What time is it where you are? It’s breakfast time? Four o’clock? Midnight? The time really doesn’t matter as long as you’re reading this article. Or rather, as long as you’re reading this article as you’re eating your breakfast. Or you’re sleeping. The point is, no matter what time of the day, over medium eggs are a delicious way to start a morning.

OIL

Olive oil: Olive oil works, but it can lend a bitter flavor to the eggs. It is one of the healthiest cooking oils, so you can use it if you’d like! Or you can try… (Source: www.acouplecooks.com

It’s very important to use a pan or skillet that’s non-stick, which will guarantee that your eggs roll off easily. Pick the right size so that your eggs have plenty of room to spread out but it’s not too big (as you’ll need a lot of butter or oil to coat the bottom).

This is a good option for dairy-free diets. (Source:

Add butter or oil, and coat the pan evenly. It’s very important to make sure the pan is well-oiled so that the eggs don’t stick. (Spread the butter with a spatula if necessary.) (Source: izzycooking.com)

In a small nonstick over medium heat, melt butter (or heat oil). Crack egg into pan. Cook 3 minutes, or until white is set. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, until yolk is completely set. Remove from pan and season with salt and pepper. (Source: www.delish.com In a small nonstick over medium heat, melt butter (or heat oil). Crack egg into pan. Cook 3 minutes, or until white is set.

Fried eggs are a classic breakfast food, and super easy to prepare at home with just a few ingredients — eggs, butter, or oil, and your seasoning of choice. Jonathan Katz is the executive chef of Bardonna, and he always has a few different variations of fried eggs on the menu at the Santa Monica brunch hotspot. (Source: www.insider.com)

I (unfortunately) scrolled through all comments so I could comment. Why do people insist on getting technical with a ” name of method?” Yes, it’s nice to know proper terms, but one comment “…I suggest you go to professional chef for a good egg…” I feel some people are negative inside themselves and spew it on others. ANYWAYS- I just wanted to say that I am 40 years old and my husband has always done all cooking for our family. I’ve had little experience. I love fried eggs (coconut oil makes little greasy.) I’ve thrown or cooked further in microwave- yuck!-due to runny whites. Even husband plays the “hit or miss” method (will it come out right or not?) I made our eggs using your direction, and PERFECT! I thank you for posting this(with pictures) I don’t care what you called it, I’m grateful! (Source: www.ahealthysliceoflife.com)

While butter is the classic fat option, any fat or oil can work. "I like to keep a jar of bacon drippings next to my stove and cook the eggs in the rendered bacon fat," Katz says. (Source: www.insider.com)

Katz says you can also make the edges of the egg crispy by giving it a hard sear. Get the pan hot, over medium-high heat. Add a little extra virgin olive oil and let it heat up for a few seconds. Crack the egg and let it cook undisturbed on medium-high heat for 20-30 seconds. Loosen it up around the edges and continue to cook to the desired doneness. (Source: www.insider.com)

Fried eggs are a versatile breakfast food that takes just a few minutes to prepare. You can use butter or any oil to fry eggs in a non-stick pan, and then cook the egg to the preferred doneness. The only difference between sunny-side up, over-easy, over-medium, and over-hard eggs are whether you flip the egg over and how long you cook it on the yolk side. Season the eggs with salt and pepper, or get more creative with spices. Enjoy a fried egg atop avocado toast, in a breakfast sandwich, or as huevos rancheros for a hearty and protein-rich breakfast.
