Every stovetop has a different low setting, and skillets vary in thickness and heat conductivity. It may take a few attempts to determine the best timing for your equipment. For us, 3 minutes was perfect for completely set whites and thick but runny yolks. If you like very loose yolks, shave off a minute; for lightly browned whites and firm yolks, add a minute. To make just two eggs, use an 8-inch nonstick skillet and 2 teaspoons of butter.

4 large eggs

Tip

Don’t break the yolks when cracking the eggs into the bowl. If you’re not confident in your egg-cracking skills, break the eggs one at a time into a small bowl before combining them.

Ingredients
  • 4

    large eggs

  • 1

    tablespoon salted butter

  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Step 1 of 2

Cook the eggs

4
large eggs
1
tablespoon salted butter

Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over low heat for 3 minutes. Crack the eggs into 1 bowl. Add the butter to the hot pan and swirl until melted. When the butter stops foaming, slowly pour the eggs into the skillet. Gently nudge the yolks with a wooden spoon to divide and space evenly in the pan.

Step 2 of 2

Season and serve

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Working quickly, season the eggs with salt and pepper, then cover the skillet and cook until the whites are completely set and the yolks are bright yellow, about 3 minutes. Slide out of the pan and onto plates.
