wants a cracker
- Dec 9, 2006
I can't eat eggs. Hate them. No hippie-stuff, taste-and-texture-wise.
Ok, there are hundreds of ways to cook eggs. From what I have seen most people have just one or two favorites that they make themselves. Even the humble scrambled egg should not be dismissed, as it's harder to make properly than people think (if you've ever had a properly scrambled egg, you know what I'm on about).
So what are your specialties and favorites? No poll because there are just too many options to list.
I have two.
The Cream Cheese Eggs - Bell peppers, green onions, and diced ham, sauteed in butter. Cover with scrambled eggs to make an omelet. Season with a few herbs or salt and pepper as desired. When done, serve folded over a spoon full of cream cheese, top with salsa - hot sauce is optional, but I like a dash of Cholula. (I found this is a hit after... uh, how do a put this - an "active" night in.)
The Open Face - Two slices of wheat toast, lightly buttered topped with three eggs over easy. Salt and pepper and Cholula or green Tabasco.
Ok, one more:
The College Breakfast - I taught the kitchen to make this for me when I was an undergrad.
One croissant, cut down the middle (like a sandwich bun) and placed on the grill to toast it. Make a sandwich containing one fried egg, a slice of cheddar, salt, pepper, a dash of hot sauce. A slice of tomato is nice in there too.
