Have a Happy Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Omelette Day with Sunny Side Up Eggs, the easy way!

Since I have learned how to make an egg with a perfectly runny yolk, but with the whites cooked all the way, this is now my favorite breakfast. 

Sunny Side Up Eggs, the Easy Way!
by Sarah G

1 egg
1 pan over medium hot heat
cooking spray
salt and pepper, other seasonings to taste
1 piece of your favorite toast or bread
hot sauce to garnish

 Spray your hot pan with a few sprays cooking spray (feel free to use a little pat of butter or even better some bacon fat…yum).  Slowly crack your egg into the pan without breaking the yolk.  I know that part is sort of a "duh!" point, but even that took me a try or two.  We ate a lot of eggs on Sundays for a while!  

Once the white begins to cook and settle, sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper.  I always add a shake or two of dried Italian seasoning for some color, of course use what you like.  

Now, get ready for the trick!  Run your fingers under cold water and splash into the pan.  Quickly cover with a lid and be patient for a bit until the whites are cooked, but the yolk is not.  This does not take long, and you can poke the whites with a fork to check them.  If you're wondering, the water and the lid will actually steam the whites before the yolk gets a chance to fully cook.  The first time I tried, the egg looked lovely, but when I asked my fiancé how it tasted (very excitedly, I might add) he asked “are the yolks supposed to be hard?”  

So, it might take some time and some eggs, but the result is worth it if you're looking for that good, runny yolk.  Practice makes perfect doesn't it? I like to serve over a piece of dry toast drizzled with hot sauce.
