How to make the Ultimate Fried Egg

Understanding the key features about the white and yolk of the egg makes this the ultimate fried egg.

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 1 Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Egg 1
Vegetable oil 1 tsp
Water 1 tsp

Method

1
Put the oil in a frying pan (off the heat).
2
Break the egg into a small bowl. Scoop out the yolk with a spoon and place on top of the oil.
3
Turn on the heat to medium and start frying the egg.The yolk will cook gradually, allowing any moisture to escape.
4
Fry the yolk for 1-2 minutes according to your preference, then pour over the white (ideally, you should whisk this slightly first).
5
Add the water to steam fry and put the lid on.
6
1 minute later, the white will be solid, so you can take it off when you feel it's ready. You'll get a lovely concentrated fried egg this way.

Tips & Note

●Be careful to place the egg yolk on the oil gently, otherwise you will lose the creaminess if you just drop it on.
●As eggs age, the yolk contains more water, so it's best to let the yolk cook first and allow the moisture to evaporate before adding the white.
