How to Make It

  1. Bring 1 in. water to a boil in a 12-in. frying pan, then lower heat so small bubbles break to the surface only occasionally.

  2. Crack eggs into water one at a time, holding shell close to surface and letting egg slide out gently. Cook eggs 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Lift out eggs with a slotted spoon, pat dry with a paper towel, and place 1 on each serving.
