  • 3 eggs
  • 1 non-stick frying pan (9 inch is what I use...)
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 Shot Water (Or 2 tablespoons)


  • In your nonstick pan, liberally spray with cooking spray.
  • Crack your three eggs into the pan, being sure to space them out as far as possible.
  • Cover your pan with a lid or another frying pan upside down (which almost works better). It is important you form a seal over the pan.*
  • Set your pan to medium heat on your favorite (read: strongest) burner. For the next 4 minutes, do not remove the lid. Not to peek. Not because you hear something odd. Leave it be.**
  • Let eggs cook for ~2 minutes, or until you hear gentle popping in the pan. At this point, turn the heat down to medium low.
  • After 4 minutes of total cooking, turn heat to high, add water to pan, and cover for 30 seconds. Then uncover and remove from heat.

  • Gently salt/pepper your eggs, serve with toast.


*In a pinch, a mixing bowl works really well too)
** Seriously don't peek.
