I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Over Easy Fried Egg
...in your mind.

Over Easy Fried Egg

Makes 1 egg - An over easy egg is one of the great joys in life - and learning how to make one without breaking the yolk is important. That being said, you might need to break a few yolks to master this. But once you do - put them everywhere: on some rice, a burger, a benedict, pancakes...the possibilities are endless.


  • One egg
  • Butter


  1. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add a little butter
  2. When the butter stops foaming, crack egg into the pan and season with salt and pepper
  3. As the white part is starting to set, make sure to lightly loosen the edges with a spatula - you don’t want any sticking
  4. If any white part tries to escape, herd it back into the oval-ish egg shape
  5. NOTE: The key is to not flip too early
  6. Once the whites are mostly set - which is anywhere from about 45 seconds to a minute - take your spatula and in one quick move, slide it completely under the egg and then gently flip it over
  7. Now it’s only a matter of about 20-30 seconds on that side until it’s done
  8. Use the quick motion with the spatula, slide under the egg and put wherever it’s meant to go.
