FRIED - MY BRAIN, NOT THE EGG

I STARTED back at work this week and though I love my job, after two weeks of pottering around home, garden and the op shops, it's been a shock. I'm wishing I was back pondering the art of making the perfect poached egg, a skill I can say I successfully mastered - age 37 - during my annual leave. I know, simple things do amuse. I had to master it to make me this tasty treat.

Poached, scrambled, boiled or fried? Do you have an eggy preference? Come on, work with me here. It's serious stuff back at work. Help me keep the holiday glow for a couple more days, I beg of you.

  2. I love them poached, but can never make them at home. So only get to have it in special occasions in cafes. Well done in mastering the art of poaching. I think you need to take some time off work to teach us fellow bloggers on how to cook it properly ;)

  3. mmm, would have to be the poached. I add a dollop of that Thomy mayo on top with salt and pepper and I am more than content. I do think two weeks is a good break but a third is needed to consolidate all of the two weeks of goodness. P.S. you are welcome at my place any time - I will make sure there are fresh flowers and eggs ;)

  4. I LOVE poached eggs! I wish I could cook them the professional way but I don't have the patience. I cheat by using a silicone cup. I'd love to be able to cook them like the ones you've made. Guess what I'll be having for breakfast in the morning?

  5. OK I'm usually torn between soft-boiled and poached, but having made Nigella's oeufs en cocottes for the first time recently (and eating them regularly since) I say BAKED all the way!!!

  6. Scrambled or poached. I still can't cook a good poached egg. And I'm a few years ahead of you.

  7. I love eggs, and prefer poached eggs if they are being by some kind person who wishes to feed me. However when I cook eggs for myself, and this is usually a lunch, i love making a fluffy omelette with wilted baby spinach tucked inside. It's so beautiful in it's ease and simplicity.

    Oh and I have become fond of having my omelette with hummus, is that very strange?

    (I technically have two weeks off from uni but with two assignments and one week of farmwork to get done, I'm not feeling it...bring on December)

    lovely blog as always x

  8. For me it comes down to how many eggs I fancy (or have in the fridge) and what accompaniments are hanging around. If there's only one and nothing but bread and butter, it's soft-boiled, one + avocado = poached, and 2-3 means scrambled.

  9. I'm a poached person myself - but not my own. I definitely haven't mastered that art yet. I do make a good scrambled though!
