Course: Breakfast, Main Course
Calories: 187kcal


  • 1-2 large eggs (per person)
  • 1-2 tbsp cooking oil of your choice I use peanut oil for it high temperature tolerance
  • Salt and pepper


  • Pour approximately 1 tablespoon oil per egg into a heat proof skillet. You don't want to drown the egg, just give it enough oil to cook and not stick. Crack the egg(s) into ramekins first to make it easier to and safer add to the blazing hot skillet.
  • Heat the oil over a high heat until it just starts to smoke. Gently tilt the ramekin to slide the egg into the hot skillet. The whites will immediately start to bubble and spread around the yolk. Cook until the edges brown and begin to curl up and gets thin and crispy. Tilt the skillet and sppon the hot oil over the yolks to make sure they are cooked. If you like the yolks cooked completely, simply flip the egg and cook on the other side for about 30 seconds or cover and continue cooking for another minute or so.
  • Remove the egg from the skillet with a spatula and serve immediately. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper, and a few drops of your favorite hot sauce. Serve alone, on buttered toast, or anything else that could benefit from a crispy fried egg.
