Another thing I am realizing about my picky eating habits is that I need to have my food cooked to a specific point. If it is cooked too much or not cooked enough it will not make me happy. Meat needs to be Well done, pancakes, toast and waffles need to be golden brown and Eggs need to not be runny. Over-hard, scrambled and hard boiled is about it. There is something about the thought of un-cooked egg yolks that is not appealing. (On a side note, I will not eat the yolk of a hard boil egg unless it is mixed in egg salad)
Went for brunch at Stonefly Brewery today. My sausage and biscuits came with two eggs on the side. I saw this as an opportunity to give eggs a chance. I ordered them over-medium and asked for them on a separate plate. Just in case I couldn’t eat them, I didn’t want to ruin the rest of my food.
I have found in the past that I would order meals that usually come with eggs over easy, but ask for them over hard. I would then complain about the meal being too dry. I am sure having the egg the way it was meant to be cooked would help moisten the rest of the food. But, I could never bring myself to do it.
I really enjoyed my brunch at Stonefly today, over-medium eggs and all. I look forward to giving Eggs Benedict, and many other brunch staples, another chance. The way they were meant to be enjoyed.
