 Fried Eggs
If you're watching calories, fry eggs in a nonstick pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 10 min.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs


  • In a 7- or 8-in. skillet or omelet pan, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Break eggs, one at a time, into a custard cup or saucer, then gently
  • slide into the pan. Immediately reduce heat to low. Cook slowly
  • until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken.
  • For eggs sunny-side up, cover pan and cook until yolks thicken, but
  • are not hard. For basted eggs, spoon butter in pan over eggs while
  • cooking. For over-easy eggs, carefully turn eggs to cook both sides
  • but do not cover pan. Yield: 2 servings.
