    I've been vegan for quite a while but have recently gone back to eating eggs due to depression, and because I just frickin' love them.

    I know how gross they are when you really think about it, but... goddamn. I could eat them every day, I'm afraid.

    I like mine over easy well (no runny eggs in my house!:goon:) with hot sauce and black pepper on cinnamon raisin toast. Organic, vegetarian-fed, free-range local eggs. Ezekiel 4:9 cinnamon raisin bread. Fresh pepper. Oil, not butter.

    Although I do like to scramble 'em with tons of mushrooms and peppers and spinach and herbs too!

    You?

    I like over easy, scrambled, and poached, in that order. I'm not very good at frying eggs though so I tend to poach when I want the yolk completely runny.

    scrambled, but not beforehand. so I break them into the pan like baked eggs, then after throwing away the scales I start scrambling, so the white and yellow are not evenly distributed/mixed into lightyellow.
    when finished I put it in a bowl, add some salt, add black pepper(generously), and eat with a spoon.

    but sometimes I don't scramble them, but add some cheese and eat it on bread. or I add bacon too. or I add bacon, cheese, a deepfreezehamburger, fry the bread in the pan to make it crispy and add some lettuce(and/or maybe tomato, bell pepper or cucumber), and some ketchup.

    the first is breakfast, the 2nd is coming-home-at-night-food

    I've been having eggs a lot lately, since I often go to the supermarket between 6 and 8(it closes at 8) to get stuff for dinner, but then there isn't any bread left. and then I wake up at 12-2, and I'm too lazy to go to the supermarket(untill later, when the bread is gone again).

    You're not messing around when it comes to your eggs!

    I guess the question also is... what cheese is best for eggs?

    I always liked just a little bit of chevre in mine back in the day...

    Gordon Ramsay style is absolutely my favorite.

    I can't eat overcooked eggs.

    edit:
    Definitely don't need cheese with this recipe. Just butter & creme fraiche

    Oh man I had some corned beef hash, on a bed of hash browns, with two over easy eggs on top with lots of black pepper :drool: so delicious I am getting a chubby just thinking about it.

    But to the topic at hand I love me some eggs and eat them all different kinds of ways almost indiscriminately over easy, scrambled, cooked well done, omelets, hard boiled for sandwiches, etc poached probably being my least favorite. I make lazy breakfast burritos almost every weekend though. A toaster hash brown, fried lunch meat, and cheesy scrambled eggs on a tortilla flame warmed on a gas burner is ghetto breakfast burrito heaven. Although my recipe sounds about the polar opposite of the unprocessed, organic, breakfast above, I think all I am missing is some spam :lol:

    basically the only different cheeses I know are the different ages, and only the dutch names. I prefer 'jong-belegen' , since young cheese melts better, so even if the block of cheese is already in the fridge for a while it still melts, but the youngest variety('jong') lacks taste. jong-belegen has slightly more taste while still remaining meltable and slicable.

    the only really different kinds of cheeses I know are brie and camembert, but I don't think those would do well with cooking. and monchou, wich I only use in pies.

    there is also a farmer in my old hometown who sells homemade cheeses with different herbs in them, but when I used that I usually just ate it like that(or on bread, but not melted)

    God some corned beef hash sounds amazing. Haven't had that in years!

    Can't trust a man who has never enjoyed a good plate of corned beef hash... :nope:

    Love, love, love my eggs on the gooey side of sunny side up. And on toast to soak up all that mucusy goodness.

    Fried in OO, sometimes with sautéed ABVs if it's going to be one of those days. Definitely some freshly course-ground black pepper and a little salt. Usually tobascco or shriracha.

    It doesn't get better than that. I could eat every day.

    Denver omelette for me. I once drove across the US (basically on a dare) and I had a Denver omelette in over a dozen different states. One thing I learned is that some places don't put cheese in a Denver omelette unless you ask (crazy, I know). Also, the only state that didn't have Denver omelettes was Colorado. They called it a "western" omelette instead. :mental:

    :peace:

    I like eggs every way you can make them... but my favorite way is coddled eggs. I had found one of these coddlers for two eggs during a visit to Savannah a few years ago. Had a hell of a time getting through security. They thought it was a hand grenade... :lol:

    with bacon will be fine. :)

    Leaving the Vegan world was essential to my health, @EveryDayAmnesiac - I'd spent over seven years there, and the depletion of many micro-nutrients, as well as skewing my macros, messed with all kinds of things.

    Eggs is a great way to get some balance back. I have friends with backyard hens, and those eggs, nourished by sunshine, grass, lots of bugs, leftovers, and dust baths, were absolutely the best in the world. I can't always get them, so when I can't, it's cage-free/pastured chicken eggs whenever I can.

    When you are ready, drop by. I'll show you the wonders of Paleo/Primal living (but, relaxed style. We have no hard rules in this house!).

    Any egg not runny is good with me. My all time favorite, a variant of poached. Instead of on toast I use bread hand ripped into pieces in a bowl then add eggs and mix really well to almost blend it together add salt pepper, looks kinda nasty but the boy and I can take down damn near a whole loaf and a dozen eggs :D

    my parents have chickens, wich means in summer so many eggs that they sell them. so when I stil lived with my parents, I always had eggs from our own chickens, wich are free to roam all over the patch the goats are in, so they have a pretty big foragingrange(compared to most backyardchickens).
    one clear difference I notice between those eggs and storebought eggs is that the yolk/eggyellow is almost orange in the freerange-at home-eggs, while storebought eggs have a light/faint yellow yolk.
    and the backyardeggs sometimes have a little blood running trough or it is purple/greeenish at the edge of the yolk and white(after cooking, not with baked eggs)
