If done correctly, a decent poached egg will yield a beautiful yolk of bright yellow that just oozes out. A fried egg, while crispy, will have a less runny yolk as it cooks for a little longer. If only there was a combination of the two egg styles.
Chef Byron Talbott created a video that demonstrates his brilliant method for creating what he calls “crispy eggs.”
To quickly summarize, all you have to do is poach a couple of eggs. Once cooked, covered the eggs in egg wash and cover in bread crumbs. Throw a second layer of wash and crumbs onto the eggs. After they’re nice and coated, the eggs are deep fried for a few minutes until golden brown.
