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


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs


  • 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 the whites are completely set and the yolks begin to thicken.
  • 2. For eggs sunny-side up, cover the pan and cook until the yolk thickens, but are not hard. For basted eggs, spoon butter in pan over eggs while cooking. For over-easy eggs, carefully turn the eggs to cook both sides. Yield: 2 servings.

"We have used each of these methods for years! I use virgin olive oil with garlic or peppers instead of butter. Also if you want the whites to be crisby, leave full heat on for a minute or so."
