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?

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.

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)

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.

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.

Ed Grubermann: How about if the thought of eating eggs makes you want to hurl?


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.

"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.

I like hard-boiled eggs, shelled by hand (none of those cute but silly egg cups). But I love deviled eggs even better. Mmmmm ... deviled eggs with real mayonnaise, lots of pepper and paprika.

Hot stuff! And yet old-fashioned and quaint.
 
2012-09-29 11:20:11 AM  
The thing about a boiled egg--apart from that it will take you forty minutes to get one in a restaurant--is that it is simple to make and doesn't make a mess. People who like them are propably not so much disorganized as unwilling to spend a lot of time cleaning and doing busy work. I expect "egg heads" prefer boiled eggs for this reason--less muss, less fuss.

A poached egg can be done in the microwave. They are great on english muffins and bagels--in short, done right they take even less time and make less mess than a boiled egg.

As for omelets, of course disciplined people love them--they are the only people who can make a good omelette. Omelettes have to be done just so or they are just scrambled eggs ruined.

It's like the difference between a true conservative and 99% of the idjits who call themselves conservative: the real conservative is disciplined, traditional, principled and responsible, thus very rare. Most of the real conservatives are moderates or liberals, a few libertarians who aren't nutters, and most purple staters who are not so much Republican or Democrat, Tory or Liberal or NDP, as too busy for political jibber-jabber. The people who call themselves conservatives are often nothing like.

Perhaps you can apply the egg test to them and sort the real conservatives out from the fellow-travellers and phonies.

My Father, by the way, can make an omelette. His brother, who was a military man for most of his life, makes a good omelette. I CAN make a moderately decent omellete but can't be bothered because of the washing up and the extra effort to do things just so.

The perfect omelete requires a dedicated pan (preferably copper-bottomed), just the right timing, the right temperature, the right amount of milk, and so forth. It's an operation and a skill that can take years to perfect. Not for me. Besides, I think the omelette, even when done well, is over-rated as a dish. In the same time and with the same effort, you can make a proper English breakfast with variety, colour, flavour and crispy bacon or sausage or ham or preferrably all three.

You've got to be careful when collecting them, though. Sunday mornings are best, when the Scots are sleeping off a bender and their nests are vulnerable.

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


Back when I was in my 20's, me and a roomie used to go to a local bar for drinks and scout out women we weren't going to be able to pick up. There was one regular that hung around pretty regularly, trying his damdest to pick up one night stands. He was successful for the most part, until word got around that he wasn't interested in anything more.

One night, we watched him use the "how do you like your eggs" line with a woman who hadn't been around that much (as far as we knew). She gave him a slightly creapy, almost stalkerish look and said "fertalized". I think he broke the sound barrier running from the place.

FTFA: Boiled egg-eaters run the greatest risk of getting divorced.

This is because they put the eggs in to boil (slowly so they don't crack) and forget about them, burning the eggs, and the pan both.
