As I'm cooking up some eggs right now for my son and I, I thought it'd be interesting to see just how many different ways people like to eat their eggs.

For both my son & I it's over medium. My wife prefers scrambled.

All depends. My standard is two over medium, two whole wheat toast, some bacon or sausage.

If I'm in a hurry, the eggs are scrambled.

If I'm having pancakes with my eggs, I like them fried hard.

Scrambled if in a hurry? I seem to get my eggs faster when I cook them over medium than I do when I scramble them for my wife. Maybe I'm just out of practice for scrambling. Or I just don't want to injure anything on my lathering hand. Wink

I was feeling frisky a couple weeks ago and tried my hand at making an omelet (after reading a couple how-tos on the Internet first) & I was pleasantly surprised with a pretty good omelet. A little runny on the inside, but otherwise very nice.

Either as an omelet, loaded with diced ham, onion, green pepper, cheese and some sort of hot sauce,

or Sunny side up, served over something that will soak up all that snotty goodness, like buttered wheat toast or hash browns.

Then there's what we called a bird's nest when we made them in college. Make some toast, butter it, tear out a half dollar sized hole from the center, throw it in a pan, break an egg over the hole and cook. mmmmmm.....

Scrambled with grated cheese mixed in toward the end of cooking = tasty cheesy eggs Smile

And hard-boiled, thinly sliced, smothered with Salad Cream mayonnaise, between two slices of crusty white bread Thumbsup

I'm a scrambled or omelet guy, most days.

If I'm really feeling industrious and have the time in advance, a good quiche (with or without crust) is never a bad option. Sharp cheddar, good sausage & jalapeno makes an excellent "refrigerator pie."

Over medium, preferably after I've put on my rubber boots, slogged down to the hen house, collected the fresh morning eggs from under the ladies, trudged back to the mud room, exchanged my boots for loafers, and washed the poop off the eggs. (All of which I did many years ago during my hippie "self-sufficiency" days.) There is nothing like really fresh eggs.

I'm going to need a personal demonstration & taste test on this one! Sounds awesome!

I like my eggs most ways. The variations mentioned here are all good, as far as I'm concerned. Smile

OK, my favorite is a bit complicated, but something my dad grew up with and then passed on.

Take a large iron skillet, fry up a bunch of bacon; remove bacon and lay pumpernickel in the fat to fry; remove bread; throw in the eggs (sunny side up). Assemble: Fried bread, bacon, egg, then a slice of Swiss. Knife and fork required.

Simply Heaven.

BTW, I can also make a mean Eggs Benedict.

Did I mention that I like bacon.Biggrin
