    Dec 28,2007

    Ingredients :

    · 2-4 eggs
    · water, for boiling

    Cooking Procedures :

    1. Fill a medium bowl with iced water. Set aside.
    2. Fill a large wide saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and bring to a good simmer. Make sure there is at least 6 inches of water for the eggs to poach There may be some eggs that fall apart, so it is best to do a few extra here. Take each egg and lay it in your hand on a towel. With a knife, cut off the thick end of the shell, making a large enough hole for the egg and yolk to come out of. Then, pour the eggs carefully into the simmering water (or break an egg at a time into a small heatproof bowl; gently tip the bowl into the water and letting the egg slip into the simmering water). Repeat with remaining eggs.
    3. It should take about 2 to 3 minutes to cook, until the whites becomes opaque and are set but the yolks are still runny. Carefully remove egg with a slotted spoon and plunge them into iced water to stop cooking.
    4. Trim edges with a small knife or scissors to create a uniform shape. Transfer to a serving dish.

    Ingredients :

    · eggs
    · butter (or bacon fat or vegetable oil)
    · salt and pepper

    Cooking Procedures :

    1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add butter (or bacon fat or oil). When it is moderately hot, break egg and add into the skillet (or by using a saucer – slip into skillet). Season with salt and pepper.
    2. Reduce heat to low. Cook slowly, spooning fat over egg until whites are set and a film forms over yolks and the bottom is lightly brown for about 3 to 4 minutes. You can turn over the egg, if you like. Cook until yolks are, as you want them.
    3. Remove egg and drain with paper towels. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve immediately.

    Helpful Tips
    – It is easier to keep the yolks whole if you slip the eggs one at a time from a saucer into the skillet.

    • 1/2 ts Salt

    hardboiled eggs
    mustard (can even be Dijon or other flavored mustards if you like)
    mayonnaise

    To hard boil the eggs, put the eggs in a large saucepan, and fill with water until the eggs are fully covered. Put the full pan on the stove and bring to a boil over medium heat. As soon as it reaches a rolling boil, remove from heat, still covered, and let stand covered for 20 minutes. As soon as the 20 minutes is up, run cool water over the eggs so they stop cooking. Once cool, refrigerate until ready to use.

    Peel the hardboiled eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Gently pop out the yolks into a separate bowl. Once all the yolks are in the same bowl, add some mustard and a little mayonnaise to taste just so the mixture sticks together. Blend with a fork, then put the yolk mixture back in the hollows of the egg halves. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
