Nigerian Breakfast Recipe

Here is how to fry eggs, one of the top breakfast recipes in Nigeria. I like this recipe because it serves as an easy to make morning food, takes about 10 minutes to prepare; sounds easy right? I made this (the image below) for myself this morning, it was a quick fix. I eat this kind of food when I am in a hurry to meet up with an appointment.
