    Well, today I learned to make a proper fried egg. I've always used butter/margarine. From now on, lots of oil. Even spooning it atop the egg. Interesting. I assumed the oil is vegetable, but she mentioned olive. Wouldn't EVOO provide too strong of a flavor? Time to experiment. Also, what's the pan temperature? I use an infrared temp gauge to control heat.
    I learned to make omelettes from Jacques Pepin. Love ya, Miss Carla, but I'm going with the French guy.

    I want so badly to like runny scrambled eggs and omelets... but I will NEVER understand how anyone likes eggs that spectacularly under-cooked. I know it's the "right" way to do it, but if you're beating eggs they should be COOKED. "Dog drool"????? Neither the name, the texture, nor the presentation are in any way appetizing.

    and finally my fav recipe of all eggs:
    baking an egg
    I'm not crazy, it tastes delicious
    recipe: u crack 1 or more eggs into a bowl(i do two)
    add seasoning(salt, pepper, Italian seasoning)
    bake until the top is completely cooked and has like little crusts on the edges
    poke through the surface and see if the yolk is still runny by the white is completely done.

    I have the luxury of fresh eggs from my lovely girls, so when i poach an egg I use an egg that's been laid that day (tbh i don't chill my eggs so they stay good for poaching for a lot longer). I just crack it into a mug, and gently add it to well salted rapidly boiling water until the white is firm and the yoke is still soft. I also NEVER use cold eggs, every time I've used a cold egg it's not worked.

    So I know this sounds super weird, but if you're having trouble cooking the egg white without overcooking the yolk, gently blowtorch the white when you think the yolk is done.

    TRASHoftheTITANS Vor 27 Tage

    I have to disagree with her on the poached eggs. I'd personally say yes to vinegar and no to a vortex. Adding a splash of vinegar is the only method I trust of preventing the egg white from splaying out and breaking up in the water, which is something I find a vortex just exacerbates. And if your egg comes out tasting vinegary, you've added way too much. You only need a very small amount for it to work, and if you drain and dry the egg properly, it shouldn't take on the flavour at all

    First of all I see you cannot be bothered to answer the comments? I like eggs which are just cooked or soft yolks. I never cook anything without a little Salt and Pepper. Yes to Vinegar and Vortex, I like the slight Vinegar taste that is why I add it? I normally fry eggs when making fried egg sandwiches? Just cooked Scrambled eggs are magic I cook mine in the Microwave as I hate cleaning the sauce Pan afterwards. Omelettes I will put anything in. You call yourself a cook yet it took you 4 attempts to cook a Poached egg? You need more practice. When I was in the Army one chef would par cook about 40 poached eggs then put them into iced water then as ordered he added the required amount into a frying pan of boiling water, This reheated them and finished off the cooking without splitting the egg?

Thanks for sharing the tip on how to crack an egg on a flat surface rather than on the corner of a skillet or other surface. That is one habit I have gotten into over the years and know that I need to stop that and have been trying to stop it. Thanks so much for these tips and I hope you all have a Blessed week next week.

      Fair enough, however if restaurant would serve burned eggs that’s already health risk for the consumer. Therefor professional way of cooking it wouldn’t be what’s shown in the video. It is a preference but not a restaurant worthy recipe

    You can make fried eggs without the oil if you just put a little water in the pan and put the lid on it, this way the eggwhite will also cook because of the steam.

    I make a ‘fake poached egg’ in a pan with a nonstick pan every morning - usually on half a bagel with uncooked baby spinach and tomatoes. You lightly grease the pan (if it’s not nonstick), grab a paper towel, rub the oil around the pan (coating it completely) and drop an egg in there (with a lid over it so it steams). You cook it on medium low heat for two minutes, salt and pepper it, and flip it. You then turn it to very low heat for 3 more minutes (flipping every minute), so this way it cooks with whites and yolk evenly (the yolk will taste like a hard boiled egg). Take it out and ta daa! A soft, not crunchy, healthy fake poached egg :)
