My mom used to do this to make perfect over easy eggs every time without breaking the yolk. No flipping the eggs involved. I haven't met many people who do it this way. Crack eggs in pan, add a couple tablespoons of water and cover tightly, cooking on medium to low heat. The water will steam the top of the eggs so they aren't all runny and slimy. If you prefer over medium or over hard, just cook longer with the lid on. I have clear lids so I can see just when they are perfect. No more broken yolks from flipping the eggs to cook the tops!
