How to Make Onion Eggs


  1. Heat butter or oil in skillet or baking dish. Add onions. Cook over medium
    heat, stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes or until onions begin to turn
    golden. Add water, salt, pepper, nutmeg. Cover and simmer over very low heat
    until onions are extremely soft and mushy, at least 10 minutes. Stir
    occasionally. Add a little more water, 1 T. at time if needed. Make 2 little
    wells in onions and break one egg into each. Cover and cook until eggs are
    set. Serve at once with French bread.
