This recipe proves that with just a little extra effort, something as simple as a fried egg can be a true event. In the case of these herb-showered eggs, it’s panko that coats the bottom to create a crisp crust. Basically, you’ll never want to eat fried eggs without breadcrumbs ever again! The opportunities are endless for serving these elegant eggs. Try alongside sautéed fresh chorizo or with wilted greens and a yogurt schmear. And of course, you can double down on the bread factor by sliding these into a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich—it wouldn’t be gilding the lily at all.Headnote by Lindsay Maitland Hunt
