How to Make a Fried Egg

Knowing how to make a fried egg is an essential skill in cooking. Many cooking experts say they can evaluate a chef simply by the way they cook eggs. If you've watched enough cooking competition shows, then you've surely seen a episodes focused on egg cookery: from omelettes to poached eggs.

A simple fried egg is one of the easiest ways to cook an egg, but mastery of this basic skill adds an important tool to your belt because so many dishes can be transformed from a side dish into a full-fledged meal just with the addition of an egg on top, like in this Chilaquiles recipe.

Directions for a sunny side up egg or an over-easy egg are both below, so pick your preference. If you're not clear on the difference, a sunny side up eggs is only cooked on one side, while an over-easy egg is cooked on both sides (and can be made "over-medium" or "over-hard" by cooking it longer). Some people think sunny-side up eggs are prettier, while others prefer the flavor when both sides are cooked in fat.
  • ½ tablespoon butter or canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Prep Time: 0 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving
1. In a nonstick small pan, warm butter or canola oil over high heat. Crack the egg into the middle of the pan and season with salt and pepper.

2. For a sunny side up egg, place a lid on top of pan and cook 2 to 3 minutes until the egg white is set and the edges of fried egg are golden brown. For an over-easy egg, cook about 2 minutes until the egg whites are mostly set. Use a spatula to flip the egg over.

Cook about 30 seconds until whites are completely set; serve.
