Fried egg, crispy egg, soft egg?

Chandler114 | May 13, 201907:31 AM     17

Sometimes when I go to make an egg, be it sunny side up or over easy/medium/hard, the egg is this beautiful, white, glossy oval. Almost like something out of a cartoon. (Then sometimes I can't make one at all lol.)

Other times, the edges of the whites are browned and crispy (I heard someone call it "frizzled" once?)

Sometimes I use butter, others EVOO, Usually I use my cast iron but very occasionally my steel.

I don't remember what I've done the times that I've had it for either. But I don't want to waste a bunch of food in experimenting. Does anyone know or have ideas?
