Are eggs good for you?

Yes! Eggs are good for you yolk and all. But of course people are taking it too far. Everything has an egg on or in it. Watch any episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and you will see any number of dishes with an egg in there somewhere. You know what goes good with eggs? Bacon, that’s it!

How do I cook my eggs? Glad you asked.

Fried

Fry a few strips of bacon over medium heat, remove bacon, leave grease, turn off heat let cool down for a minute or so. Add 2 eggs, use either kosher salt, black and cayenne pepper (Or Tony‘s). Once the egg white is not clear, gently flip over, turn off the heat and cook for another 2 minutes, this won’t overcook and still give you a nice warm runny yolk.

Scrambled

Whisk 3 eggs with a dash of heavy cream and water in a large cup, add to a medium heat skillet with melted clarified butter or bacon fat. Move around the pan and make your chunks big or small, just don’t let it stick. Or don’t move it at all and have an omelette.

Boiled

Put a dozen eggs in a pot in one layer, add 1/4 tsp baking soda, cover with 2 inches of tap water. Bring to rolling boil and cook for about 2 minutes. Cover and remove from heat and let stand for 12 minutes. Drain off hot water and fill pot with cold tap water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Crack each end of the egg, they should be super easy to peel. Cut in half and add a dash of the previously mentioned seasonings.

Poached, no thanks
