I love to cook, have done for years. This morning for the first time EVER I had flames coming up from my pan, I was stunned! Scared the heck out of me, and I don't know what I did.
Making scrambled eggs. Put sunflower oil in pan, pan on gas ring to heat. Cracked 3 eggs into a cup, whisked, added a small amount of cold water and whisked again. Waited a bit; lowered heat under pan and added eggs. FLARE UP! It died right down, and the eggs cooked fine.
I swear I have done this a gaziliion times over the years. Anyone have ideas what happened? Thank you in advance.
