    Abby Girl's Note:

    From the August 3013 magazine. When checking the eggs for doneness, lift the lid just a crack to prevent loss of steam should they need further cooking. When cooked, the thin layer of white surrounding the yolk will turn opaque, but the yolk should remain runny. To cook two eggs, use a 8 - 9" non-stick skillet and half the amounts of oil and butter. You can use this method with extra large or jumbo eggs without altering the timing

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    • 4 large eggs
    • salt and pepper
    • 2 teaspoons butter, cut into 4 pieces and chilled

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in 12 - 14" non-stick skillet over low heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, crack 2 eggs into small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining 2 eggs and second small bowl. (this will ensure that the eggs are cooked all at the same time).
    2. 2
      Increase heat to medium high and heat until oil is shimmering. Add butter to skillet and quickly swirl to coat pan. Working quickly, pour 1 bowl of eggs in 1 side of pan and second bowl of eggs in other side. Cover and cook for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Remove skillet from burner and let stand, covered, 15 - 45 seconds for runny yolks (white and edge of yolk will be barely opaque), 45 to 60 seconds for soft but set yolks, and about 2 minutes for medium set yolks,.
    4. 4
      Slide eggs onto plates and serve.
