How to fry eggs

Sunny side up or firm and crispy - learn how to fry the perfect egg every time.

Step 1

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over medium heat (if you prefer not to use oil, omit it and use a non-stick pan instead). Crack an egg into the pan.

Step 2

Cook for 2 mins or until the egg is golden underneath and the yolk is set (spooning some of the hot oil from the pan over the yolk will help it cook quicker), then remove it from the heat if you like ’em sunny-side up. For a firm yolk, flip the egg and cook for a further 1-2 mins or until the yolk is hard.
