Eggs, How to Fry
Learn how to cook fried eggs.
Melt enough butter in heavy skillet over medium heat until 1/8 inch deep and hot. Break egg into custard cup or saucer; carefully slip into skillet. Immediately reduce heat to low. Cook 5 to 7 min, spooning butter over eggs, until whites are set, a film forms over top and whites and yolks are firm, not runny. For over-easy eggs, gently turn over after 3 min and cook 1 to 2 min longer.
Butter, margarine or bacon fat can be used. Cut fat by using nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray before heating. After cooking eggs 1 min, add 2 tsp water for each egg. Cover and cook about 5 min longer or until a film forms over top and whites and yolks are firm, not runny.
