How do you like your eggs?

  1. I like them boiled and in a bowl with soy sauce. I also like them scrambled and slightly under cooked so they're still wet.
  2. I hate sunny side up with a passion, I think it stems from a friends mum cooking me one many years ago and the yolk being cold. My own mum always briefly turned the egg so that the yolk would cook on top but still be runny, its what you get used to I guess. This does mean that I have to stipulate this whenever I eat fried egg anywhere else so sometimes I just ask for scrambled.

    Other than that I will eat egg any way it comes.
  3. Poached is my favourite, sprinkled with black pepper. Tbh I like eggs anyway but poached is always the better variation for me.
  4. I also prefer hard boiled, never tried soy sauce though. What's your recipe? Someone taught me 4 minutes at boil then, 4 minutes just sitting in the hot water.
  5. Fried on both sides, slightly runny.
  6. I suck at boiling eggs. I bought this microwave egg cooker thing and it's even easier than boiling a pot of water.


    After they are cooked I shell them and put them in a bowl. Then I put a little Aloha Soy Sauce in the bowl and eat. It's the only soy sauce I ever use. I prefer the lower salt version.

  7. Scrambled would be my least favorite. Hard boiled tends to be what I eat the most these days, but I probably still prefer sunny side up if I had to pick. Chopped hard boiled with wheat pasta, broccoli, mushrooms, olive oil, pesto sauce and parmesan cheese is a good one.
  8. Good old egg mayonnaise in a sandwich with some super crispy streaky bacon is good. If you do it whilst the eggs are still warm it is even better.

    I don't really do poached eggs, far too much faff and if I am boiling its normally just 3 minutes for the wife who lives a dippy egg and soldiers.
  9. Soy sauce and some sesame oil is how I have mine if I have them like that. Usually fried on both sides with runny yolk and a dash of soy at the end for breakfast.

    How do you boil water? You're not like an American that boils it in a saucepan/microwave, are you?
  10. I boil it on the stove in a frying pan.
