  • Soaking up egg yolks

    What are some suggestions for things to accompany eggs with uncooked yolks (poached, lightly fried, etc.)?

    Fried egg over leftovers is always good; I've used potatoes and ground beef. What are some other things that lend themselves well to soaking up that delicious yolk?

    Fried eggs on rice is pretty good, especially when the yolk is still runny. It's quite common in Thai food.

    I also like runny eggs on salads. Soft boiled works best, kind of like a lush, warm salad dressing. If you havent tried it yet, give it a go. Delish.

        Bacon is great for dipping in egg yolk! I also like steak with runny egg yolk.

          Unless there is salad, steak or burger involved.
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                Broccoli and/or bacon. My two favourites!

                  Oooh, I like the salad idea. I always soft boil my eggs instead of hard boiling (btw, steamer basket is awesome for this).

                  All good suggestions, even plate licking. :P

                        Sweet potatoes (baked first, then) browned in the pan between cooking the bacon and the eggs.

                          When I have fried eggs, I often eat all the whites first, carefully trimming it away from the yolk. Then I gently scoop the yolk up with my fork and pop it into my mouth whole. That way I don't risk losing a single precious drop of gooey nutritious goodnes!

                            Broccoli works great, squash too.

                            My most favorite bkfast, brown onions, red peppers, broc & squash in ghee,
                            Break 2 eggs over, lid on pan maybe 2 mins, org pepper, himalayan sea salt.
                            Will keep u so satisfied with no hunger pains for at least 5 hrs.
                            I eat this nearly every morning, 3 oz red grapefruit juice, multivitamin.

                              These are great ideas. I started just cooking them hard, since I wasnt sopping it up with toast anymore. And since I was counting every calorie, (yes I know, dont count but I do, I still need to) I didnt want to waste any so I thought I could get more mileage out of hard yolks
