Step 1

Crack an egg into a small bowl, make sure there aren’t any shells in it.

Step 2

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Once it’s hot, add the butter to the hot pan.

Step 3

Gently place the egg in the skillet, then cover the pan and cook until the egg white is solid.

Step 4

Keep cooking the egg until it is sunny-side up, then remove from the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Just keep in mind that if you are using salted butter, you might not need much salt.

Step 5

Meanwhile, crack an egg into a small bowl, ensuring there is not any shell in it.

Step 6

Over medium-low heat, heat about 1/8-inch of oil in the skillet for about 1-2 minutes, until hot and shimmering.

Step 7

Once the oil is hot, gently place the egg in the skillet. Let it sit for a few seconds. Tilt the skillet very slightly to one side and repeatedly spoon the hot oil over the egg. Ensuring that the white is cooked and slightly puffed, and the yolk is still runny.

Step 8

For shallow-frying, especially in cast-iron, it is easy to achieve an over-easy, over-medium, and over-hard egg without flipping the egg over; continuously spoon the hot oil over the egg until the desired doneness has been met.

Step 9

Serve with a sprinkling of salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste.
