Last week, I read that starting your day with an egg is super good for you; and the I read about how to make the perfect fried egg on Food52. Both have resulted in a life changing new morning.
Instructions: heat cast iron pan (like the le crueset one) on high for one minute, add a pat of butter, and crack the egg in the pool of (now melted) butter. Pour in a small amount of water (about a half tbsp), turn to medium heat, and cover the pan for 30 seconds (or to your liking) to let the egg steam!!
When the white is set (and I usually wait a few seconds longer so yolk is still runny but needs to be cracked), slide onto a plate (it really slides!) and salt and pepper.
This one is a bit more well done that you may like, but perfect for me:
