With so many egg options, how are you supposed to know which ones you like best, how to make them, or (at the very least) what to order at your favorite breakfast joint? We have put together a guide to all things egg so that you can enjoy your protein packed, make-it-or-break-it breakfast essential at any time of the day.
A hard boiled egg isn’t just necessary for Easter Deviled Eggs (though delicious), you can enjoy them by themselves for breakfast, crushed in a salad, or in a sandwich. A hard boiled egg is cooked in a rolling boil in its shell to create a fully cooked (hard) yolk.
Scrambled eggs, though made in a variety of ways, are the most beloved of all the egg cooking varieties. To make the perfect scrambled eggs, heat a pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tbs. of butter per egg and continually mix the mixture until you have reached a soft scramble. Add a splash of milk and cheese or seasoning, mix and serve.
Sunny Side Up
Say good morning to the sun with a sunny side up egg. In our opinion, sunny side up eggs are best paired with cubed potatoes or over toast so that the yolk can run and combine all of the breakfast flavors.
Over easy eggs are essential a sunny side up turned upside down. These are great to enjoy on burgers or really anything that requires the buttery taste of the egg white and the runny goodness of the yolk. Note: do be sure to use a non-stick pan. The flip can be extremely tricky.
A poached egg is often served in the most eggtastic way with a Hollandaise sauce. To create egg-filled dish, start with the poached egg. bring 4-5 inches of water to a simmer, add a dash of vinegar, and swirl the water just before adding the egg. Cook the egg for 8-10 minutes until the white have solidified and the yolk is still runny. In the meantime, make the Hollandaise sauce by whisking the yolks, lemon juice and water over very low heat. Then add butter slowly until sauce has come together. Drizzle the Hollandaise sauce over your perfectly poached eggs for a breakfast of champions.
