A few minutes ago I asked my husband if he would like me to make him some eggs for breakfast.
"No, I'll do it"
My husband was never taught how to cook, but he's always willing to try.
So, I stood in the doorway of the kitchen and watched him beat the eggs with a fork, gently.
Caressing them with the tines.
"No, no, no. You've got to do it hard and fast."
"Pretend they're your wife."

Yeah, but if you go too hard and fast, there's always the danger of premature yolking.

I just need to know if you prefer it over easy or sunny side up ...

... and if he can't beat your eggs, I'd be glad to poach ...

I bet after the eggs, you could put a spatula to good use.

Commented by Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes:

Spatula gets all the press, 'cause it's so glamorous, but it's really the whisk you want, maybe combined with a bit of cheese grater if you like it rough.

And few appreciate the subtle magic of the rolling pin. But don't get me started...

I'm just wondering... do you put cream in your eggs before you scramble them?

Commented by Blogger Torrie:

You guys are getting me all hot and bothered.
Bucky, I'm still removing the splinters.
Future Food, no cream or milk, just water. I've read that cream or milk weighs the eggs down, makes them dense.
The water makes them fluffy.
The best cookbook that explains stuff like that is called The Best Recipe. It's by the people who make Cooks Illustrated Magazine.
