Steam Basted Eggs

What You’ll Need

  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp water


  1. To steam baste an egg, first heat 2 teaspoons butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-low, until hot.
  2. Then, crack a pasteurized egg into a custard cup or small bowl.
  3. Now gently slide the egg into the melted butter, and cook about 30 seconds.
  4. When the edges of the egg turn white, add 1 tablespoon water to the pan.
  5. Then immediately cover, to capture the steam, and cook 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  6. Now lift the lid to check the egg for doneness. It’s ready when the white is set and the yolk begins to firm.
