I was beginning to get tired of my toast-and-cereal breakfast routine, so I wanted to find a new, interesting, deilicious way to get breakfast ready in just a few minutes. Then this dish came to mind! Kai Grata, or literally "pan eggs" is a street-breakfast that is popular in the north and northeastern parts of Thailand.
The eggs are cooked in the pan they are served in, and topped with a variety of meats. If you prep your toppings in advance, comes morning time it'll take you just a few minutes to put this dish together, which is perfect for me cuz I definitely do not want to get up extra early to make breakfast if I can help it!
If you don't have a special pan like this, you can simply cook the eggs in a small saute pan and slide them out onto a plate to serve. (A 6-inch pan will fit 2 eggs, and an 8-inch pan will fit 3 eggs.)
