I wasn't sure how well this would work for me.  I have cast iron cookware but it's not my favorite and I don't have much experience with them.  
My normal is stainless steel without oil or butter.  I broke out my tiny cast iron skillet...not too intimidating.  I cleaned it up by warming it, greasing
it and wiping it out.  Once ready, I applied a pat of butter with a metal spatula to the hot skillet.  When the butter was melted I added an egg.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must use a cast iron skillet
 - you must cook an egg on the skillet, and it must be able to slide around

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
  - a ten second long video showing the egg sliding around the pan
  - pics (or video) of the pan cleanup

Clarifications:
- All food prep and preservation BBs strictly prohibit plastic, teflon or aluminum touching the food at any point

Hope the link works. Need to figure out how to keep other foods from sticking.

After I cooked the one egg, the wife wanted to make a bunch of scrambled eggs for our dinner. The pan after looks worse than it was to clean!

Here is my video of frying the egg.
I used coconut oil and coarse salt on the cast iron.

Fried an egg in leftover bacon grease. Then stuck it in a tortilla. Yummy!

(Let's hope this video embeds correctly. First time I've tried it.)
