How to fry an egg

Egg, how to, step by step
  1. Heat 1-2 tbsp of oil or 1 knob of butter in a frying pan over a medium-high heat.
  2. Crack in an egg, then immediately turn the heat to medium.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until cooked to your liking. To help the top of the white cook faster, either spoon hot oil over the top as it cooks or cover with a lid to trap the steam.
  4. Use a spatula to lift the egg carefully out of the pan.
