Lately, I've been reading medieval cookbooks, and was enthralled by apple tansy.

*To make an Apple-Tansey. Pare your Apples and cut them in thin round slices, then fry them in good sweet Butter, then take ten Eggs, sweet Cream, Nutmeg, Cinamon, Ginger, Sugar, with a little Rose-water, beat all these together, and poure in upon your Apples and fry it. --The Compleat Cook: Expertly Prescribing The Most Ready Wayes, Whether Italian, Spanish Or French, For Dressing Of Flesh And Fish, Ordering Of Sauces Or Making Of Pastry (1658) *

I do one apple and two eggs, which seems to be a good ratio,. I would make them larger, but I've found that they taste best when the omelet portion is very thin and brown on the bottom. The moisture content also makes it take forever to cook, even in cast iron. SO use a big pan, and start smaller than you want.

With some sugar or honey in the eggs--and a wee bit of powdered sugar on the top--well, yes, it's sugar and of the devil and all that, but I think this tastes like an apple fritter, only from real food. So I live dangerously.

Don't leave out the rosewater. It really makes a difference. Well, I'm sure it would taste fine without, but wow, whole new level and all that. Middle eastern or indian grocery store, bottle is three bucks and makes a lovely after bath splash.

I love stuffing an omelet (or just scrambling the eggs) with whatever is available- mushrooms, peppers, meat, tomatoes, broccoli, onion. My favorite thing to do is have some raw avocado on the side. Also, I'm a huge fan of Frank's Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce; I love it on my eggs!

Allow me to introduce the frittata!

Pick one to three ingredients you'd like to have with your eggs and get them warming in an 8", nonstick, oven-safe skillet with some sort of fat (I generally use clarified butter). Typical ingredients can be ham, cheese and onions; spinach and leeks; or salsa and chorizo. While the bits come up to temperature, beat 6 eggs with a bit of kosher salt and some pepper and add to the skillet. Mix everything together well and stop stirring once the eggs start to solidify. Cook until the edges of the eggs pull away from the edge of the pan slightly; the center should still be slightly jiggly and possibly wet. Add cheese to the top (if you want) and place under a broiler for 2 to 8 minutes, until the cheese melts (if you used it) or the eggs cook through and the top starts to brown.

Slide it off onto a cutting board, cool for a few minutes, and cut it like a pizza.

How about baking something with coconut flour? It requires a large amount of eggs. I baked a coconut bread that called for 8 eggs.

It can also be nice to thicken a soup with yolks at the end as a blended soup. Or chicken "noodle" where you stir the soup and drizzle in whisked egg. Makes strands of egg..like egg drop soup.

I add eggs to whatever I have around. Most mornings its a meat of some kind, peppers, tomato, onion, mushrooms, or whatever. It's not the most exciting but switching up what's in it helps. Otherwise I have made the egg muffins before and those were pretty good. I just have a hard time with reheated eggs. So I need something quick and fresh.

Lately, I have been heating a TB of coconut oil in a small sautee pan and then add salsa. Once salsa starts to warm up, I crack 2-3 eggs in the middle of the salsa and cover the pan. Cook covered until the eggs turn to the consistency you like.

I forgot to add making your own mayo, egg yolks + coconut oil blended together. Add the oil in slowly to give it time to emulsify. You can also add all kinds of great flavors, cilantro lime, garlic, honey-siracha, it is really limited to your imagination. This is a great topping for any sort of meat or can be used as a salad dressing as well. Add some garlic, andchovies, lemon, and sub olive oil for coconut and you have caesar dressing.

Primal Toad has been eating eggs cooked sunny side up it looks like, over easy would work too, as long as yolks are runny, topped with raw honey and cinnamon. I tried it this morning and it is really yummy, great for breakfast (goes with the whole conventional sweet stuff for breakfast thing). He describes it as having french toast without the toast, which I agree with. I also tried making a fritatta for the first time and burned it but want to keep trying, it's easy to do (well, not for me obviously, but ya know) and doesn't take a lot of time.

I've been loving my new method of scrambled eggs, although it takes a bit more times and it's a bit messier:

I separate the yolks from the whites, pour the whites in a hot nonstick pan coated with a fat of my choosing (duck, lamb, etc.) as to be preparing an omelette. I usually cover the whites for a portion so they cook evenly through (I tend to make at least 6 eggs at a time, so the white is usually a rather thick layer). Once the eggs are fully cooked I turn the burner off and throw the yolks in, scramble everything up, and bang, done.

I do this because I've learned that the yolks and whites are to be cooked at different temperatures and times for maximum awesomeness. Whites are hearty and stable while the yolks are delicate.

Banana pancakes: For each serving use 2 " of mashed banana, 1 small egg, and a 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Mix them all together. If it's too runny, I add either some nut meal OR some almond butter (you could use any nut butter or coconut butter/mana). Fry it up like pancakes. This is sweet enough that no syrup is necessary, although I like a sprinkle of cinnamon. Sometimes I drop blueberries in for blueberry pancakes.

I take this cold for lunch sometimes.
