I had something for dim sum the other day that may become my new favourite way of having eggs.  It was like a BBQ pork bun, but with a sweet egg yolk custard, so the whole thing looked like a giant hard boiled egg. Best breakfast ever.

Ooooh, eggs! I answered poached, since I eat them at least once a week, but egg in the hole, or what my family used to call toad in the hole, is my go-to camping breakfast. So easy and delicious and one pan. And of course, I toast the bread hole piece. :D

I am particularly fond of Çilbir:

Quote
2 1/4 cups thick, plain yogurt
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2-3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
4 extra-large eggs
1-2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Turkish red pepper or paprika
A few dried sage leaves, crumbled
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Beat the yogurt with the crushed garlic. Spoon onto plates, spreading it in neat circle to create a thick mattress for the eggs. Serve at room temperature as a contrast to the hot eggs. (Alternatively, heat it by placing the dish in a cooling oven, or by sitting it in a covered pan of hot water.)

Fill a pan with water, add the vinegar to seal the egg whites, and bring to a rolling boil. Stir the water with a spoon to create a whirlpool and crack the first egg. As the egg spins and the white sets around the yolk, stir the water for the next one. Poach each egg for 2-3 minutes so the yolk is still soft.

Lift the eggs out of the water with a slotted spoon and place them on the yogurt.

Quickly melt the butter in a small pan. Stir in the red pepper or paprika and sage leaves, then spoon over the eggs. Serve immediately.

You wouldn't think this would taste as good as it does--but it does.

Note: Sometimes I add a bit of ground sage and leave out the salt and pepper when I am cooking for one, I use one large egg and cut the rest of the ingredients to half or less the called-for amounts.

The poll is flawed, since only one answer is possible.

I decided to go with other, and clarify that by that I mean all of the above.

How I like them depends mostly on my mood and possibly what i will have with them.

A flawed poll.  Gasp!  :o

I just didn't see a need to add categories such as "all of the above, some of the above," etc.  The question refered to a preference.  If someone likes scrambled eggs it doesn't mean thet can't also sometimes like a boiled egg.

I love eggs.

I like them:
  • scrambled
  • part of an omelet
  • fried (over easy)
  • fried (sunny side up)
  • poached .... mmm, Eggs Benedict
  • deviled
  • in egg salad

My kids like them pretty much the same way,  except none of them are much for sunny side up.

Me too! Eggs are like a magical, wonder-food! I looooooove them.

I'll eat them everyway possible but my faves are down to two: sunny-side-up with toast or in an omelette.

Note to self: Don't read this thread shortly before lunch.  Looks like some sort of egg dish is on the menu again today.

Also, I came up with a better answer for how I like my eggs than I posed before.  How do I like my eggs?  Cooked!

I voted 'other' because I like my eggs cooked.  Any way I can get them.
I call them 'the perfect little protein package'.

More flaws in the poll.  Guess I should have included "cooked" and "raw".  ;D

No, not really. I just have a terrible time when I go to Egg Haven or the like deciding what I want. Maybe they should have and "eggs 3 ways" plate or something like that.

I usually order breakfast when we to go a "breakfast all day" place, even at the evening meal.

Sunny side up with toast for popping and sopping.

I gave into temptation.  I made bacon, fried egg and cheese sandwiches for lunch.  Everybody in the house is now happy.  Well, except the dogs.  The dogs didn't get any bacon.

I will say that I've become an egg snob by accident. I tried an ordinary, hard boiled egg (and I have always loved homemade hard boiled eggs) at work last week, and I was completely put off. Either it was 'off' in some real way, or I only like eggs from nice farms where the chickens get good food, now.

I eat eggs in many forms;
Omelettes (as long as they are not runny)
Over medium (preferably cooked in bacon grease, butter will do)
Scrambled medium with cheese and salsa
Hard-boiled
Deviled
in Tuna salad
Breakfast casserole
Fritatta
Quiche

Basted.

You can still have a nice runny yolk while the egg white is cooked all the way through (no runny white on top.)

Especially yummy when cooked in bacon grease and the edges of the white gets crispy.

We call those edges lacy and it is a requirement at my house!
