There is nothing worse than an overcooked egg. I am not a fan of crunchy whites or the hard and dry yolk. I love a well-cooked, over easy, creamy yolk, egg. I tried perfecting my egg cooking technique for years but never got it just right until my brother-in-law, Brett, taught me how to steam them. It’s similar to basting but instead of using fat or butter, I use water. It’s unbelievably easy and it truly makes the perfect egg. Try it–you’ll see. Thanks, Brett!
The Perfect Egg:
- Butter (or cooking spray)
- 1 egg
- Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
- 1-2 tsp water
How to Make the Perfect Egg
Crack the egg into the pan. Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add the water to the pan and cover it with a lid.
Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over. Don’t overcook or the yolk will be hard. Season with Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
I served my over-easy egg on top of an English muffin with a piece of bacon on it. Enjoy!
