Make the Perfect Fried Egg

The art of the sunny side up, fried egg. Master it, and you're sure to impress. Luckily, Apartment Therapy is here to instruct with another Home Hack.

HowTo: make a perfectly cooked fried egg.

You Will Need:

  • One or more eggs
  • Butter
  • Nonstick OR stainless steel skillet or frying pan
  • Large thin spatula

Step 1 Turn the heat up!

"Heat the skillet over medium heat. You should be able to feel the heat if you hold your hand about 4 inches above the skillet."

Step 2 Grease your pan.

"Place a small pat of butter on the skillet. As the butter melts, spread it around with your spatula."

Step 3 Crack the egg.

"When the butter foam subsides, crack an egg onto the skillet."

Step 4 Cook for 4 minutes.

"Set a timer for 4 minutes. (If you want the white to set more quickly, cover loosely with a lid.)"

Step 5 Done!

"After 4 minutes, take the egg off. The underside of the white should be nicely browned and the yolk should be just set."
