As to the curry, adding a bit to egg salad is marvelous. As is a touch of anchovy.

well. you can actually make a soup outta of garlic and eggs. they taste super nice!!!
you should mix chopped meat with garlic and eggs. boil some water and put the mix into the water. after the soup is boiled. you can add some salt, some tomatoes and some mushrooms.

I do, I've always put it on, ever since I ordered it on a vacation back east. I don't know if the east portion is relevant as far as region goes but I've always used garlic on my eggs.

I LOVE garlic... but eggs are one of the few dishes that I don't add it to. To me, eggs have a delicate flavor that can be easily overpowered by other seasonings and ingredients.

It's all a matter of satisfying your own tastes, though.

No garlic on FRESH eggs here--sometimes fresh tarragon, sometimes jalapeno, but not garlic. My DH who loves garlic on EVERYTHING doesn't put garlic on his FRESH eggs...maybe roasted garlic, but I am one of those people who likes the taste of FRESH eggs with just a bit of S&P.

I agree that eggs taste great on their own. I have my own flock of chickens and love that the eggs taste so much better than the pale, weak store bought.

We also have ducks and my kids LOVE the duck eggs. Recently I have been eating turkey eggs from the soon to become Thanksgiving birds.I can't believe how delicious a turkey egg (free range birds) tastes. I have 2 left and I keep thinking how I am going to eat them. YUM.

We did have geese for a few years and I ate them like crazy during both my pregnancies. My boys were grown on goose eggs (Fried with grits!!!!! Soft boiled with toast soldiers dipping into the never ending golden lava yolk) inside my belly and now are growing on duck eggs!

Sorry for side tracking but I agree, a simple plain egg is delicious but I wanted to add there are so many different great eggs.

Just kidding. That's supposed to give eggs a funny taste. If I'm making a sandwich I usually add a little garlic powder to the eggs. It all depends on what I'm in the mood for.
I feed garlic to my hens a lot. I think it is very good for them. Especially during molt season and winter when they are more susceptible to getting sick. The coop ends up smelling like garlic but the taste does NOT transfer to the eggs. I think that is a bit of an urban legend.

I put whole heads of garlic in the food processor, paper and all and them mix it in with a pot of rice with added yogurt. They LOVE it.

Cooking for chickens!

Miracle Whip? Nevah......on anything.

My kids used to squirt ketchup all over their eggs and I couldn't even watch them eat it.
Agree on the Miracle whip. My 5 year old son loves Franks Hot Sauce on his eggs. I thought hot sauce on eggs was crazy until I tried it. OMG. YUM.

Miracle Whip? ABSOLUTELY!

Garlic too! Turns plain eggs into a meal fit for a King.

Miracle Whip on almost anything! I use no other store bought mayo.
