“My younger brothers and I were hungry and they were tired of regular eggs and bacon. (How they got tired of bacon is beyond me.) I asked my neighbor if there was anything that she would recommend, and she handed me a few mini limes. She said "Use these, and they will ask for more." Boy was she right! This is the recipe for one egg, but it is super easy to double or triple.”
1 egg

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub your butter around your pan and put the pan on medium heat, allow the pan to heat up .
  2. Cut the mini lime into fourths and set aside. if you would like scrambled eggs, whisk your egg in a bowl with 1/4 cup of milk and the juice if 2 , mini lime slices.
  3. When the pan reaches desired temperature, squeeze a slice of lime to flavor the bottom of the pan for the egg. Put the egg in and squeeze another slice on top of the egg. if you are making the scrambled variation, skip adding more lime. Sprinkle the ground cayenne pepper onto the egg and cook the egg.
  4. If you are making over easy eggs, watch the egg carefully so that the yolk doesn't cook to much. For scrambled, make sure all ingredients are spread throughout the egg so that you don't end up with some areas being under seasoned, or a pocket of seasonings.
  5. When the egg is done, serve and enjoy! With my family, its a hit. I hope you and your family likes it too.
