Andrew Zimmern Cooks: How to Cook the Perfect Fried Egg

Fried Eggs

By Andrew Zimmern

I like to hard sear my fried eggs in browned butter, because I love the wonderful crispy edges. Every cook should master this easy technique—there are so many dishes that benefit from a runny-yolk fried egg topping, like a brisket breakfast hash or my riff on pasta carbonara.



Heat the butter in a non-stick skillet or cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Carefully break the eggs into the hot butter. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites are set, about 3 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.



Here are a few of my favorite dishes topped with a fried egg.
