Sweet Eggs?

I always thought my husband was a little strange when he'd get excited if there was leftover egg with cinnamon and vanilla after we made french toast. He loves to fry it up, says it's the best part. Tonight he took it even farther. He texted me while I was at work to tell me he'd made the best eggs ever. I asked what was so great about them, so he sent me this recipe, entitled "Creamsicle Eggs":

2 eggs
1/2 tbsp sugar (not sure how he got 1/2 tbsp, I'm guessing he estimated)
1/2 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp Orange extract

He cooked them scrambled egg style. He said they were amazing. I think they sound even worse than his post-french-toast eggs. I'm curious though, he can't be the only one out there who likes sweet eggs. Anyone else ever do something like this? I'm not talking about making eggs into sweet custard or a sweet souffle. I'm talking about basically sweetened scrambled eggs. Something about the texture just doesn't work with sweet for me, but does it for you?

Japanese make a Sweet Omelette (Tamagoyaki) that is wonderful. I love it. I will also, fry up the last of the French toast eggs, top with butter and powdered sugar...yum.

Topped with butter and orange marmalade. Double yum.

That is something I think I would not try. But to each his own. I personally think that Coleslaw on a BBQ Sandwich is gross. I will eat it as a side dish, thank you very much.

why not, custards are nothing more than sweet eggs, just handled/cooked differently.

I love fried eggs on top of pancakes or waffles drenched in syrup and butter. But I agree with you on the sweet scrambled eggs thing...not great.

reminds me of the eggs that you get as banchan with korean bbq.

they're sweet scrambled eggs baked/steamed in an earthenware bowl that are delicious.

i'll have to try the vanilla and sugar next time at home.

Oh sweet baby Jebus yes. I love those! I grill up my kimchee and eat it w/ said eggs. I love that dynamic of sweet, sour, salty, nutty, creamy. . . . . . . .hell, that sounds like a Pee Wee Herman porno. . .

Thanks, BT, now I want Korean BBQ!! The bon chon is just as fun as the meal!

I like soft scrambled eggs drizzled with maple syrup with crispy bacon bits on top. Never tried sweetening my eggs before cooking though. And I don't think I can do the all sweet thing, eggs need salt in my opinion.

Sweet eggs aren't my thing either! I keep syrup and eggs separate on my breakfast plate, or preferably separate plates!

But I do like custards - a different thing entirely.

It makes sense that eggs are good served sweet as well as savoury.
