Make The Perfect Fried Egg

If you ask a dozen chefs how to fry an egg sunny side up, you’ll probably get a dozen answers. This method from the folks at Food52 is a little different and may just help you perfect your egg-frying technique.

Yes, we know it’s not exactly difficult to fry an egg, but it’s also not difficult to ruin that fried egg by leaving it on too long, using the wrong pan, not adding enough butter or oil to keep the egg from sticking and so on. This method is definitely on the fattening side, but it’s a near-foolproof way to make sure your fried eggs come out perfect every single time. In fact, it’s similar to the method that Chef Jose Andres uses, and he even points out how sometimes the simple things can be the most challenging to master.

If the type of fried egg you prefer doesn’t match up with the video above, maybe one of these methods will suit your fancy instead.
