Eggs for Breakfast

It is time to post more food and less politics or thoughts. This is gonna be quick, so don´t even bother to sit back and relax while you read this.

I know I talk a lot about having tacos for breakfast, or really greasy stuff right after you wake up, but in reality, one of my favourite ways to start my days is with some eggs. Fried, poached, scrambled, you name it bitch! … sorry, I got a little carried away there.

Easy as Sunday morning

Cooking eggs is the easiest thing in the book, really, bare with me here, I mean, you just need to scramble them and put the result on a medium hot pan and stir it once in a while for 3 to 4 minutes and that´s it. I´m not saying that poaching an egg is the easiest thing, but hey, eventually we´ll get there in our lives. One day you will wake up will say to yourself “Today I´m poaching some goddamn eggs”, and you will fail miserably.

I used roasted kumaras, I reckon you should do the same, mate.

Eggs were part of the most amazing breakfast I ever had, and eggs are an important ingredient for many recipes, like bread, cakes, quiche, sauces, and a lot of traditional oriental foods. Almost all of us have eaten an egg at least once in our lives, but, there´s so much than just white and yellow in what we have consumed.

For the following explanation I will quote Wikipedia, as this is getting technical:

That´s right little buddy, you won´t make it.

“The shape of an egg resembles a prolate spheroid with one end larger than the other, with cylindrical symmetry along the long axis. An egg is surrounded by a thin, hard shell.

Inside, the egg yolk is suspended in the egg white by one or two spiral bands of tissue called the chalazae(from the Greek word χάλαζα, meaning hailstone or hard lump).”

So, that sums it up, pretty much, we crack that shell and pour its content in a  pan, tray, mouth, or whatever and we enjoy its silky, smooth, distinguishable texture.

Ps1. As you´ve noticed I´ve placed pictures o some of the things I´ve cooked using eggs.
