To create perfect, runny eggs all you need is a little steam. Simply add a sprinkle of water to the eggs just after you crack them into the pan; this helps them set quickly while still maintaining a runny yolk.

  • Reduce heat to medium-low and flip potatoes once browned on one side. Cook for 2 more minutes to brown the other side.

  • Make 5 to 6 holes in mixture. Add a dot of butter and crack an egg into each hole. Sprinkle in some water to create steam. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes, until eggs are set.
