How do you Egg? How do you Omelette?

Good Evening,

How do you egg ? How do you omelette ? Would love to hear from you all in ref to the topic ... And do you prefer white or toast colored eggs and why ?

This question brings me to, two countries ... so, In Spain I like to prepare Stuffed Hard Boiled Eggs with Tuna packed in Olive Oil ... I also like a French Style Omelette with some chives ... simple and French style Baguette with a drizzle of olive oil ...

Both these two countries have a Fritatta culture ... Spain has the Spanish Potato and Onion Tortilla ( not Aztec Mexican corn flat bread ) and Italia, a Fritatta with spinach with red bell pepper, green bell, gold bell and cheese ...

Growing up, my Swiss French Mom used to prepare a stunner Quiche, so yes, Broccoli Quiche ...

Margi.
Thanks in advance ...

Any way I can get eggs. I love them and enjoy Tortillas, Frittatas, Quiches...

Eggs are the most versatile food. I am partial to savory dishes.

Brown eggs are our favorite, they seem to peel easier when hard boiled and have a richer taste.

I love eggs any way too. I tried eggs nuked in a coffee cup for lunch the other day when there was nothing else in the fridge. Worked pretty slick, quick and tasty! Gotta have ketchup and chipotle Tabasco!

Dawgluver,

Sorry. Could you please explain nuked in a coffee cup ? Is this soft boiled or just stuffed into the cup scrambled ?

Well, we are getting ready to take a nice Saturday evening stroll and have a round of wines, and catch up with each other ...

Until tomorrow.
Margi.

Sorry, Margi. Microwaved. There are many different ways, I did this: Crack 2 eggs into a big mug, add a T of milk or cream, some S&P, stir. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir again. Microwave for another 30 to 45 seconds, top with shredded cheese. I forgot to spray the cup with cooking spray prior, but it turned out fine. You could add minced chives, crumbled bacon, etc. Pretty bourgeois, I know, but it worked!

My favorite omelet is with roasted Red Peppers, Crimini Mushrooms (sliced) and Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce drizzled over.
