    My favorite way of making scrambled eggs is in a double boiler. Makes incredibly soft creamy eggs.

    I tried eating an egg once, maybe about a year ago. I fried the egg. It tasted like c**. I don't like egg.

    yo, huge fan but your mushroom & spinach omelette looked trash. Super overcooked. It's not supposed to be an egg sandwich with egg as the bun. You're supposed to flip it while there is still uncooked egg on the top so that AFTER you flip it, it becomes one mass and holds itself together. You had 2 thin layers of egg with the fillings in between. The french omelette looked fuego but your other omelette is a straight up 0/10.
    Fuck you

    How did he do the Sunnyside egg without runny whites?

  • My Nontraditional Life

    I was taught to flip sunny side up eggs and briefly cook it on the other side. It was interesting to watch you only cook it on the one side until white all the way through. The scrambled eggs were also so different than how I was taught and now I want to try the creamy version you showed. I feel like I have a lot to unlearn about cooking, but this way is so much better than how I cook.

    Nah dude, you're making eggs way too fancy, just scramble and season or hard fried. You're just making a gooey mess

    It is worth noting that egg yolks should be slightly more orange than a normal large commercial orange, similar to the colour of mango flesh, or a vibrant sunset. A yellow egg is a mark of an unhealthy bird and the more yellow and less orange the yolk, the less healthy and less happy the bird that laid it. I eat cheap, yellow eggs myself, but it should be said on any guide to eggs.

    I had a plan to make sunny side ups, but accidently wisked chopped pepperoni and cheese in a bowl, now its scrambled eggs! Should be interesting...its going on a white toast with sliced tommato and chopped mini cucumber and coffee on the side

    I don't know why, but I leave my eggs on the pan till it had a nice gold brown color on it. I don't like my scrambled eggs runny.

    One of the few times I'll emphatically disagree with Babish, but...
    'Gordon Ramsey Eggs' are disgusting. They have the texture of seasoned vomit. The best scrambled eggs are simple--mix them in a bowl, scramble them in a pan to desired doneness, add salt, pepper, or whatever afterward.
