Everyone loves fried eggs, but as Antony explains, there's an art to making them.
To make two fried eggs, place a small, heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat, with 1 tbsp of butter.
Heat the butter and carefully break in 2 large, very fresh eggs. Leave them for 30 seconds to start cooking then turn down to a medium heat.
To cook the tops of the eggs, tilt the pan to bast them with the hot fat. After approximately 1 - 2 minutes, the eggs will be ready.
If you don’t like runny yolks then leave them to cook a bit longer. Remove the pan from the heat and using a slotted fish slice or spatula lift them from the pan.
Alternatively you can put the pan under a medium – hot grill for 1 minute to cook the egg.
Rest the eggs on some kitchen towel to absorb any excess fat then serve.
If you want to use butter to fry your eggs cook them over a gentler heat for a longer time so the butter doesn't brown too much.
