I love the fried eggs at Waffle House. What is the flavored oil that they use and where can I get it for home?
I tried the ice cube trick and it worked great! I just wish poaching was as easy!
Must have missed it . . . what is the ice cube trick?
It's the grease bits and grime that builds up on the grill griddle that gives its the extra flavor kick.
it's called seasoning. not grease bits and grime! ;-)if a diner's griddle/grill is more than "seasoned" and actually has grime, then i'm not eatin' there. color me finicky that way!
The seasoning on the griddle/grill provides that extra "je ne sais quoi" to restaurant eggs.
It's called Whirl, it's pure trans fat but I think it's still available. Check your local restaurant supply. Popular for buffalo wings too, mixed with hot sauce.
From Google searches, it appears that Waffle House uses a low melt, butter flavored vegetable shortening.
crisco used to make shortening bars like butter sticks....yes, here 'tis: http://www.crisco.com/Products/Catego...(don't know if this is useful for your waffle house clone, but my niece uses it to make good cookies. scoff if you will.....)
Could it be a slightly browned butter flavor?
I have seen them cook and it's a yellow oil they pour in the skillet.
synthetic popcorn butter?
