Four factors determine the outcome when frying an egg: freshness, pan type, oil choice and heat level.
- 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 fresh eggs, at room temperature
- sea salt flakes
- toast and roast tomatoes, to serve
1 Place the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a low-to-moderate heat and cook until it begins to foam. Add the eggs gently and cook slowly for 5-7 minutes, until the whites are just set. Season with salt, then serve with toast and roast tomatoes.
