    I usually put salt unto my breakfast egg. Have seen 'Maggi'-sauce too. (Is that known outside of Germany?)

    I first tried Maggi sauce when I visited Germany in 1972, and loved it. You can find it in Canada in some German Deli's. I've never tried it on eggs though. Usually I put some in my soup.

    YES !!!

    Simon thinks its disgusting - he says anything on eggs except HP Brown sauce is just wrong !!

    Yes, on scrambled eggs or omelettes, usually.

    If you don't mind doing a little bit more work, here is a delicious variation on poached eggs, from TV food show host Mario Batali:


    2 tbsp. olive oil
    1 medium-size red onion, thinly sliced
    28 oz. can tomatoes, drained
    1/2 cup Gaeta or Kalamata olives, pitted or whole
    Pinch of salt
    4 to 6 eggs
    1 bunch basil
    1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    1. In a 12 inch non-stick frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and stir often until light brown, about 9 min. Slice tomatoes lengthwise into quarters and add along with olives and salt. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low.Simmer gently, uncovered and stirring often, just until tomatoes start to break down, about 15 min.

    2. Carefully crack eggs into pan on top of tomatoes, keeping them whole and trying not to let them touch each other. Sprinkle with salt. Cover pan with a lid or foil. Cook over medium-low until whites have set and yolks are done as you like, from 6 to 8 min.

    3. Meamwhile, remove basil leaves from stems. Stack several together, then cut into thick shreds with scissors or a knife. You'll need about 1 cup. When eggs are ready, sprinkle with cheese. Then scatter basil around sides.

    No ketchup on my eggs, thank you.

    My mom has this recipe for scrambled eggs that produces a slightly green looking but absolutely scrumptious end product. I know the recipe calls for curry powder and some other things. I put generic (Krogrer brand) curry powder on my eggs, it doesn't produce quite the same result but still yummy.

    How bout on your fry?

    Yes, i like ketchup on my eggs. I can eat it alone on a spoon.

  • rekless

    I just came back from having a phenomenal brunch at 'my'Pub. Outside on the patio, gentle breeze blowing softly across the wooden deck, reading the Sunday paper, sipping on a coffee. What a great way to spend a Sunday!!!

    I had the "Heart attack breakfast" (Steak and eggs). I used a little ketchup for the home fries and HP Saunce (any steak sauce really works for me). I don't mind ketchup with my eggs, mostly for scambled tho.

    For a fried egg sandwich there has to be ketchup. Tho I have been getting away more and more from using ketchup, replacing it with salsa or BBQ sauce.
