How many times

Can you fry the perfect egg? You know sometimes when you stick the egg in the pan, and it goes all shit and gooey and the yolk merges into the white bit, well that's an imperfect fried egg.

A perfect one is a nice little round white thing with a nice little round yellow thing in the middle, where the yellow is clearly defined from the white with no such messes as the above.

So, do you always fry the perfect egg, or do you never??? Do you think it gets messed up by the way you smash the shell and drop it in the pan, or the heat setting or what?

A little help here people :thumb:

    Everytime. Use the following tips.

    Loads of oil. Almost deepfry the fucker.

    And make sure the oil is hot before you break in the egg.

    And 'flip' hot oil over the top of the egg to "seal" the yolk.

    Slap between two slices of loaf, add tom sauce and enjoy! :yum:

    I can never get my fried eggs to be round, but I always manage to keep the yolk intact!!

    To avoid breaking the yolk you need to crack the egg really low down over the pan.
