Condiments and Eggs

When I was younger, the only thing you ever added to your eggs would be salt and pepper. Now it seems, people just assume you want ketchup or hot sauce on it. I recently saw someone making an egg sandwich with mayo (which I have used in omelets).

What are some other condiments people are putting on eggs?

  1. Fines Herbes

    Herbes de Provence

    1. Smoked paprika. Although that's not really a condiment.

        Me too. Or smoked salt if I'm in the mood.

        1. I love spicy deli-style mustard with my scrambled eggs.

            It's odd, but I can't stand mustard with eggs even though I love mustard on just about anything, including mustard on mustard.

              and I'm the opposite -- I love yellow ballpark mustard on a fried-egg sandwich, but can't stand it on anything else.

              (I like strong grainy mustard on sandwiches, but not on eggs. Weird)

                I love mustard with fried eggs, but prefer salsa or ketchup with scrambled eggs. Poached eggs are good with a drizzle of garlic green chili sauce.

              Especially a good fresh tromatillo salsa
