@Mehrocco_Mole hated “plain” eggs for a long time until i lived with someone whose parents have a farm and he brought back farm fresh eggs. mind blown. to this day it’s one of the few things i spend extra $$$ on at the store because i truly can taste the difference. (even the pricey storebought eggs aren’t AS good as the straight off the farm ones but they’re pretty close, and miles away from the generic store brand.)
Fried. But no one ever seems to know what that means. Every waitress I’ve encountered ever has looked at me like I ordered a hairball when I say fried egg. Like the kind you’d put in a sandwich. So I end up with scrambled, because it’s a word they know. And they’re always Snoggy. No matter how many times I say “well done, no snot.” Ewww. Just order pancakes.
@katbyter@unksol here in California, they are known as “sauteed”. Really!
Well, in some places. You can get real fried eggs (sunny side up, broken yolk, over easy, over hard, lidded) just up the road at Alice’s.
@katbyter i’m with you… after much trying to describe what i wanted, one waiter finally said “oh, you want it ‘over hard’ then”. Since then that’s what i say and everyone seems to get it. It only took me about 10 years. Try that next time.
@MarkDaSpark It isn’t really that hard to flip an egg… Just get a thin spatula and use a big enough pan. Basting seems like more work - boiling water, finding a lid, timing it right… Just flip the damn egg, I say!
@jester747 Seriously though, my daughter makes some type of Japanese omelette in a small square pan where she cooks a thin layer then rolls it onto itself adding more egg to the pan behind it, all the while adding fillings and things… oh my, is that stuff good! She also does French scrambled which I like a lot too.
Scrambled, with everything in them. Well, peppers, onions, garlic, cracked black pepper, ‘shrooms, Penzy spices, ham chunks or bacon. Covered with melted cheese and wrapped in a jalapeño wrap like a burrito.
@therealjrn idk what a parrots dietary requirements are but sounds like @Felton10 takes excellent care of his.
Not so much the poacher which I assume is a joke. Chickens can get in the habit of eating raw eggs. If you don’t get to them fast enough. So. You know. Birds are ravenous dinosaurs. Some are just cute/manageable
@therealjrn@unksol He loves the yoke-not so much the white part. But with a few exceptions (avacodo being the major one), he can eat most anything (and does). Some birds can’t but the vet said it was ok and his weight is checked during his yearly checkup and he is not overweight. He particularly likes hardshell blue crab claws. He also has somewhat of a sweet tooth for any dessert with a fruit filling. So not too bad being a bird in our house. Only problem is that we got him when we were 50 and who looks ahead or thought ahead to about the bird living 40 to 60 years. Luckily my son said he would take him.
