oh, there's nothing like a runny yolked, ss up egg over a medium rare steak.

the yolk becomes a decadent sauce for the meat as you cut into it.

And if the steak is grilled over fire, well, that's just better still. And if we're delving into the subject of topping things with runny-yolk eggs, crispy hash browns (shredded not cubed) with an egg on top is tasty too, as is corned beef hash.

Hmmm. Have you ever made an egg sandwich on soft, whole wheat bread, with mayonaise and American Cheese slices, with a runny yolk, bacon grease basted egg? If you haven't you have to try it. Have napkins ready.

Egg is also great made into the infamous - wait for it, Scotch Eggs. Those look so good. I'm wondering how fantastic they would be with a soft boiled egg inside, rather than hard boiled. Breakfast sausage and egg yolk is such a great combination. Good stuff!

Oh, and BT, I hear that raw egg is great for conditioning hair. So, tonight, sneak up behind your DW and crack an egg in her hair. Make sure to thoroughly work it in. She'll thank you.

Ok, I'm ducking and running, fast.

Soft boiled eggs are 3-5 minutes in a rolling boil here. Depends on your altitude how long to cook 'em. I have egg cups for mine so they get pulled out, popped into an egg cup and I whack the top off with a knife. Dip those toast fingers and chow down!

Side note: When my youngest was about 5 or 6 she once came home for lunch and ate 7 soft boiled eggs with toast! Considering she didn't break 50lbs til she was in about grade 3...that's a LOT of eggs for a little girl!

My is just one of the ways to deal with the shock of a cold egg dropping into boiling water causing the egg to crack.

Dog eggs, eh? That's something new for me. I doubt any of the areas I contemplate moving to will allow me to keep chickens. Would be interested otherwise.

I like to mix my soft boiled eggs with a cubed piece of toast, toss it, and a little S+P on that, a good breakfast IMO.

As long as this is a discussion about other ways of cooking eggs, how about a fried egg ("up") over a stack of pancakes, maple syrup over that? (And a little salt.) One of my favorite breakfasts.

For non-US members: the term "sunny side up" is often shortened to "up" or "eggs up" as in a coffee shop order. Fried on one side only. Usually served with runny yolk, the way I like mine.
Dog eggs are the ones that the dogs get to eat--I screwed up my poached egg yesterday--it was too "done" for my liking, so it was a dog egg and I made another egg for myself (when you have hens, you can do that--I traded 3 doz eggs today for some venison). Dog eggs are also the eggs that we don't find the day they are laid...the eggs that are hidden in the grass/loft/etc The dogs don't mind, but I like my eggs FRESH.

Okay--for those of you who don't have hens--you have NOT lived until you've had an egg salad sandwich made with homemade mayo using eggs you collected in the morning, warm hb eggs you also collected in the morning, and homemade wholewheat bread. Go ahead and drool. Next time I do that, I'll snap a pic if I stop myself from eating it first.

Ooh, sounds good. Since you get your girls vaccinated for salmonella, I think those eggs will be for something that uses raw egg. Steak tartar with a raw egg yolk on top, Danish dessert mousse, ... I'm sure I'll think of more stuff.
