makes 1 serving

Heat a well seasoned 8-inch cast iron skillet over Medium heat approximately 2 minutes. Hold your hand about 2 inches over the skillet. If it feels warm, add 1 teaspoon of butter to the skillet. The butter should sizzle & melt quickly. Be certain the butter lightly coats the entire surface of the skillet. Crack 2 cold eggs into the skillet. Reduce the heat to a few notches above the lowest heat setting, cover the skillet with a lid & cook 2 minutes or until the egg whites is just set. If you leave the lid over the eggs too long, they will have a cloudy appearance over the surface, including the egg yolks. Gently loosen the eggs using a rubber spatula & transfer them to a plate. Season with kosher salt & freshly ground pepper.

A firm white grounds this classic egg style so cast iron is a good choice. Once the eggs hit the surface, they will begin to set on the underside almost immediately since it retains heat so well. The bottom portion of the eggs will bubble gently as they cook & create translucent spots once the steam escapes. Covering the eggs while they cook with a lid or even a half sheet pan will ensure the top portion of the egg whites become opaque in a reasonable amount of time without compromising the bright yellow yolk & the desired texture. A non-stick skillet may be used to produce similar results except that the egg whites will have a smoother appearance.

The Note 

The egg yolks will not be fully cooked. There is a risk consuming undercooked eggs as they can cause food-borne illness. Start by using the freshest, cleanest eggs possible that have been properly refrigerated. The safest eggs to use are pasteurized eggs in the shell which have been treated to kill any traces of salmonella bacteria that may be present.
