How do you like them eggs Thu, 01/29/04 11:20 AM (permalink)
I would like to know how often you eat them and how do you usually have them prepared, plus your favorite way when having an unusual or special treat for your egg dish.

I usually eat eggs only on weekends and most frequently have them "over medium". Most favorite when eating out is a traditional preparation of eggs benedict.

Other ways I enjoy eggs are scrambled with cheese and very slowly cooked so they are soft but cooked throughout. I like omelets from time to time stuffed with cheese and bacon or ham. Once in a while I will go for a medium cooked boiled egg. And not to forget egg sandwiches with pork roll and cheese. I also am known to go for poached on top of corned beef hash when the mood hits. And of course egg salad.

How do you roadfooders like yours?

    "How do I love them? Let me count the ways." Any way except boiled and cut up in something else like gravy, or with runny whites. Otherwise, I seem to be a clone of Howard, but will add:

    • Any kind of omelet, especially one stuffed with minced hard sausage
    • Sandwich with thin-sliced ham and onion
    • With a side of sausage gravy on a biscuit, so the biscuit can soak up a bit of the yolk
    • As dinner, along with the other "breakfast" accompaniments of ham, bacon, or sausage, and toast or biscuits

      Many, many moons ago, my brother and I were on a combine crew and we were in northern Oklahoma. We were in a little diner ordering breakfast. We asked for our eggs over easy. The waitress/chef said in her Oklahoma drawl "how about if I just baste them the way your mother does"? She had us pegged.

      I order my fried eggs over medium so I don't have to chase them around the plate with a spoon.

      I like poached eggs on toast or in a bowl. Lots of salt and pepper.

      Soft boiled eggs in an egg cup are fun if you can get the egg done correctly and get the top off without destroying the egg. Great way to use a lot of salt and pepper.

      I like scrambled eggs. No milk, no water, just eggs. Scrambled, not beaten to a textureless amorphous mass. As they say, if you think the eggs are done enough when they are in the pan, they are over done.

      Omelets, don't like cheese. I also like ketchup with my omelets.

      Hard boiled. Another good excuse for excess salt and pepper.

      Deviled. Mary, my wife, makes the best.

      Egg salad is great.

      Egg drop soup is good.

      I guess I just like eggs.

          Ooooooooo eggs-- I LURVE EGGS!!!! I usually have them thus:

          1. Boiled but with the yolk still a little thick and runny because I love dipping toast in them.
          2. Scrambled
          3. If fried, then I like them sunny side up with the yolk still runny but thick.
          4. Souffles galore!
          5. Making meringues with them esp the famous Aussie pavlova (topped with oodles of extra-thick home-whipped cream and kiwi fruit/strawberries)
          6. In my fried rice
          7. Poached with--you guessed it!--yolk still runny
          8. As a spanish omelette stuffed full of a selection of veggies
          9. Egg salad sandwiches
          10. Devilled eggs
          11. Egg curry, Southeast Asian style
          12. Unusual types of eggs including Thousand-Year-Old eggs and salted ducks eggs and quails eggs.

          And of course, I use helluva lotta eggs since I bake so much and so often...

            Some of my favorites:

            Deviled eggs
            Asparagus-egg casserole
            Poached on hash


            Most Saturdays my husband and I go to our little neighborhood Mexican restaurant and I always have huevos rancheros, cooked medium, with frijoles, fried potatoes and corn tortillas. Yum!

            And my all time favorite:

            Fried eggs atop enchiladas!

                Anyway but hard boiled, can't stand the yolk once it solidifies. This includes deviled and egg salad.

                Favorites include sunny-side up (with Tabasco), omelets (thin, not fluffy), soft scrambled.

                  I agree with all postings and will add "Scottish Eggs". Hard boiled eggs wrapped with thick coating of sausage and then deep fried.

                      I like to make an Italian frittata -- an open-faced omlet with tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, shallots, and seasonings and Parmesan cheese -- for guests.

                      But nothing beats 2 slices of Boar's Head ham sautéed in butter for over medium for about 30 seconds, then flipped. Add an egg and top with a slice of Boar's Head Double Gloucester, and then cover with a lid and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the egg is cooked to your liking. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve on your favorite toast.

                        I like all of these preparations but there are two others i dont see mentioned:

                        Sanke Eyes. Rip out a circle in the middle of two slices of bread, cook the bread in butter and crack an egg into each of the holes.

                        Fried egges with ketchup and fresh chives. Something my mother would do. Fry an egg, and cook the ketchup and chives in with it. The smell was incredible.

                          At home or away: over medium. That way I can not eat the yolk or not eat all of the yolk if I feel the need to have a bit of a healthier meal.
                          And I like boiled eggs in the morning prepared the night before for a quick protein breakfast. Again with the yolk, can eat or not eat if I choose.

                            Renfrew, that is definitely one that I have not tried. I used to eat ketchup with my scrambled eggs and omlettes in college as the just used the stuff that they poured out of what looked like a milk carton and they didn't have that much flavor. I think I might have to try them this way soon.

                              I love my eggs scrambled and mixed with fried green peppers (use olive oil) and portuguese linguica, then stuffed into a fresh loaf of Italian bread,great for any meal.
                              Also sunnyside up on homemade cornbeef hash, love it when the yolk sinks into the hash, with a little ketchup.
                              I also love eggs over easy put into a layer of fresh pancakes with butter and Maple syrup.
                              I love eggs.

                                How about breakfast tacos; basically huevos rancheros served in a flour tortilla? I discovered these while living in Austin, TX; since, they have become one of my favorite ways to cook eggs. My kids and I cook what has become my wife's favorite a couple of times a year: This is basically a frittata with shrimp, asparagus, portobello mushrooms, jarlsberg cheese and chives. Saute everything except the cheese briefly in butter and a little cognac, put into a flat glass baking dish sprinkle on shredded jarlsberg and bake until firm. She likes this with an onion bagel.

                                  Amen to the Scotch eggs! Terribly addictive!
                                  I love eggs in all ways, but my favorite is hard-boiled, smashed up with butter, pepper, and a little mayo, then spread on wheat toast. Yummmm!

                                    I like my eggs, scrambled, sunnyside, over easy (over medium at the Waffle House), basted, poached, in omlettes, scrambled with cheese at the Waffle House, in my hamburger and meatloaf mixtures, and especially for my linguini alla carbonara.

                                        And where would the world be without spaghetti carbonara? I'm still wating for National Spaghetti Carbonara Day to be instituted.

                                        I also like to use eggs when I make fried rice and mu-shu dishes.

                                          My favorite way to have eggs is in an omelete with bacon and cheese !!!

                                          I like hard-boiled eggs smashed into an egg salad.



                                          One thing I don't like is runny eggs !!!

                                              Spaghetti carbonara was one of my son's favorite dishes before he went vegetarian. When he's home from college, I make it with Yve's fake canadian bacon. It's hardly pancetta by any stretch of the imagination, but it's better than nothing.

                                              I think my favorite egg-cooking scene in a movie is at the end of Big Night, when Stanley Tucci makes a humble pan of scrambled eggs the way Rembrandt could create a splendid drawing with a few, simple strokes. Note that I am omitting Paul Newmann and his famous scene from this thread.

                                                I like scrambled eggs served with bacon, garden tomatoes, and white toast. If I eat them fried, I like all the white done, and the yolk sort of runny. I fix them by melting butter over medium heat in a nonstick skillet, put the eggs in, sprinkle a few drops of water on top of the eggs, then cover them with a lid for exactly 2 minutes and 15 seconds. The lid should be smaller than the skillet, but should completely cover the eggs. If it's a glass lid, you can watch them, and remove the lid when they're done to your liking.

                                                I don't think I could live without eggs, I eat them nearly every day.

                                                  JimInKy sent me a neat recipe for pickled eggs. JimInKy does not add beet juice to his pickled eggs. I add it but I am not sure it adds to the taste, but it makes them pretty. They go very well with evening libation. I sure do like them. SO makes a great deviled egg. I like the way the Waffle House does their fried eggs. I like boiled eggs with salt and pepper and sometimes a little hot sauce preferably Cholula
                                                  which is my favorite hot sauce.

                                                    Custard custard custard.

                                                    With plenty of nutmeg sprinkled on top.

                                                      Lots of ways:

                                                      1. Poached on buttered toast
                                                      2. Cheese, bacon, & green onion omelets
                                                      3. Egg Salad (I have a recipe that calls for cream cheese)
                                                      4. Deviled with extra mustard
                                                      6. Scrambled with Emeril's Essence for seasoning

                                                      But don't eat them for breakfast, mostly for a quick supper!

                                                        My husband called me from Den Haag last night and told me that he was taken for hamburgers for lunch, and the burgers were served with a fried egg on top.

                                                          I like them over-easy and love them poached with buttered toast, but often order them sunnyside up because the yolks look better in a photo. What I don't do for my art!

                                                            I make eggs for breakfast quite often. Sometimes I break one in an egg ring and have it on half a bun with Canadian bacon or soy "sausage" on top for an egg sandwich. Sometimes I make a two-egg omelet, although I tend to get carried away with the fillings and end up with something too big to eat in one meal! Scrambled is my favorite, though. I mince a shallot and saute it over medium-low heat in a little butter until it's almost ready to brown, then add two beaten eggs, fold them into the center as they start to set at the edge and take them off the heat before they look done. I won't order scrambled eggs in a restaurant anymore because I've gotten brown scrambled eggs way too many times!

                                                            I don't make them for dinner often, but when I do it's usually hash and eggs.
