There’s a First Time for Everything

And last night was my first time making eggs!

I know, I know – I can already hear all the gasps, but let me explain.  Growing up my family always had eggs on hand for baking, hard boiling, etc.  I was never a huge fan of eggs, though I’d eat them when my mom made the random scrambled eggs and pancakes for dinner, or my dad made Sunday brunch with fried eggs on occasion. 

That said, when I moved into my own apartment almost a year ago, I simply never bought eggs!  They were never a staple for me and I certainly never tried making them before, so I just walked right by them in the grocery store.

After noticing the growing trend of eggs around the blogs, I started wondering what I was missing out on.  Matt’s postGreens N’ Eggs” pushed me over the edge… he has a way of making eggs look SO good. 

So the last time I shopped at Whole Foods, I picked up these:

Honestly, this container scared me – how in the world do I make eggs?  I figured there was no better way than to learn than just going ahead a giving it a try, deciding on eggs over easy.  I also had 6 eggs, meaning room to make mistakes. 😉
 

Pan heated and eggs dropped in:

So far so good!  My first flip didn’t go quite as planned and one side of the egg ended up a bit omelet-like, but the second one flipped perfectly.  Practice makes perfect!
 

The finished products:

With organic carrots, organic strawberries, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.

The verdict?  Wow, I was definitely missing out by not having eggs!  They really do taste fantastic and are an awesome nutrition-packed food.  Will they become a staple for me?  Probably not, but I do plan on buying them more often now.  And I think you can guess what I’ll be making for dinner tonight. 😉
  

Are you a fan of eggs?

  2. I’m a fan of eggs 🙂 I especially love egg sandwiches (two toasted pieces of bread with laughing cow cheese spread on them, two eggs mixed together and cooked omelet style in a skillet with a little coconut oil, served with some ketchup … it’s a good combo, I promise!)

  3. You know I love eggs 😉 Those look great!

  4. I love eggs over easy but all I’ve ever tried to make are scrambled eggs. Maybe I’ll step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at over easy now!

  5. Nice job and kudos for trying something new! My extent of cooking eggs = microwave haha. In fact, I just had some eggs today for lunch! 😀 yummy!

  6. ahahh perfect egg making for a first time!!!! those are pro!

  7. I have never tried eggs before either. It’s one of those foods that i am scared of, but I have no reason why! Maybe I should take the plunge too ha ha

  8. Yay, welcome to the egg loving world. They’re indeed nutritious and egg-cellent tasting. Now it’s just time to try them with sauteed kale 🙂

  9. *gasp* lol!
    i’m glad that you were successful at your first attempt, because i try to make eggs overeasy all the time and i can’t seem to get it right!
    welcome to the egg bandwagon, haha!

  10. i really don’t like eggs so there’s no judgment about you not cooking them before!

  11. Synchronicity reigns! I don’t eat eggs except cooked in other things but I’ve recently come to a decision about the eggs I do buy. They must come from humanely raised chickens. Just a couple of days ago I wrote a post about it. Glad you enjoyed yours.

  12. I eat eggs every day. Every single day at least once in some way…I’ve even gotten to the point of buying 30 at a time and go through them in a few days! haha
