better than green eggs (& ham)

In an effort to try new things, I was surprised to find that someone had only ever eaten an egg scrambled. This had to be remedied. And fast.
Instead of hitting up Louie's (the best diner EVER) for all things wonderful, we decided to go ahead and make them ourselves. While quite the entertainment, I think next time I'll just go and
order my scrambled egg with spinach and swiss cheese.
There's something about eating eggs in deliciously greasy and wonderfully packed diners at random hours of the day that just sounds good to me.

Here's our very own eggventure...
(props Eric for the pun)

You've got your basic: Fried Egg

Heat pan to Medium
When hot, add 1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter.
As soon as butter is melted, crack your egg.
Watch the magic happen.
Leave yolk for bread soaking if you wish.
Sprinkle S&P

(There's just something about butter...)

Then there's your Scrambled Egg.

(Scrambled eggs go better with cheese I think)

Crack 2 eggs in a bowl, add 1 tablespoon milk.
Lightly wisk.
Add cheddar cheese...parmesan cheese...whatever you like cheese..
Wisk together adding S&P. Pour in pan.
Keep stirring til cooked how you like them.


Of course you've got your Omelette.

Crack 3 eggs in a bowl.
Add 2 tablespoons sour cream
(I like sour cream...but milk works too)
Get creative!
We added tomatoes, portabello mushrooms, orange bell pepper, green onion, potato, spinach, atlantique cheese.
Add S&P
Pour into a pan that is large enough to accommodate the entire mixture.
Let sit until it's ready to fold.
(Roughly 5 minutes for ours)

It should be noted that yes, we know. We consumed a lot of protein. Along with the chocolate milk & peppered bacon, we're probably set for life...

However, we still had more more egg adventure to go on.

French Toast, my friend. French Toast.

My favorite bargain at Whole Foods is the .99 cent French Boule (we asked the bread guy, it's pronounced Boo-lei). Get them to slice it & it's instant goodness.

Crack an egg in a bowl.
Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Wisk with fork.
Cover your bread.Grill in pan on medium heat.

...Add some sliced fruit in the pan as you're grilling the bread
for something that isn't carb or egg (:

So. I'm pretty egged out now, but I'd say it was worth it.

Tell me something,
How do you like your eggs?


  1. This post reminds me of the movie Runaway Bride, where Julia Roberts' character keeps changing her mind about how she likes her eggs! :) I am definitely going to be having eggs for breakfast tomorrow!

  3. Love it!! Oh, he's also had hard boiled eggs! :)

  4. Whether by choice or oversight you missed a great opportunity for a pun in your first caption. With mine and Ally's brand of humor I read it "Here's our very own eggventure..."

    Well done! It all looks delicious and it's good to see the blog is still alive!
