How do you baste an egg?
To baste an egg, first heat a non-stick pan to around Medium.
Then add a bit a butter or similar cooking substance (oil doesn't
work as well for basted). Make sure the butter isn't burning off,
you want all the moisture from the butter you can get. Then once
the pan is coated with butter, add the egg(s). Spoon the hot butter
from the pan over top of the eggs until the white's firm but the
yellow runny. People say basted eggs are the most flavorful.
Basted's just a really awesome texture for the eggs, like having a
poached-fried egg. Enjoy! It's my favorite kind of eggs.
