The 1-Ingredient Upgrade for Better Fried Egg

The secret ingredient to elevate your fried eggs is butter. Adding a small pat of butter to the pan while frying your eggs can transform them from ordinary to extraordinary.

Heat the Pan: Start by heating a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter to the pan, allowing it to melt and coat the bottom evenly. 

Crack the Eggs: Once the butter is melted and bubbling slightly, crack the eggs directly into the pan. Be careful not to break the yolks. 

Season: Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper, or any other seasonings of your choice, to enhance the flavor. 

Baste with Butter: As the eggs cook, use a spoon to baste them with the melted butter in the pan. This helps to cook the eggs evenly and adds richness to the flavor. 

Cook to Your Preference: Cook the eggs until the whites are set and the yolks reach your desired level of doneness. For over-easy eggs, flip them gently and cook for an additional minute. 

Serve: Once cooked to your liking, remove the eggs from the pan and serve immediately. The buttery flavor will enhance the taste of the eggs and make them irresistibly delicious.
