This post titled, “Stuff to Put on Eggs” from Melissa at The Clothes Make the Girl really excited me as eggs are without a doubt one of my favorite foods. Both delicious and over the top nutritious, I can’t get enough of them. I’m so happy to see them shedding the bad wrap that they received in the past with so many doctors, dietitians and nutritionists are recognizing them for the super food that they are.
Other than overcooking them, there’s not much that can go wrong and with an endless list of collaborative ingredients to either add in or put on top, you’re looking at a lifetime of experimentation that will keep you salivating.
Besides the mayo (I’m not a big fan of mayo), this list is awesome and I’ve tried and loved every one of them. I can think of quite a few other things that I would add to her list, but if I were to start, I’d probably end up with a Top 100 list and still have trouble keeping it to that.
I’ve listed Melissa’s first three items, but be sure to click through to see all of her fantastic ideas. What is your favorite “stuff” to put on eggs?
Excerpt from recipe author:
Oh, how I love an egg fried in sizzling hot coconut oil! The edges crinkle and brown like ruffles, and in just three to four minutes, the yolk reaches the ideal consistency: no longer liquid, but not quite solid. It’s tender and flavorful and luscious.
But you know what makes something good even better? Good stuff on top.
In no particular order, here are 10 recommendations for stuff you can put on top of eggs. Whether you like ‘em fried, scrambled, poached, or folded into an omelet, these toppings will ensure that your humble eggs become something special.
Chopped chives.A generous sprinkle of dried chives, along with salt and pepper, adds a light, oniony kick without being overpowering.
Fresh parsley, crushed red pepper, extra-virgin olive oil.
Instant Italian flair! The bright, grassiness of the parsley is mellowed by the olive oil and gets a zing! from the red pepper.
Homemade mayo, finely minced dill pickles, a sprinkle of paprika.Almost like deviled eggs, only more comforting ’cause they’re warm and luxurious. The contrast of the cool homemade mayo with the warm egg is the secret that makes it irresistible.
