Chili Oil Eggs

Sharing is caring!

This easy recipe for chili oil eggs can be served over rice for a delicious breakfast or lunch. Serve the eggs over rice with a dash of furikake (Japanese nori seasoning) for a filling and hearty meal.

This style of cooking eggs was popularized on TikTok with the viral pesto eggs recipe. Essentially, instead of using oil or butter to fry your eggs, you use a sauce to cook them - resulting in a tastier egg!
