What is your favorite way to eat eggs?

There are a million ways to eat eggs (well, not a million, but quite a few…). Which way is your favorite?

The website EatThis,NotThat! created a map showing the most popular way to eat an egg in all 50 states. Omelets were the most popular, ranking the highest in 27 states. You can take a peek at that map here, it’s fun to look at.

In our poll below you can choose up to two options. So tell us your two favorite ways to eat eggs! And while you’re doing that, we’re going to go make breakfast…

I don’t eat eggs everyday although I love ’em, generally I have mine basted easy (sunny side up with the whites fully cooked), when I go into a restaurant and order them that way, usally the waiter/waitress comes back and tells me the cook said they use water to baste them, then I change to over easy. I never did like poached eggs or soft boiled eggs. Other than that an omelette, deviled, a fritata, or any other way is OK. Don’t really understand why just never liked soft boiled or poached eggs.

Let’s see, over easy, home fries, wiggly bacon or a few slices of fried Spam, wheat toast, OJ and a cup of coffee. Nothing like eggs. Even Egg Beaters for an omelette is good.

Egg Whites ONLY! Maybe once a month or so with friends at breakfast, (pre-Covid). Now only eggs are in cookies or cakes.

I answered “other”. I don’t eat eggs. I guess I’m now considered one of those crazy people who eats to live instead of living to eat.

Must be nice to be able to be belligerent about food, when others have medical conditions where they can eat only certain foods or for various other reasons.

Bring on the bacon.

I answered other. I like mine sunny side up fried or poached.

I answered “other”.

• Spray a microwave safe bowl with PAM

• Aggressively whip 3 eggs in the bowl with a tsp of vinegar (or hot sauce) and a tsp of half & half–both help make the eggs tender. Incorporate as much air as possible.

• Microwave for 2min 15 seconds with a paper plate on top. (Occasionally they explode.)

• Add 2 Tbl of Piemento Cheese Spread on top and enjoy. (Piemento Cheese Spread is available at any grocery store in the NC area and widely in the SE.)

The texture of the eggs is closer to a soufflé than an omelet.

Creme brulee (1-2 per 4oz serving), angel food cake (dozen whites per cake), fried egg sandwich (2-3 per sandwich)

99.9% of the time I eat my eggs with my mouth, now I like omelettes, but anymore leave out the hot peppers. Lol

When eating out and the waitress/waiter ask me how I want the eggs done, I always say, “Australian.” It is amazing how little geography people know today.

Nothing more than a scrambled egg folded while cooking instead of scrambling. I think a little more manageable while eating. I think it’s more culinary than geography. I think everyone knows about Australia it’s when you add the word egg with it it becomes culinary. So let’s not be to hasty in judging others because one will eventually trip and fall on their own sword.

First, I’m not criticizing anyone who eats eggs. I used to enjoy a 3-egg omelette with green onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, green chili and ham, or a wonderful breakfast burrito., until I had a Coronary Calcium Scan and my numbers were in the upper Extreme category (just below what they called ‘Oh, God). That was a little over three years ago. 18 months later, after changing my diet, a second scan showed my numbers had dropped 20% – not in the ‘good’ range, but much better. My next scan should/will be much better. Plus I’ve dropped close to 50 lbs and look and feel much younger than my almost 70 years. Again, not criticizing anyone, just my story.

I’m with you Wayne. After serving 20 years with uncle Sam and the morning stops to the chow hall for eggs, bacon and good ole SOS it caught up with me by 50. Yup heart attack and 99% blockage. So eating habits change. So egg beaters 75% of the time with 25% being a cherished treat of real eggs. Hope all gets better for you.
