    How do you like your eggs?

    Eggs are a wondrous thing. I find myself enjoying poached eggs lately, though this morning I underwhelmed myself by cooking them badly, which is a shame.

    As all decent Englishmen should be, I'm partial to a fried egg, cooked the right way i.e. runny and none of this flipped nonsense.

    Scrambled are great. Omelettes are awesome. Hard boiled in a salad, can't go wrong. As a kid, soft boiled with soldiers was the bee's knees.

    I'm giving the prize to poached in this case but when this thread is undoubtedly bumped in the future I may advise differently.

    Over the last few years I have on occasion had a meal consisting of six boiled eggs and nothing else. Have moved on to having massive portions of scrambled egg for meals now.

    I do not suppose this is particularly good for me in terms of cholesterol etc... But oh well.

    Now this is a question.

    Probably soft poached on a good piece of toasted bread with salt and pepper. Although scrambled with smoked salmon is to die for as well. Or omeletted. Or fried on a roll with potato scone.

    Boiled's really the only one that I can live without tbh.

    I'll also flip a fried egg if I'm having one, I still like a bit of runniness but I want the egg to stick within the confines of my roll and not running and dripping all over the place where it needs mopped up.

    Poached is completely different, the runnier the better IMO.

    If it's on a butty flipping is fine tbh. As part of a Fried English or evening meal though, a flipped egg is a missed opportunity.

    How you describe your poached is exactly how I have it. Probably at least four days a week I have two eggs poached on a piece of toast with salt and pepper. It's the ****.

    In school I was taught that you should only have 2-3 eggs a week due to cholesterol but that has since been proven incorrect, I believe. As such I don't think you have anything to worry about. Which is a great shame as I rather enjoy the thought of you in a lot of pain.

    I eat 3 boiled eggs most days; given I don't eat meat it's my main source of protein and B12 and cholesterol. Easy to make, easy enough to wolf down in the morning.
    Not my preferred method though. Would much rather go for scrambled or an omelette.

    Poached by far the best.

    All are pretty damn good though.

    Mustn't have too many else you'll get egg bound, and that really isn't nice

    Poached on some sourdough with avocado.

    Also pretty partial to french toast, but not with sweet stuff on it, just straight up with salt and pepper

    I find boiled eggs really hard to eat on their own, so unless it's in an egg mayo sandwich or something similar I tend to avoid.

    Pretty much any other way it's prepared works great for me.

    Haha I dunno, just don't like the taste of boiled eggs. I'm aware this is not normal.
