Fried Eggs My Way

Rick Long


If you break the egg in the skillet and it sizzles and bubbles the skillet is too hot!

This technique was taught to me by my Father when I was around nine years old.

Stove Top


1 large
1 tsp
1 Tbsp
bacon grease
salt and pepper to taste


1Melt butter and bacon grease in a skillet over low to medium low heat
2Break egg into skillet closer to the edge farther from you. Immediately prick white with fork in a few spots being careful to avoid the yolk. The white should turn white slowly, around ten seconds
3Tilt skillet toward you so the grease pools up a bit. Take a spoon a baste the grease over the yolk until the white glazes over it. This will take a few minutes.
4Check to see if the white is done to your liking. It should me bright white with no trace of brown edges, and the Yolk should be runny. No need to flip egg.
5Salt and pepper to taste. Plate and serve with toast and bacon or sausage.
