Cooking eggs sounds simple when in fact it can be quite intimidating. I was at a family get together when I went to cook breakfast I noticed that all of the pans near the stove were pealed, scrapped, and chipped non-stick pans. I asked if they had any other pans and they mentioned that they had stainless pans but that there wasn’t much use in using them ended in a sticky stuck mess. It was then that I got it. They didn’t know how to use the pans. I had been there one day. More egg stuck to my pan than came off on our plates. I was beginning to think that there was no other way to cook eggs than with teflon.
If you are in this boat and you cook with teflon because you think it is the only way to get a non-stick type surface, then this might help – preheat your pan. I used to think that preheating my pan was just a bother until I tried it. If you let your pan get a little hot, enough that the butter on the pan starting bubbling, then most likely, when you put your eggs in the pan, they are not going to stick. I have been cooking 8-12 eggs a morning for a number of years with my stainless pan and the only time the eggs stick, is when my pan is not hot enough when I put them in. So today’s little tip, if you or someone you know thinks that advertised “non-stick” surfaces are the only way, you might challenge that thought tomorrow morning.
