A Sunny Side Up Egg is a perfect way to add protein to a meal, and is a must-have skill in the kitchen! The key is timing and temperature, and following my simple tips you'll whip up the most flavorful and perfectly runny pan-fried egg.
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper,to taste
Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over low heat for about 3 minutes.
Crack the first egg and slowly add it to the skillet. You should NOT hear a sizzle when it hits the pan. That means your skillet is too hot, so be sure to turn it down. Repeat with the other egg, adding it to the other side of the skillet.
Cover with a tight lid and cook until the whites are completely set but the yolks are still runny. This will take about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Watch it closely, and don't remove the lid until after 2 minutes. Remember, do not flip the egg!
Carefully slide the eggs out of the skillet and onto a plate. Season with salt and pepper and serve with a side of toast.
