      that fried egg was so wrong it hurt. absolutely cook your fried eggs in better with a non stick pan. preferably a really small one so you can contain the egg better

          I found 4 med or 3 large eggs, beaten, salted, and left to sit for 10 mins, before heating them on on low heat (less than 100°C) for 5 mins with constant stirring, then cranking the heat up and vigorously stiring, makes the perfect omlette for me. The low heat slow stir makes it very creamy, and the higher heat fast stir finishes it up. Its not a complicated technique and it makes amazingly creamy scrambled eggs.

            I just made my first poached egg! And then my second! It was so good and super easy with this method!

                              Heated olive oil goes rancid. Becomes liquid trans fats.

                                  A matter of taste of course, but those fried egg whites look way to crispy and definitely overcooked. I'd send them back at a restaurant...

                                        I love that Carla leaves in the cracked omelette because isnt that how most omelettes come out anyway. I run around the house showing everyone the pan if I get it to flip over without the inside seeping out of the folded part. A good nonstick pan is a godsend in these cases but timing and a good ear all play a role. I love the realness.

                                          She would hate how I scramble my eggs. First, screaming hot pan, second butter, third, crack eggs straight into pan and use spatula to scramble them as they cook. Quickest and least dirty dish method I've found. Gets the job done.

                                              Chef of 20 years here; if your egg tastes like vinegar, you did it wrong. You're supposed to move it to a pot of fresh boiling water to rinse and finish cooking the egg, as soon as it's together enough to move without breaking.

                                              How are you in a test kitchen but don't know this, when it's literally the proper way taught in every culinary school with proper credentials in the culinary world?

                                              Don't get me wrong, I love ALL of this channel - but that is as entry level as it gets for a professional cook, or chef...

                                              And don't get me started on her overmixing of the scrambled - and pre-salting which makes them tougher( :/ and after correctly stating that dairy in the beggining will make them tough... )

                                                Lemon juice also works, and is more non rinse friendly.
