At my old rugby club a post match game involved the team seeing off an entire large jar of pickled eggs. Some interesting smells.

I remember Ramsey not adding it to the raw egg as it breaks the egg down, he did add it while cooking. Essentially adding it later in the cooking process rather than earlier.
There are plenty of wives tales even in the highest levels of cooking, hard and fast rules in one kitchen are completely disregarded in another.

I love eggs in almost every single way. I do love a hard boiled egg for a snack on the go but nothing beats a perfectly fried egg on toast.

I’ve also adopted the last minute salting technique a la Ramsey, but it does mean that, occasionally, I sometimes forget to put it in, leaving my morning in fücking tatters :frown:

I went to a cafe for breakfast a few weeks ago and had nasi goreng instead of bacon and eggs. It was amazing. Especially with the pork belly and fried egg on top. :thumbup:

Put about a dessertspoon of kimchi (not too much!) with three eggs and make an omelette. Very nice, gourmet food in less than a minute.

Balut is good too.

THAT'S what I'm talking about - Filipino's are not only the happiest, friendliest people I've ever met, they also don't fuck about when it comes to scran.

Similar-ish to the Ramsay link I posted above. The trick being taking time to heat through. Scrambled really are a most fantastic way to eat eggs when done well.

Now it’s about the only way I have them for breakfast.
Nice, thanks for posting :thumbup:

Surprised I've never seen that as I'm a total Gordon fanboi myself. My current method is ripped from what I could glean from a demo he did on Masterchef, but no creme fraiche on that occasion. Will have to give it a go.

If I were to open an egg-themed cafe, I’d probably call it “Ovaries-Z”.

Maybe “Heaven N Oeuf”.

Not worth it at home, but I always order my eggs scrambled in cafes. The fancy cafes near me always nail it, and there is an absolute ceiling on what you can charge for scrambled eggs and mushrooms on toast, so you get a banging brekkie for $13.

Ramsay’s don’t take anywhere near that long. Heston likes to push the envelope. But by the sounds his are next level smooth.

I’d recommend Ramsay’s way. It totally converted me from not liking scrambled to them now being my favoured way to enjoy eggs.

You do it just like he does? My FiL makes his with milk and it was meh...not overly familiar with creme fraiche but wondering if it would have the same effect.

I don’t always add the creme fraiche, but it’s a nice addition. The key is just slow heat and ensure you don’t over cook and dry them out. It’s simple.

I don't know about the best food ever but eggs are certainly a heavyweight among breakfast options, alongside bacon.

Could you imagine a breakfast menu without eggs? Like fvck you could.

Boiled eggs are what I dislike in eggs. Like fried and scrambled eggs fine, LOVE poached eggs. I suppsoe I can tolerate runny boiled eggs (still 'meh') but not hard boiled ones.

You are wrong. A bit of sea salt and pepper...pop them in your gob and you're good to go.

I’ll do the pan scrambled but we still take up to 1/2 an hour making them , on / off heat. We do it while cooking the rest of breakfast normally. It’s not a chore.

On the golf courses here there are drinks shacks dotted around the course where you can rehydrate (water/beers) and get sustenance. The main food is bananas and boiled eggs. Following my partners I have developed a taste for boiled eggs with soya sauce. They're fantastic!

The greatest meal form of egg is Eggs Benedict or Eggs Royals. And that requires poached eggs. Ergo poached is best.

Yep, just insert into ramekins with your favourite ingrediants, place in a shallow tray of water and cook - easy peasy and lots of potential combos - eg:

Also like Clogs' idea but I'd refine it a little and call my cafe "Let a bird shit you breakfast"
