Introduction: Make Perfect Sunny Side Up Eggs

Hey Hey all! Lil Smokie is at it again! Today I will give you the directions to make perfect sunny side up eggs.

I find that making 1-2 eggs at a time works best. When I use this technique on 3 or more my eggs come out more "over easy" then "sunny".

Step 1: Grease the Pan

Today I used bacon grease. However butter, coconut oil, grape-seed oil, olive oil. Whatever your favorite lubricant is in the kitchen should be fine!

Step 2: Heat Pan to Mediumish

I have an electric stove..its not my favorite. Had to make a few trail and errors over a couple months of breakfasts to figure out the perfect temp on this stove. I find mine works best on between 3-4.

Let the pan heat up for a minute or two before adding your eggs. Its always best to add stuff to a warm pan.

Step 3: Crack the Egg and Put It in the Pan

I think it is best to use the flat surface of my stove top or counter to crack the egg on.

Step 4: Season the Eggs

I use Black Pepper, Salt, and Garlic.

other delicious herbs you can add are:

Turmeric, Basil, Cayenne, White Pepper, or whatever your favorite herbs are!

Step 5: Heres the SECRET!!

Get a Lid for your pan and add a little bit of water to it.

Then distribute the water around the outside of the eggs.

Place the lid on top to create a "steam" effect. This will allow the top of the egg white to fully cook while the Yolk stays nice and runny...gonna have to catch it!

Step 6: Gently Loosen Up the Eggs

Once the whites are fully steamed to perfection about 1-3 mins remove the lid.

Use a spatula to loosen the eggs off the pan.

They shouldn't be stuck but it is just nice to make sure.

Step 7: Slide on to Your Plate and ENJOY!!

Cold or warm or hot water? Are the eggs straight out of the refrigerator or allowed to warm first before cracking? Love what you've done. Looking forward to trying it.

Those are called basted eggs. They look great.
