Sliced or Squashed :-) Fri, 03/14/08 2:15 PM (permalink)
Before this is considered a lame question, so what hahaha I am a askin
I had cooked over easy eggs this morning (actually lunch time) with some toast & bacon. I was starting to slice my eggs but decided to take my fork and squashed them into little pieces. I suddenly thought when I have time I am gonna post the question : Are you a slicer or squasher of eggs???
Full and sassy

    When I eat them at home, I squash them. When in a restaurant, I slice them.

      When you say slice are you referring to using the side of your fork to cut off pieces to eat, or are you talking about slicing eggs up with a knife? I've never heard of anyone squashing eggs. I use the side of my fork to cut off egg to eat.

          Poker.
          I poke a little hole and let the yellow run out. Add a tich of Salt and a bunch of pepper. Sop that up with toast.
          Then eat the whites separately, in once piece, on another piece of toast with bacon, more Pepper, another tich of salt, and sometimes a few drops of hot sauce.
          It's a whole production.

          Yes. Yes, I am odd...

            Slice, or sometimes I will seperate the top of the yoke and egg white from the bottom to place seperately on toast.

              I actually dip my toast in the yolk first, eating as much of that as possible.Then I take my fork and slice off pieces of the remaining egg, and put it on the rest of the toast....

                .....and I am even more odd.....I hate eggs! Just thinking about slicing or smashing that yellow yolk makes me shudder. Love scrambled and hard boiled, omelets, etc., but just plain old eggs with all that runny yellow yolk turns me green! Sorry, all you egg lovers out there.

                      I am a slicer, and never even dreamed people squashed until I saw my sister-in-law do it one day. I thought it looked terrible. I have since tried to be more tolerant, but I still don't like to look at her plate when she does it.

                      But one time I was at a lunch counter next to a guy who was eating his whites only, and leaving the soft yolks intact. I asked him what his plan was for the yolks, and he said he liked to put one in his mouth and squeeze with his tongue until it burst.

                      I didn't hang around to watch. The guy was just too close to his food, if you know what I mean.....

                        I get them over easy then slice and mix them with the potatoes.

                                I'm a squasher of eggs over easy from way back. Crumble my crispy bacon on top of squashed eggs and lap 'em up with some nice toasted English muffin! This started in childhood...only way my mom could get me to get a fried egg. Do it at home only unless I think no one's looking!

                                  I normally eat the white around the yolk with my toast (slicing it away with my fork). Then I eat the entire yolk in one bite with a bit of toast.

                                    Over Easy, slice them and then mix them with the hash or grits or both.

                                      Squash the yolks, get funky with the toast, slice the rest with the side of my fork, mix up with potatoes, consume.

                                        I always eat the whites first, just to get them out of the way of the 'good eating'. Then I'll take half of the yolk and smear it on toast, then use the other half to dunk my bacon in...continuing that way until it's gone or my doctor gets involved.

                                            Hi, I'm Kinsman, and I'm a dipper.

                                            Bust the yolks open; salt, pepper, Worcestershire and hot sauce. sop it up. Then the whites get eaten with the toast. Fried eggs are awesome.

                                              I never fry an egg unless it is going to be placed on something like toasted bread or english muffins, or corned beef hash. Then I slice, and hopefully some of the yolk will bleed onto every bite. I might help it a little.

                                              Otherwise, it is an omelette for me.

                                                I never fry an egg unless it is going to be placed on something like toasted bread or english muffins, or corned beef hash. Then I slice, and hopefully some of the yolk will bleed onto every bite. I might help it a little.

                                                Otherwise, it is an omelette for me.


                                                That's the beauty of squashing them. Actually, I don't know if the term squashing gives the best description though. If your egg is over light or over medium, instead of cutting with the side of your fork, you simply use the flatness of the tines to sort of mince the egg until the yellow and the white are thoroughly mixed together. Not a bite without yellow and not a bite without white. Whether you eat it with a fork or put it on toast or muffin, it's mighty good that way.

                                                  Looks like I will have to take my scrambled eggs and go sit at another table. An over easy, fried egg, or runny yolk will never be on my plate. Yep, Donna, turns me green too.

                                                    I poke the yolk open and spread some of it around the white, then dip whatever I'm having with them into the yolk, (hash, bacon, sausage or toast). When the egg is gone I wipe the rest of the yolk off the plate with toast.

                                                    This is the only way to eat eggs over easy!

Love scrambled and hard boiled, omelets, etc., but just plain old eggs with all that runny yellow yolk turns me green! Sorry, all you egg lovers out there.

                                                      I will eat hard boiled, but throw the yolk away. Only time I do eat the yolk would be mushed in potato salad.

                                                        That's funny. If I had my way, eggs would be 2/3 yolk and 1/3 white. When I make devilled eggs I add a couple extra yolks and discard the whites.
                                                        Getting a "double-yolker" makes my day.

                                                          We do breakfast every Sunday and I order 2 eggs 'sunny' and slice them, primarily because I eat one yolk and cut around the other. High cholesterol is a genetic problem in my family and one egg yolk contains 156% of you're daily allowed cholesterol intake. If that wasn't the case I'd prolly' smash em' both and sop it up with toast :)
