How to Fry Eggs
How-To: Fry Eggs
Step 1: Sunny-Side Up
For sunny-side-up eggs, start with a hot nonstick skillet on medium heat. Swirl in a little butter. Tip: Olive oil or bacon drippings will work great, too.

Step 3: Add the Eggs to the Pan
Step 4: Cover When the Edges Turn White
In about a minute, the outer edges will turn opaque. This is your cue to cover the pan and lower the heat. Tip: A lid traps the steam and gently cooks the top.

Step 6: Over-Easy Eggs
If you like your eggs over easy, start as with sunny-side-up eggs, then flip the eggs when the outside whites set. Cook for about a minute on this side. Tip: Use a confident, gentle motion when flipping. Get under the edge with the spatula, then flip it.
