Eggs, eggs and even more on eggs! I have written and filmed quite a bit about eggs. Today there is yet a new addition to the egg story – a video on How to Fry an Egg.
The Egg Round-up
The starting points for a new cook that I have already covered on this site are:
Technically speaking, a hard or soft “boiled” egg” should actually be called a (hard or soft) “cooked” egg. However, I intentionally used the term “boiled” since that is the term most beginner cooks will recognize.
Many people wrote in to ask me how to make a “soft-boiled” egg. I was so busy making the hard-boiled, I forgot all about the soft-boiled egg!
Follow the directions in the video of How to Boil an Egg BUT after the water boils, turn the heat down to simmer and continue cooking the eggs for between 3-5 minutes. The size of your egg and how “runny” you like the yolk will determine cooking time. You will probably have to do a trial run to see what works for you!
Separating the yolk from the white part of the egg is an important thing to learn, as many recipes call for just the white part of the egg and other recipes have you add extra yolks.
For experienced cooks, cracking an egg is second nature. For new cooks, it can be a bit nerve-wracking. My video on Cracking and Separating Eggs has some great tips that will help the beginner.
As for Scrambled Eggs, I really keep thinking I should re-do that post. The information is great but, that’s the post where I dropped my camera in the bowl of raw eggs! The photos work but they are a bit hazy.
My Quiche video and the Sausage and Egg bake video are recipes that never go out of style. Quiche is my very favorite thing to serve to company. All the different parts can get prepared in advance. Then it is just a matter of assembling it and baking it!
