    My chickens free range. They eat very little feed in the spring and summer months. They will eat bugs, mice, snakes, worms, songbird chicks that fall from nests...little velocitrapors.

    The yolks are almost orange.

    I had a small flock whose sole function was to debug the garden...during hopper season, three of them would work the rows...one on either side and another up the middle...as described...little velociraptors...voracious hunters that did a great job....

    Aside from scratch grain and laying mash, my wife fed her birds cooked oatmeal with apples and raisins (warm during the winter months) daily....certainly went a long way towards the quality of the eggs.

    When we first got this batch, we fed them a bag of scratch feed that was given to us and we kept them in the coop for about a month so that they would home in on it and the yolks were yellow and they tasted like store bought eggs. Now they roam the property by day and stay mostly around the garden, house, and pasture. Their diet is bugs and cracked corn and the yolks are orange and Rich. With six horses, they discovered that horse poop harbors lots of bugs and they don't turn their noses (beaks) up at fire ants either. When they stand over a mound, the ants stream out to attack the disturbance and they just pick them off as they come out.

    I'm like most of ya'll and like eggs pretty much every way but raw. I'll take over easy most of the time. One of my favorites is scrambled with shredded brisket, onions, jalapenos and diced tomato. I like egg salad, pickled and deviled eggs, too. But people around me afterward don't really care for it as much.

    I use the same type of round-sided aluminum pan the diner-style restaurants like Waffle House have. When clean and well-lubed with bacon grease or Pam, etc. the eggs slide around easily and turn over with a quick flip of the wrist- - - -no turner needed! I also use a tight-fitting lid and add about 3 or 4 drops of water to steam the whites quickly before flipping the eggs. Mary gets very frustrated with my technique- - - -she can't get the wrist flip right. I guess running a grill at breakfast time at the diner across the street from a college dorm taught me a thing or two about preparing a couple of hundred breakfasts every morning!

    You should have said something, I suck at cooking eggs. I am pretty good at eating them. I grew up eating the eggs that wouldn't sell so they always got cooked over hard. I made a breakfast pizza the other night and am having a piece each morning for breakfast and it is good and quick. Jerm you may have to bring me something, I have not seen those around here but I am going to look, thanks.

    Scrambled or fried over-medium in bacon grease. Sometimes I'll whip a tablespoon of good quality ricotta into the scrambled eggs, cook them up, and top them with shredded Parmesan cheese.

    Add some fresh sourdough toast and call it done!

    Walmart has them around here, and a few other grocery stores. If you can't find those, La Banderita and Mission also make low carb tortillas. They are all pretty decent.

    Dan's farmer scramble....

    One medium to small red potato diced into 1/4 inch cubes
    One slice vidalia onion chopped medium to fine
    1/2 stalk of celery chopped thin
    Three eggs, scrambled in a bowl with two ounces whole milk
    Tablespoon of margarine
    Cheddar cheese, two slices
    Salt and pepper.

    In a large skillet, grease with 1 tablespoon margarine and heat to medium / medium high

    Place potatoes, onion and celery in pan and cover, heat for 6 minutes, turn over all and heat another six minutes. Potatoes should be browned, celery soft and onions clear.

    Reduce heat to medium

    And salt and pepper to taste to raw scrambled eggs. Pour over potatoes, celery and onions. Let cook for four minutes with lid on pan. Cover with two slices of cheddar cheese and let cook until eggs are hard. Fold over into omelette and serve hot.

    Late winter/spring this year, our local Kroger for some reason made gallons of milk $1.05 and large eggs 49 cents a dozen. Even better, medium eggs were 39 cents a dozen. We ate a lot of eggs earlier this year. The kids got good at cooking them they ways they like them too.

    My personal favorite is a ham, cheese, and mushroom omelet. Last year for Easter, I did brunch for the extended family and made scrambled eggs in the oven. I broke open about 3 1/2 dozen eggs, then got out the stick blender and blended in 2 sticks of melted butter, a pint of whipping cream, and a pint of melted bacon grease. Those turned out excellent.

    Another favorite is whats known as a meat, egg, heavy whipping cream and cheese pie. All those items placed in a pie crust and baked.

    So you're going around the barn in telling us you like quiche...what a pansy...just come out and say it man! Oh...and turn in your man card by the end of the week...

    Technique? Either cast iron or a griddle top, bacon grease, butter... or both, and one of these...

    It doesn't have to be that specific one, but that 8x3 shape with the rounded edges and a flexible blade. I am lost without one. Burgers, sandwiches, pancakes, sunny side up, scrambled, over easy, omelets... that type of turner is the secret to my success.

    Hey Bro, I shoulda known if anybody here could cook eggs it was gonna be you. I have one of those spatulas. And I also use a griddle top. Only difference I cook breakfast with coconut oil. What I like is over hard. But I don't like to kill it. I've got my timing down to where I break the egg and how to lay it on the griddle. I don't mind if it breaks the yoke, and then I know just when to flip it. I like it fried hard but just hard, not rock hard, kinda fluffy hard. Also, I love to eat this 5-7 days a week. I know the yellow of an egg is a pretty good heart plugger, so I bust the yoke and let half the yoke run out on the griddle. I cook it and give it to the cat.

    As for bread, I love my Roti Canai, the Malaysian bread that appears to be a tortilla, but is actually more like an indian bread. It's made in several layers of thin dough and it puffs up. I cook a roti, you gotta cook these things, they're not like a tortilla which you just heat up. One of these with good fresh coffee is really a great breakfast for me.

    One of the most exciting ways to cook eggs is take them straight out of the carton and place them in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. No need to crack it, just put it straight in!

    Yeah, I bet! Don't forget the flack jacket...

    Over easy, basted in Fraboni Garlic Sausage grease, poached on toast, or in some Quiche.

    Hard boiled or scrambled usually. I have 3 hard boiled eggs and some oatmeal every morning for breakfast.

    And 99% of men who like eggs would also. But when you tell them it's quiche, they turn up their nose. Tell them it's meat egg and cheese pie, and they'll try it.

    I forgot about quiche. I like it fine, with a little doctoring up. It's good when cold, also. I usually finish off any leftovers, later in the day. I like it straight out of the refrigerator, with cayenne pepper added to give it a little zing.

    All kinds of ways. Just no soft boiled or poached. When I was a kid, loved them, scrambled with a can of pork brains. Like them in a pan of hash. Favorite way is either scrambled or a omelet, covered with sausage gravy.


    Just a light breakfast, at Doug's Motor City Bar & Grill.

    Country ham, 2 eggs (scrambled), Hash Browns (with onions), 2 biscuits, sausage gravy, butter and jelly.

    I forgot about that one, I like to take a skillet of corned beef hash and cook some of the water out and break about half a dozen eggs on top of it and put the lid on till the whites are cooked. I can just about eat the whole pan full.

    All this talk about eggs has me thinking that it's time to dig out Teach's pickled eggs recipe. I've probably made 20 jars of those in the last couple of years.

    Did anyone mention chorizo and eggs?

    One of my favorites.

    I didn't consider that one. I do love chorizo and egg burritos. But, gotta be good chorizo. Not the "beef, chicken and pork" chorizo. 100% beef chorizo for me.

    The new restaurant that is at the hotel that we stay at during the SE shoot has chorizo in a lot of their breakfast items. I had a chorizo and egg burrito that was pretty dang good and you can definitely get a chorizo fix at that place.

    I like the cheap, greasy, pork chorizo with extra salivary glands and lymph nodes.

    Chrizo is the same as hot dogs for me. Gotta be at least all beef.

    For cheap but decent beef chorizo, Peyton's is pretty good.

    Speaking of hot dogs, wienies and eggs with cheese...... darn good breakfast.

    Yep, add a bit of EL Pato tomato sauce to the scrambled eggs.
