A Better Way To Fry An Egg

How do you get a perfectly fried egg? An egg with crispy, browned white edges and a runny, soak-up-with-toast yolk? Izy from the blog Top With Cinnamon was frustrated that her fried eggs always had an overcooked yolk, so she came up with a better way to fry an egg:

As she notes in her recent post, most people fry an egg by melting a little butter in a hot pan, cracking the egg, and then letting it cook. But you risk an overdone yolk while you're waiting for the egg whites to brown. So what to do? Simply pour the egg white into the pan on its own, let it cook for a little, then top it with the yolk a few minutes in. Finish frying and enjoy!

Smart! Have you ever fried an egg this way? Read her step-by-step instructions below:
