just ate one this morning. as I do most mornings. it's like a tradition, except when my boyfriend & I don't have much time/don't eat breakfast together.

I like mine boiled for like 4-5 minutes, so the egg yolk (?) is still slimey & soft, but the egg white is well boiled & yum. scooping it out with a tiny spoon & some salt is yay, but even better is putting it on a warm, crispy, toasted slice of bread. oh, BABY.

I loooooove hard boiled eggs. I cook them fully, because I love the texture of teh boiled yolk. I keep a pepper shaker and a salt shaker ready, because I need to get every single bite just enough.

I love all eggs, but sadly, they make my stomach feel bad afterward. Egg in a hats are awesome... so are omlets... and fried egg sandwiches... and scrambled eggs with onions and peppers mixed in... and oh dear. Eggs are glorious. Stupid stomach. :(

I have no idea. I didn't know it was common, either.



I can't boil eggs, I'll try learn this Christmas, but when ppl make me eggs it's okay, I like them fried, but not too much of them, then it's the overdose & I feel like throwing up.
You can't... boil eggs? Are you sure? You seriously put some water in a pot, put some eggs in the water, and boil the water for 5-10 minutes, depending on how much you want them boiled.

Fried eggs is where I struggle. My friends have banned me from frying eggs because I always fail miserably at cracking an egg. I'm too wimpy about it, haha. the crack takes forever and then the egg slowly slides through the crack before it's fully cracked. Then there's just a big mess on the pan. :(

JoY
12-19-2006, 04:15 AM
I'm the queen at cracking eggs. 4srs, I am. no mess, yolk intact, *kisses fingertips* perfect. I don't like fried eggs much, though. I used to love them, especially after a field hockey game, but with the butter & stuff... I've grown to hate the fatty taste of butter, which I loved as a kid. so no fried eggs for me.

Llamas
12-19-2006, 04:16 AM
Butter? Fried eggs? When do you put butter on fried eggs? I just spray some spray on the pan, fry the egg, put some pepper and salt on it, and dip some warm toast in the yolk (hell yesss to sunny side up!). No butter.

you put butter in the pan, let it melt until it's still, then toss in the eggs. spray is for savages.

JoY
12-19-2006, 04:42 AM
I don't mind that butter is unhealthy, the fat combined with the fat & proteins of eggs just upsets my stomach & makes me feel nauseous. like I said, after doing sports, I used to LOVE fried eggs. now I quit doing sports, my tummy has just turned into a total wuss.

Llamas
12-19-2006, 04:43 AM
Ah, I gotcha.

You know, that's probably why my stomach is fucked up lately. It started getting bad once I quit band. My stomach has become really sensitive to a lot of things... maybe it's because I'm not in shape anymore. Maybe I'll find time in January to start working out again... hmm.

Isn't it funny how years and years ago there was not such a high risk of getting salmonellosis? I remember as kids we could eat slightly cooked eggs without being worried. Nowadays I'd never do that with eggs I buy in the supermarket. Maybe that's one thing that made me eat them less. But I still enjoy a hard-boiled egg in baked potato. Or well-done scrambled eggs with mushrooms, onions and sprinkled with cayenne pepper.

Weird, actually. Here, I feel like it was the reverse. When I was a kid, I was always warned to NEVER eat raw cookie dough, or drink home made egg nog. I feel like now, everyone does both and there are no worries about it. This might be a dumb question, but where do you guys get your eggs from? As in, what country/area?

Our own country. Don't get me wrong, it's not like they are bad or anything. But there's still a tiny risk when you buy food which you don't cook yourself. Or eggs. Maybe I'm paranoid about supermarket eggs because as a child we always had fresh ones either ours or from relatives. And that was 100% safe. Thing is, eggs go bad pretty fast. And diseases scare me.

Haha, with hardboiled ones I don't mind as much (I still don't like it though), but soft ones...eeew, the white there just makes me gag, I would always eat the middle, like dip in bits of toast, and then give the white to my parents. Actually, I still do that whenever I eat egg ;)

That is, by far the best part. And as the goddess said, I used to not eat the white when I was little and just eat the yolk. My mom used to get so mad at me for wasting the white.

Hmm. I think eggs last a really long time, haha. Maybe you are paranoid. I'm like that with milk. I annoy everyone... I always smell the milk before I drink it, and I always think it smells like it's gone bad, but it's always fine. I filed a big complaint at my dining services my freshman year of college because I thought their milk bottles were not refrigerated well enough, haha! Man. Me + milk = humor.

As much as I hate eggs I have to agree with this. But honestly, it doesn't taste that good when you have a huge bowl of it. It's so much better when you're making cookies and only allowed to taste it with fingers.

Llamas

You're right, probably. I've never actually had a whole bowl of it, and I'd probably get really sick of it if I did. Cookie Dough ice cream is perfect, though.

I always pinch my fork in the egg yolk when it's on my toast. I guess it's the same effect -> muchos egg yolk on toast, YUMZ!

cookie dough ice cream = *orgasms*. holy mack. especially Ben & Jerry's. *faints* I used to eat that stuff until I bursted & then I was nauseous like crazy:( , but still ate more of it anyway, because it's so yummy & in the end I'd end up complaining my tummy was too small.:o

A lot of people do it. I assume it's the same reason some people like their steaks rare and call the blood "juice". Some people like euphimisms for their food.

Plus, it makes sense, since we do call the other part the "white".

Oddly, when it comes to boiled eggs I actually prefer the white part.

We call it "the yellow" in Slovak. Although I know it's yolk in English, I don't know why I keep saying yellow. Maybe it's just we all assume it's something perfectly understandable. Since there's just the white and the yellow.

I did think of the "white" vs. "yellow" part... I still think it's odd. But the "juice" thing is much different. I think that that's because people don't like to talk about eating blood in their food. That's like calling it meat instead of muscle. ;)

As I said, euphimisms. The word "yolk" could potentially remind you that you're eating an egg, and exactly what an egg is. This could put you off your food.

I didn't like them whether they were cold or hot. Now, I like them hot. Cold is okay, but not as good.

I was not comparing eggs sandwich and omlets, though. It's been such a long time I ate an omlet... Maybe I'd like them now, though it would surprise me. I don't want to try, because I'm sure I won't like that. The only way I'll try that is if my mother decides to make one.

Have you ever looked at it? It's yellow!



Now for a gross story to put everyone off eggs: I was once at a friend's place, they had their own chicken, so their own eggs, too. But somehow the rooster managed to get with the chicken, and we didn't know. So we were gonna make scrambled eggs one day, and sure enough, we ended up with an embryo in our pan.

I'm SO happy we decided on scrambled eggs, and not a soft boiled one. Imagine dipping your toast in, having a few bites, and THEN finding the embryo. Gross gross gross. It put me off eggs for a good while.

It must be eating habits. Slovaks eat too little for breakfast, then we have a huge lunch at noon with soup and another cooked meal, then a (mostly) light and usually uncooked dinner.

Camilamazed
12-20-2006, 12:00 PM
Yeah. Although people here eat a lot for breakfast. Fruits are the main part of breakfast. I just spotted that because I can't eat a lot during the morning. It's just that my stomach doesn't "allow" me to.

Nina
12-20-2006, 12:00 PM
The German food habits are really weird imo, is anyone out there who relates to this?

breakfast - bread with cheese and/or "Wurst", which is basically meat.
lunch - cooked meal. usually something with potatoes, haha.
dinner - uncooked, same as breakfast but probably with more Wurst ;P

That's not my personal eating habit, but it's my bf's cause he's, well, German.

Camilamazed
12-20-2006, 12:04 PM
Here:

Breakfast: Fruits, juices, coffe, milk, crakers & bread with either butter or jams, ham & cheese.

Lunch: Rice, beans, potatos either mashed, fried or cooked, steak and lots of green salads and vegetables. Pasta or fish sometimes.

The same apply for dinner. There are people that take snacks to avoid dinner.

Yeees, we add even more spices in it. With a little extra virgin olive oil and a glass of fresh orange juice you can have the best breakfast.

I don't understand how you guys eat ham and stuff for breakfast. Meat makes me sick in the mornings.

Finnish, too. Must be a semi-Germanic loan. "keltuainen" to be specific - 'keltainen' means yellow. Similarly, egg whites = valkuainen - and valkoinen means white.

I love boiled eggs. I have a rule about not eating too many, though, so if at all, I eat two eggs a week. Some herb salt, eat it with a spoon. Yummy.

I've never been a fan of eggs in any other format, like scrambled or fried. So boiled it is.

Rar, German wurst! The only Finnish breakfast tradition I find semi-original would be porridge. Not that most people do it, though. I used to, once, porridge and frozen blueberries (that melt nicely when the porridge is hot) were delish. I personally nowadays just drink massive amounts of tea late into the afternoon. My life sucks.

Same here, though if I have somewhere to go, or I woke up later than usual, I have an apple right away, otherwise, I wait a little, and then it's time for apple and coffee!

Over here people eat bread for breakfast (or crackers or whatever) mostly, with anything like cheese, lunchmeat, jam, peanutbutter of any of or dozen breadspreads (we have a lot!), same thing goes for lunch, and winner is the warm, cooked meal.

I have weird eating habits, I eat more smaller meals a day, but I do need that warm one at night, otherwise I get hungry!

"English" food in general is actually quite multi-cultural and varied these days. But even traditional English dishes don't have to be bland. It all depends on what you to do to personalize it and make it your own.

Shepherd's Pie is a great example. You take your minced up beef (hamburger for you Yanks), cook it, then cover it in mashed potatoes. If you have any sense you then cover it in grated cheese and pop it in the oven. Done. Or, you can add all kind of seasonings to the meat, perhaps some onions, perhaps some mushrooms. You can add salsa if you want, it's all good.

It doesn't matter what nationality your food hails from, it's only ever going to be as bland as the person who prepares it. And with that I win.

Oh, and I was previously talking specifically about English breakfasts. Full English Breakfasts. Bacon, sausage (REAL ones nothing like American ones), fried bread etc.

The best thing I can say about food in England is that London has some great Indian restaurants that are far superior than any Indian food you can get in the US. And Indian food pwnz.

And I kinda like those cornish pasty thingamabobs.

Everyone does. Did you have a cheese and onion one? My personal favourite.

English cuisine always makes me wonder: how come black pudding is actually a meat product?

Also, we have these in Finland, too, only we call them 'black sausages' because they're ACTUALLY sausages and not like, dessert.

Pudding doesn't have to be dessert. Take Yorkshire pudding, for example.

I don't remember liking black pudding, but then again I was a kid when I last had it. There's a great chance I'd love it now.

I covered it with "etc" :P

It's pretty nice, yeah. It's a regional thing in Finland - "mustamakkara" is mostly available in a town called Tampere.

Yeah, I've read it on Wiki. Looks like lotsa countries have black pudding, just with different names. And lolz, I remember Tampere from geography class in primary school, along with Turku for some reason. No idea in what connection it was though.

Tampere is the biggest inland city (non-coast, that is) in Finland. Why you'd learn that in Slovakia, no idea, though - we sure as hell didn't learn all of your major cities in school. Turku is the 2nd biggest city - next to Helsinki of course, also former capital.

In Ireland we had a breakfast that contained also something called white pudding. It was like black pudding but white. I was enormously boggled by it.

That'd explain it probably. It's because our geo classes were pretty detailed when it comes to almost every country. I can't imagine anyone would learn about Slovakia though :P

White? I assume it was without the blood then?

I hate hate hate sausage. Italian, breakfast, any. It's just sick.

And pudding is lame. But that's just because it's sweet, haha.

There's another kind of pudding? What is it made out of?? Maybe this was already discussed... I stopped reading when I saw "pudding" because I don't like it, haha.

But it's BLACK. And it has blood in it. How could it taste good? Hmm, I think I should taste it before saying something about it but...I don't think I can taste it unless I'm blind. It's like when pepsi had that blue soda. I couldn't even tasted it.

I was very close to buying black pudding when I was in Stockholm. But then I decided to go for something more traditional (swedish!)...oh how wrong I was :[

Brianna, read all the posts next time. I opened the topic of black pudding by inquiring how come it's called pudding when it's a MEAT product.

Turns out, such is the magical world of English cuisine.

I'm not a huge sausage lover, I've only eaten black pudding like twice.. It was nice enough.

I just realized the reason I didn't read it before. I saw the word blood and got really grossed out. I didn't realize still that it was not sweet, though.
