Step 1: Lay out some tinfoil The easiest—and most sanitary—way to fry an egg on the sidewalk is to use a piece of aluminum foil. Take a pan-size piece of foil and bend the edges up, so the raw egg doesn't slide onto the pavement. Step 2: Crack the egg Crack an egg or two onto the foil. The sun will reflect off the surface and cook your eggs. Tip If you intend to eat these eggs, you might want to use some butter or oil on the tinfoil so it doesn't stick—and season your eggs with some salt and pepper. Step 3: Be ready to fib The temperature of the sidewalk needs to reach at least 158° Fahrenheit to turn a raw egg solid. Sorry, a light colored sidewalk on it's own won't do the trick. You'll need to cheat just a little. Step 4: Use a magnifying glass or mirror To speed up the process, use a magnifying glass or mirror to focus the suns rays onto the foil. Now you're cooking! Step 5: Brag a little After your egg is cooked, tell everyone that it was so hot outside that you were able to fry an egg on the sidewalk. They'll either think you are most egg-zelent or just egg-zagerating. Did You Know? Every Fourth of July, Oatman, Arizona, has a solar egg-frying contest.
