HowTo: make a perfectly cooked fried egg.
- One or more eggs
- 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."
