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.

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 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.

I've come to love baked eggs (particularly this way with croutons and onions).

I often have them sunny side up over baby spinach or arugula, or over hard as an egg sandwich (we always had them over hard growing up - having branched out recently myself since they've become a personal favorite).

Over easy sprinkled with spinach or baby greens and with shredded parmesan or mozzarella... add some fresh-ground pepper or chives, and OMG. I love putting them on homemade bread with some butter. We have eggs several times a week and I love them.

I love pickled eggs! Particularly if they're pickled with beets.

And I really didn't mean that I don't eat eggs *any* other way - it's just that my go-to egg style has been sunny for all my life, and I just discovered that ya know... without bread that's just not that fun. Over is much nicer.

Soft boiled with butter, corn flakes and garlic salt was another way we ate them growing up.
Poached in milk over toast (milk and all)
I will say I also love poached on a good sourdough toast with rosemary brown butter

And I can't believe nobody's mentioned Scotch eggs.

Oh, and we've been eating a lot of souffle pancakes lately.

And ice cream is always a great way to eat them - although I only use the yolks in mine.

Sunny side up with rye toast.

I eat the whites first. Then I dip the toast in the liquid yoke part. The firmer yoke I then put on top of the remaining toast & enjoy

We raise hens, so we have lots of eggs!!

Quiche-any way possible, sometimes with a crust, sometimes without.
Always have hard boiled on hand for the kids.
Deviled
Toad in the hole for a portable breakfast


tapioca pudding
chocolate pudding
custards

My fave-scrambled, over baby field greens or baby spinach, with a light sesame dressing! Glass of Chablis, and I'm happy!

Eating out: Over easy, with rye dry (toast, no butter) for dipping.

At home: Egg in a hole/toad in a hole, done in the cast iron skillet with lots of butter.
