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.
Now to the detailed ingredient list…
Basic Fried Eggs

Fried eggs cook quickly, making it easy to whip up a protein-filled gluten-free breakfast.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high for one to two minutes. Add the butter and let melt until it stops foaming.
- Crack the eggs and slip into the skillet, taking care not to break the yolks (no worries if you do!).
- 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.
- 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!
