You might think that a breakfast of eggs and bacon sounds easy. It’s easy to crack a few eggs into a saucepan and flip them when cooked. But how can you get perfectly set whites and yolks that remain intact and runny? If you still need to become a coffee drinker, perfect over-easy eggs can be fried in no time. Here’s how you do it.
What is an “Over-Easy” Egg?
Over-easy eggs cook on both sides. Sunny-side-up eggs only have one side and are never flipped. The yolk will still be runny when it is “easy.” However, eggs can be cooked longer to “over medium” and “over hard.”
