we realised it has been some time now that we gave any techniques on cooking...we are sure eggs are a favourite of many(of course non vegetarians). we love eggs...so here
Rule#1 in Cooking Eggs: No salt until after they are cooked.
The first thing about eggs is, no matter what you have heard, it is never a good idea to salt eggs before or during cooking. It is very important that eggs be salted only after the eggs have cooked. This is because adding salt while cooking will make the eggs lose moisture and become rubbery.
The easiest and perhaps simplest and most delicious egg dish of all!
For one serving:
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium size non-stick pan.
Break open 2 eggs into pan after butter has melted.
With a smooth spatula or wooden spoon, break open yolks and mix eggs around until eggs are cooked to how you like them!
Sunny Side Up or Over-Easy
For traditional sunny-side up eggs, melt 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter in a 8-inch non-stick omelet pan or skillet over medium heat. Break open eggs into pan and immediately reduce heat to low. Cook slowly until the whites are completely set and the yolks begins to thicken, but are not hard. For over easy-eggs flip over for 15 seconds. Serve eggs right away and enjoy!
Hard Boiled Eggs
To hard cook eggs, place eggs in enough COLD water to cover completely, bring to a ROLLING boil over HIGH heat; then reduce heat to a lower MEDIUM boil for an additional 12 minutes. Promptly chill eggs in ICE WATER to chill promptly so egg yolks remain nice and bright yellow.
Hard boiled eggs are good for one week if kept in the shell, in the refrigerator.
Having a hard time peeling the eggs?
Extremely fresh eggs will not peel easily. In fact, an egg that is just a day or two old is almost impossible to peel. As eggs age, the shells will peel more easily. It is advisable that eggs used for hard cooking (including Easter Eggs) be at least 2 weeks old before cooking for easiest peeling.
