    How do you all do it??
    It's so hard.. im used to having loads of fat to flick over the egg & help it cook! :rolleyes:

    did it tonight and it turned out ok in the end, but was worried it was sticking and the yolk didnt cook for ages..
    :confused:

    I use frylight, 3 or 4 sprays into a little saucepan. Crack egg fry for a little while, then flip it over.

    It doesn't look nice but it tastes exactly the same and it makes sure 100% it is cooked!

    you need a good quality non stick pan, otherwise you egg will stick regardless of whether you use frylight or oil.

    I have a pan like this Amazon.com: Joie de Vivre 50162 Mini Fry Egg Pan with Nonstick Surface: Kitchen & Dining, which perfectly fits one egg. I spray with frylight, crack my egg in and then put a saucepan lid over the top, the steam gets trapped and cooks the egg on top and avoids that horrible sliminess you can get.

    the result is a perfectly cooked egg.

    the other way I sometimes do my eggs is to fill a frying pan with some water, not too much and not to little, once water is boiling, crack egg in and cook like a fried egg, you can ladle some of the boiling water over the top which will cook the top perfectly but still have a nice soft centre if that is how you like them.

    I don't have any problems frying eggs with fry light.. I have to let the whites stiffen a bit before I attempt at moving it around, but it cooks all the way through without needing to flip it.. Maybe you need better pans? Lol.

    we get really good 'fried' eggs in fry light, but as Britmum said you need a good non stick pan. Mine werent expensive but they are still totally non stick ( not all scratched up) we let the pan get really hot, spray in fry light and wait a touch longer, splash a drop of water in and if it bubbles and 'spits' its hot enough, when you crack the egg in it should crackle at you. then just leave till cooked. i like my yolks runny, but hubby flips his over for 10 secs to cook the top more.

    The secret is to cook them on the smallest ring and on a really low heat, takes a while for them to cook but they come out looking like perfect eggs with no horrible crispy bits

    A very good non stick pan is essential! I have no probs with frylite. I use the buttery one cos it makes the egg taste nommy. I flip the egg over, once the whites has hardened and I can move the egg around.

    I used to work in a cafe, to fry eggs there, we would start them off in the oil (or as I use now frylight) then PUT A LID ON TOP! The steam then cooks them and no splashing .... good luck
