Hi, I'm Betty. Welcome to Betty’s kitchen its breakfast time and I'm going to make a fried egg breakfast. I think I’ve done scrambled egg for you before and omelet and may be some other egg dishes but I don’t think I’ve ever done Friday. So over here I have one tablespoon of margarine. It’s getting hot very hot so I'm going to go ahead and then put a couple of eggs in them. You do want a hot skillet and what I'm going to is go ahead and sprinkle a little salt on there and just stand away a bit. And I'm just going too fried to the point where I can separate them pretty easily and then turn them over. I like them pretty much all the way down I made some of this a little shorter thing all the way done just to show you that they love about it.
But those well goes to fry well just a little bit. In the mean time I want to mention that were going to have a whole way toast this are actually whole grained bread I put two slices in the toaster so that’s going to make fun of it. I have gotten some of frozen bacon out of the freezer and pop that in the microwave so I’ve got three nice slices of bacon and I have made a fresh coffee so we have our cup of coffee here and then a little garlic your plate and a cup of fresh strawberries and also some fruit and season which happens to be peaches so we have this peaches and I like them very sweet so put a little slender on the top. So well begin now to our eggs that well probably need a fork. And then I’ll just put down to the center here, it doesn’t matter if the yolks break. My husband always likes the yolk broken, which going to like a bit. And get under here so that will work. Making your peaches—you don’t really need to make it to get under yolk and then flip it over. And then were just going to turn it back so it will sizzle and just take a minute or two for those who catch up. So let me arrange that plate if it’s ready you put the plate for you.
Right here are fried eggs I like to pepper them a little bit after we come up and that’s I have put a lot of pepper and then wow they are cooking that we have our toast for just a tiny bit of butter on the top as it made them better in the bottom one and one the other as well the three pieces of bacon, a couple of strawberries and the peaches and my hot coffee. So this is like a breakfast that what I'm doing.
