How to Fry An Egg
Follow it to make a quick and easy breakfast, or cook up a fried egg to serve over polenta, add to a grain bowl, or top onto fried rice. With crispy edges, just-set whites, and yolks however you like them, fried eggs are a simple, delicious way to add a boost of protein to almost any meal.
How to Fry An Egg
Here are my top three tips for how to fry an egg perfectly every time:
- Choose the right skillet. Instead of using stainless steel, I advise using a nonstick pan or a cast iron skillet that has been well-seasoned. The likelihood of a successful fried egg increases if you use nonstick cookware because fried eggs LOVE to adhere to the pan.
- Crack the egg into a small bowl or ramekin rather than breaking it directly into the skillet. By doing this, you can carefully put the egg into the pan without leaving any parts of shell behind and lessen your chances of breaking the yolk or letting the egg white spread out too much.
- Cover the pan one minute later. The egg will be cooked from the top as well as the bottom of the pan thanks to the lid's ability to trap steam. This is crucial if you prefer fried eggs with runny yolks and crisp whites.
Keeping these suggestions in mind will make frying an egg a breeze!
To prevent the egg from sticking and to help it cook up with excellent crispy edges, preheat the skillet over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon of butter or oil per egg.
Turn the heat down to low before adding the egg with caution. Cook it for one minute. Once the egg whites are set, add another 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time under the cover of the pan.
To taste, add salt and pepper to the food.

Any of these variations can be made by modifying this recipe!

- For an over-easy egg, After two minutes, remove the pan. Flip the egg carefully using a spatula. Cook for just 15 seconds on the second side, or until the whites are just set. To preserve the egg's runny yolk, remove it from the pan as soon as possible.
