What do you dip in your fried egg now?

Since I cannot scoop all the runny yolk up with toast, I rarely eat a fried egg anymore. What's your substitute fave, and it doesn't have to be a bread substitute...looking for delicious and creative

Bacon. Seriously. Thick cut, peppered bacon with just the right amount of chew. That or a wonderful link of sausage. They sop up that eggy goodness so right, you'd (almost) slap your pastor for another bite.

I did think of bacon and sausage, just hadn't done it. Will put thick pepper bacon on shopping list ASAP! Thanks Cleo.

I've sautéed veggies in butter and lay the egg on top. Ive added sausage to that too. YUM. Maybe a one minute muffin would work for people who like those?

Bacon and fried eggs are a match made in heaven! I prefer my fried eggs not to have a runny yolk though. oh, and tomatoes go really well with fried eggs.

A sausage patty works well for sweeping up the runny yolk. Mmmmmm, really, really well. Dang - now I want sausage and eggs.

I break the yolk, spread it around over the white and put cheese on top and cook until the yolk is done and the cheese melted.

The lack of toast was a big bother early on low carbing for me, too. Now it's bacon! Like everyone else said, perfect for dipping. And if I can't get all the yolk up with the fork, I use a spoon. Lol. Or if no one is around, my finger.

I'm a weirdo - I eat the white and leave the yolk for last (it's my fav part) and I try to leave the yolk whole and unbroken so I can break it in my mouth. I know, I'm completely insane
If I accidentally break the yolk I just lick the plate (I eat alone - I'm not scaring anyone).

Over-easy makes me miss toast, so I scramble my eggs in the bacon fat instead. Yummy.

Oh, I also forgot to mention that I like to eat it over a bed of fresh spinach and chopped up bacon as well...so kind of like a salad and the yolk is the dressing.

I love a fried egg on top of either sauteed spinach or cabbage sauteed with a little bit of bacon. The yolk drips out and gets caught in the veggies and is DELICIOUS!!

I grew up in the south and we always ate our eggs "over easy" with grits. We'd cut up the fried egg into the grits and the yolk would mix with the grits. It's my favorite breakfast ever.

When I went low carb years ago, I was using cauliflower to make mashed fauxtatoes and fauxtato salad and all sorts of substitutes and decided to try it as a substitute for grits. It is DELICIOUS to me. No wasting the yolk, stir that into the mashed cauli with some butter and salt and pepper. Mmmm mmm good!

I think low carb is all about breaking old habits and creating new ones...and this was one of the hardest for me. I'm not a fan of scrambled eggs and never cared for my over medium without toast. My husband laughs at me because I make a perfect over medium egg...and then mash it up.

I'll usually wipe up the plate with a piece of sausage or the bacon to make sure I get all that yummy goodness.
