José Andrés' Hot Spatula Method For Mess-Free Fried Eggs
To chisel a crispy pan-fried egg off the skillet without botching it, Spanish-American chef José Andrés relies on his trusty metal spatula.
Heating the spatula in hot oil for a few seconds will help separate the egg from the pan. It will seamlessly glide under the egg and allow you to slide it right onto your plate.
This trick is even more efficient and hassle-free if your fried egg recipe already calls for oil. This saves you time and effort and ensures no extra dish is slathered in oil.
