“Rudy loves these eggs basted hard. They are a cross between poached and fried. You can cook them to your preference; I like basted soft myself, served with toast. You need a fry pan with a lid, glass is best, so you can watch for doneness.”

Directions

  1. Heat butter until melted; add eggs.
  2. Fry until white is starting to set.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add water and cover immediately; some people add less water but I like a little more. The steam will cook the top of eggs; it takes just a minute or so, depending on how well done you like your eggs. Hard will be just like hard boiled eggs, that yellow color.
  5. I serve these with toast and fried potatoes, just like over easy eggs.
