Sunny-Side-Up Eggs

Sunny-Side-Up Eggs

This classic egg preparation can be enjoyed with a simple side of buttered toast or turned into a more elaborate meal with crispy bacon and home fries. The eggs add a boost of protein to any meal and are a terrific topping on sautéed greens, rice bowls and avocado toast. Covering the eggs during the last minute of cooking allows the yolks to warm through while remaining runny.

  1. Step 1

    In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium. Crack in the eggs, season with salt and cook until whites are just set, about 2 minutes. Cover with a lid (or invert another 12-inch skillet on top) and cook until whites are completely opaque and yolks are warmed through but still runny, about 1 minute longer. Divide among plates.
  2. Step 2

    Serve warm eggs with toast and butter, if desired, or use the eggs as a topping or garnish.
