Kat Clark (33) posted a video that has been viewed 1.5 million times on TikTok.

"Let the steam boil on top of the eggs. I usually let it sit for about 30 seconds," said the TikToker, who recently celebrated reaching a milestone of 100,000 followers.

They couldn't believe that the secret breakfast ingredient came right from her kitchen sink!

The Aussie showed off her results by tapping the plump yolk with her finger, showing its firmness before she cuts it with a knife.

The runny insides served some delicious #yolkporn, which is a trending hashtag among foodies on social media.

"It's still really really gooey," she said.

A sizzling debate ensues

The tasty tip went down well with users, who called the water addition a "game changer".

"You're a genius!!" one wrote. "You just changed my life," said another.

The video also sparked debate in the comments section over the best way to cook eggs and which style ranked as TikToker's favorites.

Many noted that this was simply a mix between eggs that are fried and poached. Others said that a variation worked just as well.

"If you just cover it without water, you get the same result," a viewer explained.

This is not the fitness trainer's only egg video – she has another popular post that shows viewers how to easily peel eggs that are hard-boiled.

Seems like Clark is not putting all her eggs in one basket!
