Help!! I'm on my third egg and it wont come out right :( I used to eat them sunny side up and now I cant :( and I absolutely hate for my yolk and my white to be scrambled... I want a perfectly cooked breakfast egg without having to do a hard boil. as much as I flip it carefully not to break the yolk when i cut into it its still runny :(. any tips?? lol

do you have it on med or high? Make sure you put butter or spray in the pan, and try to get under the yolk with the spatula.

Heat the pan on low
Spray the pain
Crack the egg into a bowl
Pour the egg into the pan
Cover the pan and wait about five minutes and check



That is if you want a PERFECT egg

This. Idk about the bowl thing, I always crack mine right in the pan, but sometimes I also like to use a really small pan, doesn't have to be a short frying pan. That way it comes out perfectly round lol. I especially do this wen I make an egg sandwich or if I'm putting it on a biscuit. The key is low heat because it won't cook the outside as fast but will thoroughly cook the yolk. Sometimes I can do it on med heat but it does brown the outside a little too much. I like mine over easy but if I don't get the egg of quick enough it does fully cook the yolk :(

I break the yolk as soon as I put it in the pan, that way you get yolk in every bite. Let it cook on medium for a few minutes, then flip. After you flip make sure to jab at it a little with the spatula so that the runny part gets to the bottom of the pan. Flip it again if necessary.



Easy peasy!!



Edit: Are you wanting a sunny side up egg or a fried egg?

That's how I make my fried egg sandwiches. But it's not the same if you want that defined yolk lol sometimes I do just like to eat my yolk and white separate lol

Yeah, I was a little unsure of what she meant because she said she use to eat them sunny side up but now she can't. Lol



I like a little in each bite! :)

I think people crack it in a bowl to make sure the egg isn't bad?



I do it right in the pan too. Lol

It actually keeps the whites in a formed circle.. Well much more than if you crack it directly into the pan where it kinda splatters

Lol ican see how it helps control the egg going in the pan. But I don't mind the splatter. I just push it back up to the egg lol. Sometimes if the pan is not even it runs anyway so you may never ge the perfect egg lol!!! But the perfectly cooked egg is more important than how it looks haha
