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".
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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!!
