    Another egg lover here!

    I like them almost every which way but I'm picky about good preparation. For example, if you scramble eggs for me and get them AT ALL browned - just give 'em to the dogs - they're ruined for me.

    Also, I don't like the little white thingie - the chalaza (shudder!) I like my sunny side up eggies MEDIUM - not too runny, not too dry. I also like them crisped by cooking them in a bunch of butter or in bacon fat and spooning that yummy hot fat over the egg as it cooks.

    You see - that's why I prefer to cook my eggs myself, heh-heh...

    Currently my favorite way to have them is omelets Julia Child's French style -- get a good heavy stainless-clad copper pan nice and hot, put a glob of butter (about an inch-wide slice) in it, let it melt and start to bubble. Swirl it around the pan. Use a ladle to put in a scoop of room-temp whisked eggs (I add a dollop of heavy cream). When the egg starts congealing, start shaking the pan back and forth (won't work on a glass-top range), until you see the eggs starting to bubble in the middle from air getting underneath. The eggs are "floating" on the butter, so they won't stick to the pan if done properly.

    Tip the pan and use a spatula to get uncooked egg from the middle to the sides and underneath. Listen up - this is serious cuisine, LOL! Any omelet fillings you want and have prepared and ready - throw a handful in the middle now. Then slide the egg to the edge of the pan and give your wrist a flick to flip that sucker, folded, onto your plate. Voila! These are delicious plain and take a few fast minutes to cook.

    For fillings I like to pre-saute chopped 'shrooms or fresh spinach. These aren't the over-filled, American-type omelets though - just a little filling and mostly just plain egg.

    There's a video from the 60s of Child on YouTube making these omelets. Worth a look. You'll never think of omelets the same way again.

      Avocado is so good in omelets.

          I like them in a frittata.

          I saute some veggies, add the eggs and briefly stir, then pop under the broiler until lightly browned.

              My favorite is the omelette/fried egg combo I came up with: make a two egg omelette (preferably w/ Herbs de Provence) as usual, but save one of the yolks. Just after you've flipped over the first side, pop the egg yolk on top. When the second side has finished, the yolk will have 'cooked through' enough to make it a sunny-side up fried egg yolk on top of omelette- best of both worlds! You're welcome!

                of course this is more like a 'snack' but it does the trick for me! some bright green olives, (optional) walnuts and tahini sauce... perfect 7-minute egg split and hit with a dash of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. so... damn... good.

                  Scrambled (with daiya once a week as a treat to myself ) with a load of hot sauce. What I throw in there usually varies, and since I eat a half dozen eggs every morning there's a lot of room for extra stuff. But I almost always have chopped white mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado, and some chopped up beef leftover from the night before.

                        Have you ever tried German leberkaese? I used to love that stuff. It's a chopped loaf texturally somewhat similar to Spam (though not made from the garbage that Spam is). Cook a slice of it in butter, and top with eggs cooked to order (sometimes I like to cook diced onions with it also) and it is EXCELLENT.

                          over medium cooked in bacon grease!

                          People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                            So now I mostly go scrambled (I add some heavy cream in there too for more fluffiness), with salsa and sharp cheddar (um, no, I have not given up dairy. heheh)
                            Try some Rivven bread. It really soaks up the yolk well.

                                Over-easy, on top of some breakfast potatoes, with a side of bacon and some hot-sauce on top.
