One beautiful Sunday morning you decide to have breakfast in a cafe. You get in, find a seat, and get ready to order. You know for sure you want some eggs for breakfast. But the problem is, there are millions kinds of eggs in the cafe! What do you choose? And how do you choose?
Here, I am going to help you answer the question 'How do you want your eggs cooked?'
- SCRAMBLED EGGS
To cook scrambled eggs, they are usually cracked into a bowl and whisked to blend the whites and the yolk. Sometimes water or milk is added to the mixture. If scrambled eggs are prepared well, they are fluffy and soft.
- SUNNY SIDE UP
Sunny side up means your egg yolk looks like a bright morning sun.To cook it, crack an egg into a frying pan and do not flip it over. The yolk can be dripping or pretty hard depending on how long you cook it.
- OVER (HARD, MEDIUM, EASY)
If you flip the egg in the previous recipe, you will make OVER EASY EGG. If you leave it for a while, it will turn into OVER MEDIUM, and then to OVER HARD).
- BOILED (HARD BOILED, SOFT BOILED)
The name speaks for itself here - these eggs are boiled in water. 10-12 minutes will make them hard boiled, less time will make them soft boiled.
The egg is cracked into a bowl, and then gently slid into a pot with simmering water and cooked until the egg white has mostly become solid, but the yolk remains soft. The 'perfect' poached egg has a runny yolk, with a hardening crust and should have no raw white remaining.
