How Do You Like Your Eggs?
Today is National Egg Day and I'm celebrating with some over-easy eggs. But what's the most popular way to eat an egg in the U.S. anyway?
The Omelet Reigns Supreme: In a survey done by Yelp, it was found the 27 of the 50 states (Including South Dakota, and Iowa) picked the omelet as their favorite way to eat an egg. It's hard to argue with that one. Minnesota's top choice, if you're wondering? Huevos Rancheros. I've never had eggs that way, but it looks and sounds delicious, and there's a first time for everything, right?
But how do you like your eggs? There are so many different ways to cook an egg, it's hard to choose just one! You can scramble them, fry them sunny side up, over-easy, eggs over hard, frittata, hard-boiled, quiche, deviled eggs, even poach them! See what I mean? You can do just about anything with an egg.
