Spanish Fried Eggs - Paleo Style

These Spanish Fried Paleo Eggs make my unbelievably happy.  I've always been partial to sunny side up eggs (would you like an egg on that?  yes, please!) - but since moving away from Teflon and non-stick pans, the perfect fried egg has continued to elude me.  Until now!

It took an abundance of bacon fat and a happy accident of not paying attention to just how much I put in the pan to figure it out, but boy am I glad this happened.  The Spanish fried egg is just an egg fried in a whole lot of olive oil.  So to paleo it up?  Use bacon fat!  Easy as can be.  No stickage, just pure eggy deliciousness.

Spanish Fried Eggs - Paleo Style, Ingredients:

  • eggs
  • bacon fat

Spanish Fried Eggs - Paleo Style, Directions:

  1. On medium, heat enough bacon fat to reach about a quarter inch high in your skillet.
  2. When bacon fat is sufficiently hot (not boiling!), crack your eggs into the pan. 
  3. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to lift the eggs up a bit and make sure the bacon grease is getting underneath.  Also, spoon the hot grease over the whites of the eggs while it cooks to make them deliciously fluffy.
  4. When the yolk is cooked to your satisfaction, remove with a slotted spoon or spatula and enjoy!
