Bacon. Egg. Cheese. This holy trinity has become even more popular than the church on Sundays. After grueling through another weekend, this morning delight has soaked up more alcohol than Lindsey Lohan in Vegas.

As college students, it’s our job to be broke. Therefore cooking for ourselves is a necessity, unless your parents gave you a copy of their credit card. Therefore, breakfast is normally the least expensive meal to cook. The most underrated part of the bacon egg and cheese is the precision that goes into making that fried egg in the middle.

The fried egg is the glue guy in the equation. It might not be the most glamorous, but it brings everything together. Therefore it is crucial to know how to make the perfect fried egg. Create any breakfast sandwich with this installment of EGGS100, the fried egg.

3. Using a spatula, carefully flip the egg onto the yolk side. Cook for 2-3 additional minutes for desired level of yolkiness. The longer you cook the egg the less yolk there will be for you to soak up with your bread.
