    I have these small little tapas frying pans - I use them to make personal sized fritatas - yum! Better than quiche or an omelet. I'll either do a single egg or one egg and another egg white, add cheese (asiago or parmesian) salt, pepper, and some combination of other spices/herbs, meat, crab, smoked salmon, onions, garlic, spinach, etc.

    Oh man, eggs? I'm not a fan. Scrambled with fresh pepper they're ok every now and then, but something about them just makes me queasy.

    I think there's too much emphasis on eggs as breakfast food. Eggs in French toast, eggs by themselves, eggs in omelets ... no thanks!

    Eggs are nasty. The texture is bad and the flavor is worse.

    Poached or scrambled if I'm in a hurry - with black pepper and tabasco sauce.

    I love eggs.

    I usually like them scrambled. With nothing else. Just the egg. I enjoy the occasional assorted cheese/bacon omelettes. I LOVE those damn devil eggs!

    Eggs are truly wonderful. Scrambled, poached, hard boiled, sunny side up, over easy...all good.

    On toast, off toast. In a sandwich. Egg salad sandwiches. Eggs can do it all. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Most definitely Eggs Benedict...

    Deviled eggs are also great, and I like occasional scrambled eggs and bacon on an English muffin.

    However...the after effect can sometimes be nasty... :eek:

    Gotta love Eggs Benedict. I also love some over easy eggs drenched in Tabasco with some corned beef hash and potatos. Yum! I also find I prefer having breakfas foods like eggs at night, as opposed to actual breakfast time.

    Omlette (Ham, cheese, tomato, broccoli: choose 1 to 4)
    scrambled with cheese and celery salt
    deviled

    I like other types as well, but those are the favs.

    I love eggs, though I don't eat them often. A few times a month at most.

    Just curious, but I don't know anything about eggs. I avoided eating eggs for 11 years, and now I can only eat eggs if they don't taste too "egg-y", like McDonald's Sausage Egg McMuffin. :p

    Anyway, what's a poached egg, eggs benedict? Oh, and what's the difference between Sunny Side Up and "Over-easy"??

    Here's a short run-down of some of the basic egg types (for people like Abstract)

    - Poached Eggs (my favorite) are eggs that are (often) cooked in a special pan in individual small cups. The cups are set partially into water, that is boiled in the pan, and the eggs are cooked by the heat of the boiling water. They can also be made in a frying pan, by carefully cracking the eggs into water with a little vinegar in it. The eggs come out in little patty-like shapes, with a soft-ish yolk. Best with toast. :D

    - Over Easy are eggs that are cracked into a frying pan, cooked, and then gently turned over so as not to break the yolk. Both sides are cooked about evenly.

    - Sunny Side Up are eggs that are like over easy, but they aren't turned over. They are simply cracked into the skillet and cooked. The yolk is usually a little runny.

    - Benedict are poached eggs, on buttered english muffins, with canadian bacon, topped with hollandaise sauce. :)

    - Scrambled Eggs (you better know what these are!) are eggs that are beaten to make the yolk and whites mix, and, often, mixed with some milk. Often served with tomatoes, cheese, broccoli, or anything else you want.

    - Quiches, Fritatas, and Omelettes are too hard to make.
