Popcorn Dipped in Egg is the New Black

Seriously. You have GOT to try this. Pop some popcorn, fry some eggs and dip in.

Popcorn Dipped in Egg: Seriously. You have GOT to try this. Pop some popcorn, fry some eggs and dip in.

This isn’t a recipe. It’s an idea. A simple idea. A delicious idea. A genius idea. If we do say so ourselves. To find out how we came up with the brilliance of dipping popcorn in egg yolks, check out this Sriracha Bacon Popcorn recipe. It’s all about the clichés, baby.

Regardless of how it came about, you have to try it. Pop some popcorn (on the stove, in the microwave, or on the campfire – smokey popcorn dipped in eggs for a camping breakfast? OMG, yes!) and fry up some eggs. Dip in.

Once you’re in love with it (and we know you will be) pop some popcorn on a Sunday morning before you head out for brunch. Open up the bag at the table and let your friends give it a try. Popcorn dipped in egg is so going to be the new black!

Why it works: The yolk is thick and fatty enough that it doesn’t make the popcorn soggy and yet the puckered pattern of the popcorn puff really grabs the yolk. As far as flavor goes, you know it’s good; popcorn has that starchy carby feel to it and we all know that carbs and yolks are besties.

FYI, the streak of red on the eggs is Sriracha. It was great on there. But go with salsa or ketchup or keep your eggs plain. This popcorn-in-yolk thing is good no matter how you do it.
