Eggs in General
Advantages: Delish; Can be cooked in loads of different ways
Disadvantages: Cholestrol in the yolk
We get through loads of eggs in our house and it's only because I've been starting to eat more myself that I've started thinking of them as more than something to mash up and add to mayo for dinner!
Eggs are proper versatile, they can be cooked in loads of different ways and as long as you don't cook them in fat then they're healthy. They've got some cholestrol in the yolk so it's a good idea not to eat too many of them, but the good thing is that you can do loads with just the egg WHITES and there's no fat at all in that part of the egg.
Egg white omlette is yummy and you can add loads of different things to it like bacon, ham and even peas and cooked onions. I had one today, I used 4 egg whites and just one yolk and it was just as nice as if I'd used all the yolks and added a load of uneccessary fat to my meal.
You can't beat a boiled egg for breakfast, I like mine done so the yolk is runny and then I dip toast soldiers into it. When I cook one for my 2 year old sister I love watching her dip her toast into the yolk because she laughs like it's the funniest thing she's ever seen! lol Cooking a perfect soft boiled egg is simple, if you're using a medium sized egg you boil the water then time 5 mins when you add the egg. It's never gone wrong for me anyway! lol
I'm not mad keen on fried eggs but they've got their place..... and that place is on a sandwich with bacon and ketchup! lol The odd times I cook a fried egg for myself I use as least fat as possible and have it so that the yolk is still runny, I swat the hot fat over the egg instead of turning it over because I think that makes the yolk go a lot nicer.
Scrambled eggs are delish, I don't have them that often because you have to use too many eggs for one serving. It's delish on toast though or stuffed into a pitta bread, scrambled eggs is just like a yummier omelette so you can other things to them too.
Apart from those ways of cooking eggs you can use them in cooking such as for cakes and muffins. I have eggy bread sometimes and that's yummy, a bit greasy because they bread is fried but still proper tasty.
We usually buy free range eggs because it's kinder for the hens and they also taste better, that's expensive though so we're not madly strict about it and sometimes buy the normal supermarket own brand which are from caged hens but are more in the price range when you're getting through about 18 eggs a week.
