If you have seen my Instagram account you may have noticed that I post a lot of breakfast pictures with sunny side up eggs. As a result I have received a few requests from people who want to know how to make sunny side up eggs. Because I like to share my tricks, today I am sharing my method of making a perfect sunny side up egg. Sunny side up eggs are simply fried eggs which are not flipped and cooked on one side with the yolk remaining intact .
While there are so many ways to eat a sunny side up eggs, the most simple way is with with a slice of toast. Another way to eat them is to make a sandwich with the egg, sliced tomato, lettuce and bacon like I did above.
Another way I like to eat sunny side up eggs is with avocado toast, sliced cucumber, turkey bacon, arugula and sliced red bell pepper. Furthermore when I make this sandwich I prefer the edges to be a little crispy to provide a nice little contrast to the soft avocado. How I achieve a crispy edge is by cracking the egg open in a extremely hot pan and cooking for 1 minute on the stove before placing in the oven.
If you don’t want to use the oven you can make a sunny side up egg on the stove top by covering the pan with a lid while the egg is cooking . Also effective method is to baste the egg with hot oil while cooking. I find the oven the method to be the easiest and less likely to mess up.
