  • 1 thick cut onion ring
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp unsalted butter
  • salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste


  • If you are using a leftover onion ring, place it onto a baking sheet into a preheated 350 degree oven for about 7 minutes to re-crisp the onion ring.
  • When the onion ring is nice and crispy, remove it from the oven, and set it aside.
  • How to make a fried egg inside of an onion ring
  • Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add the oil, and the butter, and give that a nice swirl. Once the oil and butter are heated through, add the onion ring to the center of the skillet.
  • Crack the egg, and carefully pour the egg inside of the onion ring.
  • Cook the egg for about four minutes, then cover, and remove from the heat. Cook an additional 2 minutes or so, until the egg white has stiffened. Uncover and season with salt and pepper.
  • Slide the egg onto your serving plate, and slice into it.

  • The end result was nothing short of amazing. In fact, as I sliced through the first bite, I kind of giggled about how awesome this thing was. It has the great texture from the crunch of the exterior of the onion ring, a sweetness from the onion, and the perfect dressing from the yolk. I impressed myself to say the least.
