I love a good fried egg, especially with runny delicious yolk, but I was a bit hesitant to mix the eggy yolky goodness with my greens. I can officially say that I am SO glad I did. This recipe is so easy, so healthy, and so YUM!

Difficulty Level: Easy (Whats easier than easy?)

Cook Time: ~5-10 minutes

Serving Size: 1 (but easy to make for more)

What You'll Need:

  • 1 or 2 large eggs
  • 1 bowl of lettuce of your choice (I used Trader Joe’s microgreens and spicy spinach blend)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil or coconut oil per egg
  • Salad dressing of your choice (I used an Italian recipe that I’ll eventually share)
  • Salt, garlic salt & pepper to taste

Here's How:

  1. Place non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. of olive or coconut oil.
  2. Crack 1 egg into pan and let cook for 1-2 minutes. The egg white should be a little bubbly and still a little transparent before you flip the egg.
  3. Flip egg and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Egg whites should be completely white, but yolk should feel soft to the touch.
  4. Repeat with another egg, if desired.
  5. While egg is cooking, rinse lettuce of your choice, pat dry with a paper towel, and place in bowl.
  6. Place fried eggs on top of lettuce and season as desired. I used a bit of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, garlic salt, cracked pepper, and salad dressing.
  7. Use fork to cut egg so that the yolky goodness mixes with the lettuce.
  8. Dig in!

This dish is my go-to for a quick and healthy lunch! I hope you love it as much as I do. And fun fact the colors of the egg and lettuce make this meal totally Instagram-able. Share your meal with me using the hashtag #HMBgirl so I can oodle over your Fried Egg Salad. Happy healthy eating!
