Basted eggs are like steamed fried eggs. You cook them by cracking them into the pan as if you’re going to fry them, but instead, you add some water, cover the pan, and you end up with perfectly runny and scrumptious eggs.
Always add some salt when making baked goods. You’re not adding much, but the little half teaspoon drastically enhances the flavors of other ingredients and spices. You can use any kind of salt — just make sure you don’t forget to add it.
