If you're anything like me, you love a good sunny side up egg. But more often than not, they end up being overcooked, undercooked, or just plain not sunny side up. Eggs are notoriously difficult to get right, but with a little bit of practice and this helpful guide, you'll be whipping up perfect sunny side up eggs in no time!
- 2-3 eggs
- Splash of milk
- Butter or oil
Sunny Side Up Eggs
Crack your eggs into a bowl. I like to use two eggs, but if you're feeling particularly hungry, you can use three. Next, add a splash of milk and whisk until the yolks and whites are combined. You don't want to add too much milk or your eggs will be runny. Just a splash will do!
It's time to heat up your pan. You want it to be hot enough that your eggs will cook quickly, but not so hot that they'll get burnt. If you're not sure if your pan is hot enough, you can always test it by flicking some water onto the surface. If the water sizzles and evaporates immediately, your pan is ready to go!
Add a bit of butter or oil. I prefer butter because it gives the eggs a nice flavor, but oil works just as well. Swirl the butter around so that it coats the entire surface of the pan, then pour in your egg mixture.
Let the eggs cook for a minute or two without touching them. You'll know they're ready to flip when the edges start to look set and golden brown. Use a spatula to carefully flip each egg over, then cook for an additional minute or two until the yolks are cooked to your liking. Serve immediately on toast for a delicious breakfast!
