EIGHT COMMON THINGS YOU ARE DOING WRONG WHEN COOKING EGGS

FRIED

Cracking the eggs into the skillet before it’s hot enough
When frying an egg, the butter in the pan should be bubbly and foamy

Just don’t heat up the skillet and toss the egg and the butter at the same time. You need to make sure the butter is hot and foamy before you crack your egg.

COVER THAT SKILLET!

If you aren’t planning on going the over-easy route, cover the skillet. This traps the heat around the egg, which ensures that the top of the whites firm up while the bottom remains crisp.

POACHED

Not using enough water
If you don’t have enough water, the egg may drop to the base of the pan and separate; ample water allows the egg to remain suspended and set up as it cooks.

Make Sure That You Are Using Plenty Of Water & Also That The Water Is To A Raid Boil Before You Drop Your Egg In. 

HARD BOILED

Overcooking the eggs
Heat them gradually in a saucepan covered by about an inch of cold water. Place the pan over high heat, and let them cook until the water reaches a rolling boil. Remove from the heat, cover the pan, and let the eggs stand for 10 minutes for slightly creamy yolks or 14 minutes for very firm but not overcooked yolks.

DON’T SKIP THE ICE BATH

If you don’t immediately transfer hard-boiled eggs to an ice bath, they will continue to cook, and they’ll likely end up overcooked.

When Your Eggs Are Almost Cooked Place A Large Bowl, Preferably Plastic In The Sink With A Ton Of Ice Cubes & Some Water & Transfer The Boiled Eggs.
