Start your day off right by frying eggs in a shallow pool of olive oil -- tilt the pan and spoon the hot oil over the tops to give the whites crispy edges and a souffled texture. Enjoy with toast or in our Breakfast Bowl with Yogurt and Vegetables.


  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Pour 1/8 inch of oil into a small skillet. Heat over medium-high until shimmering, about 1 minute. Crack eggs into skillet; season with salt. Cook, tilting skillet slightly and spooning oil over eggs repeatedly, until whites are puffed slightly, crisp and golden brown along edges, and just set but yolks are still wet, about 2 minutes.
