Clean the pan with some kitchen paper, then heat up again adding a piece of butter. Once the butter has melted, place the round greased cutters into the pan & crack 1 egg into each ring. Pour a small shot of water around and then fry the eggs with the lid closed for about 2 minutes.

  1. An einer Stelle runzelt sich meine Stirn wie frisch gebratener Bacon: Nach dem Baconbraten die Pfanne auswischen und dann wieder mit Butter fetten? Warum nicht einfach das tolle Baconfett verwenden? Ist vielleicht dann nicht so ein klinisch sauberes Ei-Patty, weil Baconröstpartikel drankommen, aber dafür kommt man ohne extra Butter aus und das Ei kriegt lecker Baconflavour! Und etwas Küchenkrepp spart man auch noch #lesswaste 😀
