How to Make a Perfect Over-Easy Eggs

If you like over easy eggs, but hate to flip them, here's a nice thing I learned while cooking for a living. Have a nice flat pan or a skillet that allows for a flat center. Get a cup with some water, and a good lid that covers the pan or at least the eggs.

Heat your oil or butter to warm, drop in the eggs and immediately make a circle of water around the edge of the egg(s). Cover and steam them till the yolks are white and not yellow. Voila!


1 egg           
Cooking spray or pat of butter
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tbsp water

Tools needed:                

Skillet with lid (preferably glass lid if you have it)  

Lightly spray a medium low heat skillet with cooking spray or use a pat of butter. Gently crack two eggs into the skillet keeping the yolk intact and keeping them separated in the pan. When whites are set around the edges, season with salt and pepper.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of water the middle of the pan and sides of the eggs. Cover with the lid and increase the heat slightly so the water begins to steam and bubble. When you see a white cloud inching up the sides of the yolks, they're almost done. When the yolk is completely covered by white, they are done! Serve immediately.
