Eggs never get boring

I generally don't get bored with any particular food, and I consider that to be one my greatest blessings. Most every day since I was a young boy I've eaten two over-easy eggs for breakfast, which means I've consumed somewhere on the order of twenty thousand eggs during my lifetime. Yet I love eggs no less than I did when I was five years old. Each time I take that first bite of egg with buttered toast or bagel in the morning my reaction is something along the lines of "Wow, eggs ROCK!"

How many of you have foods you think you could eat every day throughout eternity without getting bored?

    I could eat crispy tacos every day of my life and never get tired of them.

    Back to eggs. I have too many! The mother of my sons best friend keeps chickens and is always giving me eggs. I currently have three dozen in my fridge and am at a loss with what to do with all of them. We don't cook breakfast during the week and can only have omelettes for supper so many times before rebellion strikes.

    I have made deviled eggs, egg salad and all kinds of salads with eggs. Any ideas anyone?

    s. Although I don't eat them as much as you, I love them. I love them any way you can make them, fried, poached, scrambled, basted, baked, made into omlettes, quiches, well you get the idea. My seventeen year old son likes them even more than I do. I think he could eat them at least twice a day. They are indeed natures most perfect food.

    Lone Star: How about something in the dessert category? Something with custard uses alot of eggs: Creme Brulee? Coconut Custard Pie? Or how about a quiche - you could freeze it for a quick dinner or slice it up for easy lunches?

    As for what I could eat everyday - mmmmm - I don't think there is anything. Usually when I get on eating jags of one certain thing I over do it and eat whatever it may be for too many days in a row, then I don't want to look at it again for months - sometimes even longer. Take candy corn for example - ate so much of it one year at Halloween that I cannot even smell the stuff now.

    A food I don't get tired of? Does beer count as food?

    I'm like that with thinly sliced potatoes fried in bacon grease. Every time I eat them, I have to savor every single piece. They go great with:

    Baked eggs - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put about a tablespoon of cooked sausage or ground up leftover ham in a custard cup. Break an egg over it and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add 1 teaspoon of milk. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve with a piece of toast. You can make them without meat, just butter the custard cup before adding the egg. You can sprinkle grated cheese on top or add a bit of herbs.

    Lone Star: If you like Chinese, make Egg Drop Soup or Egg Foo Yung, or Fried Rice (most recipes take at least 2 eggs). To use egg whites, bake meringue-topped pies and meringue shells for fruit and make divinity candy. "Hide" a row of hard boiled eggs down the center of a meatloaf for a nice surprise. An old-time recipe is creamed eggs on toast (cut up hard boiled eggs in a cream sauce). Or, if all else fails, go to this website: http://www.aeb.org/recipes/index.html

    I could a hamburger every single day without a problem.

    As for eggs, I despise them. I've never liked them from the time I was born. Just recently, I was able to eat potato salad and such without picking them out. I think its mental as I love a lot of foods that are made with eggs, but just cant stand the taste of them alone.

    The sickest I've ever been was one night in college when I mixed Wild Turkey and cheap Fox Deluxe beer. I may be a Boilermaker but I sure can't drink them.

    I am not sure what you mean by easy but here is my recipe. It IS much easier to bake rather than to fry them.

    OVEN-STYLE SCOTCH EGGS

    2 12 oz. packages breakfast sausage (I always use Jimmy Dean low-fat)
    bread crumbs
    12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled.....medium sized ones are easiest to work with
    2 eggs, beaten

    Divide sausage into 12 portions. Sprinkle bread crumbs
    on dinner plate. Pat out each portion meat into a patty. Wrap
    completely around a hard-boiled egg, pressing edges together to
    seal. Roll into breadcrumbs and pat the crumbs onto the sausage meat.
    Roll into the beaten egg and place on well greased baking pan.
    Repeat with rest of eggs. Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes (until nicely browned).
    Eat them hot, cold or at room temp.

    this is very similar to a conversation that we have around the dinner table sometimes..
    "if you were stranded on an island and could only have one or two foods with you - what would it/they be?"

    mine is always the same-- pizza and beer-- i could eat pizza 3 times a day 24/7... love it...

    good topic...:)

    Eggs, the perfect food. We keep chickens and usually have quiche once per week and deviled eggs in the frig all the time. Pickled eggs we make on the weekends and sell to the local bars. Much higher profit margin than selling raw eggs.

    I love sunny size up eggs. Or omelets. Eggs have to be over easy. I dont like them too done.

    I love fried eggs on buttery toast, and I also love omlettes
    filled with cheese, onions, and jalapenos and covered in salsa.
    Food I could eat every day? Pad Thai with extra peanuts, bean sprouts, and green onions and made very hot.

    If I have leftover mashed potatoes, sometimes I make a nest of them in buttered muffin tins or custard cups, then break an egg into the nest, sprinkle with salt, pepper and a little bit of butter and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Chopped up or ground ham mixed in with the potatoes is even better.

    Lone Star: Don't forget stratas..layer bread with veggies/meats/cheeses and pour over a mixture of eggs and milk.

    The thing I could eat forever and not get tired of it? Pizza

    And another egg dish I made this morning.. homemade breakfast sandwiches... fried eggs with ham and cheese on toasted buns.

    I used to say eggs are the one thing noone can mess up, even the airforce chowhall cooks couldn't mess up an omolet at 3am but then the wife tried to shortcut the egg salad procedure by putting everything in the blender (I like my eggsalad chopped fine) eggs, mayo and onion all went in the container, a couple taps on the blend button and....................... a liquid egg sauce? juice? gravy?something or other, that a dozen (hand chopped) eggs later was STILL to liquid to make a sandwich... there's a reason the kids would meet me at the door screaming, "mom made dinner, can we go to McDonalds"

    I'm with AndreaB; I could eat Pad Thai until I explode...but the category of food that I could eat and never get sick of is chicken livers, cooked anyway, anyhow....I'll devour pates, fried with onions and bacon, etc. I have to absolutely stay away from the stuff at special occasions when it is presented as an hors d'oeuvre, because I will literally polish over a pint of it without blinking!
