The Sidewalk-fried Egg

So are you excited for this? Because no one I know has ever successful fried an egg on the sidewalk. Few places are hot enough to accomplish it and even fewer people are up to the task. It’s a good thing we have 8 1/2 year olds in this world.


My brave 8 1/2 year old assistant.

And then we went back inside to wait. Come on, it isn’t *that* hot over here.

About an hour later, we returned, ready with plates and a salt shaker.

This is what we found:

Awesome. This kind of heat and we can’t even cook an egg properly. Just awesome.


PS But it *did* cook. I’m thinking this weekend I’ll try it with a cookie sheet instead of just the brick. That ought to be a lot more exciting.
