Cooking Eggs

Hey there!

I have some more info about eggs for you:

How do I prepare eggs?


  • Place eggs in a single layer in a pot. Fill the pot with cold water, up to one inch above the tops of the eggs.
  • Heat on high, just to boiling. Remove the pot from the burner and cover. Let stand for about 12 minutes.
  • Drain and cool under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water. Refrigerate.
  • Tada!


  • Beat 2 eggs with 1/2 cup of milk until blended.
  • Heat a teaspoon of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture.
  • As eggs begin to set, gently pull them across the pan, lifting and folding, forming large soft chunks. No need to stir constantly.
  • Remove from heat when there is no visible liquid egg left.


  • Heat 2 tsp butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Break 2 eggs and slip them into the pan and immediately reduce the heat to low.
  • Cook until white completely set and yolks begin to thicken.
  • Use a flipula to carefully flip the eggs and cook on second side until desired doneness.


  • Boil 2-3 inches of water in a large pot. Lower heat to a gentle simmer.
  • Break an egg into a saucer and slowly slip it into the water. Do this again with a second egg.
  • Cook until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken (3-5 minutes).
  • Lift eggs from water with a slotted spoon. Drain and serve.

What can I make with my eggs?

In addition to these cooking techniques, there are many other ways to prepare eggs such as:

  • Quiche
  • French toast
  • Meringue
  • Omelets
  • Souffle
  • Frittata
  • Baked custard
  • As part of any number of eggcellent dishes!
