Fry this the Spanish way, with a bit of hot olive oil and a cast iron skillet. Serve it with chopped herbs and crusty bread, over a grain bowl, or on top of avocado toast.

A SIMPLE OLIVE OIL FRIED EGG

2 Eggs

2 pieces of great bread, toasted

a few tbsp of olive oil

cracked pepper

A tsp of fresh herbs – I used chives

Heat about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a very small, heavy skillet. I used cast iron. Heat over medium-high heat until very hot; it should just be almost beginning to smoke. When the oil is hot enough, carefully slip the egg into the oil and immediately turn the heat down to medium-low. Spoon the hot oil over the egg as it cooks. Cook for no more than a minute and a half then take the pan off the heat and remove the egg with a slotted spoon. Top with cracked pepper and chives. Serve with a piece of great bread, toasted.
