Trisha Yearwood's Tip For Frying Eggs To Perfection

Country music superstar Trisha Yearwood wants to help you fry better eggs. And bake better biscuits, sweet potato pie, and honey-glazed ham – if you'll let her. The "She's In Love With The Boy" singer just rounded out her 17th season sharing her family recipes and personal kitchen know-how with viewers in her long-running Food Network series, "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" (via Food Network).

A world-famous performer, TV host, Grammy winner, Emmy winner, cookbook author, cookware designer, step-mom, and dog-mom, Yearwood apparently really can do it all (via Trisha Yearwood). Oh, and she's the longtime wife of country legend Garth Brooks, who made her 2022 Valentine's Day meal so special. She even launched her own dog food line in 2022 designed not just to be good for your pet, but to actually taste good to them, too. After all that, there's no doubt she's picked up a few tips and tricks to keep up her sleeve, and Yearwood generously took a few minutes away from her busy schedule to share her tip for perfectly fried eggs with People.

Trisha's secret to flavorful fried eggs

According to People, like another well-known Southern celebrity chef, Trisha Yearwood is all about the butter (and olive oil). For her, it seems flavorful fats are the secret to beautiful fried eggs.

"Even if you're using a nonstick skillet, use a little olive oil or butter when frying eggs. Carefully tilt the skillet so the oil or melted butter pools at front edge of pan, and use a spoon to baste the tops of the eggs as they cook. This adds flavor and helps your eggs cook evenly," Yearwood told the magazine.

There you have it, folks. Sizzling hot butter or oil will help the eggs cook evenly. Using olive oil or butter instead of any old oil in the cupboard will add a little extra richness and depth to the flavor. And basting the yolk tops with that piping hot oil will not only help the yolks cook (a perennial problem when frying eggs) but also impart a little of that extra nutty or buttery flavor to the yolk and the top of the white. Plus, how well does that sound like it would crisp up? Yum!
