    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.

    My consultant told me that frying a egg in normal oil is only half a syn , well worth it if u ask me as mine always stick with frylight as well x

    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
