When Nothing Sounds Good..Fix Some Eggs!



We have had a goofy schedule lately...nothing requires less planning than eggs for a meal! I made a rather homely cheese omelet, but tasted great! Today, I found out my wife was working 2nd shift on a Saturday, so I fixed myself something she would never eat- sunny side up eggs! Eggs are cheap, tasty, and are a healthy form of protein. Studies have proven they aren't the heart attack bomb everyone thought they were 10years ago... They are versatile, and can be used in cooking, baking, or stand alone for a meal! Looks like a brunch tomorrow, and I'm sure eggs will be somewhere in or on the menu!
P.S.- Can anyone tell I like Black pepper?

I so agree Buff, eggs are good. I have them at least twice each week and I can find a zillion ways to use them and even though they have at least double in price over the last few months they are still a good deal especially when one considers the protein value of an egg.

Your eggs look darned good to me. A bit black...teeheehee

I see you eat the sunnys on top of your toast. My mom always made poached eggs and ate them that way and of course the kids thought it was way cool when I'd cut a whole in the center of a piece of bread and fry the egg and bread together. They called them egg baskets. Sunny eggs were called (and still are) dunkin' eggs since they dunked their toast in the yolks.

Yeah Bud, what's up with the pepper fetish, eh? LMAO
J-

J.J.- I like peppered eggs, and do admit to getting carried away with it!

Chef E said...

I love pepper! I am like the person who sits, and before they even taste the food grabs the salt- I am looking for the pepper shaker and hot sauce!

Sounds great to me- hubby has to go away for a few days- yeah I had him picked up, lol, so I am making these for a few lunches! He is the one with high cholesterol!

sheri said...

oh yeah, i'm with you on the pepper! i've never been much on eggs but there are times when a fried egg sandwich with plenty of pepper is the only thing that will hit the spot!

buffalodick said...

ChefE- When my wife isn't here, my taste buds go to what I like!
sheri- I like eggs, and they need flavorings! Making home made bread today!

sage said...

as I don't know what's for dinner, it might be eggs with grits and toast...

doggybloggy said...

Me = eggs - but I think we know that -

buffalodick said...

sage- I go to eggs when I don't know what to fix!
DogB- I know you like them too!

Pam said...

I thought that was some herbs on the eggs!! You do Like black pepper!

Kate said...

I think one of the first posts on my cooking blog was a fried egg sandwich. YUMMMMM! I'm still no good at sunny side up, though. I haven't mastered the "Add a little water and put on a lid" thing.

buffalodick said...

Pam- Eggs are kind of bland, and black pepper is just enough heat.. I also add Tabasco sauce most of the time..
Kate- If I was going for pretty, I would do the water trick..

Realliveman said...

I agree. Eggs are the Savior of food.

Akelamalu said...

When a quick tasty meal is wanted eggs deliver every time!

Lea Ann said...

And I thought I peppered the heck out of eggs....

Marjie said...

I like a good amount of black pepper, too. Good use of those eggs.

blueviolet said...

I love loading pepper on things too. I use it rather than salt and it's a great substitute for flavor, I think.

G-Man said...

Over easy, sunny side up, scrambled, benedicted, basted, omeletted, poached, hard boiled, 3 minute, quiched, fritated, Ya gotta love em....

Jeanne said...

Jingle said...

Just telling it like it is said...

I agree for you...as long as you don't have high cholesterol without being medicated...it is all good

Jeff B said...

The black pepper I could do, but I'm over easy to medium egg kind of guy.

Sook said...

I am going to take your advice and fix some eggs when I don't have much of an appetite. It's been happening more often lately since it's so hot around here... :)

John McElveen said...

Eggs are totally healthy just like Butter. (Most of the Stuff God made is- (Or your Deity of Choice).

Margarine is one chemical ring away from PLASTIC! True stuff! It'll kill ya!

Those Eggs on a dark piece of Toast With Red-Neck Pepper! OMG!!

Awesome!

All Our Fingers in the Pie said...

I love my eggs, too. I often boil one for my lunch.

buffalodick said...

R.L.M.- Had some more Sunday at a brunch we fixed for my son's girlfriend's birthday..

buffalodick said...

Ake- Slipped in while I was returning comments!

buffalodick said...

I should post a photo of bread...before I make a pudding out of it!

Ily said...

You know you have a gift for food when you can make sunny side up eggs look mouthwatering! OMG!!

When I was a kid and we had little money our big meal was fried eggs over white rice. (There was always money for white rice!!!) lol

drollgirl said...

bah! i think i like black pepper even MORE than you do. for reals.

Sadako said...

Mmm. This makes me want eggs.

Chris said...

ACHOO!

ACHOO!

:)

The ongoing standoff in our family is the boys like more salt than I do but I like more pepper than they do. I'm the cook, guess who wins out :)

buffalodick said...

Ily- Rice and eggs are both bargains!
drollgirl- Welcome! There are more black pepper fans than I thought!
Sadako- Welcome! Pork roast tonight...
Chris- I like them both, but I go easier on the salt these days..

Mona said...

I agree, Eggs are cheap & best! & less labor extensive too!

buffalodick said...

Mona- Half a world away, yet so close to me...

LaDivaCucina said...

Well, you know how I feel about eggs! LOVE "EM! I've been interviewed a few times in the past few weeks and they keep asking me my fave comfort food: eggs and potatoes!

Intense Guy said...

Nothing like some eggs to go with your black pepper....

:)

buffalodick said...

Diva- I had a post on turkey eggs a while back...hard to come by, but delicious!
I.G.- Eggs are bland, and need a helping hand!

LaDivaCucina said...

Really? Turkey eggs? They were selling giant goose eggs at the Farmer's market but I was not game to try at the time!

Ally said...

Aww, this made me a slightly sad in a good way though. My dad wasn't much for cooking when we were kids. He always made us this late night snack of fried eggs with a TON of pepper. I remember the taste like it was yesterday. Are you very against egg beaters or a combo of whites mixed with less yokes (like 1 whole egg+1 white?) ... my nutritionist told me that I should limit myself to 3 eggs per week because I have high cholesterol in my family :( They are all on meds in their 60s. I could live on eggs, but she says to watch it.

buffalodick said...

Diva- They were great- and huge!
Ally- I love them, but really don't eat them everyday!

Vickie said...

I love my black pepper grinder, too. And I agree that eggs are a great source of protein . . . and they taste great to boot. :)
