What's your fave way to eat eggs? - Page 2

post #21 of 50
How do I love them? Let me count the ways...
*I love to have boiled eggs on hand for a quick snack
*I make a German pancake/Dutch baby at least once a week
*sunny side up on toast, mmmmm!

DH loves them scrambled or in a German pancake.

spinach and feta omelette

soft boiled over buttered toast

omelette with bacon or ham, mushrooms and cheddar cheese

poached and placed over a green salad with little bacon crisps, tomato and a light viniagrette, parmesan shavings on top

sunny side up on a corn tortilla with some black beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream, avocado

Love eggs. Thankfully my kids do too. DH can't stand them and will not eat them so we often have them for lunch when he is not home.

Egg in the Basket!

What I usually have for breakfast is onions, peppers and sausage (morning star) fried up in butter, add egg and cheese (Kerrygold cheddar) omlette-style on a croissant. My kid loves it too (won't eat daddy's eggs but loves mommy's). And I thank Costco for making this meal affordable!

Western Omelette on whole wheat toast

Quiche

Over easy (if fried)

Somewhat tight/dry if scrambled (not sure how to describe this, but I've had scrambled eggs that are just too loose and creamy and sloppy for my taste).

And of course, Eggs Benedict on very special occasions!

Sautee some veggies--broccoli, spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, & onion is my favourite. Whip up a few eggs with some rice milk and scramble it all together. Like an omelet only not as hard to make.

Mixed with sugar and flour and baked!

Or pretty much any way but soft boiled in a cup - not since I had one just after dd1 was born and found a feather when I was 1/2 way through.

Other than baked in cookies? I liked the ice cream idea, too

huevos rancheros - I make these all the time because it is just so yummy.

I get free range organic eggs just a few kilometres from my home - they are so yummy.

Dunkin' eggs... (aka sunny side up). But I only like them with toast, so I can dunk, of course. I like eggs done other ways, but that's my go-to.

Ah, the English never get any respect from us Yanks for their cuisine! Actually, in the UK, I've only ever heard it called "Eggs on Toast" and that's what my ex(bf, not dh), who is English, would call it. I don't recall ever even hearing it called "Eggs in a Basket". Interesting both from a linguistic perspective and food culture perspective. Off to check out the link...

I eggs! I don't think I have a "favorite" way to eat them, though. Most ways will do just fine.

The only way I DON'T like eggs is when the whites are runny. I love hot, runny yolks, though.

The most nostalgic way of eating eggs is soft-boiled over torn bits of toast with salt and pepper. I had strep throat often as a kid and my dad would fix eggs this way for me. It was easy on my throat as long as the toast was not crispy.

We're having quiche tonight for dinner.

I call that toad in the hole too.


I can't think of a way I do not like eggs. I do not like eggs overcooked and I do not like the whites runny, that is about it.

I have never had pickled eggs, I am not eating that.

Fried - over easy
poached
scrambled (but only when DH makes them for me)
baked
omelettes
deviled - but then I only eat the yolks
in the hole...

Yum! I love eggs

I like an egg sandwich for breakfast. I mix a little Dijon mustard and hot sauce into the beaten eggs, then scramble them up, and then they go between two pieces of toast with crisp lettuce or raw spinach and, depending on the season, a slice of tomato, turnip, or apple.

I'm off to make that for breakfast now!

Scrambled with cheese, but they have to done right. I can't stand scrambled eggs cooked dry. There still needs to be a fair bit moistness in them. I also like to saute onions, peppers, and diced ham then scramble in the eggs and cheese.

Shirred eggs are my 2nd favorite. Put minced garlic and some olive oil or butter in a small ramekin (like you'd use for creme brulee) and put them in a preheated low oven (I usually use the toaster oven) till hot. Pull it out and crack in 2 eggs and sprinkle thyme or dill on top. Then cook in the oven till the whites are mostly firm while the yolks stay runny. Maybe finish it with a bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and eat it with toast.

Yk, I use to say that. Then we acquired some quail and everyone kept asking if I was gonna make pickled quail eggs. Then when dh asked me to make them, I did and lo and behold, I actually loved them! I made them just a few days ago.

That said, I like eggs, and we have free range chickens. We eat LOTS of eggs.

egg custard
quiche
fritatta
egg and bacon sandwiches
eggs and asparagus
hard boiled eggs
cuban eggs
ice cream
breakfast burritos
crepes
the list goes on
southern scramble (over biscuits w/sausage gravy!)

I have a cookbook w/about 100 egg recipes.

I had to look up the recipe for Cuban eggs - they sound delicious!

I love eggs, too! The ones we have most frequently is eggs in a frame (oh, yee of a thousand names!), just because it's a quick and easy breakfast that everyone likes.

My middle ds likes eggs fried hard, which is difficult for me to even watch him eat, but I'm a nice mama, and I cook them for him.

I like eggs fried over light. Yum! dippy yellows. I also love eggs benedict (and eat it every New Years' Day), egg salad, deviled eggs, eggs scrambled soft, egg tacos/burritos, and pretty much any other way I can get them.
