Spicy Heavy Cream Eggs… Something freaking magical happens when you fry eggs in heavy cream. The sugars in the heavy cream caramelizes, similar to what happens when you brown butter and the results are sublime, especially with a bit of salsa macha or chili crisp!

Why You’ll Love Spicy Heavy Cream Eggs

The heavy cream caramelizes into the dreamiest sauce, that also fries the eggs without them sticking, much like butter would do. It is a nice change from the classic over easy eggs in my opinion. Trust me, you won’t be going back to plain boring eggs after you try this one!

Substitutions

You can use chili crisp or chili oil if you don’t have salsa macha. Also, If you don’t like spicy recipes you can leave the spice totally out! The heavy cream still makes a delicious sauce and you can top it with eggs. It will be sublime! I understand some people don’t love a runny yolk *GASPS AUDIBLY* but for you, I do have my Heavy Cream Scrambled Eggs !
