Instructions for cooking eggs

Audrey Rouby

Eggs are an economical product that we all consume more or less regularly, whether for breakfast or brunch. A base ingredient in many dishes, it is rarely the star of our plates. Here are some of the different ways to cook the egg that will allow you to enhance it.

Boiled egg

The boiled egg is served in an egg cup after 3 minutes of cooking in a pan of simmering water and is usually accompanied by small slices of toast with butter. A playful and fun dish that children love.

Poched egg

This cooking is a little more technical because the yolk of the egg must be runny and the white must be cooked and very firm. Cook for 6 minutes in simmering water, then remove the shell. The soft-boiled egg can be tasted very well with a pumpkin soup.

Hard boiled egg

Cook the egg for 10 minutes, still in simmering water, then immerse it in a bowl of ice water to cut the cooking. Once the egg is cold, remove the shell. This cooking is the most widespread. You can taste your hard-boiled egg as a mimosa egg or more simply in a fresh salad.

Scrambled egg

Usually eaten for breakfast, cooking scrambled eggs is relatively simple. In a frying pan not too hot, break your eggs and stir the mixture for 5 minutes until you get a creamy and creamy mixture. This recipe can very well be served with bacon slices and a good glass of fresh fruit juice.

Fried egg

Oil or butter your pan before adding your egg so it won't stick. Heat your stove well, crack your egg being careful not to puncture the yolk. Season then leave leather for 3 or 4 minutes. You can eat your egg with a well vinegared salad.

Turned egg

The turned egg uses the same principle as for the fried egg. However once the first side of your egg is cooked, turn it to cook the yolk of your egg.
