They’re a versatile ingredient.

You can make all sorts of culinary delights with the humble egg — French toast, omelettes, huevos rancheros — and you can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

But which type of egg is the best egg? Scrambled, boiled, fried or poached?

Let’s investigate.

Scrambled eggs

When they’re done right, they’re absolutely delicious — a comforting breakfast like no other.

Buttime it wrong and you could end up with a gloopy mess on your plate.

Or, worse, this:

And there’s nothing more disappointing than bad scrambled eggs.

Как и зачем использовать два вида соли? Все очень просто: каждая соль подчеркнет какой-то свой компонент блюда. Например, в этом сандвиче использованы адыгейская и копченая на яблоне. Порядок слоев: пита, плавленный сыр, адыгейская соль, яйцо, авокадо, копченая соль, соус шрирача и закрывающий кусок питы. Острота от соуса будет сочетаться с маслянистым вкусом авокадо, копченая соль - с авокадо и яйцом, а в конце появится нотка специй от помидор с адыгейской солью. Приятного аппетита! #850оттенковяичницы #avocado #friedegg #srirachasauce #applewoodsmokedsalt #adygeyskayasalt #tomato #breakfast Source: saltmakers_ru


Boiled egg

The boiled egg is an old reliable.

You can eat it for breakast, throw it into a salad or put it in a sandwich.

But they also smell rank and have ruined many a bus journey.

So there’s that.

Poached eggs

Poached eggs are undoubtedly delicious and a solid brunch choice.

But they’re also a little bit notions-y and difficult to perfect at home, meaning you probably have to pay €11 to enjoy a decent one.

So, tell us, Ireland: which egg do you prefer?
