Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over a low-medium heat (you will break the olive oil if you heat it too much).
  2. Crack open one egg into the pan. Let fry while basting the yolk with hot oil in order to cook the top. If the egg begins to bubble, lower the heat.
  3. Serve, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Do not flip the egg. It should cook with the hot oil you are splashing on it.
  • Ideally, place a chunk of feta cheese next to the eggs and pour the remaining hot oil on the cheese. This softens the cheese while basting and cooking at the same time. Heat some bread and use it to soak up the extra oil.
