I love eating egg -- runny to scrambled! Once in awhile I like mashing up the hard boiled egg and mixing that with rice and garlic salt. It's
something 'Maw' fed us during our childhood and is similar to deviled eggs, only without the mayonnaise.
Don't even get me started, I love eggs. I make some type of eggs for breakfast every saturday morning for the family. Usually it's just runny eggs
with sausage or bacon and toast. My other favorites include scrambled eggs with lots of cheese and a little ketchup and the ultimate egg sandwiches
with an egg on a grand buscuit with meat and cheese.
When I was a kid, my grandfather used to have a softboiled egg each morning in a wooden egg cup. It was really neat and had a knit cap that you put on
the egg to keep it warm and it looked like a little man wearing a hat.
Not sure what happened to it, but would be cool to have it. I've eaten many a soft boiled egg out of it back then.
Who here among us didn't try this a couple times? :
(Truth is the best method is to have a fertilized egg; alas, the
dangers of Salmonella are not easily ignored, though
thought to be 1:30,000 eggs.)
The best regime for eating eggs, many diet gurus say is to make the proportions 1 yolk for every two whites, or maybe 1:3. There's a lot of
cholesterol and fat in a yolk, so for calorie reduction while still getting plenty of protein, it's best to cut back on the yolk.
Egg is considered as one of the most perfect foods and protein quality is based on egg protein. It's called
BV or Biological Value
Take one egg and separate the yolk from the white.
Beat the white part until it makes a peak.
Butter a slice of bread and place the white foamy egg part
on the bread. It should look like a mountain.lol
Using a teaspoon makeshift an area (on the top) the size for a yolk.
Place the perfect (none broken) yolk in the hole you just made.
Bake in oven at about 350 degrees, until somewhat firm
and the white stuff has a slight golden color.
Don't over-cook the yolk, it has to run down the mountain.
Like lava in a volcano!
Whaaa....nice. Truly the best scene involving eggs in movie history! Damn he ate a lot of eggs.
edit to add: when I was younger (college days) we used to put eggs in microwave ovens and cook them until they exploded. Not too nice for the owner
of the micowave the next day, but DAMN if it wasn't a good time watching those eggs explode. Better than shooting rats at the dump!
I like my eggs scrambled mostly, with a bit of ketchup thrown in for good measure. When it comes to omelette's, I love mine with fried onions,
cheese, mushrooms and bits of bacon and sausage mixed in with it for good measure. Along with wheat toast and butter with homefries and a pot or two
of coffee during and a newspaper to read afterwards.
Eggs Benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce and some extra English muffins for dipping, maybe a bloody mary to go with them. I actually had them
recently were the Canadian bacon was replaced with smoked salmon and it was fantastic. Now I want breakfast.....

what does "eggs over easy" actually mean. I hear this so many times on the tv, but have always wondered. Sunny side up obviously means yolk side
up, but "over easy"?
In theory, said egg is to be lightly fried on both sides with out breaking the yolk. If you break the yolk, then it wasn't "over easy" and you just
blew the order and need to pile on the hash browns to cover the mistake that you inadvertently made "fried egg"
A dog will eat a "fried egg" and never complain. In the fancy restaurants, when someone orders "over easy" and you try to pass off a fried egg on
them; could be hell to pay.
With Huevos Rancheros you can order "over easy" but if the cook breaks the yolk; you never know it because they just pile on more cheese and chili.
At home I like to break a couple eggs in a bowl, toss in a few left overs, ladle on a little gravy and put in the microwave for 2.22 min. Dash of
Tabasco and eat with a spoon. ummmm....
OMG! Jen and I like the same kind of eggs! Something else we have in common, besides dressing cats up in clothes when we were kids.
I also like chili rellenos. Everyday I have 2 eggs for breakfast, with tofu, peas and cheese. I can go all day on that, and not eat anything until
evening. Like a camel with water.
I just bought two of those silicon egg poachers. I'll see how good they work, and if clean up is easy.
Three super-runny eggs over a whole can of corned beef hash w/ two pieces of wheat bread, each piece with a ton of Country Crock on it. Throw a couple
of slices of American cheese on top of the hash right after it comes out of the pan.
You can't go wrong with any of the egg dishes at Brennan's in New Orleans either.
Oh, yeah, Dr Love! Oh, yeah, Dr Love! I think I'll take it without the cheese, however.
MrD won't eat eggs for dinner, says they're for breakfast. Where I came from, we ate them breakfast, lunch, OR dinner. Are we in two camps on this
thread? A breakfast-only camp and another group who will eat eggs anytime?
