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."
