Fried eggs: Use mason jar rings
Andrew Purcell for Reader's Digest
For perfectly round fried eggs (handy for breakfast sandwiches), heat a pan and spritz Mason jar rings with cooking spray. Place the rings on the pan, and slowly drop one cracked egg into each of the rings. Cook for about 5 minutes for a medium yolk. Use tongs to remove the Mason jar rings, and serve.
Scrambled eggs: Add crème fraîche

To cook scrambled eggs that aren’t too runny or too dry, heat a large pan over medium high and add a tablespoon of butter. Crack six eggs directly into the pan. Egg whites and yolks have distinct flavors, and whisking them may cause a loss in depth of flavor. Scramble for 1 minute, and then add a tablespoon of crème fraîche. Its fat makes eggs creamy and soft. Mix and continue to cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute (total cooking time: 1½ to 2 minutes).
