Do you want to make your own tapsilog? Well, here are the ingredients and the procedure for a cheap and satisfying tapsilog.

Breakfast, despite dubbed as the most important meal of the day, is the most ignored. I am one of those people who are guilty of skipping this morning enhancer, probably because of the things I need to do in the morning.

Tapa, Singangag, at itlog or popularly known as TapSiLog, is a sumptuous dish that should be prepared during breakfast. However, because of its taste, it’s available 24/7. Way back my college days, I and my friends love to dine in our favorite place to order this dish.

Whenever I have time, in the mood and there is available beef in the refrigerator, I always make my own tapsilog. It’s more satisfying, more delicious, and of course, you can refill your plate as many times as you can.

How to Make the Perfect Sunny-Side Up Egg?

In order to make a perfect sunny-side-up egg, your first option is to use a non-stick pan. Just in case you don’t have one, make sure the pan and oil are quite hot using a high fire. Then dip your ladle (siyanse) for about 5 seconds so it won’t stick to the egg when you try to get it.

Turn the heat in low fire and carefully put the egg in the oil. Wait until the egg white is done. You can also scoop some hot oil and drizzle it on top of the egg. Turn off the heat and then cover the pan for about 10 seconds. Remove using the hot ladle and you are done.

If you don’t like oil on your egg, you can poach it.
