Egg Cookery and Suggestions!

chartreauxx | Jul 23, 2013 03:36 PM

So! My boyfriend has a passionate hatred of eggs. I am choosy about my eggs, but I love them if well-prepared.

We had a breakthrough last night when I convinced him to try my mother's quiche recipe. It turns out not only will he tolerate the quiche, he actively adores it. This substantiates something I've been trying to tell him for a while: that if eggs are cooked correctly, he will in fact enjoy them.

This rekindles a mission for me: convince my boyfriend that he does like eggs after all. I know he'll eat quiche, and my mom's recipe for that is a hole-in-one for that. But, I'm seeking other ideas: I know how to poach, fry, scramble, etc, but I was thinking about maybe trying a French omelet. I've looked online; anyone here have a preference between Julia Child and Jacques Pepin? I noticed on the videos that their techniques differ slightly.

I'm also thinking of trying souffle; some years ago, while dining in NYC, my brother had a sublime cheese souffle at Payard. I dream of someday getting even close to that dish... Any tips are welcome and appreciated, I've never made souffle before and I know it's a finicky thing.

And, if you have a recipe that features beautiful, delicately-cooked fresh eggs, I would love ideas for things to experiment with!
