There are a lot of ways to cook up some great eggs, but a truly crispy fried egg is a whole different beast. Here's chef J. Kenji López-Alt's method for making a fried egg that perfectly balances crispy egg whites with a creamy yolk. López-Alt of Serious Eats suggests if you want a fluffy, delicate egg, just poach it instead. If you want a real fried egg, López-Alt demonstrates his favourite technique in the video above from his YouTube channel. Add to two to three tablespoons of vegetable oil or olive oil to a non-stick skillet, and heat the oil on medium-high heat until it's shimmering. Swirl the pan to distribute the oil, carefully add the egg and season with salt and pepper. The egg white should be bubbling in the hot oil. Now tilt the pan so the oil collects at the bottom, then spoon the hot oil over the top of the egg whites. Remove the crispy egg from the pan with a wood spatula and serve. It will be cratered, bubbly and actually taste fried.

Alas, my McDouble-loving friends, it appears McDonald's has sent the popular burger off into the sunset. From what we know, it won't be replaced with the McSingle, or the McTriple, leaving fans to make do with less-thrifty substitutes.
