perfection with no stress and no mess.  Try my ~ In a Jiffy Corn Pancakes -- The Best of Both Worlds ~.
