Why This Recipe Works

We decided to eliminate the guesswork and figure out the best and easiest fried egg recipe, for eggs with firm whites and yolks that set up high and thick but still runny. We discovered that there is no point in frying eggs in anything but a nonstick pan. The initial heat setting was also important.
