how to make a perfect, round, over easy egg!
Step 1: Ingredients/Materials
1) enough butter to make a thin, even layer on the bottom of your pan
2) an egg
3) salt and pepper (optional)
1) a pan
Step 2: Melt Butter
melt butter in your pan, keep the heat down
Step 3: Cook the Egg
crack egg into the pan, be careful not to pop the yolk (like I did the first time). Now here is the secret to making your eggs perfect, KEEP THE HEAT TO A LOW TEMPURATURE! the egg should cook slowly from the bottom, up. it should take about 5 minutes to cook. here's the beauty of making eggs this way, you don't need to keep an eye on it, go make coffee, fry up sausage, make toast. when the thick albumen (thicker egg whites surrounding the yolk) lookvdone and aren't runny, slide the egg onto a plate and enjoy!
Step 4: Your Finished!
enjoy the beautiful, perfect egg you just made! don't worry, you can season it with salt and pepper! I used a small egg we harvested from our chickens, that's why mine doesn't look very large, in case you were wondering.
