eggs on the pan, let the whites settle down on the bottom, put a few drops of water near the eggs and quickly put a small lid (smaller than the pan) over the eggs. remove a bit later and you have easy sunnyside up eggs.

I got a gas range for the first time. I'm noticing that the pan heats up more on the ring the fire's at and the middle is always colder so eggs cook unevenly. When I use my smaller ring the pan takes forever to get hot enough when trying to fry an egg.

I have exactly that pan OP, it's nice. I also cook eggs in it, mostly because I'm lazy and don't want to switch between pans and finding a place to store more in my tiny kitchen.
However it's obvious you're trying to flex that you can cook eggs in it, which is kind of a sad thing to brag about, ya know? Just because some people are pathetic enough to need teflon to cook an egg, doesn't really justify thinly veiled bragging about something so basic.

>>16574441
This subject tends to make any thread devolve into endless bickering. The answer as to why the egg didn’t stick is because I seasoned the pan before adding the egg. I heat up the pan, add a bit of canola oil and swish it around the pan making sure the cooking surface is coated and then I let the pan heat until the oil reaches it’s smoke point. I then turn the heat off and let it cool back down a bit and then wipe away any excess oil. I now have a stainless steel pan that is every bit as non stick as Teflon without needing special pans or cooking on potentially toxic substances.

>>16574445
Cooking an egg is a weird thing to flex but ok lol. I just don’t own any Teflon pans, never have, never will. A ton of people on this board can’t seem to figure out how to make stainless steel nonstick like the anon above.

>> No.16574510

>>16574473
What, how to do it? Just preheat the pan hot enough and add a little fat. I prefer butter for eggs unless I need really high temp for crispiness.
I recommend preheating the pan dry at medium so it heats evenly without a chance to burn the butter. With a dry pan, you can check if it's hot enough by splashing a drop of water on it, if it glides around the whole surface then it's good

>> No.16574531

I need to invest in stainless steel but my non-stick is so damn idiot-proof and easy to clean.

>With a dry pan, you can check if it's hot enough by splashing a drop of water on it, if it glides around the whole surface then it's good
That’s way too hot to properly cook eggs. Steak and chicken etc etc that way is fine but eggs need to be at a much lower temp where water will not instantly vaporize off the surface. Here the solution is to actually season the cooking surface.

And here we go into the inevitable arguing that comes up anytime someone brings up how to make stainless steel non stick.

That's fair if you want to cook at low temps, the heat method won't work. That said, seasoning stainless seems like a waste, you'll have to refresh the coating each time and it's a whole process that will get greasy residue in your kitchen unless you have good enough ventilation. Just get carbon steel at that point if you don't want teflon.

Personally I don't mind cooking eggs at medium heat, but I like a little browning on the outside of an omelet so I might just be a psychopath. For scrambled I just keep the eggs moving constantly and they don't brown at all, just gotta be quick.

Yes it’s an extra step but I’ve gotten very good at it and can usually get it done while I’m prepping the food to go in the pan. I don’t get any splashing of the oil so the kitchen stays clean.

>but I like a little browning on the outside of an omelet so I might just be a psychopath.
You might be lol. The thing is a sunny side up egg is traditionally cooked at a temp low enough not to create bubbles in the egg which means you are leaving more water content in your egg so it stays supple and doesn’t get rubbery. I usually have to take the pan on and off the heat to keep temps that low because even the lowest setting on my stove is too hot. I fucking hate my stove but it’s still a million times better than electric.

My favorite way to cook eggs is to crack a few into a pan on a low heat, slow cook the whites while I mix them around a bit (leaving the yolks intact), then once the whites are fully cooked I take the pan off the heat and scramble the uncooked yolks into the whites. Always comes out moist and deliciously flavorful, plus it's incredibly convenient and uses less dishes since I do it all in the pan.

Nutrition-wise it's great, too: The whites get nicely cooked to improve bioavailability of the protein, but the yolks stay as raw as possible to keep their cholesterol non-oxidized and all the vitamins fully intact.

>Take off the heat and add a little more butter. Stir the butter through the eggs. Season and serve.

This method works best because the eggs are not left phlegmy, but are still moist from the last bit of butter. Plus seasoning at the end rather than the start gives a better texture, as salt can denature the proteins before they cook

The longer you leave the pan there, the hotter the pan will get.
If you crack the eggs right after you put the pan on, then "gas stove to the min", the pan won't be hot enough to cook the eggs.
So HOW FUCKING LONG do you heat the pan, or better yet, how hot should the pan be when the eggs go in?

The only thing you would ever actually use max heat for is searing meat. Eggs are always cooked at low heat and it’s usually a low enough temp that water will not dance on the pan. Set your flame to low and let it heat for a few minutes so you minimize hot spotting. You can always increase the heat once the eggs are in the pan but if you add them while it’s too hot it’s going to make your eggs rubbery at best and burnt at worst.

Hate to plug the guy here, he's almost a cliche at this point, but Ragusea has a really good video on the toxicity of non-stick pans. It's not nearly as bad as you would think, even if it chips and you swallow it its very inert and will just pass right through you. To actually get sick from the pan you need to heat it to 800+°F for a long time, like put it on high heat and fall asleep for an hour. Even then you just get the flu for a day or two. The potential for cancer is only really for workers in the factory making them, your pan at home doesn't have enough of the chemical left in it to give you cancer.

A small bit of sour cream wont taste sour you ding dong. It just reduces the over the top richness of 3/4 stick of butter in 4 eggs. Same with the chives or green onion. The spicy and fresh flavor helps balance the richness.

You will never be a good cook if you keep following instructions/amounts of ingredients in recipes as meticulously as you probably do. It's all immensely subjective and depend on many things, like the stuff you're using, your preferences, etc.

Sorry about my shitty directions, though, here you go: in order to get the best fried eggs of them all you have to leave your pan for 28 minutes and 36 seconds EXACTLY, not more, not less. After that you're good to go. Under no circumstances should water droplets pop, sizzle and/or evaporate.

Remember that a "stick of butter" is a specific measurement in America, and it's a lot smaller than an actual stick of butter like you buy in the supermarket.

No, it's exactly the size of a stick of butter that you buy in the supermarket. That's why it's called that.

American here, we don’t do that. At least to my knowledge and no one I know does that. I think that’s something 10year olds make when they think it’s cute to make their mom breakfast on Mother’s Day.

Everyone here considers a stick of butter that size to be a large amount of butter. What the fuck are other countries doing?

A stick of butter is 1/2 cup.

Why is this so true?
No other hot sauce taste good on sunny side up eggs. Other hot sauces are too vinegary or just too hot with aging of peppers at all.

Because all butter comes packaged in half cup sticks here, so it's easier to just talk about sticks and fractions of sticks.

Also, the quality of eggs counts. fresh eggs or even whole foods eggs are fucking awesome and the yolk has a yummy flavor, but average grocery store eggs suck

Never fucking ever buy from walmart. I bought 96 eggs for ten bucks for shits and giggles from walmart because no one bought it and the eggs were frozen. Terrible, terrible eggs.

They're always going to be a bit difficult to peel if they're warm. I tap both sides and roll, but it's a shit shoot whether I can successfully peel them every time.
