@OldCatLady One of the reasons I love my bigger instant pot. Can hard cook 13 eggs in a very short time.
My husband eats too many of them. He can’t figure out why he wouldn’t sit down and have four eggs at one meal, but he can sit down with a plate with eight deviled eggs (four full eggs) and eat those with no problem.
There’s a breakfast place on the far side of the Twin Cities, Fat Nat’s Eggs. Used to eat there every other Saturday when I lived down there. Best eggs I ever had, no matter how I ordered, but they had butter-basted eggs that were perfect.
The sides make the difference. Must have a slab of ham, real grits (not that runny yuck), and a good, thin, slightly burnt on the bottom biscuit. And either apple butter or strawberry preserves to round it out.
I love eggs pretty much any way you can fix them, scrambled (which to me mean pieces that are still visibly yolk or white), over easy, basted, poached, omelets, or in things like quiche, cake, cookies etc. REALLY looking forward to the young chickens I am raising currently starting to lay…
My next attempt at something different will probably be:
We have chickens on our acreage so we have fresh eggs. As others have said, big difference!
My egg process is this; non stick pan, turn heat to 4 spray or drizzle olive oil. Grind black pepper over the oil. Start dicing green peppers, onions, mushrooms. Make sure oil is hot, dump diced veg in. Add 1/2t of minced garlic (good for you, THEY say). Break one egg and add an egg white in mixing bowl (I use a coffee cup or a Pyrex measuring cup) add 1/2t of soy sauce and whip egg. Pour egg over hot veg. Cover, reduce heat to low for 4 min. Uncover, flip in one piece, turn off burner, put a slice of bread in toaster (see Hayward Banks TOAST) when the toast is done, slide the vegeggs on plate with toast, enjoy! If I have diced ham or cooked sausage, or bacon, I add them at the “dump veg in” step.
Adding the soy sauce and covering on low lets it rise like a quiche.
@JnKL agree on the fresh eggs! i used to dislike “plain” eggs - always made my stomach feel vaguely unsettled after eating them. until i lived with someone whose family owned a farm. he brought back fresh eggs (among other goodies) and was like, just try them. game changer. we haven’t lived together for some time so it’s back to supermarket eggs for me, but i buy the more expensive organic free range ones. no, they’re certainly not AS good, but still make a huge difference to the regular ones i was eating all those years ago.
this question was asked recently but, over medium. (fried egg that has been flipped so the yolk is covered but runny, and the whites fully cooked.) too risky to order out tho, so only something i have at home or at my parents’.
i like other eggs too tho, hard or soft boiled, scrambled, omelette, poached. gotta have toast, too.
