178 – Lifehacking

178 – Lifehacking

I have geektastic friends and they are brilliantly geektastic. This is one of their ideas. I’m not condoning torturing the staffs of Denny’s across the country… Lifehacking is just cool.

Challenge! Come up with twelve significantly different ways to serve a single egg. Has to be *just* the egg, can include shell, can’t include anything else (so egg-in-a-frame and such are out). Must be edible. Must have already been eaten by at least two people (not just you and your gullible friend). Go go go go go!

GENERICON NEWS: I’m running a panel about webcomics (and focusing mostly on my own) at Genericon in February. Once I get the day/time confirmed, I’ll let you guys know. So, like… go preregister or something. :-)

    (7) scrambled, sunny side up, poached, hardboiled, softboiled, fried, egg Benedict.

    But the only kind I actually enjoy are scrambled (all the way cooked but still soft), so feel free to correct if any of these are overlapping

  2. Corey says:

    over easy, over medium, over hard, over expert, over dante must die… wait, what was I listing again?

  3. TDStranger says:

    Scrambled, Sunny side up, fried, poached(hard, med & soft), boiled(hard, med & soft), over(easy, med & hard). Yes that is twelve but are variations of the last three. All can be done and ordered.

    Don’t forget Deviled eggs and omelets

    And Rocky Balboa’s personal favorite, raw.

    And how about separating the eggs (taking the yolk away from the white) and cooking them separately.

    Do meringues count? It’s just baked egg white after all.

  5. Sarah says:

    Theres a special way of cooking omelettes- called French omelette I think. Basically you only cook one side on low and then fold the egg over so it sorta looks like an egg pamphlet and then cover it until the egg on the inside looks custardy. They’re good if you can handle the texture difference. Add cheese if you wanna be unsophisticated like that.
    Also, I had no idea Genericon was so close to me! I’m f’sho going.

  6. Baughbe says:

    Powdered is all I can add to the list. Everything else (including Deviled and omelets) require additional ingredients. Although if you really want to get technical, the butter/margarine/oil/etc that you use to cook the egg in can be considered an ingredient as they can significantly change the flavor.

    Hey wait, deep fried in the shell?

  7. Baughbe says:

    Microwaved in the shell. You don’t actually get to eat the egg, but you have lots of fun cleaning out the microwave. (For a really good explosion, coat the egg in nail polish first and let dry, and have an alibi ready)

  8. fic7i0n41 says:

    Well, I think that Denny’s does allow you to add cheese for free, so you can do scrambled with/without cheese and fried with or without cheese on top I guess.

    Personally, we usually like to screw with the staff by ordering like a dozen of the stupid orb cups that they have.

    Everyone forgot basted.

    Don’t forget your eggnog.

    Dude… this is Denny’s. Just order 12 different micro-omelettes and have done with it.

    Bored? I passed it about 3 hours ago <~~~~~Thataway~~~<<<

  12. Isikyus says:

    I can add baked eggs and eggs boiled and mashed with a fork (good on sandwiches).

    My cookbook also has coddled (slowly boiled; allegedly easier to eat when sick), steamed, and “fluffed” (yolks baked in toast with meriunge on top; might be possible without toast if you use a saucer).

    Admittedly, I haven’t tried any of these, but they do appear in a published cookbook.
