How to Cook Eggs: 10 Ways!

There are so many ways to cook eggs that it can be hard to know where to start. Here we will explore ten different methods for preparing this delicious food. Whether you like your eggs boiled, fried, scrambled, or poached, we have a method for you! So get ready to learn new cooking techniques and add some delicious eggs to your breakfast repertoire.

1) Sunny-side up

This is the simplest way to cook an egg. Just heat some oil or butter in a pan, crack an egg, and let it cook until the whites are set and the yolk is cooked to your liking. Don't forget to season with some salt and pepper!

2) Scrambled

Scrambled eggs are a classic breakfast dish. To make them, whisk some eggs in a bowl with milk (or water), seasonings, and either oil or butter. Then cook them in a pan over low heat until they're firm but still moist.

3) Over easy/medium/hard

If you like your yolks runny, then cooking your eggs "over easy" is the way to go. Just fry up your eggs as you would for sunny-side up, but when they're almost done, flip them over and let them cook for a few more seconds on the other side. For "over medium," let them cook a bit longer on the first side before flipping; for "over hard," let them cook until the yolk is firm all the way through.

4) Poached

Poached eggs are cooked in simmering water instead of in a pan. To poach an egg, crack it into a bowl and gently lower it into simmering water using a spoon. Cook for two to three minutes until the whites are set, and the yolk is cooked to your liking.

5) Baked

Baked eggs are great if you're feeding a crowd or just looking for an easy way to make eggs! Just grease a baking dish (or two) with some butter or oil, crack in your eggs, season with salt and pepper (and any other herbs or spices you like), and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your liking, usually about 15 minutes.

6) Deviled

Deviled eggs are a delicious appetizer or snack that is perfect for parties and they are pretty easy to make at home! Just hard-boil some eggs (six should do it), cut them in half lengthwise, and scoop the yolks into a bowl. Mash the yolks with some mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper (and any other seasonings you like), then spoon the mixture into the egg halves. Garnish with paprika or parsley, if desired-then enjoy!

7) Omelet

An omelet is just a giant scrambled egg filled with all sorts of delicious things-like cheese, ham, veggies, etc. then rolled up and served hot off the skillet. To make an omelet, start by whisking together some eggs with the milk (or water) and seasonings and then add in your desired fillings. Next, heat some butter or oil in a skillet over medium heat, pour in your egg mixture, and let it cook until the edges are set. Then use a spatula to fold one side of the omelet over the filling (think burrito-style). Let it cook for another minute or two on each side and then slide it onto a plate and enjoy!

8) Quiche

Quiche is another great way to cook eggs! You can make a quiche with almost any combination of ingredients, so get creative!

To make a quiche, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then, line a baking dish with a piecrust. Once the crust is in the dish, add your desired fillings. Next, beat some eggs and milk, and pour the mixture over the fillings. Bake the quiche for about 30 minutes or until the egg mixture is set.

9) Frittata

A frittata is like a quiche but without the crust. So it's just a big omelet filled with delicious things like cheese, ham, veggies, etc. and then baked in the oven until firm. To make a frittata at home, start by whisking together some eggs with the milk (or water) and seasonings, then add in your desired fillings. Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until firm, usually about 15 to 20 minutes. Let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.

10) Egg salad

Egg salad is a great way to use up leftover hard-boiled eggs. Just chop up the eggs (yolks and whites), and mix them with some mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper (and any other seasonings you like). Serve on bread, crackers, or celery sticks-or eat it straight up!
