Eggs Butter Salt and pepper Water


Over high heat, melt the butter. You’ll want to get the butter very hot and foaming.


Lower heat to medium and crack eggs in the pan. Cook for 3-4 min until the white begins to set.


Add salt and pepper to taste.


Add water to the pan, cover, and cook eggs for 2 more min until yolks reach desired consistency. Or, to baste with butter, spoon hot butter over the eggs as they cook.


Like fried eggs but healthier, basted eggs help get breakfast on the table fast!
