Shredded swine flesh and chicken embryos. Breakfast of champions (and coneheads).

you can pull the 2 eggs over medium, fried in a small dab of lard, from my cold dead fingers.

but you won’t be able to wipe that yummy look off of my face.

Eggs are a great, nutritious food, extremely versatile. Case closed.

I think I’ll have 2 eggs, 3 links of real pork sausage and buttered english muffin for breakfast tomorrow morning and wash it down with fresh OJ and a cup of hot tea. Hope it doesn’t hurt my 191 cholesterol...oh wait, it hasn’t.

My brother is pathologically disgusted by egg yokes. Which is why, whenever I eat breakfast with him, I always order mine sunny side up and pop the yoke into my mouth in one go. (and if I’m of the mood let a little bit trickle out of the sides of my mouth)

Other than that I’m a excellent brother.

The egg yolk is not an actual chicken embryo. Chickens lay dozens of eggs all the time and a large percentage of them don't become fertilized.

So eat up, and make sure it's runny so I can dip my toast and bacon in.

My cholesterol is better than yours, 202 vs your 191...I only worry if mine goes to low. 250 is a hell of a lot more healthy than 150. Too low, you die.

As a kid I liked fresh egg yolks and pinch of salt on the top. Back then salmonella wasn’t an issue.

When I was a kid we visited cousins in Sweden. They served us eggs. We asked for salt. They looked at us like we were crazy people.

One egg yolk is good for you,
Ten egg yolks are bad for you.
Why is this so complicated?

My ice cream recipe calls for 16 egg yolks per gallon of ice cream. It also includes real cream, half-and-half, and real vanilla beans.

In my case, make that three eggs, scrambled, with about four ounces of chorizo and some shredded cheddar.

It’s my standard camping breakfast, and it just sets the tone for the rest of the day.

I average two eggs per day, usually I have them hard cooked. I can’t think of a more economical source of nutrition.

My cholesterol now is just about perfect 50/50/50 HDL/LDL/triglycerides.

I have a history of high cholesterol. In 2009 I had three stents installed in plugged arteries. I’m convinced the damage was done by consuming refined sugar and enriched flour products. Now I eat all the protein I want, whole grain bread and cereal, and avoid processed food. Feeling good, too

When I was poor and single in my 20s I lived on egg salad and tuna salad sandwiches for lunch every day. Still love the egg salad, now I use wraps rather than bread because we just don't keep bread around any more.

I've got a Sunbeam egg cooker my grandmother left me 27 years ago. It has to be at least 50 or 60 years old. Soft boils, hard boils, poaches automatically and effortlessly every time. I love it. Cast metal, heavy glass egg holder inside, 4 foot cord. Made like a tank.

If you are ever feeling weakly or exhausted, eat a big breakfast at dinner (two eggs, a breakfast meat, biscuit or tortilla, yogurt & fruit) and you will feel like Superman when you wake up.

I've been eating eggs since I was a little child. I am now 50 years old with a sub-200 cholesterol level. I go through two dozen eggs a week easy.

I make my own Egg McMuffins at home. What I do is take two toasted English muffins and put olive oil on them. Then I lay down two fried eggs, three strips of bacon and a large slab of swiss cheese and thus have two of those sandwiches all at once.

Combined with a bottle of Gatorade, it really is the breakfast of champions.

Cholesterol levels are purely genetic and it’s looking like they are completely irrelevant anyway.
