Frico Eggs

Apr 15, 2020

Parmesan. Eggs. Have we got your attention yet? Frico eggs are the simplest, tastiest breakfast upgrade we have in our arsenal. Enjoy them on their own, on a breakfast sandwich, or on top of onion and potato hash and you will not be disappointed.

Servings: 2

Work Time: 5 minutes

Hang Time: N/A


1/3 cup+ of grated parmesan (or sub for any hard cheese) 2 eggs Herbs for a bit of freshness Salt and pepper to taste



  1. Heat your Small Pan over medium-high. You can skip the oil here – the cheese will provide some extra slickness as it melts.
  2. Add a handful of cheese. As the cheese begins to melt, crack an egg over it and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the egg until the whites are set and transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with some fresh herbs if you have them.
  4. Repeat and enjoy!

Quick Tip

If you’ve ever had trouble cleanly cracking an egg, here’s a pro tip. Instead of tapping it against the side of a bowl or pan, crack the shell on a flat surface, then gently pull apart the two sides with your fingers. This will keep the egg’s membrane in tact, preventing any shell from getting into your food.
