How to Fry An Egg
Recently on this year's program Master Chef, one of the grueling pressure tests were to create perfectly fried eggs sunny side up. It would appear to us that this should be easy, but not so. The three chef judges on the show are Gordon Ramsey, Gordon Elliot and Joe Bastianich. The whites must be cooked through, no brown edges and the yolk must be cooked, firm but still loose.
In this video they use butter as the fat which is what I have always used. However butter can cause the edges to brown. I think the video shows how you can control the heat. Perhaps though the next time I fry eggs I will try a bit of regular oil.
So if you have had any difficulty in frying eggs this video should help.
