How To Fry an Egg

Fried Eggs

Eggs are one of the most versatile cooking ingredients, with the ability to be cooked in many different ways.

To get the perfect, crispy-edged fried egg, follow these tips:

  • Fry eggs in a nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Sometimes, a sticking egg can do you in. If available, use a pan big enough for the number of eggs you’re cooking – an 8-inch skillet for one egg or a 12-inch for more than one.
  • Fry eggs over medium heat. A pan that’s too hot will result in a liquidy top with a cooked bottom. If the pan is too cool, the egg takes longer to cook.
  • Try covering the pan halfway through cooking to help cook the top of the egg with steam.
  • If you prefer runny yolks, the egg is done once the whites set, but if you want the yolk a bit more firm, just continue cooking. Poke the yolk with your finger occasionally to check its firmness.
