How do you eat your eggs? How many do you eat a day?

Isn't this the most wonderful title?One of Scotland's national treasures. It is somewhere between a fish soup and a stew. Called 'Skink' locally. Whatever, it is a meal in a bowl and a very good one too. I could push the boat out and tell you you need Finnan Haddies to make it but I wouldn't be so cruel. Any smoked white fish will do. I used a mix of white and smoked cod. You do need the smoked fish to give the special flavour though. It is a perfect winter warmer or a good dish on a wet summer day here. Keep left over mashed potato to make this. It's a good use up.
750 mls / 1.6 pints full fat milk or a mix of milk and cream if you are feeling decadent
A small handful of chopped parsley (reserving the stalks)
1 bay leaf
12 black peppercorns
450 gms /1lb Smoked haddock fillets or any firm white smoked fish or a mix of smoked and plain fish. Whatever you have or whatever you fancy.
5ogms/ 2oz butter
1 medium onion chopped
2 scallions finely chopped
200gms/8 oz buttered mashed potato
Salt and Pepper
Chopped parsley and four poached eggs.
Pour the milk into a saucepan large enough to accommodate the fish.
Add in the bay leaf, peppercorns, parsley stalks and fish.
Bring to the boil and simmer for five minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow to infuse for five minutes or more.
Remove the fish, strain the poaching liquid and reserve.
Flake the poached fish removing any skin and bones.
While the fish is poaching heat the butter in another saucepan and fry the onion until soft but not brown.
Then stir in the strained poaching liquid, then the mashed potatoes until you have a thick creamy consistency.
Add the chopped parsley leaves, chopped scallions and the flaked fish and simmer for another 4-5 minutes
Season well with black pepper and salt if needed.
Pour into serving bowls and garnish with chopped parsley and a poached egg.
You can of course poach the eggs in a saucepan of boiling water. A short cut is to put boiling water and a little vinegar into a microwavable dish. Make sure the water is enough to cover the eggs well. Microwave for a minute to make sure the water is good and hot. Swirl the water and drop in the egg and microwave for 30-40 seconds per egg. They will not cook a great deal after removal but will keep hot.

Cut an avocado in half and remove seed. Break a large egg and drop it in the place where the seed was. Broil until you see the egg almost cooked through. Add shredded cheese over the top and finish broiling until cheese is melted. Enjoy.

Try this: mix 1 cup of spinach with walden farms calorie free bacon ranch sauce, dump 8 egg whites in pan, mix in spinach and turn on stove and let it cook all mixed together. I some times add in a little bit of shredded cheese. So good!

. So my first try at Greek yogurt deviled eggs was a fail. I tried going off a recipe online and it was crap, I doctored it to make it slightly better but I had already botched it by accidentally dumping an ass load of paprika in the mix. I'm normally a pretty good cook but I was missing a couple things I wanted to use. So I used paprika (oops amount) minced onion, Greek yogurt, horse radish , spicy brown mustard and a couple tbsp of water and I came out with what looks like brick red tile grout. They're edible and will be shoved in my flavor snout but the recipe will be reworked and posted when it doesn't taste like paprika paste:-/

After I cook a pound of bacon (hormone free), I pour the grease into a rocks glass. When it's egg time, I cook 'em in the grease. I leave the cast iron on the stovetop and just wipe it off when done.
Also egg salad with hot sauce when I'm in a hurry (even though the mayo has all that rubbish N6 inflammatory fat). I've bought fancy sunflower-based mayo for the egg salad but it tastes funky like that

This looks to evolved into an egg recipe thread. My favorite way to consume eggs is deviled

Liquid egg whites in two scoops of chocolate peanutbutter truetein makes a pretty good pudding. Or cooked oatmeal/pb/whey/eggwhites/ciinnamon blended together. Mmmmm

Oh, and if you hardboil eggs, you can keep the yolk nice and bright instead of getting the gray halo. Just dump out the boiling water and fill with ice cold water. Some kind of science behind that or whatever but it works

Perfect eggs ever time.

oh wait.... no it doesn't (much)
Funny because I was eating hardboiled eggs with my daughters at our corporate ass gym cafe the other day. They don't like hardboiled yolks but eat them when they're cooked other ways. Anyway, I purposely ate the yolks just to see the fat lady's reaction sitting next to us--> literal jaw drop, she couldn't believe someone would eat an egg yolk like that.

Everyone else: For your sake, and the sake of sanity, STOP eating only the egg whites. Egg whites contain none of the vitamins and everything else that makes eggs ****ing awesome. Egg whites block biotin absorption.
Egg yolks are ****ing magic, they contain GOOD cholesterol, tons of healthy vitamins and nutrients, awesome for your fats. A calorie is not a calorie, whenever you are starving your body by feeding it things that contain no nutrients. Egg yolks contain enough biotin to offset the absorption blocking aspects of the egg whites. Never eat the white without the yolk. On the other hand, eat yolks by themself all day long.
The cholesterol in the yolk can become oxidized and damage from over cooking, so don't over cook, or even cook your yolk at all. SOME of the biotin blocking effects from the whites are negated when cooked, so one thing I will do is separate them, cook the white and drink the raw yolks.
Dietary cholesterol effecting blood cholesterol is bull****, the only time you have to worry about it is if you are consuming large amounts of damaged oxidized cholesterol. Your body makes way more cholesterol than you can eat - even with tons of egg yolks - and if you have high levels of blood cholesterol it's most likely from inflammation damage your body is trying to fix, and not from something you're eating.
A babies brain develops almost entirely on cholesterol, breast milk is extremely high in cholesterol. High healthy fat and cholesterol is magic, stop throwing it away.
I eat between 8 to 12 whole eggs a day, either raw or whites cooked and yolks raw. I would never consider NOT eating the yolks.

Ignore LDL, get your HDL as high as possible, and never ever take cholesterol lowering drugs. That's my plan, anyway.

I average anywhere from 5 to 6 whole eggs per day. I'll usually chop up some mushrooms and add spinach to my scrambled mess. But, I like some ideas I've read on here and kudos to the OP for bringing this up!
Glad I'm not the only, too, who likes eating them whole!

I eat my eggs fried. I have them over medium, with garlic, pepper, a little salt, and some hot sauce. Usually I have a side of bacon with that and have been incorporating a blended lettuces/cabbages and broccoli drink with it lately.
