Egg Thread the Third - How do you like your eggs, and why?

I recently decided to learn how to poach eggs and now my third eye had opened and so many opportunities have been presented to me. My chicken tortilla instant noodles and microwaveable teriyaki bowls are now fancy. I thought for some reason that it would be really hard but I found it pretty simple.

I recently made a delicious McMuffin type sammich with some toasted english muffins, chedder cheese, a Jimmy Dean sausage patty, and a beautiful poached egg. Plus a splash of Cholula hot sauce.
I've been experimenting a bit with the cooking times, I find that 6 minutes is giving me the best result though I would like to try less to get a runnier yolk.

Through daily practice, I've perfected frypoached eggs. Best of both worlds if you ask me, fried & poached!
How do you do that? Do you do an initial poaching and then put it in a pan to get crispy? That sounds like it would be tasty.

My breakfast starts with frying sausage in a skillet. This allows me to create a well-oiled&seasoned, and hot iron to work with. I also keep a glass bottle nearby filled with a water&vinegar&salt solution. After pouring out the excess sausage grease, break the egg(s) onto the hot skillet (over a low to medium heat burner), then dash some of the brinewater over the egg and into the pan(>1Tbsp/egg), and cover the skillet with a plate to allow the pan to steam. Run a timer for 60 seconds for one egg, 90-120 seconds for two, before carefully flipping the eggs if the white seems too soft for your liking and giving it another 10-15 seconds of heat.

Then, carefully spatula the eggs onto a paper towel to drain or pat dry before placing on a slice of toast, seasoned with black pepper and green onions to taste.

Over medium with black pepper and Tabasco. Simple and tastes good. Give me a couple pieces of toast and a few sausage links or strips of crispy bacon on the side and I'm set.

There's a way to make eggs in the microwave using a coffee mug, no-stick spray, and a stirred egg. I forget how long to cook for.
 
usually four jumbo scrambled eggs cooked with one eighth stick of butter and three big black dick patties and some pepper on top. but not when I can get 4 egg mcmuffins for $8 every day instead.

the egg doesn't even need to be stirred, just stab the yolk with a fork so it doesn't explode.

Poached or over easy eggs on buttered toast with salt, pepper and a chilli-garlic sauce makes my day. Great for breakfast or a lazy dinner.

My breakfast often consists of 2 or 3 eggs with salt and cracked pepper, whipped with a fork, and then fried until it's just firm enough not to spill all over the plate. If I'm feeling lazy, it's just cereal.

Okay, I'll bite. What's a dick patty?

I love an over easy egg. I used to think the concept was gross but I'm all for it now. Especially on a burger, yummy. Also scotch eggs are bomb dot com.

After having put off making one for a solid decade I finally gave in to curiosity and made a bigass spanish omelette.

Nothing fancy, just some good eggs, some good potatoes, and some good onions seasoned simply with salt and pepper and a half teaspoon of the sugar/msg mix I use to perk up half the shit I cook.

Pre-cooked the potats in the microwave for three minutes then chopped into small chunks, and minced the onion into equally sized chunks and caramelised both in a generous glug of olive oil over medium heat for half an hour, stirring up every five minutes to ensure a decent browning/crisping. Took vegetables out the pan, waited till cooled down to warm, and then mixed in the eggs and let sit for ten minutes to congeal a bit, then dumped it into the pan with the olive oil, still on medium heat, and cooked for five minutes until the bottom was browning at which point I put it under a medium high grill for another five minutes.

Served with a glob of creme fraiche because I remembered that south park episode and had some on hand, and it was absolutely fucking delicious. Would recommend to anyone who likes eggs, though you should probably make bigass servings to justify the hour or so prep+cooking since you will then have leftovers for a few more meals
