Master the art of frying an egg by following these easy steps.

Ingredients

  • 1 large British Lion eg
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Grilled bacon and tomatoes to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Place 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil in a small frying pan and place over a medium heat.
  2. When the oil is hot, use a knife to crack the shell and tip the egg, straight into the hot fat. Cook over a low to medium heat for 1 minute or until the white is set.
  3. Tilt the pan slightly and use a teaspoon to scoop the surplus hot oil/fat over the top of the egg until the yolk is cooked to your liking.
  4. For over easy eggs, carefully slide a spatula underneath the cooked egg and flip over to cook the yolk for 1 minute.
  5. Once cooked, lift the egg from the pan using a spatula and place onto kitchen paper to drain excess fat. Serve with a slice of buttered toast or rashers of grilled bacon and tomatoes.

Cook's tip: To prevent the egg sticking to the pan during frying, sprinkle a little salt on the hot butter or oil before adding the egg to the pan
