Over-easy eggs are one of our favorite ways to prepare eggs in the morning because of their irresistible oozy yolk, which is ideal for enhancing a variety of delicious dishes from breakfast to lunch and dinner. Do not worry if you have never cooked an egg over easy. Simply use this recipe as your single source of instruction to produce the most delicious eggs every time.
A "sunny-side-up" egg has only been fried on one side, never flipping. The whites on the top are hardly set, and the yolk is still entirely liquid. To ensure the whites are cooked, you can baste them with butter or cover the pan for a brief period. The name has always made sense to me because of how much this egg resembles the rising sun.
Over easy eggs are only 77 calories each and hereunder the other nutrients are:
Large eggs are acceptable in any size, but keep in mind that smaller eggs will cook more quickly than larger ones. Since we are serving these over easy eggs with salt, we prefer unsalted butter. You might not need to add salt when serving if you are using salted butter.
A nonstick frying pan should be warmed up slowly. Melt the butter in the pan by placing it there.
Immediately after the butter has melted, crack your eggs into the pan. If you plan to use more than two eggs, try not to crowd the pan. Cook the eggs over medium-low heat for the next 2 minutes, or until the egg white starts to set but is not fully cooked.
Flip the eggs over with a spatula. After that, allow the egg to cook for a further 30 seconds so that the white cooks quickly but the yolk does not. After removing the first batch of eggs, cook the rest in the same manner.
The ideal over-easy egg is now in front of you: a runny yolk inside firm, fluffy egg whites. Serve alongside other sides of your choice or with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
The better eggs are the fresher they are. Before frying your eggs, be sure to check the date on them.
When your eggs start to stick to the pan, add more butter to the pan. Lift the egg-white edges to ensure that it is unsticks.
Although it can be tempting to hurry up the process of frying your over-easy egg, the better it will turn out the more patient you are!
On your over-easy eggs, always add some salt and pepper. It enhances each flavor in your dish.
Over easy eggs can be prepared in any pan, but depending upon the pan you use, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind:
For frying an egg, a non-stick pan is your best bet. It makes a simple recipe even simpler, which is something we love.
Because cast iron retains heat well and heats up quickly, it will work. To prevent your egg from sticking to the pan, check the edges frequently and make sure you have enough butter.
Use it even if all you have is a stainless steel pan. Just be careful when frying the eggs because stainless steel has some very hot spots and can heat unevenly.
