  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Break each egg into a small bowl or ramekin.
  3. Step 3

    Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until it is shimmering. Turn the heat down to low and then, one at a time, slide the eggs into the pan.
  4. Step 4

    Place a lid or plate on the pan so it is tightly covered. Cook the eggs, covered, for about 2 1/2 minutes, or until the whites are firm and the yolks are still bright. If your low heat setting is on the hot side, begin checking the eggs after about 2 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange the eggs on a plate and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
