  2. 2 tablespoons butter
  3. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

  2. In a medium nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and add egg, salt, and pepper. Cook until the edge of the white is set, 2 to 3 minutes. There will still be a pool of unset white surrounding the yolk. Let egg cook about 1 minute more. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate; serve immediately.

For over hard, cook 2 to 3 minutes; break yolk with a fork and cook about 1 minute more. Carefully turn egg over, and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate; serve immediately.
