Caramelized Eggs Cooked in Heavy Cream

These eggs are cooked in a nontraditional way, involving a combination of steaming and frying. When you cook your eggs in cream, the liquid quickly boils off, leaving you with butter fat to fry the egg in and caramelized butter solids that add a new flavor dimension to the eggs. It’s a great way to use left over heavy cream!
