Fried Eggs Recipe

If you're watching calories, fry eggs in a nonstick pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
