Eggs


Tazio

Recommended Posts

Brilliant food form. Delicious and versatile. Scrambled, boiled, poached, fried, omelettes. I love them and because of that always buy the best quality ones I can get with lovely rich golden yolks. 
However I can’t eat a fried egg roll as the texture is all wrong, a scrambled egg on a soft roll with loads of black pepper though is a splendid thing. 
Egg haters are just weirdos with no redeeming features. 
That is all.

Don't mind a fried egg roll, preferably with bacon also. My working class credentials are in danger though, as these days I'm quite partial to an Eggs Benedict with some decent ham.

bacon and egg in a crusty roll with a bit of french butter (bit of brown sauce) or eggs benedict; both great choices 👍 also recommend a nice bit of scrambled egg on an everything bagel with some of those wee sweet tomatoes.

Scrambled eggs, warmed tinned kippers and brown sourdough toast is delicious. 

 

The other day I had a green chilli omelette with chips. Superb.

 

Anyone who puts any kind of sauce near their scrambled eggs is a deviant.

Egg should never have tomatoe sauce brown sauce or any sauce near it.

 

And beans next to egg should result in the birch.

The sauce must not go anywhere near the eggs.

Disagree, a drizzle of siracha over scrambled eggs is devine not to mention eggs Benedict and the silver spoons eggs in red wine sauce recipe!

Egg in cup with soldiers.

Knob of butter, salt and pepper in bottom of cup.  Add three or four chopped boiled eggs, slightly runny, stir, bit more salt, stir again.

Use soldiers to dip in cup as required.

OK. I will give it a go as I am a spice fan.

I think I'm being converted with the spicy sauce option, JJ.

A fried egg with brown edges is gantin. 

 

I also flick oil over the yolk at the end of cooking. Still runny though but I hate undercooked yolks.

Sriracha is a good shout. Had a Portuguese pal that had something like Tabasco that he put on a fried egg, went great in one of those papo seco rolls.

This is a decent shakshouka recipe. I’d add Harissa as well to the tomatoes. 
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/shakshuka/

 

First time I saw this was on an Ottolenghi (sp) programme, big in Israel (as I'm sure you know) we love it. 

 

Also been known to have a version made with left over Indian curry or chilli for breakfast....

Microwave an egg in a ramekin with a bit of butter for 30 seconds.  Then place inside a bun.

 

Hey presto - instant munchies food when you've come in pished.

I kept chickens until very recently and their eggs were outstanding 

Carrick Knowe has become like a haven for foxes and I can’t let em roam like I used to so I’ve had to rehome them.

I’ll miss em

I’ll miss those eggs

Always pay a wee bit more for proper free range folks. Its worth it

Shakshouka is like all Middle Eastern foods claimed by most countries. Morocco claims it, Israel is obsessed with claiming it, and the Lebanese say it is definitely theirs but they claim every good Middle Eastern food is from there.

Huevos Rotos - fried potato and chorizo with broken fried egg 😍

 

Eggs benedict with either Stornoway black pudding or a haggis slice instead of the ham. Artery clogging-tastic

I love eggs. She hates the smell of eggs so I like to make boiled eggs in the mornings, chop them up in the cup with a bit of butter, salt and pepper and leave it sitting in the cup for a few mins for the smell to radiate around the house. 

 

If you're frying, is it over easy or sunny side up? I cant stand eggs fried on one side and that snotty white they have on top. Have to be fried on both sides.

Sunny side up but you need to splash the yolk with the hot oil in the pan. But the yolk needs to be runny. A hard yolk is a sin.

Omelette ☑️

Scrambled ☑️

Fried ☑️

Poached ☑️

 

Boiled :evilno:

 

Used to get a sort of Chinese roll (bit stodgier than our morning variety) filled with thinly sliced, fried potatoes cooked with chillies (土豆丝 - Google it and make sure to ask for it next time you're in a Chinese restaurant) and a fried egg for breakfast on the way to work. Superb. Notable second place goes to Tunisian brick a l'ouef.

Does that actually work with soldiers? Sounds to thick for the soldiers.

 

I always remember mashed egg in a cup with a bit salt and pepper.

Love Eggs Benedict, but there's nothing worse if you order it on holiday for breakfast and cut into the poached egg with a knife...and no yoke pours out to mingle with the hollandaise. Totally ruins the day.

Fried eggs end up with burnt crispy edges and an unset top because people use far too much heat.

 

Do it low and slow, effectively poaching the egg in hot oil. Baste the top towards the end of cooking.

Keep the yolk semi runny.

I was at uni in the States for a while and the Shermans used to use the fizzy drink dispenser in the cafeteria at breakfast. I'm with the Iranians now.

Totally unrelated, but our first All Inclusive holiday when my daughter was around 3 yo we got down for breakfast and saw the chilled juice dispensers with the arms swilling it around...cue the ex Mrs JvC and me being buzzed on Rose wine at nine o'clock  in the morning  :lol:

Shakshouka is also a worthwhile use of the humble egg. Sets you up very nicely for the day ahead. 

If you’ve not tried this then please do so. Absolutely delicious and so easy to do.

 

A Syrian friend introduced me to this. Really good way to start the day
