He did cook scrambled eggs in cast iron over a campfire. They looked pretty good.

I enjoy being entertained, but not with stupidity.

I don't like fried eggs but my mother did them in a little oil or bacon fat in the frying pan but a former flatmate used to deep-fry them (shell-less!) in the chip (= french fries - I think) pan - bleuch!

I've heard of deep-fried duck eggs before.

I don't think I'd ever try deep-frying an egg. You'd think the moisture in the egg white would have a bad reaction to being dumped into hot oil?

I decided to try ATK method and just happen to be the owner of a tea strainer. So I dropped the egg into that, let the water (that is in all eggs, just the amount differs according to age of the egg) drain and then proceeded to fry it. Perfectly nice round fried egg. Worth the extra step.

Just one caveat. Don't rinse the strainer first in hot water after you place the egg in the pan. It will cook what little white is in it and can be a devil to clean. Rinse with cold water first.

The Rolle egg machine was funny, too. What came out of the thing was pretty awful looking. There are other funny videos of that "kitchen appliance"...



Why would anyone buy one of those things?

If I come up with a logical answer, I will let you know in the year 2525. Someone must remember that song. That didn't even look the least bit appetizing.

Re: 'tube' eggs...I know that sounds gross, but I think that many hospitals use those layered cylinder cooked eggs for their hard cooked eggs. Hospital kitchens don't have the time to hard cook, peel, and hand slice eggs for salads or garnishes. I would imagine that higher end commercial cylinders are used and the product is shipped to the facility cooled and ready to use.

At least that's what I was told from someone who worked in a hospital kitchen....I could be wrong.
