Just made fried eggs in the skillet this morning. They tasted great, but I had to be pretty diligent to not let them stick. And I will say that I am not the best fried egg maker in the world!

I generally avoid frying eggs in my CI skillet.

99% of the time I'll break the yolk when turning it over (I avoid using the word "flip" in this case!) Eggs are something I'll keep cooking in my teflon skillet.

Yeah, I just wanted to try it out. I made 3 eggs though and no broken yolks.

No broken yolks!? You should make a video so that people like me can learn how to do that using CI.

Well, I noticed that they had a tendency to stick. So I stood there and loosened them with a plastic turner now and then. The "flip" wasn't real graceful either. Not even a flip really, more of a gentle rollover. Some of them seemed to release ok and I could scoop them with the turner and flip over.

I remember watching Alton Brown make fried eggs in a teflon pan. He loosened the egg, then flipped them with the pan. He brought the pan up to meet the egg so as to reduce impact. Don't think I'll be doing that with the CI!

Just made bacon, hashbrowns, and omelets in the skillet. Everything worked very well! I was pleasantly suprised that nothing stuck. I remember making hashbrowns in CI before, and they stuck pretty bad. But of course the bacon grease helped the potatoes not stick. I actually had too much grease, and I had to dump some out because the potatoes weren't browning. Then for the omelets I ran some hot water in the pan to get all the excess bits and grease out. Then I added butter, and made omelets. They didn't stick at all! So tell me, could I have just used the bacon grease with the omelets?
