FH and I love eggs for breakfast and one of FH’s favorite dishes are these deep-fried eggs. I’ve made bacon-breaded eggs before and thought I would treat him again and made them for breakfast. They’re soft boiled eggs covered in a crispy bacon breadcrumb coating. Yummy.

These deep-fried eggs are actually very easy to make, but you do need a little patience to peel the eggs before you bread them. But, once you’ve done that, it’s very quick to make.

There’s something very fun about dressing up a plain boiled egg. I’ve also made breakfast muffins with whole eggs baked inside, which is another delicious and creative way to enjoy eggs. So, if you prefer something baked instead of fried you should give that recipe a try.

How to Soft Boil Eggs

Eggs that are soft-boiled are cooked long enough to set the white but they have a warm, runny yolk. To make deep-fried eggs you want to start with ones that are soft boiled because they will continue to cook while you fry them. There are a couple of ways to soft boil eggs:

  • Stove: Bring a pan of water to a boil. You will need enough water to fully cover the eggs once you place the in the water. Once boiling, lower the heat to maintain a simmer and place the eggs (up to four at a time works well) and cook the eggs for three to four minutes.
  • Instant Pot: My favorite way to cook eggs is in my Instant Pot – it works every time and the eggs are easier to peel. I wrote a post about how to cook eggs in an Instant Pot so be sure to check it out if you want to learn more.

Once they’re cooked, transfer them to a bowl with water and ice to cool them. This will take about 10 to 15 minutes.

To peel, I find there’s always one side of the egg that peels easier so I gently tap the egg to break the shell and start with that side first. For the harder-to-remove part of the shell, use a spoon to loosen the shell from the white.

How to Bread Eggs for Deep Frying

I use a double-breaded method to make deep-fried eggs. Once the eggs are cooled and peeled all you have to do is bread and fry them.

  • Heat oil in a pan. While it’s heating you can bread the eggs.
  • Place flour, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs in three separate bowls. Chopped precooked bacon and add it to the breadcrumbs.
  • Dredge the eggs in the beaten egg, followed by the flour. Coat them in the bacon breadcrumbs. I find it’s easier to scoop and pour some of the breadcrumbs over the egg.
  • Repeat the process so the eggs are double-breaded.

Once the eggs are breaded carefully place them, one at a time, in the hot oil. Fry the eggs for about 30 seconds, turning them once so they’re brown and crispy on all sides. Drain them on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
