    Now I am sure some of you are chuckling but i usually stick to scrambled but o/h has eaten lots of eggs today and only left me with one so thought I would have it fried but not sure how with Frylight. Can anyone help, apologies for sounding so dense :confused:

    Hiya,

    Just spray the bottom of the pan in frylight and let it heat up then crack the egg in as normal..I sometimes spray the top of mine if i am going to turn it over.

    Hope that helps k xx

    I was surprised when it worked so don't think you're the only one. I thought you'd need much more oil than that to fry an egg but it turns out you don't which is great. I'm a poached egg fan but every now and again I like a good fried egg. Nice to have them minus the grease!!

    There's lengthy thread in the recipe section devoted to the art of egg frying and avoiding the 'snot' :D

    I have had little success frying an egg with frylight, i discovered that 1 egg fried in vegetable oil is only half a syn - I'd prefer that!

    I was a bit dubious about frying an egg in frylight I have to admit, but it definitely works! I flip mine over for a few seconds at the end just to make sure it's cooked properly - yummy! I might actually have a bacon and egg sandwich tonight - you've got me craving them now!!! :D xxx

    I just pop a saucepan lid or plate over the top of the frying pan and it cooks the top a treat too.

    snot is the yucky white stuff left on the egg white that congeals and doesn't cook very well.
