How To Cook Perfect Eggs Every Time

eggs

are quick cheap and easy and if you don't have them in your fridge already you probably should here are five easy ways to

cook

eggs

perfect

ly

every

time

you don't need much for these first two preparations all you need is a good non-stick skillet it doesn't have any scratches on it a rubber spatula some salt and pepper and a good amount of butter you want to use a non-stick skillet

eggs

are notoriously sticky because of all the protein and a lot of other stuff in there and you also want to make sure that you're not using any metal utensils on the pan itself first up scrambled

eggs

one of my personal favs scrambled

eggs

there's a lot of different ways to

cook

them this is lid that we prefer at tasty kitchen it's a great idea to crack them into a separate bowl first one in case you have any big chunks of

eggs

hell in there if any shell does get into the bowl itself totally fine take an

eggs

hell that you just cracked and use that to go in and get the shell out while it might seem easier to crack them into the pan and scramble them in there it's not really a good even way to do it you'll have some big chunks of egg whites some big chunks of egg yolk just trust me it's an easy bowl to clean just throw them in a bowl first and scramble them in there so instead of adding milk or cream we just use a lot of butter you start with about two tablespoons of butter get it nice and foamy in the pan and when it's pretty much all the way melted...

we're going to season our

eggs

with a bit of salt and pepper and any other seasonings you want and then into the pan we want to keep our heat pretty low here and we're actually not going to move the

eggs

at all until we kind of see a little bit of the egg setting on the sides of the pan when you start to see a little bit of the

eggs

set that's when you want to take a rubber spatula and from the outside in push the

eggs

towards the center and kind of all around the pan so that all the

eggs

are

cook

ing pretty evenly when they're about three quarters of the way

cook

ed we're going to do a real sneaky trick here and add a few cubes of butter that's another tablespoon cut into fours or so we're going to melt those cubes of butter into the

eggs

themselves and they're going to kind of emulsify sort of this like creamy nice meltyness into the scrambled

eggs

and they add this like really beautiful creamy texture at the end so we recommend taking them off a little bit before you think the residual heat within the

eggs

will continue to

cook

them until they're the

perfect

doneness i mean it definitely takes an art and takes a little bit of

time

to get the scrambled egg right but there's just something so good about it just kind of like hits all those salty creamy fatty notes for me and i just really really love having scrambled

eggs

the fried egg i think people are afraid of fried

eggs

i don't know there's like so many different ways to do...
how to cook perfect eggs every time
it it's like should pan be high heat should be low how do you get that

perfect

color we're going to do ours on a medium heat for the fried egg so add butter to the pan add your egg into the butter so you want it to be hot enough that the egg white is kind of setting when it goes in let it start

cook

ing and you want to make sure that it's not so hot that the egg white itself is like going all over and boiling like crazy add just a few drops of water at this point and immediately cover with the lid and that's going to create a good amount of steam in the pan so it's going to help

cook

the egg white without being on such a high heat that the egg yolk will

cook

through as well at that point you know once it's

cook

ed for a few minutes you have the world's most picture

perfect

egg really yellow vibrant yolk the white is

cook

ed through there's none of that weird like snotty bit that no one likes like under

cook

ed egg white it just takes maybe a minute or two with that steam on top and then you have a picture

perfect

egg i mean you could instagram that it's a million things on the internet like how to get the

perfect

ly hard boiled egg we've tested a whole bunch and this is our tried and true method to get your

perfect

boiled egg

every

time

you want to put them over medium-high heat because you want to bring them to a boil but you want it to kind of happen slowly so similar to potatoes we're doing this because we want them to

cook

really...
how to cook perfect eggs every time
evenly we don't want the outside to

cook

for the inside cans once it's at a rolling boil you want to take it off the heat cover and set your

time

r between 4 and 16 minutes depending on how you like your yolks

cook

ed and then once they're

cook

ed to your liking you want to immediately take the

eggs

out and put them into a nice bath that's going to stop the

cook

ing right away to make sure that your yolk is going to be

cook

ed to your preference if you leave them in the hot water or just like take them out of the hot water and don't cool them down then you'll get that like really weird chalky like grayish green yolk which we don't want and just as a visual here are

eggs

cook

ed at all these different

time

s you can see how much softer the yolk is at four minutes whereas 16 is completely

cook

ed through you just cut them in halves or quarters throw them right on top of the salad they add like a nice amount of color and freshness i think they're also a really good snack as well but there's a million different recipes you can use for hard-boiled

eggs

all right so for poaching

eggs

which i honestly don't think is too scary you want to use a big pot of water there's just like more room for the egg to kind of move around and you want to make sure that your pot of water is i know this sounds crazy but like at a hard simmer like you don't want it so boiling that the water is really disruptive and it's gonna shake the egg a ton but if...
it's not moving at all then the egg will just completely sink to the bottom and there won't be any movement rolling that egg white over the egg yolk similar to scrambled

eggs

you're always going to want to make sure that you're cracking your

eggs

into a bowl first and then we're going to do a whirlpool trick so you're going to stick your spoon in swirl the water and then that's center whirlpool is where we're going to drop our egg into as it's slowing down is when you want to add your egg if it's still going too heavy if the whirlpool is too fast then the egg's just going to be like whoa you want to let the egg go and do its thing in there until you kind of can't see any of that translucent egg white anymore with a poached egg you want the egg yolk to still be quite runny but again no one wants like a runny egg white and that is a poached egg so we're going to blot it get all the extra water off there and then you're ready to eat so that's the traditional method but if you were doing a whole bunch we've got a trick for you so instead of a big deep pot we're just going to use a saute pan that has flat sides like three or four inches deep that you can put some of these heat safe glass bowls and have them completely covered in water and for this one i can do like three maybe even four at a

time

depending on how big your bowls are and how big your pot is and then same deal you want to crack your

eggs

into a...
separate dish but what i'm going to do is actually go from one dish to another and what that bowl is gonna do is it's gonna keep the egg contained in that space this is cool because you can get a nice rounded shape

every

time

but it's gonna look a little bit different than your classic poached egg if you're just doing this for your friends and family at home i don't think anyone will mind it'll still taste the same it's easier for you to do a whole bunch of them and then it's a little less intimidating way to approach poached

eggs

really good nice soft delicate way to have an egg and it's also kind of an impressive way to serve something that's pretty cheap i love poached

eggs

yeah are purchased your favorite wait do we know i think my problem is i don't have a favorite i like them all if i had children they'd be

eggs

can't really choose one right depends on the day
