    Not gonna lie... I don't like my eggs runny or slimy... Ever. When I do scrambled, I make them have brown patches from cooking so much. Personal preference.

    Dont use a spatula made of rubber. Even on low heat it can melt. You have to use one made of silicone.

    Alright, I did the Gordon Ramsey eggs and didnt really care for them. But I think my problem was not putting them atop a thick slice of toast. Gonna have to try again. Thanks!

    Eating these recipes while watching these videos is like magic... long as you don't mess it up. I am a millenial so it only took me 30 tries...
    Honestly though, thanks for the help. I've been looking for good egg recipes and this has helped me a lot.

    eggs should be broken on a flat surface, not an edge, to prevent the shell to splinter

    Do a French omelette on a non non-stick pan, and you will have my respect until the end of days...
    By the way, you need to rub the French omelette with butter at the end, come on man.

    I use oil instead of butter, I crack the eggs, put salt in them and then I put them on the pan, very simple,

    Very convenient that this video shows up in my recommends right after I made and ate my own cooked eggs. (Also while I was thinking about how I can be better at it)

    Try a breakfast quesadilla!!!! I sauteed some pickled white onions (with apple cider vinegar) and then followed the recipe for the Gordon Ramsey eggs but then I prepped a tortilla with the leftover butter from the eggs and onions to get it nice and crispy. I plopped the tortilla onto the skillet with half a side covered lightly with mozzarella and let it sit on high heat for about a minute. I then poured the eggs with onions onto the tortilla and quickly folded it, I let it all cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes until I plated the beauty. To give it a nice kick I topped it with a vinegary type hot sauce.

    For a french omlette its way easier to crack like 3 eggs, wait for the bottom to get a bit crispy and fold it over. Idk why everyone always beats their eggs, so much extra work for same pay off.

    When cooking Sunny side up egg after it’s done take your spatula and gently rub it across the top and pull that last layer of white off the top.
