March 29, 2013

SERVES 1

INGREDIENTS2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 eggs, cracked into 2 small cups
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chopped chives, for serving

INSTRUCTIONS1. Melt butter in an 8" non-stick skillet over medium heat until foamy. Slide eggs into the pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, spooning butter over top of eggs, until the whites are just set, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer eggs to a plate.

2. Continue to cook butter until just beginning to brown, about 2 more minutes. Add lemon juice to the pan, swirling to combine. Drizzle lemon-butter mixture over eggs. Season with salt and pepper, and top with chives. Serve with toast, if you like. Get the recipe >>
