The great egg debate...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Its official- eggs are good for you http://medcomres.com/articles/eggs_are_good.htm

So how am I cooking them?
post #2 of 27
I personally like my eggs super over-easy, like barely cooked I also like poached eggs, barely cooked. I only like scrambled eggs in they're drowned in cheese sauce, and that would kinda negate their healthiness, huh?

I like mine over medium but I chose over easy as that is the closest. I like the whites done but the yolk runny so I can dip buttered toast in it. Yum!

I went for poached... Meant this to be a public poll, been so long since I did one I forgot how to do the instructions

I have to have eggs with something, so I picked omelette.

Over easy, but I don't actually like eggs..I just dip my toast in the yoke and waste the whites

I hate doing eggs 'over easy' as Epona has them as I find it impossible not to break the yolk
Just checked- eggs in fridge are in date

I was allergic to them as a child and I've never fully outgrown that allergy. I can have eggs within other things, but man I get sick when I try to eat them by themselves!

I tried to fry up some eggs for a friend once and they were inedible. And I'm a good cook!!

I can only cook them scrambled or as an omellett.

Be prefers them to be "dunky" (soft yolks), but I don't have the attention span to cook them like that and always overcook them.

If you don't cook them for yourself it's not as easy as you'd perhaps think to get them right for someone else! I hate cooking eggs for other people, I can do them the way I like them (over easy) perfectly but trying to get them just perfect for someone else if they want them a different way can be tricky.

Nate - I knew you would have poached!

I like mine poached, it reminds me of whenever I was sick and home from school....my mom would always make me poached eggs on toast.

I love eggs in any way, shape or form except badly cooked scrambled eggs!

Scrambled, but it has to be "well done" -- if there are any soft, gooey parts to it .....

I like dippin eggs. Gotta have the yolk a little runny to dip toast in. I like scrambled eggs too though. They are good with hashbrowns and hot sauce.
post #16 of 27
I didn't choose any of those options. I like egg whites only (i hate the yolk) I put honey, butter, salt and pepper in mine, mix it all up and sort of fry/scramble it in the frying pan It's yummy!!! / When I make Colin's - i give him the egg yolks i don't use plus a few extra eggs and put honey, butter, salt and pepper in his too and screamble them
post #17 of 27
Hmmmm never heard of putting honey in them. I might have to give it a try.

However you cook your eggs, make sure they are completely 100% cooked, meaning that the yolk is also hard cooked.

You can get Salmonella poisoning and die from eating under cooked eggs!

I just had a couple hard boiled eggs. I love them hard boiled and deviled but can't stand them any other way.

I didn't vote, cause all of them apply to me. (Yes, including the allergy bit).

I don't care. I love eggs.

Learn a couple of great egg recipes and you'll be so happy. Eggs are quick and easy, or can be a bit special - like Eggs Benedict with Serrano ham instead of the regular kind - etc.

I really only like eggs scrambled or as an omlette. But I have to have mine completely cooked, too. I can't eat runny eggs.

what is really weird, is that I never thought I liked eggs, but then I realized I just didn't like scrambled eggs, and that's the only kind my Mom ever made, but since I discovered over-easy and poached now I love eggs!! and eggs benedict is too die for! I actually made Hollandaise sauce at home one time and holy moly that stuff is worse the alfredo sauce, all it is is egg yolks and butter

I make my scambled eggs to resemble hollandaise sauce (but with the whites left in).

Eggs benedict is the best thing ever.

I love eggs pretty much any way they come, as long as they're not overdone -- firm whites, but runny yolks; soft scramblies. And Eggs Benny is indeed a wonderful thing. In fact, I think we're overdue. Must pick up some ham today or tomorrow so I can do it on Saturday.

I chose 'over easy' but I also like my eggs sunny-side up, scrambled with american or shredded cheese melted in and hard-boiled.
