I prefer the hot chick at the bar to have unfertilized eggs as well.

How about if the thought of eating eggs makes you want to hurl? The only way I can stand eggs is scrambled and buried under a mountain of ketchup after being flat-broke and living off of nothing but Quaker Oats and sugar for a month.

I would eat the carton before the eggs

I'm allergic to eggs and pretty much vegan, so, the only way I like eggs is when the chicken is still layin' 'em!

According to the Daily Mail's rigorous scientific analysis, that means that you are a genocidal psychopath with horrid personal hygiene and tendencies toward animal necrophilia.

Yup. I would love to like eggs since they're cheap, nutritionally dense, and available everywhere here. But no matter how much I try, I cannot like eggs.

What if you like them different ways on different days? If I have cheesy grits, I'll top 'em with a poached egg. Other times I will use leftover meat and veggies and make a breakfast scramble. Sometimes I'll make huevos rancheros. (Fried eggs in a cooked red salsa and corn tortillas). Does this mean I'm an outgoing but guarded sex fiend or that I just like variety in my egg bearing breakfast foods?

Too lazy to make toast and a fried egg in separate cooking processes?

A useless article that wasted money which could have been spent on actual science. Interviewing a thousand people about how they eat eggs and then desperately trying to come up with something interesting to tell a news website does not prove the secret inner workings of the human mind.

I'm curious. Do you know what in eggs you are allergic to? I mean, they're basically just protein.

The colour of the shell is mainly determined by the breed of chicken. I don't really care about the colour of the shell, but when I switched to free range I noticed they got thicker and the yolks are brighter.

Eggs in the U.S. are another product ruined by Big AG. Chickens running around and eating what they find and living like they're supposed to lay eggs. The egg is the offspring, of course, and the yolk is the food supply for the chick. Like mothers in other species, some are better than others. So free range chickens produce eggs that vary. Most of the yolks are thick, dark yellow, and tasty. Most of the egg whites are thicker and, if they have enough calcium in their diet, the shells are thicker. Some hens, however, lay much more anemic eggs.

In our quality conscious society, we have trained consumers that variability equals lack of quality. So, if a consumer cracks two eggs in the frying pan and they don't look exactly the same, he's convinced that one of them is bad. But he doesn't know which one. So he'll throw both of them out. The way egg producers have overcome that is to reduce all of the laying hens in the big battery cage outfits to the lowest common denominator. In other words, all the hens are kept on a virtual starvation diet that is the bare minimum to keep them producing eggs but to keep all of the eggs uniformly anemic - runny whites; pale yellow, thin yolks, shells just sufficient to not break during the automated handling and packing.

Consumers who enjoy free-range eggs need to know that the variability exists and that there is nothing wrong with that.

This, of course, has no bearing on how you like your eggs prepared and what that says about you. It does indicate that, if you enjoy free-range eggs, you're probably better educated about eggs. Oh, and what the hell, it also says you're more open to diversity. (yeah, I made that last part up)

BronyMedic: Nice to see the Daily Fail isn't above trying to pass off blatent attempts at food marketing as legitimate news articles.


Yup.

I was all geared up to see which research journal had published this, so I could go find it for my files. From the headline I was expecting a fun, quirky little personality study (possibly using the Five Factor Model) about an interesting and unexpected way that personality traits are reflected in everyday behavior (see Sam Gosling's research on personality and music preference, for example). Instead I got a message from the Egg Council.

Don't make angry, Daily Mail. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Like this. Most restaurants serve this with the eggs on the side and I have to do the over-easy transplant to get them on top of the hash where they belong. Harder than it sounds without breaking the yolk in transit.

What does it mean if I like eggs prepared in a variety of ways depending on the accompanying foods and method of presentation? I like eggs bennedict (poached), I like over medium (whites cooked, yolk liquid) if I have toast or hashbrowns to soak up the yolk. I like scrambled if I don't have those things.

Plain eggs are disgusting sulfurous abortions, a quality that carries over to their texture no matter how they are cooked.

The whites are the really nasty part which means that something made from just the yolks, like a hollandaise sauce with plenty of lemon juice to mask the residual eggynes, can be enjoyable.

Odd... I thought he was referring to the egg cup.

The idea of eating a boiled egg with running yolk makes me want to barf. Blech!

I actually overheard this from the next booth in a diner one morning, not long ago:

"I'd like to order your breakfast special, with two eggs any style"

"Yes, ma'am... and how would you like the eggs?"

"huh?"
 
2012-09-29 11:00:44 AM
It depends. On mornings I have a lot of time, omelettes. In the afternoon, hard boiled. When I make bacon, fried in the leftover bacon grease. I don't usually make scrambled, but when I buy fast food cooked eggs, they are scrambled.
 
2012-09-29 11:04:32 AM
FTA: Daily Mail readers were shown to prefer scrambled eggs.

To match their brains.

Hot people like their eggs fried.
