|1||Heat the serving plates.|
Gently separate the yolks of 2 eggs.
|2||Take care not to break yolks from the whites.|
|3||Melt 1 knob butter in a non-stick pan on medium heat.|
When the butter is melted, add 1 teaspoon water. This is the secret of how to cook the white without it forming a crust.
|4||Tip the egg whites all at once into the pan...|
|5||...and cook until they are just set.|
Salt and pepper to taste.
|6||Turn down the heat and very gently place the yolks on top of the cooked whites, spacing them evenly.|
Leave like this on low heat for about 3 minutes to heat the yolks through.
|7||Transfer to a hot plate. Your fried eggs are ready and perfectly cooked: the whites are set, the yolks runny. Serve immediately as they spoil quickly.|
|8||The video on the right will show you the method in more detail.|
You will have to excuse the brown edge on my egg white - I didn't clean the pan after the first two...
