Woman Shares Controversial Hack To Fry An Egg Without Flipping It

Some people love the hack and call it a “game-changer” and others are appalled someone would do that to a perfectly good egg.

Thanks to one TikTok hack, we know now a way to fry an egg without flipping it. We were today years old when we learned this but that’s okay.

The hack is easy enough to understand. While the eggs are cooking, water is poured under the eggs and a lid is placed on top of the pan. This allows the top of the egg to be steam-cooked, so the whole thing is fully cooked without any flipping required.

While it seems brilliant to us, it’s seemingly controversial. Some people love the hack and call it a “game-changer” and others are appalled someone would do that to a perfectly good egg. Naturally, others were quick to point out that a similar method has been used for centuries called basting eggs.
