How to Make Eggs Over Easy
George Weld says:
- Use a nonstick pan over medium heat. The pan should be hot, but not too hotthe egg shouldn't sizzle when it hits the pan.
- Place egg gently into pan.
- The egg actually has two separate whites, outer and inner. The inner takes longer to set and is the part of the egg that you should judge doneness by. Once inner white is solid, then you flip.
- After initial flip, let egg sit 15 seconds to set outer white, then flip again.
