After scouring the internet, watching the food network, and trying several times without success, I FINALLY figured out how to cook eggs over easy.

How I did it:
Butter the pan at medium-high heat.
Gently add two eggs.
Lift the pan a bit so the eggs are all on one side, hold it there a few seconds while it cooks.
Set the pan back down, lower the heat a little bit to medium.
Once the bottom seems firm enough to move around the pan, get ready to flip.
Move eggs to edge of pan.
Lift pan and quickly flick it forward with some force to allow the eggs to hit the curved edge of the non-stick pan and fly upward.
Quickly catch the eggs with the pan.
If flipped correctly, the eggs will be cooking upside down. Leave them there for 10-15 seconds, then flip again.

Serve.

No eggs for me!!!! But that sausage looks mighty tempting

I've found that eggs cooked like that give me terrible burps, indegestion, heartburn. I'm talking about burps for 12+hours where I will still taste that damn egg, and I'll feel kind of sick and not want to eat anything else. And this is coming from a man who can kill a fifth of vodka in about 6 hours and feel fine the next day.

I prefer my eggs over medium. I can't tell from your pic if your egg whites are still loose. With an over medium egg the whites are firm and the yolk is runny. Runny yolk makes for a good medium to dip toast into. :drool:

You need to fry a rib-eye steak medium-rare first and then fry the eggs in the grease left in the pan. Combine the steak, the eggs, and golden hash browns for the ultimate breakfast experience.

I like the yolk runny, but the clear goo left from the egg white on a sunny side up egg skeeves me out...

All up & down I-95, south of Maryland: Waffle House. Eggs over easy, sausage, grits, wheat toast, OJ, coffee.

I don't like them over easy, and your method is pretty complicated... :lol:
I can make them anyway you want them but I have been cooking since I was 5.

I make scrambled eggs with a touch of milk and sprinkle on some cheese for my kids almost every day and they devour them.
I save a tad for myself.
Vladimir likes toast and bananas more than he does the eggs though.

Eggs over easy can't be properly done without BACON GREASE,you got lucky friend.

Amen to that!

That's how I've always cooked them. However, if you don't have any bacon readily available, I find vegetable oil to be a good substitute (even if it doesn't have the bacony goodness. :() I find it impossible to do with butter or margarine.

However, sadly, since I've been at college I haven't had a fried egg. It makes me very, very sad. BUT!! On the way home for Thanksgiving, I'm stopping at my grandmother's house in central FL to get some farm-fresh eggs from her.

Oh, the wait is long. :(

Clarify your butter if you want to fry an egg,it will raise the burning butter point.

You could cook bacon in a frying pan and follow that with almost anything to make it edible. That's maybe the finest way to fry an egg.

Down south left over bacon grease is a good beginning to many meals. Bacon grease lends a ton of flavor to veggies. Left over bacon grease is the greatest starter to milk gravy IMO. :drool:

I cook scrambled eggs in a little bacon grease sometimes. Add some pepper and it's :drool:

agreed! The only way I eat eggs is if they're scrambled and mixed with bacon, and even then I seldomly eat egg.

I prefer the flavor of whole eggs. The yolk adds a lot of richness and smoothness to the egg. In the interest of my health I eat egg beaters every morning, which is nothing but egg whites with some yellow coloring added to them to fool your brain into thinking you're eating whole eggs. Very few calories, no cholesterol, and a ton of protein.

If you want that sunny-side up egg (and don't want to mess with flipping it or want that ooey gooey on top), might I suggest that after cracking your egg(s), seasoning to taste that you cover the egg with a cover with a frying pan lid (this will still pan fry the bottom and steam cook the top.

^ Basting, it works really well if you add a few drops of water to the top of the eggs.

Save a small covered can of bacon grease in the refrigerator - it's perfect for greasing the metal 9 x 9 pan for Jiffy cornbread............

Damn, you guys are making me hungry and I JUST finished breakfast like a half an hour ago.

Cornbread is baked in a cast iron skillet in the oven.

Eggs-actly.:thumbsup: Then when you remove the lid, take the spatula and "flip" a bit of the bacon grease across the top of the eggs just before plating. YUM.

:yeah:

We always drain off the bacon grease into a jar and keep it. The Wife adds it to everything from mashed potatoes to vegetables and cornbread.

Of course, true bacon lovers only buy slab bacon so there is a bacon rind to put in with the pot of navy beans.

All the killjoys who have been avoiding full-fat foods may find this interesting... http://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/6/10/2626/pdf

Now go buy some regular milk and get on with your life. :lol:

Meh, personally I think whole milk tastes horrific. But that's because I've become so used to drinking 1% by now, anything else is ew. But other than that, I could care less, just exercise and you're good to go.
