I saw the sign above as soon as we were seated in a restaurant. This post is about the delicious food made with eggs. I believe a great breakfast can make a great day.
Now these days, many hotels offer continental breakfast with an array of choices. The combination of scrambled eggs and bacon can wake you up instantly.
Some hotel restaurants serve egg omelet and you get to choose stuff to fill in. The other day, I ordered an omelet with spinach, mushrooms, bacon, and cheese, and I thought I was eating healthy.
This one was covered with a lot of cheese and cooked with butter…
This pork belly omelet (below) topped with sweet onion, green onion, and cilantro and delicious Latin sauce was recommended by a lady who sat next to us in the restaurant. Hubby placed the order without any hesitation. When it was brought to our table, he indulged without a word the entire time. I asked him how it tasted, he didn’t even hear.
Hubby likes croissant a lot and loves omelet. So this croissomelet sandwich made him double happy.
I always order crepe at a local French restaurant.
When I have time, I like to cook a poached egg. I can’t make a perfect poached egg though.
Here are the tips from Chef Alton Brown of making perfect poached eggs:
“1 and half inch water, no less and no more. Heat the water in pan to 189 F degree and cook under 189 degree for 4 and half minutes, no less, no more.” Pretty precise.
As of September 2016, organic and cage-free shell egg production accounted for 12.5% of current table egg layer flock (37.6 million hens). Of this, 4.7% are organic (14.1 million hens) and 7.8% are cage-free (23.5 million hens).
Currently (according to the American Egg Board), the top 10 egg producing states (ranked by number of hens represented in thousands) are:
