Chef's Tip

To make perfectly cooked fried eggs, heat the pan over medium to high heat. Add oil then crack the egg and slip it carefully into the pan. Immediately lower the heat. Season with salt and pepper then place a few drops of water into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook until the whites have set and the yolk is done to your desired consistency. Slide into a plate.
