Frying up a few eggs takes five minutes and only a little finesse; all you’ll need are the eggs themselves and a few simple tools. So read on to get started; an easy and filling breakfast—or breakfast for dinner—awaits.
What you'll need:
- As many eggs as you’d like fried or called for in recipe.
- 1-2 tablespoons butter
- 8-inch skillet
- Small custard cup or glass bowl
1. In an 8-inch skillet, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Break egg into a custard cup.
2. Carefully slide egg into pan from custard cup. Repeat with another egg. Immediately reduce heat to low.
3. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, spooning butter over eggs, until film forms over top and whites and yolks are firm, not runny.
For a lighter take on fried eggs, omit butter and use a nonstick skillet! Cook eggs over low heat about 1 minute or until edges turn white. Add 4 teaspoons water. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until film forms over top and whites and yolks are firm, not runny.
