  1. Place your oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 320 degrees F (160 C).
  2. Spray a thin even coat of cooking spray onto an 8" (20cm) non-stick frying pan with an oven-safe handle.
  3. Carefully break two eggs into the cold pan.
  4. Place the pan over low heat and cook the eggs until the bottom just starts turning opaque.
  5. Place the pan in the oven and cook the eggs until the white is almost completely set (about 3-4 minutes).
  6. To help release the egg from the pan, return the pan to the stove for a few seconds over medium-high heat until you see the edges start to pull away from the pan.
