Try this: put 1/4" or 3/8" of oil (corn oil or some other oil suitable for frying) in your frying pan. 1/4" to 3/8" is the width of a pencil or pen. Heat that up for 3 minutes or so on medium heat (about 4 on your burner dial). Crack your eggs and dump 'em in the middle of that. Have a spatula ready, and once the egg white turns white (this will happen very quickly), start using the spatula to flip hot oil onto the yellow yolks. DON'T FLIP THE HOT OIL TOWARDS YOU! PERFORM THIS OPERATION WITH PANTS ON!!! Ha! ...A white layer will quickly form on the yolks after several flips. Move fast to hit the eggs with salt, pepper, and maybe a dash of granulated garlic and/or onion powder to suit your taste. Then pull the eggs out of the oil and let them drip over the pan for a second or two. Use the spatula, not your fingers, to do this (and keep your pants on). Put 'em on a plate with some nice wheat toast, and cram everything into your face.
Additional note- if your oil is hot when you start, as it should be, the whole operation only takes 2 or 3 minutes. More or less, once you get a few eggs cracked and in the pan, it's time to start flipping the oil to get the tops of the eggs cooked. Then you need to hurry some more to quickly salt and pepper the eggs, because once that is done you need to pull the eggs out of the oil or they will cook through, and you will be left with hard-boiled yolks. Maybe even salt and pepper them once they are out of the oil until you get quick enough to pull the eggs before the yolks get hard.
That's about all I got. Pretty simple operation.
