Eggs Sunny Side Up Recipe

Please Share Y'all!

 

Prepare perfect eggs sunny side up with the whites cooked all of the way through leaving a beautiful runny yolk. Grab yourself a slice of toast and get to dipping in that rich egg yolk.

Sunny side up eggs are a favorite for many and they are easy to prepare perfectly every single time using the right method.

Eggs are a breakfast staple in our house. Having our own little backyard flock of chickens keeps us stocked in the most nutritious eggs.

Ingredients

  • Farm Fresh Eggs
  • 2 tbs Butter or Cooking Oil

Preparing Eggs Sunny Side Up

 
 
 
Add butter or cooking oil to a small skillet and heat over medium.
 
Crack one egg into a small bowl or ramekin.
 
When the butter is melted, add the egg.
 
Cook approximately 2 minutes and use a spatula or spoon to work the cooking fat over the top of the egg. This ensures the whites cook thoroughly. Pay particular attention to the whites just around the yolk.
 
Remove from skillet and serve.
 
If I’m serving sunny-side up eggs, I allow whoever is eating them to season with salt and pepper themselves so you get a beautiful egg-cellent presentation. 


Repeat the above process for each egg you wish to serve sunny-side up.
 
To turn it into over-medium eggs: After the egg whites have cooked through, flip the egg and cook an additional 10-20 seconds then remove from skillet.
