Sunny Side-Up Eggs

READY IN: 5mins

I know this seems simple, but it took me a long time to learn how to make these without breaking the yolk, so I thought there may be some beginners who may have the same problem.

Tried your saucer idea and it works! Haven't broken a yolk since. Thanks for the great idea. Just before the egg is done I sprinkle the top of the egg with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper and put a lid on it to cook the top of the egg a little, white only, for just a few seconds, still leaving the yolk runny. Yum.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a heavy skillet and heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water.
  2. Break one egg into a saucer; carefully slip egg into skillet. Repeat with other egg.
  3. Cook eggs over low heat until whites are firm and yolks are soft, or to desired degree of doneness; season with salt and pepper.
