Eggs are, of course, the greatest food on earth. But which type of cooking produces The Daddy?

I'm going for a boiled egg. You just can't beat its minimalist simplicity, and it's great for dipping toasty soldiers in.

protein

Fried. You can't beat a bowl of noodles with a fried egg on top.

I guess it'll have to be fried then...:p

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's just a treacherous splitter from the Fried faction. As such, it is damned as a heretic.

MOBIUS

Hah, but the easy over is so much more sophisticated - it is the Homo Sapiens to your Cro Magnon of fried eggs!

Poached (runny)with asparagus and hollandaise

If it's boiled or fried it has ro be runny. Easy over makes the yolk all solid and powdery.

MOBIUS
26-06-2005, 11:58:01
Obviously you haven't had one when it's done properly - the whole point of easy over is to lock in the runnyness of the yolk...:)

MOBIUS
26-06-2005, 11:58:30
Omelettes are very versatile too!

protein
26-06-2005, 12:24:01
Lock it in? Why does it need locking in? It means it's far less runny.

I don't know. This country. You people. etc.

Has to be poached. Not as greasy as frying and more bacon friendly than a boiled egg.

MOBIUS
26-06-2005, 12:35:27
Surely the whole point of bacon and eggs is that it's supposed to be greasy...:D

Slighty runny fried egg with a pinch of salt in a sandwich. Scrambled just plain sucks. Poached is nice, as zmama said, with hollandaise.

Scrambled. With maybe some cheese. Maybe some tomato. Maybe some ham/bacon. Maybe some herbs. :love:

Culiniary barbarians! Although if I have to go with the posted options, definitely poached.

Fried, but with the yolk pierced and semi-mixed with the white.

Oh, yes. How often have we sailed that boat?

You get in from the pub. It's 2 AM. You want eggs. You think "I know- I'll whip up a quick souffle!"

If the answer comes to more than "never", you are technically no longer human.

The scotch egg is just a boiled heretic.

The trouble with boiled is that you have to take the shell of for yourself, and avoid getting bits into the egg. (Unless of course you're on a picnic or something so someone's already done it for you.)

Talking of variations, pickled eggs can be good too.

Balls. When all is said and done, it's still a boiled egg. I was no more prepared to include Scotch Eggs than I was poached eggs on a muffin as opposed to wholemeal toast.

I will not allow the non-eggy trappings detract from the purity of the debate, and anyone who does is a whore with a scabby minge.

Cruddy

Not even a raw option. Who cooks caviar?

I'd go with scrambled especially if you add in a dash of whole milk to make them fluffier and they have been topped with cheese, pepper, and a bit of garlic salt.

Huevos Rancheros are good, especially with flaming hot salsa & a champagne mimosa to wash it down. In the end I have to give the nod to scrambled eggs since my mom made them all the time when I was growing up.

on the bright side of things, studies have had trouble proving eggs raise a person's cholesterol levels. Remember the big scare in the 80's (following the craze that raw eggs were good for you) that eggs would kill you?

It's good I can eat eggs without guilt again.
