Reading: how to cook runny fried eggs
All you’ll need for this recipe is a quality cooking pan (we prefer cast iron over stainless steel or non-stick), a bit of oil to grease the pan, good quality eggs (we prefer organic pasture-raised), and seasonings of choice (we prefer salt and pepper).
Once your pan is hot over medium heat, add a bit of oil, swirl to coat, then crack your eggs in, being careful not to break the yolks.
Then season with a pinch each salt and pepper (or desired seasonings) and cook for a few minutes uncovered (this allows the whites to start cooking without the yolks getting cooked).
Around the 3-minute mark, just before the whites are cooked, cover with a lid. This will allow the whites to firm up without overcooking the yolks.
Ah, perfect eggs every time. There you have it!
Enjoy these as is or with our favorite breakfast potatoes, sweet potato hash browns, or avocado toast!
