Basic Fried Eggs

A good fried egg is one of life’s simple pleasures. And by simple, I mean it takes just a few minutes to get that egg fried. In addition to being tasty on their own, fried eggs are a key part of Huevos Rancheros (or my Quinoa and Black Bean Cakes, prepared like Huevos Rancheros) or Croque-Madames. Fried eggs are also great toppers for burgers or fried rice.

Basic Fried Eggs

    Fried eggs cook quickly, making it easy to whip up a protein-filled gluten-free breakfast.



    1. Heat a skillet over medium-high for one to two minutes. Add the butter and let melt until it stops foaming.
    2. Crack the eggs and slip into the skillet, taking care not to break the yolks (no worries if you do!).
    3. Fry until the whites are set and the yolks are just starting to cook. Remove from heat and serve with a dash of salt and pepper on top.
    4. If you are feeling adventurous, you can flip the eggs in the pan part way through cooking. I like my yolks pretty runny, so I don’t do this. It’s your egg…have it your way!
