Place eggs in cold water to cover. Turn burner on high, after water begins to boil, set timer for 10 minutes, turn heat to medium. After 10 minutes, run under cold tap water for 3 minutes. I don't have green rings, shell sticking to egg, or under or over cooked eggs. Simple

I love boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, poached eggs. lol I was born in Gibraltar
and I cook spanish food. has anyone ever tried tortilla, its delicious
Here is the recipe, if you would like to try at home.

Ok, get 4-6 large fresh free range eggs

beat in a basin, in the meantime get 3 large potatoes

wash and chop into chunks, fry in deep hot oil

once cooked add to egg mixture, season with salt & pepper

then get one large onion, chop into cubes, fry in a little oil

then add onions to egg mixture

then get a large frying pan, with some olive oil

add mixture to the pan, then cook on one side

then get a large plate, place on frying pan, carefully turning the tortilla
upside down, cook the other side, when you do this, its best that you do
this over the sink, as there is an art to it.

serve either hot or cold with Mayonaise, you will love it
its so tasty. you can either add sweetcorn and peas to the mixture
when cooking the tortilla.

Please let me know how you get on,


From Suzita

A Spanish tortilla, as opposed to a Mexican tortilla, is a close cousin to the Italian fritatta. So many people, especially televison chefs, have bastardized the fritatta for so long that is seems to have lost it's identity.

First of all, a fritatta is made with egg, the whole egg, and nothing but the egg, so help me Grandma LoVullo. No milk or cream, no flour, and no baking soda. A fritatta is supposed to be dense, NOT fluffy!

A fritatta customarily has potato in it, small diced and sauted before you cook the eggs. Potato is usually joined by Italian sausage without a casing or panchetta, and it is added just before the potato is cooked and before the egg is added. Then, and only then, do you add the egg, and some type of melting cheese such as mozzarella or asiago. Gorganzola works too, if you like bleu cheeses. This is the point where you also add your vegetables, such as onions, scalions, bell pepper, or wwhatever vegetables you like.

A fritatta is cooked in a frying pan (I prefer a cast iron skillet) on top of the stove. Once the fritatta is lightly browned on the bottom, you slip it under the broiler to finish the top and perhaps melt some extra cheese onto it. It is NEVER baked in the oven. It is not a quiche, and it is not a souflle, it is a fritatta.

Suzita, thanks for the tortilla recipe. I will definitely be preparing it for my next brunch. What side dishes would you recommend? I am kind of partial to fruit salads to accompany brunch.

Wow, no posts for 19 months.
Things are simmering here.
This topic has so many posts is boiled eggs is the most simple meal to cook, aside from toast. Probly the worlds most common meal.
When storing boiled eggs in the fridge, I like to draw funny faces on them using a indelible black felt tip pen.
I wonder if the ink could influence the egg in a negative way?
Foogd for thot.
They appear more humorous.

Any time I make eggs I turn them into tea eggs!



6 medium to large eggs
2 tea bags of earl grey tea
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4 pieces star anise
1 pinch of pepper
  1. Put eggs in a medium-sized pot with enough water to cover the eggs.
  2. Bring water to boil, then lower heat to simmer for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove eggs from heat and allow them to cool(you can put them in an ice bath to speed this up.
  4. Take the back of a knife or spoon and crack eggs evenly all around.
  5. Return eggs to the pot and add the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Bring liquid to boil again, then simmer on very low heat for 1 to 4 hours(longer = more color/flavor), adding water if level gets too low.
  7. Remove from heat, cool, peel shells an WA-LA!
