How to Cook and Egg

Hey everyone!
       Welcome to our new section we are calling our "How Too".  This section will show you how to make very simple dishes or just quick tips and tricks!  The videos are quicker and more to the point of helping you learn new tips and tricks to cooking.  So our first segment is on how to cook a great over easy egg.  This can be difficult per people tent to overcook them or break the yoke to soon.  Below are going to be some tips we think you will really benefit from!

Crack the eggs over a small bowl to ensure no shells get in, if they do use the egg to pull them out.
Heat up a nonstick pan to about medium high and melt some butter.  Eggs are high in protein and will stick to pans easily.
Once heated pour the un-broken eggs in the pan and let cook. 
Let cook for several minutes and move the pan around to ensure they aren't sticking.
Flip them very carefully when you see the yoke is getting stronger.
Let cooked for another minute or so depending how runny you want then remove.
Take off and then salt and pepper.  Salt will break down the eggs so always season after.
Serve up and enjoy!

     Egg's aren't scary to make, you just have to be patient and use medium to higher heat, but not very high heat.  It does take time and practice as well and each time you try you will learn something new.  Give this a try and see how it goes.  Our video is below so be sure to check out what chef does and how he makes his over easy eggs. 


     Thank you again for joining us on our first "How Too" video and we hope you enjoyed and learned something from it!  We plan on putting more out over time so be sure to check our site out and look for those!  

Thank you all!

     We also had chef show you an entire chicken wing and how to cuts it apart.  You will notice the wing tip is still attached and this you can remove.  He wanted to do something different and keep it on for effect.  This dish is so simple and anyone can do it so check out who we did this below!

1 Cup Honey Blue Cheese and Celery for sides. Pizza makes a great pair too.

Make sure your wings are fully thawed and drained.
Separate the drumsticks from the wings if they are attached.
Mixed your four and seasonings in a zip lock bag.
Shake and mix.
Add a few wings and coat. Shaking the bag so the wings are fully covered.
Set your oven to 400 Degrees.
Place the wings on a cooking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.
Take them out and flip them over, cook for another 20 minutes.
As they are cooking mix your BBQ Sauce and Honey.
Remove the wings after the second 20 minute flip and coat them in the sauce.
Raise the oven to 500 Degrees
Place them back on the cooking sheet.

     We think you really will enjoy this meal and if you cook Bison or regular Beef feel free to use this style of how to grill it.  We think we will do a Beef Burger video still.  The burger had a great taste to it and the way Chef cooked and put it all together was amazing.  Pair this with some homemade french fries and you have a dish!  Check out the video below to see how Chef puts this all together!

     Thank you so much for checking our site out and we do hope you watched our video.  There are some great tips in the video as well as you get to see first hand how Chef makes it.  So try something new, try a Bison Burger!
