Oil on egg

I have seen pics of pan frying in oil on the egg.
How is this done? Lid closed? Seems that this would be a potential hazard.

    It is a hazard - approach with extreme caution. I've done it once....clearly lacking the mad skills needed! ;)

    It is. I won't say who, but a famous tool maker from San Antonio ( :woohoo: ) had a huge problem one time.
    You had better be real eggsperienced. You going to Springfield?

    Be Strongly Cautioned...

    Maybe you need to be admitted to Dix Hill Cultinary School before attempting...

  • My opinion oil and eggs should not mix for deep frying! JD

    I fry/cook shrimp in oil about once a week in a wok. ATTENDED and with very little oil in the wok. This only takes a few minutes however.

    Deep frying with the lid closed sounds like a potential bomb to me however.

    as others have warned that's a bad idea and in that same vein of thinking there a nice older bearded bib-overall-wearing gent from Indiana (Old Dave) who doesn't post here anymore darn near burnt his home down when the grease from a lot of bacon he was egging caught on fire after nearly exploding. Remember the best safety device is between your ears!

    I do snapper in a deep cast iron dutch oven maybe 1 1/2" of oil. I keep the lid close by and have a Co2 fire extinguisher handy. It isn't the safest way to fry but neither is oil on a range.

    Better than the dry chemical ones. They taste really bad.

    I don't think I can. Other people at work already have that time off.

    I think I'll take your advice and not try the oil thing. Your advice has probably save much facial hair.
