      I recently learned how to make a perfect fried egg on my favorite cooking show, Good Eats.  It’s simple but I always manage to burn them and lose the runny yolk I so love. It took a lot less attention, fat and time than I would have thought.  2 weeks and about a dozen eggs later, I can assure you that Alton Brown’s method will not only give you a perfect fried egg  but also plenty of time to prep anything else you have going on with the meal.  The clip below is a ten minute section of the show and covers hash browns and bacon as well—go to about minute 7 to skip right to the egg cooking. Check it out!

        • Fried eggs are amazingly easy once you get the hang of them.   I enjoy cooking them because it is so easy to actually see when they need attention.  

          When I started my career as a restaurant cook, I’d never cooked a fried egg in my life.  I can’t stand eating them, so never bothered to learn to cook them.  The learning curve was pretty steep when I had to start cooking dozens every morning!!!!!

          Alton is awesome.  He is so good about telling you the how and why of things, and I remember watching this segment some time back and saying to myslef, “oh that’s why we do it the way we do.”

        • Oh, yes Melissa, I’m still cooking.  Never intended to make a career of it, keeps the bills paid, and I never have to worry about being out of work.

          I can do breakfasts with my eyes closed.  (I think I have- I’m not always too awake when I get to work)  Put the hashbrowns on, then the bacon.  When I turn the bacon, flip the hashbrowns and put the eggs on, then put the toast down, take the bacon off, flip the eggs (for over easy’s) butter the toast, plate it all up.  

          I’d love to find a job where I had nothing to do but breakfasts!
