Fried eggs just got a cheesy upgrade!


  • Olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoons grated Parmesan


  1. Preheat a nonstick skillet for 5 minutes over medium.
  2. Add a splash of oil and brush (or swirl) to coat
  3. Crack eggs into skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook 1 minute.
  4. Sprinkle grated Parmesan over eggs (scant tablespoon each) and cook 30 seconds more.
  5. Flip eggs and cook until cheese is golden brown and yolks are still soft, 1–1 ½ minutes.


  • Nonstick cooking spray doesn’t work as well as oil. If you end up using nonstick spray make sure you use quite a bit.
  • Large-sized eggs are important. Cook for less time of using small or medium eggs.
  • Grated sharp cheddar also works well here.
