Love eggs? Here are four ways to cook them any time of the day
This egg favorite can be made with whole eggs or just the whites. To start, crack the eggs into a bowl and mix until they combine together. Don't overdo it. Heat up an egg pan and treat with olive oil, butter or cooking spray. Make sure you get the sides. When it's hot enough, pour the eggs into the pan and allow to cook over a medium heat. As they firm, lift the sides to let the uncooked egg flow underneath -- this will cook it faster. Once the bottom is light brown, add the ingredients you'd like on top of the eggs. Do not mix. Fold the egg over and serve.
Heat the egg pan and lightly treat with olive oil, butter or cooking spray. Crack the egg(s) you plan to cook into a bowl being careful not to break the yolk. Once the pan is hot enough, pour the eggs carefully into the pan. Let them cook until lightly brown on the bottom side, then flip. You can leave it cook for a bit if you like the yolk to be a little firm. For runnier yolk, however, remove more quickly. Serve with virtually any side item such as steak, quinoa, potatoes, vegetables, etc. Or you can serve on top of bread or a toasted english muffin.
In a medium sized sauce pan, boil water. While you're waiting, crack the number of eggs you'd like onto a plate being cautious not to break the yolk. Once the water comes to a boil, add a tiny bit of vinegar. It'll help keep the eggs firm. Reduce the heat to a simmer. You don't want to add the eggs to water that's boiling. Add the eggs carefully. Cook until they're the firmness you'd like. Generally, you'll be able to tell once the egg is white and relatively firm. Serve alone, with bread, or with eggs benedict or other dish.
Scrambled eggs can be made with whole eggs or just the whites. Start by cracking the eggs into a bowl and whisking them for about two minutes, until they're frothy. Don't overdo it! Let them sit while you heat up an egg pan, treating it with olive oil, cooking spray or butter. Once it's hot, add the eggs in and once they start to set, start gently mixing. Add in any ingredients you'd like, mixing until the eggs are at the doneness you'd like them. If you're topping with cheese, add it before they get too done. Serve with whatever side you'd like.
