  • Strain eggs to remove loose whites; place the individual eggs into small bowls or mugs.
  • Heat oil in a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat. 
  • Gently pour the eggs into the hot pan, leaving space between them. 
  • While the eggs cook, season them with salt and pepper. 
  • For runny yolks, cook the eggs for 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook the eggs for 1 to 2 minutes longer. 
  • Remove the eggs from the pan when the whites are set and the yolks are to your liking and serve.
