  • Heat a skillet to medium.  Pour the green sauce in the pan and warm it for just a minute.  Add the cream and stir.
  • Create little 'holes' where you want to place your eggs.  Gently crack them, cover the pan with the lid.
  • Cook 3-5 minutes for a runny yolk and longer for a medium or hard cooked egg. 
  • Serve over rice, toast, or even quinoa. 


You can substitute half and half, milk, or almond milk for the cream.
