Why I Love This Recipe

Eggs can be made so many different ways!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon vegetable oil bacon fat, or butter
2 large eggs


Directions

Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. A large pan would be spacious enough to hold 2-3 eggs at a time with a bit of space between them and thereby prevent generating steam.
Pour about 1/2 teaspoon of water into the heated pan. If water sizzles and evaporates on the pan, it means that pan is hot enough to hold the eggs in the right form.

Lightly coat the bottom of the pan with oil of your preference, butter, or bacon fat (approximately 1 Tablespoon). If using butter, let it melt. You don't need a large amount of fat to fry the eggs because the pan is non-stick and you don't want the eggs to turn out greasy.
Crack the eggs gently into the pan to keep the yolks intact (remember: do not overcrowd the pan. Rather, keep a space in between the two eggs). Note: An egg ring can be used to keep the eggs round and yolks centered if desired. As the eggs cook, their color will change from clear to opaque white.

Cook until the tops of the whites are set but the yolk is still runny. This will take about 2 to 2-1/2 minutes. Meanwhile, if the oil starts to spit it is a sign that the oil is too hot...In this case, please turn the heat down to low.

When sunny-side up eggs are ready, remove the pan from the heat. Use a large, metal spatula (not rubber) to remove the eggs from the pan one at a time and place on a serving plate. The metal spatula blade is thin enough to slide underneath the eggs without tearing them. And the large size of the blade will give more optimal support to keep the soft yolk intact while transferring from the pan to the plate. Some people like to dab them gently with paper towel to soak up any excess oil but I don't dab mine because fat is flavor!!!
