Fried eggs?

I'm often disappointed with eggs purchased from a supermarket and have struggled to find some that don't spread that watery white all over the pan. A consistent good egg isn't really something you get at the average supermarket.
local farm eggs would be one source of quality eggs I guess but that's not really an option...any sources of consistently good eggs ,? I'm considering trying some from Waitrose or similar.
 
No farms near by? We have a few that put fresh eggs at their gate with an honesty box. Usually proper running about hens too! :laugh:

This thread made me just have a fried egg sandwich. But i only really like fried eggs when the pan was used to fry bacon beforehand. Eggs fried in a clean pan just dont work for me.

I would. Half dozen free range, quid a box. All the poncey ones are way more costly, which helps keep the turnover high. Usually fresh, usually large, at least in my experience.

Waitrose do the Duchy range so as Charles is such a great advocate of organics should be good.
I read the other day we should be eating white eggs as they come from less aggressive hens so don't need their beaks clipping. Anyone know if that's true?

Try some Burford Browns, you can get them in Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Morrisons. The flavour is excellent and the yolks a deep orange colour. They're dearer, but they're worth the extra quid.
Duchy are okay too. All the other supermarket eggs are a bit meh, I've found.

As others have said, new ones stay proud in the pan. Older ones spread and are better for scrambling.
