Coconut Oil Fried Eggs

A few months ago I bought a jar of coconut oil from Trader Joe’s with every intention of using it. Fast forward to yesterday and you would see a still unopened jar of coconut oil in my cupboard. With inspiration from a customer, I broke the seal and put it to good use. He suggested using the oil when frying eggs. It makes sense. Coconut oil can be heated at higher temperatures than the olive oil I had been using. I was pleased with the results. The house smelled like coconuts but my eggs tasted like eggs. I am sold. What a great way to get the goodness of coconut oil into my diet while still eating fried eggs! Yes, I know, I still need to find healthier ways to use the oil but until then…

  1. I have avoided using the coconut oil in certain things, eggs would be one, for fear they would taste like coconut, thanks for doing the experiment for me.

  2. I use avocado oil for frying as it has a very high smoke point and the one I buy is organic as well as grown and produced locally so I am on a winner on all scores.
