* This recipe deserves great eggs...the freshest, best eggs you can find. It's well worth the effort and the expense, of using free-range organic eggs from a local producer (one of the few organic items for which I notice a vast difference in taste). * If you?re frying up some bacon or have some bacon grease, you can substitute it in place of the butter for even tastier fried eggs. However, bacon grease will not go through butters visual changes that you can use to judge the pan?s heat. * A nonstick skillet is critical in ensuring an easy release of the eggs. * Stove burners or heating elements vary, it may take a few tries before you determine the ideal heat setting for frying eggs on your stovetop.
