  • cooking spray
  • 2 eggs


  • Place your oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 320 degrees F (160 C).
  • Spray a thin even coat of cooking spray onto an 8" (20cm) non-stick frying pan with an oven-safe handle.
  • Carefully break two eggs into the cold pan.
  • Place the pan over low heat and cook the eggs until the bottom just starts turning opaque.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook the eggs until the white is almost completely set (about 3-4 minutes).
  • 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.
