The Best Sunny Side Up Eggs Aren't Finished On The Stove
When it comes to sunny-side-up eggs, many like to keep their whites tender, but that requires removing the egg from heat earlier, leaving some of the whites undercooked on the top.
While you can finish cooking the whites by covering the pan to steam-cook the surface, that can cause the yolk to be covered in cooked egg white, diminishing its visual appeal.
However, finishing cooking the eggs using indirect heat from an oven can result in a fully cooked white and a runny yolk. To start, preheat an oven to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In an oven-proof skillet, fry your egg as usual. Once there’s some egg white left uncooked, take the pan off the stove and move it to the center rack of the preheated oven.
Leave it in the oven for a minute to let the heat finish cooking the remaining egg white without overcooking the yolk, preserving the look and color of a perfect sunny-side-up egg
