The Best Frying Pan & Poached Egg Recipe

I loved my 8″ Ozeri frying pan so much (you can see my review HERE), that I just had to try the Ozeri 12″ frying pan

I’m not going to tell you that this meal is completely healthy, but it was delicious!  I don’t normally cook breakfast for my family, but since we’ve had a 4-day weekend for the New Year, I decided that I would cook and try out my new pan at the same time.

I’m loving  the Jimmy Dean® Bacon Lovers Sausage that I got for free from BzzAgent, so I decided that I would make some for our breakfast.  I cut it into rounds and put it in the frying pan with a smidgen of olive oil.  In hindsight, I really didn’t need to add the oil.




I cooked it on medium heat for about 3 minutes before turning it.  The sausage didn’t stick to the pan at all.

After cooking the sausage, I scrambled my son’s eggs in the grease left over in the frying pan.  I’ve done this before and it make the eggs taste amazing.  The eggs slide all over the frying pan and not a single piece of egg stuck to the frying pan.

Once all that stuff was cooked, it was time to cook the poached eggs.  I had been wanting to get an poaching pan, but saw some other ways to poach eggs without having to but a pan that I wouldn’t use very often.

All you need to poach eggs is:

  1. plastic wrap – about a 12 inch by 12 inch sheet
  2. olive oil – about a teaspoon
  3. an egg
  4. string
  5. a sauce pan with boiling water

It’s that easy.

First, take you plastic wrap and put it in a small shallow bowl, such as a Pyrex custard cup.  Put the olive oil in the plastic wrap and crack your egg into it.  Gather all the edges of the plastic wrap together, making sure that there are no places for your egg to escape.  Tie the string around the plastic wrap to seal the egg inside.  I made 4 of them.

Start boiling your water.  Once it’s boiling, turn it down to medium heat and drop your egg pouches in.  You’re going to want to cook them for 3 to 4 minutes.  I hate my whites runny, so I prefer mine to cook a tad bit longer.

Once your eggs are cooked to your liking, use the exposed plastic wrap to pick them up.  Cut the bag open and plop your egg onto your plate or toast.

You’ve just saved yourself $20 or more on a pan that you’re not going to use that much.  Saving space in your  cabinet for other necessary pans like the 12″ Ozeri frying pan made with an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free.  

It’s made from scratch-resistant 100% ceramic coating that is super easy to clean and it made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.  It has a comfortable heat-resistant silicon coated handle and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.

I highly recommend all of the Green Earth Frying Pans by Ozeri.  My goal is to replace all of my frying pans with all Green Earth Frying Pans.

I received this pan for free in exchange for an honest review.  This post contains affiliate links.

  1. This looks like a great frying pan for eggs! We have multiple people in our family who cook eggs at different times of the day, so an extra pan would be useful. Thanks for the review!
