DIRECTIONS

  • Spray a non-stick frying pan (size to accomodate the number of eggs) with oil spray. I often use well-seasoned cast iron skillets.
  • Place the pan over medium heat.
  • When pan and oil are heated, break eggs and place in pan with some separation between eggs.
  • When the egg whites begin to turn opaque (about 1 minute depending on how hot your "medium heat" is, pour water into the pan
  • Cover the pan tightly
  • Cook for 30 seconds before looking at the eggs
  • Cover the eggs after checking and cook until the eggs are the desired degree of doneness.
