Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add just enough oil to coat the pan, then carefully wipe with a paper towel to remove excess. You want the pan oiled but no oil sitting in the pan (this makes the eggs bubble).
Crack egg(s) in pan and cook for 3 minutes uncovered (add seasonings — optional — at this time). This allows the whites to partially cook and the yolk to begin cooking slightly.
Then cover with a lid in the last 1-2 minutes to help the whites cook while the yolk stays soft for a “sunny side up” with cooked whites.
Serve immediately! Best when fresh. See serving options linked above!
