So now I realize there's a wide world of eggs to try. So what's your favorite way to eat them?

Fried over medium chopped up on toast is my absolute favorite
Omelette with peppers and onions is second
I eat them in salads too and i love egg drop soup or fried rice....eggs are almost the only animal i eat
scrambled into garlic, onions and greens, and topped with hot sauce
over easy on toast --mmm! yolk-y!
hard-boiled and sprinkled with trocomare for an on-the-go breakfast
frittata with veggies and goat cheese
For lunch or snack:
egg salad with mayo, salt and a pinch of sugar
And, I remember reading a recipe for eggs baked into indentations made in a pan of sausage and potato hash. I always meant to try it.
We love our eggs in this house.
Migas are essentially omelets with lots of vegetables, tomatoes, corn tortillas and cheese. I saute the vegetables (onions and peppers first, then other veggies) Then, I add the cut up corn tortillas, then add the eggs on top, cover with grated cheese and put into the oven. You can do it stovetop, but mine always get scrambly (yes, I made that up) that way. When it's done, slather it with hot sauce, sour cream, salsa, avocado, etc.
I think I'm hungry.

Poach a couple of eggs. While they are poaching, wilt some spinach. Toast a couple of slices of bread. Spread with dijon mustard. Cover the toast with a bed of spinach. Put a poached egg that. Top with grated cheddar. Pop in the toster oven to melt the cheese.
Nothing beats eggs fried over easy, if you ask me. My next favorites are poached (a la eggs Benedict), hard boiled, and scrambled. I have yet to meet an egg I don't love--unless someone leaves the whites runny, that's just nasty!
*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.

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.
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!
eta-- i just looked at that link carefully and they seem to think that toad-in-the-hole is not that but something else! they're wrong!!! lol.
Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

-julia child's garlic soup with poached eggs
-papa rellena (mashed potato filled with chopped ground beef, olives, onions, boiled eggs, shaped into balls and fried)

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!
soft poached, on buttered toast
But I like eggs pretty much all ways!
'round here we use a lot of eggs, some other favourites:
egg in the hole,
egg drop soup,
frittatas of all kinds,
egg salad sammies
in salad nicoise
hard boiled with s & p for snacks

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.
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.
