Eggs?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I thought I was going crazy for a sec there I couldn't find make a new thread.

This has been bothering me for awhile now, Do you like brown eggs or white eggs better?

For me I simply just can't stand white eggs and I like a good brown egg. Strange I know.

What about you?

Not too sure. Usually I have white eggs. Actually it is not really white but biege eggs. I know there are some eggs that are really white. Have not really eaten much brown eggs nor have I tried those black eggs. Quail's eggs are nice. Those small little eggs? Crack them then put them in your clear soup. Mmm yummy.

Okay I like the Choclate eggs

I can't stand a real egg I haven't been able to eat them in years since I cracked one open in the pan one day to make breakfast for my daughter when she was little and there was a half form chick in it Sorry if too graphic for anyone.

Yikes! that'd be enough to put anyone off!

I love eggs. Any way, shape or form. Brown shells are nice to look at, but I don't find there's a noticable difference in the food inside, so I tend to buy white ones, since they are less expensive.

Now, chocolate ones...those are special!!

Actually that is a delicacy in some countries. I saw a lonely planet episode and the host was given an egg was a partially form chick in it. It even had a bit of feathers. And you are suppose to eat it raw. As she was trying to take the contents out with the fork, she 'accidently' spilled the egg/chick on to the floor. I guess she was too freaked out to eat it, from the looks of shock on her face when she saw what was being served and the fake opps and smile that appeared on her face when she 'spilled' the contents on the floor. Although she did take a tiny little bite or what was left in her spoon.

If I am not wrong that episode was shot in an indo-China country. But if you go to Philippines or Hawaii, it is a duck egg instead of a Chicken and is called a Balut and is supposed to be a popular aphrodisiacs. Found some stuff about it in the page below.

Can't eat eggs. They aren't good for my dieting.

I voted "Other" because I don't buy eggs. I'm allergic to them and my throat swells up when I eat them.

I also like the chocolate eggs!

I heard brown/beige eggs are more nutritious.I don't live in a farm, but hens that are not bred to lay eggs or given special feed, their eggs are not all white. And Bumpy you are quite right about duck eggs eaten in the Philippines. They taste pretty good although they aren't nice to look at. They are also good for the health.

Ewww! I couldn't eat a half formed chick.I was going to put easter eggs on it but figured they could go under other!
Interesting hearing others thoughts..I'm having a big fat brown egg with yum golden yolk for dinner!

I prefer the white ones
post #12 of 26
I had to go with "other" since I'm vegan and haven't had an egg in over 10 years. The best eggs I can remember eating was back when my aunt had hens and the eggs were really fresh. They weren't really white, but they also weren't as brown as what you see in the store. I recently read that an organic raw egg yolk is a nutritious occassional snack for kitties!

I dont mid what colour as long as they are free range. I have heard that the shells are getting lighter due to the reduced amount of colouring the producers are putting in the food stuffs.

Hmmm, I have never had a brown egg before. I always buy the white eggs. What is the difference? Also, if I EVER cracked an egg and found a half formed chick inside I would probably never be able to eat an egg again. Yuck!
post #15 of 26
I've never found any difference in brown or white eggs. I don't care for either but my kids love to eat eggs of any sort.

I semi-grew up on a farm and half formed chicks were a common thing..I buy eggs from a farmer here and every once in awhile I still get them..I guess you get used to it??
post #16 of 26
I always buy the white eggs. However that could be because when I was a kid I had a babysitter that lived on a farm and once time she cracked a brown egg and you guessed it there was a half formed chick inside. It creeped me out and I haven't eaten a brown egg since.

We only buy eggs from free-ranging chickens (from a local farm), and all of them are brown. I don't ever remember seeing white eggs from free-ranging chickens in stores - perhaps some breeds are more suited to living outdoors, and others to the batteries? White eggs are, of course, much easier to dye for Easter. This year I didn't bother with the dye - I just put Easter stickers on the shells.
Some pet stores here sell frozen, day-old chicks (male?) that you can feed to your cats. I've never bought them, but I know some people who do.

I am extremely sceptical about free range chickens. Read reports and news articles that free range chickens increase the probability of avian influenza. And that studies have shown that there is a higher level of toxins in free range chickens then in industrial farms. This is because modern industrial farms are better equiped to deal with certain food poisoning bugs, hence their level of toxins are lower than free range chickens.

I don't eat eggs often, and when I do, I have them at the local family restaurant for breakfast. I have no idea what colour they are but they make a great eggs - sunny side up

I've read that too, but I find it odd that these "studies" are being published at a time when the egg industry wants to stop the EU's prohibition of batteries from being enforced in 2007. I'd rather take the chance of more toxins or avian flu - I simply find the conditions the hens are kept in horrific. We buy "organic meat" for the same reason.

I always get brown eggs. My mom always told me that brown eggs were local eggs, and they're fresher. I don't even know if that's true, but the only time we'd ever get white were to dye them!
post #22 of 26
We buy both. I guess they taste the same to me because I never noticed a difference?

Aren't there fertilized and unfertilized eggs? Or are all eggs actually little baby chicks in the making?
post #23 of 26
I voted for white. I have only had brown eggs a few times when I was young, so I don't remember if they tasted different or not.

I love eggs any way they are cooked - hard boiled, fried (sunnyside up) scrambled (strangled) deviled and so on!
post #24 of 26
MMMmmmmm fried egg and peanut butter (chunky) sandwiches

I voted for brown since all the eggs I get are beige/brown.

I like egg salads. You know, boiling the egg in water. Then mash it up with mayonnaise. Sprinkle some herbs and pepper and depending on your taste place it in the fridge to cool down. Then either place the egg salad as spread on your bread or if you do not want to have bread, take spread them over cut slices of fresh tomatos. Mmm yummy.

Also I love French Toast. Actually it is more to do with maple syrup rather than the toast.

Have you tried century eggs before. Personally I hate it. You may find them at your local chinatown. It is eggs that have been preserved by being covered with a coating of lime, ashes and salt before being shallowly buried for 100 days. The lime "petrifies" the egg, making it look like it's been buried for at least a century. The black outer coating and shell are removed to reveal a firm, amber-colored white and creamy, dark green yolk. The flavor is pungent and cheeselike. They will keep at room temperature (under 70°F) for up to 2 weeks or in the refrigerator up to a month. These preserved eggs are usually eaten uncooked, either for breakfast or served as an appetizer, often with accompaniments such as soy sauce or minced ginger.

The egg has to be fertilized to produce a chick. So if theres no rooster about, then there shouldn't be any problems with fetuses or whatever in your breakfast. I like all eggs, but Im too lazy to vote, so just count this as one for both!

Peace,
Brandon
