  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt


In a small nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Crack the egg into a small bowl, then slide it into the skillet. Cover the pan and cook until the white is set and the yolk is cooked to a desired lever of doneness, 2 to 4 minutes (for eggs over easy or eggs over hard, using a spatula, flip the egg about halfway through cooking).
