It’s Time to Go Sunny Side Up for Your Summer!

The summer season is officially here. It’s the perfect time to enjoy everything warm and sunny—including your breakfast! There’s something inherently bright and cheerful about a perfectly cooked sunny side up egg. Its golden yolk shines brightly like the summer sun. This simple yet delightful dish is a great breakfast staple, but it may take some practice to prepare sunny side eggs just right. In addition, you may want to get a little creative with your seasonings and sides for the perfect complementary flavors.

The Perfect Sunny Side Up Egg
Creating the ideal sunny side up egg is an art form. The goal is a white that has just the right amount of tenderness with a vibrant, runny yolk in the middle. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:

– 2 large Chino Valley Ranchers organic eggs
– 1 tablespoon of butter or a splash of olive oil
– Salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat Your Pan: Place a non-stick skillet over low to medium heat and let it warm up for a minute or two.
2. Add Butter or Oil: Melt the butter or heat the oil in the skillet, ensuring it coats the entire cooking surface.
3. Crack the Eggs: Gently crack the eggs into a small bowl, making sure not to break the yolks. Carefully slide the eggs into the skillet. Skilled chefs may opt to crack the eggs directly into the pan.
4. Cook Slowly: Allow the eggs to cook undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes. The whites should set while the yolks remain bright and runny. If you prefer a slightly firmer yolk, cover the skillet for the last minute of cooking.
5. Season and Serve: Sprinkle with salt, pepper and any other seasonings of your choosing. Then serve your sunny side up egg immediately for the best freshness and flavor.

Tip: For an extra eye-catching presentation, try using a Comet Egg from Chino Valley Ranchers. These delicious and nutritious eggs are renowned for their vibrant orange yolks—perfect for a sunny summer breakfast presentation!

Perfect Pairings for Your Sunny Side Up Eggs
While a sunny side up egg is delicious on its own, pairing it with complementary dishes can elevate your breakfast to a whole new level.

Avocado Toast
A slice of whole-grain toast topped with creamy avocado and a sunny side up egg is a match made in breakfast heaven. The richness of the avocado balances the bright, runny yolk perfectly.

Sautéed Veggies
Lightly sautéed summer vegetables like zucchini, onions, cherry tomatoes or bell peppers make a vibrant and nutritious side. The combination of their sweetness with the savory egg is simply delightful.

Crisp Bacon or Sausage
For those who enjoy a hearty breakfast, crispy bacon or sausage links complement the egg’s richness. Their salty, smoky flavors are a classic pairing with sunny side up eggs.

Fresh Fruit
Fresh fruit like berries, melons or citrus will add a burst of color and sweetness to your plate. The bright flavors and juiciness of the fruit contrast wonderfully a sunny side up Chino Valley Ranchers egg.
