A fried egg with a Parmesan crust

Must Try

Do you like a fried egg and are you a big cheese fan? Then you should try a fried egg with a Parmesan crust. A classic  sunny side up egg , but with a savory twist.


For 1 person:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 generous handful of grated Parmesan cheese

Grab your best non-stick frying pan. Note: this recipe will not work without smooth non-stick, because you really need it. Grate the cheese with your finest grater (a Microplane is ideal for this), it should be really fine curls.

Heat this pan over medium heat for about 2 minutes. You can test if the pan is hot enough by sprinkling a little bit of cheese in the middle, if it starts to melt right away, you’re good. Make sure you don’t set your fire too high, or it will burn.

Sprinkle the cheese in the pan in a circle, about 10-15 cm in diameter (obviously this is not close at all!). Let it bubble over medium heat for about 1 minute (if it’s too hot, lower the heat).


Break your egg into a small bowl or espresso cup. Then very carefully ‘pour’ your egg on top of the Parmesan cheese in the pan. Let it cook for about 2 minutes, then lower the heat and place a lid or a plate on the pan. This also allows the egg whites to set well on the top.

Test with a large flat spatula or palette knife whether the whole is well separated from the pan. Place the fried egg with the Parmesan crust on a plate and season with salt and pepper. Of course also delicious with bread or a fresh green salad .
