Fried Eggs

Directions

  • 1Begin by heating an 8-­inch skillet over medium heat; add 2 teaspoons unsalted butter (or bacon drippings). When butter begins to sizzle, crack an egg into pan. Cook until white is beginning to set, then use the edge of a spatula to break the albumen sac. Continue cooking until white is light golden underneath, 2 to 3 minutes, spooning butter over the yolk to cook it slightly. For “over easy,” flip egg with a spatula and cook for 30 seconds. Season with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Unsalted butter
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper (optional)
