The Simple Way To Add Umami To Fried Eggs While They Cook
The perfect fried eggs start with the type of fat you cook them in. While butter imparts a salty and creamy element, soy sauce would provide an umami edge.
Its savory and tangy notes stand out when you add a few splashes or more to your melted butter before you crack an egg. The combined flavors will meld as your eggs cook.
Soy sauce isn’t the only option for added umami. Fish sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and Marmite can also up the flavor when cooked with eggs.
