Baghdad Eggs

Baghdad Eggs

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves of garlic - smashed
  • 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
  • sprinkle of crushed cumin - to taste
  • 1 slice of toast
  • chopped mint or basil - for garnish
This is sort of a simplified, fast version of Baghdad Eggs. In other versions, you saute a couple tablespoons of onions (with the garlic) until they're just browned. This version skips the onion and takes about 1/2 of the time. If you're not used to using cumin, add it more liberally than you might salt or pepper. It adds a real distinct smokey flavor. I used a nice sourdough for my toast. You might consider using a pita for more of a Middle Eastern flare. For my garnish, I used a combination chopped basil and chopped parsley.

How To Make Baghdad Eggs

In a medium pan, melt the butter over low heat with the garlic. Add sprinkle of cumin. When butter is melted and the garlic has softened, remove the garlic cloves and add the eggs. (Eggs can be scrambled or kept intact according to your liking). Add another sprinkling of cumin if desired on top of the eggs. Place lid on pan and slow cook the eggs to your liking.

Dish out over dry toast. MMMMMMM!

My husband is from Morocco and this is how they make their eggs, but scrambled. SO good! The cumin makes all the difference!

Well it says to smash the garlic and advises you can choose between scrambling the eggs or not; what other guidance do you need?! :)

The recipe doesn't make sense - two whole cloves of garlic cut up or not? And are the eggs whole of mixed? And there hasn't been an explanation within two years!

Some recipes are not clear. By 'add the eggs' to the pan, do you mean scramble the eggs, or fry without disturbing the yoke?
