Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet with high sides over medium heat.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in skillet. Crack each egg into skillet, sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper, then fry sunny-side up until set. Cover the pan with a lid to speed up the cooking process.
