Transcript:Sunny-Side Up or Over-Easy EggsHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make eggs sunny-side up and over-easy.
Melt the Butter in the PanFor sunny-side up or over-easy eggs, first melt 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter in a nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium heat. Spread the melted butter around the pan.
Crack the EggWith one hand, hold the egg in your palm. Firmly tap the egg on a hard surface, such as the counter or table. You'll see that it makes an even crack.
Holding the egg low over the pan, use your thumbs to gently pry open the shell and let the egg drop.
To crack an egg with one hand, hold the egg in the palm of your hand, with your pointer and middle fingers on one side and the thumb on the other side. Tap the egg sharply against the table with your wrist straight.
Next, hold the egg over the pan and, while squeezing gently with your thumb, slide your other fingers in opposite directions. This separates the two halves of the egg shell and releases the egg into the pan.
Cook the Egg Sunny-Side Up or Over-EasyOnce the egg is in the pan, immediately reduce the heat to low. Cook the egg slowly until the whites are completely set and the yolks begins to thicken, but are not too hard.
For over-easy eggs, flip over the egg and cook for another 15 seconds. Serve eggs right away and enjoy!
