Here are 11 easy ways to prepare eggs. Here’s the deal, even with the higher prices of eggs today you can make a very inexpensive meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you are lucky enough to have chickens on your property, I tip my hat to all of you. I live in an HOA and we are not allowed to have chickens, we are lucky enough to have two dogs, let alone any other animals.
I must confess, I am happy to just buy the eggs at the store. If I was younger I would have loved to have chickens with my girls so we could have all learned the skills of raising them.

But if something happens in this world that’s so unsettled I will trade my homemade freshly ground whole wheat bread for a few eggs. It’s all good. We all have our own talents. Raising chickens is not in my future, as of today, anyway. Here is one of my favorite pans to prepare eggs: Lodge LCS3 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Chef’s Skillet, 10-inch

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
Instructions
  1. If you want to keep your fried eggs tender start with 2-3 tablespoons of butter in a small 9-inch fry pan. More butter for larger fry pans. Let it melt on a low temperature and slowly crack the eggs in a bowl to slowly drop them in the frying pan. Spoon the melted butter over the eggs as they cook. I like my eggs to cook about ten minutes on low. Cook them less time for sunny side up. I like to crack the yolks on mine as they cook.

Eggs Cooked in Mason Jar Rings

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 3 people
Ingredients
  • Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 wide mouth mason jar rings
Instructions
  1. Grab a frying pan and spray it with vegetable oil. Take three mason-jar (wide mouth) rings turned bottom side up. This way the flat part of the ring is sitting next to the pan surface. Make sure your stove is warm before you add the eggs to each ring. These rings will make your eggs perfectly round. I can usually make three eggs per pan depending, on the size of skillet you are using.  Cook on medium heat until cooked. All you do is toast some English muffins, add some cheese and ham or sausage. These are perfect for egg sandwiches.

Final Word
