Recipe for Fried Egg
Preparation Time: 1 minute
Cooking Time: 3 minutes
Serves: 1

Ingredients
Egg - 1
Salt - a pinch
Pepper - a pinch
Oil/Butter - 1/2 tsp

Method
Heat a pan over medium low heat. You can use a cast iron griddle or non stick pan. If you have a wide pan, you can make more than one eggs at a time. I just used my small non stick pan to make one egg at a time.Add the oil/butter to the pan.After about 10 seconds, crack the egg. Hold the cracked eggs about 2 inches from the hot pan and break it open. If you are scared to break it directly onto the hot pan, break the eggs in a small bowl and pour it gently into the pan. If using a wider pan, add 2-3 eggs at a time leaving space between them and cook simultaneously.Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top of the eggs. You can add this while serving too.Cook until the egg whites are fully set. It takes about 3 minutes. The yolks should be runny. You can put a lid to speed up the process.Remove it carefully on to a serving plate.
