Since going gluten free, I don’t do breakfast cereal anymore. (Or at least not very often.) It’s not that there aren’t gluten free breakfast cereals it’s just that I no longer prefer them. So, typically we make waffles, eggs or smoothies for breakfast. We eat eggs frequently and so I like to find new ways of doing my eggs. They can get really boring.
We discovered Smoked Gouda at our daughter’s wedding. It was a favorite cheese on the cheese platter. Love this cheese and it’s smokey flavor! So, I wanted to use it more and had to find a way!
Smoked Gouda. . . a twist on breakfast
So, I fried my egg and I either use some oil (olive oil or coconut oil) or butter in the pan to keep it from sticking. I love butter! I know it’s not the healthiest option but. . .
Salt and pepper and for a little extra flavor I sprinkle some basil on the frying egg.
I like my eggs over hard: broken, not runny yoke. I do my husband’s over easy: yoke is runny but whites are cooked.
While the other side is cooking I place slices of the Smoked Gouda on top to melt.
Smoked Gouda Fried Eggs
- 1 Egg
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Sprinkle Basil
- 1 or 2 slices of Smoked Gouda Cheese
- Olive oil coconut oil or butter melted/heated in pan to keep from sticking
- Put oil or butter in pan and heat up. I cook on a medium heat. Salt, pepper and sprinkle basil. If you don't like a runny egg, break the yolk now with the edge of your spatula. When bottom of egg is fully cooked, flip egg over to cook other side. If you like a runny egg yolk be careful to not break it and flip gently.
- Place cheese slices on top of the cooked side of the egg. When the cheese is melted it is usually done, if it isn't done to your liking cook a little longer.
