What can we say about eggs? They’re delicious, packed with protein, and extremely affordable. Those are three of the reasons why many parents use scrambled eggs as their first cooking lesson for children and college students. However, as you get older, you’ll realize that you can only eat scrambled eggs but so many times before you start to get bored. That’s why we’re here to help. With the right ingredients and the proper pan, you’ll never be bored with breakfast eggs again.
In reference to one particular Copper Chef review, we’re here to show you how to make exciting eggs in 4 different ways.
There are two types of boiled eggs: hard and soft. There isn’t much in the way of flavoring when it comes to actual preparation of boiled eggs, but salt and pepper tend to be the seasoning of choice. While many people are familiar with the “submerge and boil” method of preparing hard boiled eggs, perfecting the soft boil is a little bit harder. To make your soft boiled eggs, use the same method for hard boiling, but cook for a few minutes less than you normally would. For hard-boiled eggs, simply peel and enjoy. With soft boiled eggs, you’ll want to use a knife to tap off the top portion of the egg and then you can enjoy straight from the shell.
In similar fashion to the soft boiled egg, poached eggs are another method of cooking eggs that often eludes people on the proper method to prepare them. To prepare poached eggs, simmer a pot of water and carefully break the eggs into the water. Cook for about 1 minute and then poach for 3 to 5 minutes. You can season poached eggs with salt and pepper as you would a boiled egg. To create a filling meal, you can eat your poached eggs over toast or roasted vegetables, which are also healthy and affordable.
Who doesn’t love a good omelet? They’re just as easy to make as scrambled eggs and equally as customizable. To make your omelet, whisk egg whites and then sprinkle in your filling of choice. You can fill omelets with anything, from vegetables to seafood. The fillings and seasoning options for omelets are endless, making them one of the best ways to spice up your egg cooking arsenal. Omelets are especially easy to make in copper pots and pans. According to one Copper Chef review, the Cerami-Tech coating on his preferred pan makes cooking his omelets easy and cleanup painless.
Possibly one of the more delicious and exciting ways to cook eggs on this list, but also one of the more complicated methods. Frittatas require patience and a little skill. In your ovenproof skillet, cook any of the fillings that you would want in your frittatas such as the meat and vegetables. Then, pour your lightly beaten eggs into the skillet and let the eggs cook without touching them. With a spatula, lift the edges of the frittata from the pan and place the entire pan in the oven for about 10 minutes. Voila!! You have a frittata.
Whether you’re looking for a new breakfast item or a delicious one pot meal, these will surely help you make eggs a little more exciting going forward.
