Lemon-Butter Eggs

Lemon-Butter Eggs

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs per person
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Fry (or poach) the eggs and place them on a warm platter or an electric warming tray set at low heat. Melt the butter in a skillet. When it starts to brown, slowly add the lemon juice, keeping well back in case it spatters. Swizzle the mixture around in the pan for a few moments.

Place the eggs on toast or English muffin halves. Season the lemon-butter sauce to taste with salt and pepper, and pour the sauce over the eggs. Garnish with parsley or chopped chives. Serves immediately.
