The simple concept of how to fry an egg, at least to many, may seem simple. How difficult can frying an egg be? Think again. Getting the right procedure can be an art in itself. In this blog, you will discover three ways to fry eggs. With a bit of gentle care, you should be able to cook them perfectly. Personally, my favorite method of cooking eggs is using a process called water frying, as it is simple, clean, easy, and healthy. Actually, the process of water cooking extends beyond simple poultry into the realms of healthy cooking.
- 2 – 4 Eggs
- Margarine, Cooking oil, Butter, or Water
- Salt and Pepper
Sunny Side Up
Add cooking oil, margarine, or butter to a preheated pan. Crack the egg in the bottom of the pan. Periodically use an egg flipper to spread some of the oil over the white of the egg. You can cook the egg until the yolk is solid, a little bit runny, or very runny. Personally, I prefer the very runny version as it is great for dipping your toast into.
Once Over Easy
As with method one, add oil to a preheated pan. Place the egg in and fry it for about 2 minutes or until the egg turns white and begins to solidify. Place your flipper under the egg and gently turn it over. Continue to fry it for another minute or two.
Water Steamed Eggs
This is a procedure I refer to as water cooking. It is a simple and healthy method to cooking an egg. Simply place some water into a preheated pan, only about an ounce or two. Allow the water to come to a fast boil. Place the egg in, put a cover on the pan, and allow the egg to cook. If you don’t have a cover for your pan, put a plate over the top.
No matter what method you use, remember to salt and pepper to taste. Also, serve the eggs with your favorite dipping sauce such as ketchup.
Enjoy your eggs.
