How do you cook your eggs with the yolk intact?

    Still a bit new here. Was looking through all the forums and found a thread in here that mentioned waiting for an egg to crack. So I figured "Why not start a new thread about eggs?". All this while I'm actually making fried eggs. Figured I'd try posting in an off topic forum. Could lead to an RPG Maker game where the quest is to find a way to properly cook fried eggs... Hmm...

    I see in a lot of people around me and I am guilty of this myself. Sometimes when I make fried eggs I somehow break the yolk. How do you go about cooking eggs while trying to keep the yolk from breaking?

    I myself break the egg into a shallow cup beforehand and add salt to it. So I hardly break the yolk when I put the egg in the pan. The problem is sometimes the egg just gets stuck to the pan, and freeing it breaks the yolk... :(

    I use a non stick pan. For fried eggs I butter the pan with maybe two tablespoons, crack open an egg and dump it in there. I wait for the transparent egg white around the yolk to turn white before flipping it over for about 30 seconds or longer. (However runny I want the egg yolk to be)

    Not sure if I am doing it right but I tried following a Youtube video. =p

    @Lonnehart you must gently ease the egg into the pan.

    Sometimes I crack my eggs into a wee glass first and then pour the egg into the pan slowwwwly

    LOL I wonder who that was :kaoblush:
    Btw at least you're better than me, I still stuck at the stage where I would spill egg innards everywhere when I tried to crack an egg.

    That works. Unless the egg breaks when you pour it in. But an easily broken yolk is a sign of an egg close to going bad. But when it does that I scramble it immediately.

    I tend to break the yolk a lot.

    But on the subject of eggs everybody needs to try scrambled eggs with sriracha sauce. Lately I've been putting that stuff on everything.
