Favorite Fried Eggs
Everyone loves fried eggs. Do you know how to make them yourself?
INGREDIENTS | MAKES 2 eggs or 1 serving
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 eggs
- Salt and pepper, as desired
Crack eggs into a small bowl. Try to do this gently so you don't break the yolks. (If the yolks do break, go to Page 24 for Cheesy Scrambled Eggs.)
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Pour eggs into the skillet and cook them until the whites set.
If you like your eggs sunny-side up, do not flip the eggs over. Cook them until the eggs are set and not runny. If you like your eggs over-easy, flip them over and cook until the other side sets.
How to Tell Eggs are Done
You can tell when the egg whites are set by their color change. The white will turn from almost clear to opaque white. The edges of the egg will also begin to brown.
