"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
2 eggs
5 c. water

Directions:
Directions:
In a frying pan, regular or nonstick, melt about 1 tbsp of butter
over high heat and spread it around. Turn heat to medium low
or lower. Carefully break eggs into pan. If you hear any
sizzling, the pan is too hot. Take it off the heat for a minute or
so. Fried eggs need to cook slowly so as to remain white and
soft. Cooking too fast over high heat creates a tough egg with
browned surface. Disgusting.

Over Easy - when whites are set, carefully flip and cook 30
seconds.
Over Hard - same as over easy but cook for 2 minutes
Sunny Side Up - Just cook until white is set leaving yolk
yellow.
Basted - Instead of butter, cook in lots of bacon fat and gently
spoon the hot fat over the egg until the yolk has turned pale.

Personal Notes:
The only reason I include this easy task is because most people
cook eggs at too high a temperature. So listen up!
