- Heat an heavy-bottomed nonstick skillet over the lowest heat on your stove for about 5 minutes.

- Break open each egg onto a separate saucer, taking care not to break the yolk and removing any shell fragments.

- Add the butter to the skillet and let it slowly melt and gently foam, don't   let it sizzle. When foam subsides (about 1 minute), swirl to coat the skillet.

- Gently slide each egg off their saucer into the hot butter. Quickly season eggs with salt and pepper to taste, cover skillet and cook.

- The whites will gradually solidify from transparency into snow-white cream; the yolks will thicken slightly as they heat.

- Cook for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes for runny yolks, 3 to 3 1/2 minutes for soft but set yolks, and 4 to 4 1/2 minutes for firmly   set yolks.

- Do not flip the eggs but leave the egg sunnyside up and natural.
