What are your favorite condiments with EGGS?

I am an absolute fanatic about everything eggs. I still can't think of a single egg dish that I do not like - I LOVE scrambled eggs, omelettes, poached, pan-fried, frittata, you name it. What I found interesting is that for each type of egg dish, I use a different kind of condiment(s). For scrambled eggs, I like just salt and pepper; omelettes I add ketchup and hot sauce; I like to add sweet soy sauce on my pan-fried (i know it is weird), and sometime mayo on my tamago-yaki (Japanese style omelette).

What about you? What are your favorite condiments with your eggs?

    Lots of black pepper and Melinda's XXX habañero sauce.

      S&P

      Truffles

      Cheese

      Salsa

        Texas Pete Hot Sauce. It adds heat, but isn't as scorching as Tabasco.

          HP sauce on fried eggs.
          I don't understand, but my husband like it.
          maybe daddy's sauce (?),too.

            Hot sauce( depends what I feel like): Crystal, Tobasco, Melinda's

            or

            salsa or picante sauce.

              I honestly love sunny side up, heavliy seasoned with no other additions(well maybe ww or rye). However, for scrambled eggs, in order of preference:

              1. Goat cheese.
              2. Tabasco Chipotle hot sauce.
              3. Truffle oil, black pepper and a few shavings of parm

              In an omelette( I'm talking the JC version-thin, buttery, tender and just barley set), I don't think you can beat sauted mushrooms...

                Sunny side up eggs: with a baguette and shoyu
                Scrambled eggs: with rice and furikake

                1. Caroline1 Dec 10, 2007 08:51 AM

                  For sunny side up, salt, pepper, and maybe a little ketchip UNLESS I use the eggs in huevos rancheros or on top of stacked (not rolled) enchiladas.

                  For poached eggs, sometimes as Benedict, but I prefer Bearnaise to Hollandaise, or sometimes on waffles with maple syrup over them and butter under them.

                  anything except brains or tripe in a quiche.

                  For omlettes, I do anyutying from simple cheeses like brie, camembert, chevre, or even Stilton, to a sauteed filling that can include onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, truffles, just plain butter-fried tomatoes, to sausages on occasion. And then there are dessert omlettes... jellies, jams, preserves, candied fruit, stewed fruit, fresh fruit, truffles (the chocolate kind diced), candied chestnuts, nuts, custard. chocolate sauce, real from scratch whipped cream, or anything that seems decadent but good. For some strange reason, most people are surprised when I make dessert omlettes, but they are really good!

                  Oh! Egg salad. With lots of mayonnaise and dill. And maybe a little wasabi.

                  Oh my goodness! It's almost Christmas. How could I forget oeufs a la neige or floating island dessert? Great for Christmas Eve!

                  Eggs. A rich way to entertain on a really tight budget!

                    I love soy sauce or maggi on scrambled eggs or fried eggs or any type of eggs. Salsa is always great and a traditional ketchup and hot sauce is perfect. You really can't go wrong with any type of condiment with eggs except for maybe relish.

                      I use a drop or 2 of smoked Tabasco on omelets and scrambled eggs.

                        Let's see:

                        1 - bacon
                        2 - bacon
                        3 - sausage
                        4 - english muffin with salted butter and strawberry jam
                        5 - hash browns
                        6 - a good cup of coffee

                        May not be condiments, but that's the perfect jfood breakfast with his eggs.

                        Oh and the best condiment, good conversation with mrs jfood.

                          Yup, jfood,
                          bacon is not only one of the basic food groups, it is also one of the greatest spices around...I believe it's in the same category as butter...whadduhya think?

                          "Oh and the best condiment, good conversation with mrs jfood."
                          That is the sweetest thing to read.

                          My favorite condiment with my eggs:
                          #1. Salt
                          #2. Bacon (for eating and for the yummy drippings for cooking the eggs)
                          #3. Butter (can be used in place of #2, but no matter how much bacon is involved, I will still butter the taost I serve with the eggs)

                            Oh yeah, baby! You said it, Jfood. I'd also through in some o'briend homefries and a piece of buttered rye toast. I love EGGS! Sorry.

                            Tyler Florence recently said, "What is life w/o bacon?" I would add eggs to that.

                            (If the eggs are scrambled, I love folding in some cream cheese)

                                I love a cream cheese omelette! Even one made with egg whites 'cause you used the yolks for something like creme brulee.

                              Tossed in my perfectly (softly as in gently) scrambled eggs.
                              oh, and pico pica sauce!

                              Whether cheesy- scrambled, fried, omelette, or migas, I usually top them with a generous heap of fresh pico de gallo: coarsely chopped roma tomato, onion, jalapeno, a little lime juice, maybe a little cilantro. Takes 5 seconds in the Handy Little Chopper.

                                When I was a kid, thanks to my South African father, we always had Worcestshire sauce on our eggs, along with ketchup. I still like it, but these days, if I don't feel like that, sometimes I'll use Sriracha instead of ketchup. Sometimes just S&P.

                                  try branston pickle! (the finer chopped version)

                                    1. Omelettes with caviar and my homemade yogurt inside, served with good German bread
                                    2. Poached with Tabasco and served with plain bagel
                                    3. Scrambled with green onion, spring onion, chili flakes, shoyu served with hot rice (gohan)
                                    4. American breakfast of bacon, hash browns, pancakes, and sausage--the scrambled eggs have to have black pepper, bit of salt, ketchup, and Tabasco
                                    5. Boiled--dip in a mix of salt, black pepper, and chili powder
                                    6. Japanese omelette--serve with dipping sauce of shoyu, honey, and chopped fresh chili, serve with hot gohan

                                        Made with a bit of mirin and usually in a rectangual Japanese omelette pan, then cut up and included in things like sushi, mixed pan-cooked dishes, with rice...

                                      1. Sunnyside up mixed into stone ground grits with lots of butter and black pepper.

                                      2. Scrambled or over easy with Salsa Jalepena.

                                      3. Over easy with mayo and black pepper on toast and a slice of double-Glouchester cheese.

                                        My younger brother loves scrambled eggs with paprika. I have no idea where he got this. I think we happened to have a container of paprika in the back of the cupboard (I don't know for what) and he threw it on his eggs. This seems really, really odd to me.

                                          i always season my scrambled eggs with paprika! before cooking though.

                                          as for condiments:

                                          on omelettes or scrambles, it's hot sauce, hot sauce, and more hot sauce...type/brand is determined by the flavors inside.

                                          if it's a mexican or spanish omelette i cut back on the hot sauce & add a little salsa as well.

                                          indian-style curried eggs get harissa and a tomato chutney.

                                          mediterranean frittata gets a mustard-based sauce.

                                          on pocket eggs, tamari-sesame sauce.

                                          and there ALWAYS has to be some sort of tomato on the side.

                                              that's the one! it's delicious.

                                              of course i modified it, as i always do...i use 6 large whites +1 yolk, whisk together & just pour it all in & cook like an omelette, with only 1 tsp. canola [as oppose to the 4 the recipe calls for]...and i use wheat-free tamari instead of soy because i'm gluten-intolerant.

                                              i love to serve it with sauteed spinach, baby bok choy, or chinese broccoli garnished with toasted sesame seeds & a drizzle of the extra sauce.

                                                hmmm... Any clue why the dish is called "pocket" eggs? In reading the recipe, I don't see any indication of anything that will cause the eggs to form a pocket, though the recipe does sound kind of eccentric when it insists on cracking the eggs into two seperate containers, then simultaneously pouring them into opposite sides of the frying pan. Does this somehow form a pocket, or am I just being too literal?

                                                Not particularly liking the "crisp" (rubbery in my book) edges eggs get when I drop them into too hot a frying pan, I'm a bit hesitant about trying the recipe, but on your recommendation, I just might try it once... '-).

                                                  all in know about the history of the dish is that the particular method of cooking eggs originated in wuhan, china, and that eggs were a valuable commodity during the chinese cultural revolution due to food rationing. the woman credited with this particular recipe in "eating well" magazine [ying chang compestine] may have named the recipe herself...i don't know that it's necessarily an official name or commonly used term.

                                                  oh, and re: the "doneness" issue...i know what you mean, it's a fine line [a few seconds, max] between good crisp and shoe leather. i'd say try it, because i love the flavor...but please don't hold it against me if you don't like it! :)

                                          Basically, salt and pepper. Tabasco Sauce or some Salsa Cosecha Purépecha in the Chipotle variety.
                                          Fried egg sandwich: mustard and a little mayo.

                                            Salsa Cosecha Purepecha Chipotle is amazing stuff, makes eggs sing. If I can't have that, then some fresh salsa verde works almost as well.

                                            I also love sauteed red onions and green bell peppers with scrambled eggs. Or chopped, cooked broccoli and cheddar stirred into scrambled eggs at the last minute. And a pancake sandwich, do pancakes count as a condiment? Don't forget to pass the ketchup with that fried egg sandwich, which is all the better if it's got a slice of Vermont cheddar w/horseradish on it, horseradish and egg works too.

                                            Not a big fan of cheese with eggs, unless it's a few shavings of hard, parmesan-style cheese.

                                            I do love:
                                            ketchup (it's a classic)
                                            chili-garlic sauce

                                              I cant eat eggs any way except scrambled. Tennesee sunshine hot sauce. Crispy bacon. Bob Evans link sausage. Rye toast with salted butter and strawberry jam.

                                                    It was the roasted garlic and bell pepper blend. I was a little skeptical about her suggestion to use it on eggs, but (as usual) she was right :)

                                                  OK, here is one I haven't seen on the lists thus far. Fried egg sandwhich with Hoisin sauce. So yummy!

                                                  Scrambled, over easy, fried, etc...in other words for breakfast, pepper and salsa fresca or pico de gallo.

                                                  I also like to eat fresh, piping hot white rice with a raw egg yolk and butter cracked and mixed into the rice. Yum! now I'm hungry.

                                                              Lately I've taken to Tapatio on hard scrambled eggs (how my honey makes them).

                                                              I make scrambled eggs low and slow so they come out soft and custardy. Just some chives and some good salt and I'm happy.

                                                              Then there's my very favorite--an "over easy" egg over a piece of chocolate layer cake. But everyone thinks I'm crazy when I mention that one.

I use to hate eggs but now that I enjoy them (mostly sunny side up or occasionnnally in an omelette) I rarely use condiments. I'll use ketchup when I eat an egg sunny side up with hash browns and just kind of meld all the flavors together. I never season my eggs.

                                                                            Your soy sauce on the pan-fried type sounds delicious though!

Or if I'm having the eggs with pancakes or waffles I dump maple syrup on the whole mess. Actually, I guess I have been known on occasion to have the syrup on the eggs without the pancake or waffle.

                                                                                        My husband likes either Tabasco or that green-not-found-in-nature habanero sauce on his. Except if it's an omelet, in which case he dumps so much salsa on it that you can't find the eggs at all.

I love spinach with scrambled eggs or in an omelette. I love roasted red peppers with eggs! A little hot sauce mixed in can be great. Mushrooms, eggs, sage and cheese! I'm one of those that doesn't believe that ketchup belongs at the breakfast table for some reason, though it is ok with eggs.

Apparently "In the old days" the Bostonians used LOTS of pepper and the 'burbs not as much. Whenever I cook eggs for him I can't see them due to the amount of pepper he puts on.

I cannot imagine peanut butter, jam, syrup or some of the other things mentioned on my eggs! But, I love eggs. Usually cooked in butter and basted or scrambled, with some course salt and plenty of pepper and served with crusty buttered toast. I like omelets, especially cheese, spinach and mushrooms. I love poached with hollandaise (Benedict or Florentine) and like huevos rancheros occasionally. Sometimes I make myself a McMuffinish thing, or a tortilla española. But usually, I love that flavor of eggs and butter, with just s&p.

I should carry it in my purse, because I am always sorely disappointed when a breakfast spot only offers Tabasco. I will accept Chalula or Valentina as substitutes. I also love Siracha on my eggs. Yum!

Not tiny bits, shredded, either but big globs of it. I always ask for an omelette with extra cheese but very seldom get it.

                                                                                                                                    I once stood in a buffet line and bypassed all the other offerings at the egg station. I just instructed the omelette maker: more cheese. He kept trying to stop, but I finally got it the way I wanted.

                                                                                                                                    Cheese, glorious cheese.

My husband likes to put some over the top of his omelet too. It's a fabulous combination of sweet n' spicy n' smoky. I also don't make a grilled cheese sandwich without it. Luckily when we bought it the last time we bought 6 jars cause everybody who tries it wants to take some home! You can find it online here http://www.vtharvest.com/index.html - bet you'll never use ketchup again!
