How to Make Perfect Fried Eggs

Mood: yummy

Cost: Cheap

Difficulty: Easy

Rating: XXXX
The Tease
Time To Make
7-12 minutes depending on what type of eggs you want

• 2 large eggs

• 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (cold)

• Table salt and fresh ground black pepper

• 8 inch non-stick skillet like this one

• two small bowls to hold the raw eggs

• Delicate food spatula like this one. This is the best one. However, use a flimsy spatula if you don't have it.

Preparation (Do it!)
1. Heat an 8 inch bottomed nonstick skillet over the lowest heat on your stove for about 5 minutes (if using gas, you should barely see the blue flame).

2. Break open each egg into a separate bows, taking care not to break the yolk and removing any shell fragments.

3. Add the butter to the skillet and let it slowly melt and gently foam, don't let it sizzle (if the butter doesn't foam the pan is too cool -- if the butter browns the pan is too hot). When foam subsides (about 1 minute), swirl to coat the skillet.

4. Gently slide each egg out of their bowl into the hot butter. Quickly season eggs with salt and pepper to taste, cover skillet and cook. Cook for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes for runny yolks, 3 to 3 1/2 minutes for soft but set yolks, and 4 to 4 1/2 minutes for firmly set yolks. Do not flip the eggs but leave the egg sunny side up and natural.
