How do you like your eggs in the morning?

You can have them boiled, scrambled, poached or fried. But if you answered with the fourth option, there are some things you should know before getting started.

We all know the pain of eggs getting stuck at the bottom of the pan. Not only can it be painful to budge the grease when washing up, it can also make brekkie taste horrible.

Thankfully though, we have a solution for you. And you won't need to invest in a pricey non-stick pan to achieve the best results!

Proclamation Goods revealed how to ensure food doesn't get stuck – and it's all to do with the temperature you put pans on.

The key is to put your pan on a medium heat initially. Then before cracking in the eggs, check if it's ready by dropping in some water.

If the liquid just sits there, the pan probably isn't hot enough yet. You'll need it to "make tiny beads" on the surface, which suggests an optimum temperature for frying.

Since the top tip was posted on TikTok, it's been praised by plenty. One commenter replied: "I love this."

Another said: "Most useful hack. This actually works and I always use it." And a third added: "Used this today. It works."

Some were more critical of the method though – saying they were too impatient to give it a go. A responder admitted: "I simply don't have time for all of this."

And a second agreed: "I ain't doing all that." Fair enough!
