  • How do you cook eggs?

    I use an omlette maker to cook my eggs, and I can do just about any type that could be made in a frying pan. The reason I choose to use an omlette maker, is not due to a fear of "fats" during the frying, but rather because I don't want to rely on refined/processed oils or butter. I've been wondering lately, is it worth revisiting the frying pan for cooking eggs, and if so, what fats are best? Can high quality, "virgin" oils be used in a high heat setting like a frying pan? How do you get the most out of your eggs, while using the most natural fats possible?

      Coconut oil and ghee are good choices. Bacon grease is a better one.

        I use butter in my frying pan. Makes the tastiest eggs I've ever had. (Butter is a natural fat, btw.)

          Lard/bacon grease/tallow/butter. If I could eat the yolks I would have runny yolks every day. EVERY DAY!!! As it stands, I just fry the whites and add some veg or taco seasoning and salsa.

              I burn the hell out of one side, messily flip it over and cook the yolk for about 10 seconds and sloppily transfer to a plate. Then sloppily transfer to my mouth.

              I cook with coconut oil due to the lack of polyunsaturated fats and my dairy intolerance. I think that coconut oil is the healthiest cooking oil to use, although butter seems to work well for those who truly aren't harmed by dairy. There are also lard and tallow which are great but I rarely find myself using them.

                Why can't you eat the yolks?

                And I scramble my eggs in butter and add cheese after. Or sometimes I fry it.

                    Sometimes I fry them in ghee, butter, or bacon grease sunny-side up style. Then sometimes I scramble them, and if I do, then I usually throw in some kind of cheese. Other times I hard-boil them the night before and eat them cold the next morning.

                      I've recently starting poaching them, Julia Child's fashion. The best that I have ever had!!! It takes some time, but so worth it!!!

                        Fried eggs are done in bacon grease, scrambled/omelets done in butter, unless I'm also making bacon, then I use the grease. I have yet to try coconut oil with eggs.

                          I buy 8 lb tubs of coconut oil on Amazon - both refined and virgin. I also use ghee but it doesn't last long in my house as I think it tastes like cake batter and eat it by the spoonful :|

                          Eggs are usually fried in bacon grease or hard-boiled and then deviled with baconnaise.wwwwwww

                              Mine are almost exclusively cooked in bacon grease right after my bacon is done and I've removed it from the pan. Only way to do eggs!
