1. Boiled Egg
The good ol’ boiled egg. Personally, this is the easiest way to cook an egg. You just need to boil a pot of water and put the eggs. Now, there are people who places the eggs after the water is boiled and people who places the eggs first the bring the water to boil. Does it make a difference? No. Both methods create the same result.
Now, there are some tricks to create the consistency of your boiled egg. The secret is in the timing! In the picture below, you can see that runny-yolk eggs are boiled below 4 minutes and after that it will be all the way through.
Another trick when making this delicacy is the peeling part. Many of you would probably know that peeling boiled eggs are easier to be done in an ice bath. Just put the eggs into a bowl of ice water after boiling and you will peel the easily.
2. Scrambled Egg
This is one of the easiest and the hardest ways to cook your egg. This method might look easy, but a simple mistake could possibly create rubbery egg mess. The trick to avoid this is to use a low heat and make sure that the pan is not too hot.
First, whisk the eggs and season them as you like. Next, put a tablespoon of butter and let it melt. Then, put the eggs. Now, using your spatula, create a back and forth motion to cook the egg. Stop when you reach the desired consistency. Enjoy your scrambled egg! P.s. you can add a splash of milk to your egg to make it creamier.
3. Sunny Side Up Egg
The most nutritious and easiest breakfast-making method in cooking eggs. By looking at the name you would already know that this is great for breakfast when the sun is up. Now, there are two types of people: Ones that like the crispy brown texture of the edge and ones that don’t want any browning on their eggs. The reason why the eggs go brown are that you’re pan is too hot. So, it’s all in the temperature.
First, heat up your pan (if you want brown edges, you could heat the pan more). Second, put a little oil or butter. Next, crack an egg and let it cook for a few second. Cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil to trap the heat inside the pan. Enjoy!
4. Poached Egg
Many of you would probably have seen people use vinegar to poach an egg which will also add zinc into your egg and make it taste sour. However, it is not necessary. The easiest way to poach an egg is by using the microwave and a mug.
First, crack the egg into the mug and add a cup of water. Remember to not shake it. Next, cover the mug with a paper tower. Now, set the timer for 1 minute and enjoy your poached egg.
5. Steamed Egg
This type of egg-cooking is common in Asian countries. Personally, this is the best and delicious way of cooking eggs. The egg is at the right consistency like mustard and very silky. But, first prepare yourself a steamer pot. Also, prepare a skimmer spoon with small holes.
First, crack open an egg and whisk it smooth with also adding seasonings. Next, place it in a small bowl by also straining the egg with the skimmer spoon. This step is essential to make a perfect silky texture. Then, cover the bowl with aluminum foil to prevent any droplets falling into the egg. Next, prepare the steamer pot. Lastly, steam the egg on low heat for 10-14 minutes until the eggs are set. Enjoy!
