DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the butter in a medium-sized non-stick frying pan over medium high heat.
  • When it's very hot, crack one egg on one side of the pan and one egg on the other side of the pan.
  • Try to keep them from running into each other so that they can be flipped individually.
  • CRUCIAL: Poke the yolks with the eggshell (or a fork) so that they run into the whites.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on the eggs.
  • When eggs have set (edges seem firm), flip carefully.
  • I usually end up flipping them a few times to make sure the yolk is thoroughly cooked (it's okay if it's a little soft inside but not runny).
  • When almost done, top each egg with a piece of cheese and cover with a lid until melty--watch closely.
  • Spread mayo on each slice of toast, top with eggs, and put together.
