6 Easy Ways You Can Cook an Egg

Whether you’re having breakfast or a quick ramen snack, eggs really tie all of your meals together. Not only is egg a source of protein, but you can also make it in a variety of ways using different ingredients. You’ve probably already tried most of the styles eggs are cooked in. But, in this blog, we’ll share some creative ways to cook an egg. Keep reading to see if you can find anything new, and try it next!

Ways to Cook an Egg

You can come across many different ways to cook an egg. From your basic sunny side up to the perfect scrambled egg, you can be as innovative as you want. Here are some types of eggs you can cook:

1. Sunny Side Up

You can pretty much guess it from the name, but sunny side up means the egg yolk faces upwards. The yellow, round yolk looks like a sun, which is probably where the name comes from. Remember that flipping is a big no-no when it comes to sunny side up. Otherwise, you’ll just be having an over-easy egg.

2. Hard & Soft Boiled

Boiled eggs are prepared with the shell in boiling water. You can boil an egg in two ways. The hard or soft refers to the egg’s consistency and the cooking time it takes. Put the egg in boiling water for 10-12 minutes for a hard-boiled egg and 6 minutes for a soft-boiled one.

You can gently put the eggs in ice water to cool the shell. Just tap it on the counter and start removing the shell! For a soft boil, tap the egg’s top on the counter and pour it out in a cup or bowl. You’re good to go after sprinkling some salt and pepper.

3. Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are prepared by mixing the egg yolk and white as they heat, and they’re delicious. You can cook them for a few minutes if you want a soft texture and more if you want to eat hard scrambled eggs.

4. Omelets

You can mix the scrambled eggs with vegetables, spices, and cheese to turn them into a more delicious ‘omelet’. The ingredients really compliment the flavor of the egg, and vice versa. If you fold it over, you have an omelet. But if you leave it open-faced, then you have yourself a frittata.

5. Poached Eggs

Poached eggs are among the creative, unique, and different ways to cook an egg. With the runny egg yolks and boiled egg white, these eggs make for a filling and healthy meal. Poached eggs for breakfast are an excellent way to start your day.

5. Basted Eggs

Have you ever heard of basted eggs? They’re not as complicated as they sound. You cook this egg, similar to how you make the sunny side up egg. But here is where the twist comes: you cook the top part by lightly pouring the fat on top of your egg. You can even use water to make basted eggs.
