Not So Good...

I made the Easy Omelets for a Group tonight, but we weren't impressed with them. Maybe it was the combination of cheese, mushrooms, and fresh onions and peppers that did it, or maybe it was the fact that I used 3 eggs in them instead of 2, or maybe it was the fact that they were basically steamed and the moisture had no way out. It doesn't matter, though. They were runny. Ugh! I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't like my eggs the least bit moist (or wet, as I call it!).

If I'm having a fried egg, it had better be hard fried. I don't want any runny yolk. If I'm having scrambled eggs, I want them dry. Not choke-them-down kind of dry, but I don't want them shiny, either.

Anyway, I ended up putting my omelet in the skillet to cook a little longer. Billy doesn't like his eggs nearly as dry as I do, but he had to cook his omelet longer, too. We agreed that we won't use that recipe again, that we'll just cook our omelets individually and eat them as they're ready from now on.

Cook and learn!

Well, I have to try it now. I like my eggs runny-er. If you had left them in the water longer, would they have gotten more done? I've eaten so many eggs lately on this low carb plan that I don't think I can choke another one down quite yet.
