Few dishes in Real Housewives history have achieved the legendary status of Luann de Lesseps' eggs à la Francaise. The meal first made an appearance back in Season 7 of The Real Housewives of New York City as Luann tried to cool down a very hot Sonja Morgan during the ladies' trip to Turks and Caicos (clip above). Unfortunately, the eggs à la Francaise didn't do much to usher in peace among the group, but we know that Sonja must have had the best breakfast ever.
However, the dish still had us scratching our heads about what exactly gives eggs the Francaise flair. Well, this is a day that you'll never forget, because Luann just revealed what eggs à la Francaise are and how to make them.
The RHONY mom demonstrated how to make the recipe in basically the best cooking show ever in a series of videos in her Instagram Story posted Thursday. And she did it all while clad in lingerie, a robe, and some sunglasses that are undeniably cool, not all uncool.
Luann shared that she was making the meal for friends at a pal's house. The RHONY mom mixed eggs in a bowl as you would normally do to prep scrambled eggs and added salt, pepper, and a drop of water before putting them into a pot, not a pan. "The key to good eggs à la Francaise is you have to constantly stir them and with a pot with some butter so that they're really fluffy," Luann said in one video. "That's why they're called eggs à la Francaise; they're not from the frying pan. They're like mashed potatoes."

The finished product seemed to achieve exactly the consistency Luann was going for and looked absolutely "delish" to us. The RHONY pal topped off the dish with hot salsa for some added flavor and color. Et voila: eggs à la Francaise!
