Hi, Tom Papoutsis here. We’re doing easy egg dishes today, kind of the basics of eggs, how to do the simple stuff. One of the simple things is how do you fry an egg? How do you get that egg to come out just right the way you like it? Very simple, here’s what we’re going to do. I'm going to go ahead—we’re going to go to medium, like a medium-high heat. I like to kind of stay on medium-high. High gets kind of really hot and you burn things so a little bit lower is better because unless it needs to be really high at first, keep your heat down around medium-high. All right, so we’re going to put our pan on. What I’ve got is a no-stick pan. Remember, just because it says no-stick doesn't mean that it's not going to stick, it’ll kind of burn and then it won't stick. So, what I like to do is you can use a cooking spray or something like that. Typically, what I like, I think butter works the best for no-stick purposes. I'll put a little bit of butter in my pan. Let that melt up for me. Now, what we’re going to do, I'm going to let that heat up just a little bit, so that actually we can move it around that pan and coat that pan real well with it. But essentially, we can do these eggs a couple of different ways. We can do a sunny side up, which is we just leave it the way we crack it and let it cook in the bottom and we don't flip it over, sunny side up of course. If that's the way you like them, great. They are very simple, very easy. You let them cook for a while. Let that white get as kind of solid as you want it and then just scoop it off and you’re done. Now, as far as an over-easy egg—here we go, our butter is starting to get a little hot there. There we go. An over-easy egg, we’re just going to kind of let it sit for a minute or so on one side and then we’re going flip it over and get it going on the other side. Now, what I'm doing here is I'm kind of coating the sides of this pan with this butter and what that will do is, I'm a flip guy, I don't like spatulas too much, but I will use a spatula for you, so you can do it. But typically, I'll flip the eggs and get them out of there. I’ve got my egg. Here we go. Wow! I hope I can do this. I can do it, you can do it, we’re going to crack our egg on the side. Very carefully, put your thumbs in like this, just push them in very carefully and just pull apart gently and lay the egg right in there, just like that. There it is, we’ve got our egg frying, we’re doing good. Now, what I do is I give it a little shake like this. That little shake, see that butter gets to working on it and that will actually get it. It's looking a little hot. I'm going to cut my heat back just a little bit, but here’s where our sunny side up comes in. If you want a sunny side up egg, leave it there for a little bit longer until this white right here, starts to cook out a little bit. If you want you can take—I’ve got a knife here, if you see a bubble there, you can actually pop the bubble. That will help it. Let some of that steam out. You can move this egg around just like that, that's what your butter does. The butter helps it to do that. Now, typically, what I do for an over-easy is I flip it, but I'm going to show you using spatula what we do. Come in underneath the egg kind of quickly get up underneath the yolk. Once we’re under the yolk, we’re just going to take it and flip over-easy like that. See, how I give it a shake like that on that butter, keep it nice. Let's turn our heat off because we don't want it too hot. Guess what, that's an over-easy egg, it’s done. Let me get a plate—how easy is it to take this thing off of here. Well, remember I told you about that flip thing. There you go bro! There is our fried egg. The butter gives it that kind of brown, the butter got a little hot, but it will do that. If you don't want it brown like that, cut your heat back a little bit to keep your butter from burning, but there is you’re over-easy egg. Remember, if you want one that’s going to be sunny side up, then it's just a matter of just leaving it, don't flip it over just let it there. Let that white cook a little bit, take it off the pan, it's done. There you go. Fried eggs, it’s that easy.
